Since Bungie has made it their mission to "correct" certain exotics, I thought I'd give them a hand. This was a deeply spiritual journey for me, as I discovered things about Destiny 2 that I hadn't known since it's launch. Like, Dragon's Shadow is an actual exotic. And had you told me it's original perks, I would have assumed to it to be a legendary mod for armor. Now, I am not a game developer, but I decided to take the least used exotics (I wonder why) in Destiny 2, and try my darndest to make them usefull, but most importantly, exotic. So, without further adieu. [u][b]Hunters:[/b][/u] [b]Aeon Swift[/b]: using any class ability (grenade, melee, dodge) temporarily increases the recharge rate of abilities for all fireteam members.

Anyone who think celestial should do the highest single shot DPS in the game, and grant over half your super back, has no idea what the term “balance” means.
