Slight tangent on this, Solars seem like they're inevitably going to end up with comparative advantages at results that you can only achieve through applying skills - like very specifically commanding an army on the battlefield is a lot less substitutable for magic that veers away from skills than simply winning a one-on-one fight, by any means necessary, and so on.Exalts in general can reach similar levels of power in some areas, but Celestial Exalts can do it more consistently, with less effort, and in more total areas than Dragon-Blooded mostly. In exchange, Dragon-Blodoed often have capabilities which other Exalts likely can't do outright, even if those abilities are not necessarily greater "power" besides ability to do such things.
Solar Exalted show this with having the most straight-forward Excellency, broadest and often easiest access to most "splat independent" magics like Martial Arts, Evocations, and sorcery, as well as access to Supernal which allows them broader access to a certain depth of power earlier than other Exalts.
Lunar Exalted show this through strong raw stats due to Exaltation and shapeshifting, as well as a very flexible Excellency, but have less ability to specialize quite like a Solar can. They can equal Solars at the use of moonsilver artifacts, and practice of necromancy, but have to put in greater work to use Martial Arts, although can achieve laterally different power through them if investing. Shapeshifting and the themes of the Lunar Exaltation also just gives them avenues to either do things Solars outright can't (mainly in forms of shapeshifting and some exotic effects, or the nature of Attribute instead of Ability-driven magic), or to achieve Solar-like feats with some extra effort (usually through use of Protean Charms).
(I know that there's some negativity about this from some Solar fans who feel like whatever their Solar chooses to do, they should still have the same "gap" / superiority in results from other Exalted, but it does seem sort of inevitably a feature of how the Exalted have always been defined; that it's inevitable that the areas where skill / shapeshifting+attribute / elements / Fate can overlap less in their results are going to be areas where each splat will have a comparative advantage.)
