Dragoon

Dragoon (DRG) Actions, Traits and Role Actions


FFXIV - Disciples of War - Dragoon
Legend holds that the dragoon tradition was born a millennium past, when the founding fathers of the great nation of Ishgard were journeying to the land promised them by the Fury. Upon arriving in Coerthas, the intrepid settlers were set upon by the great wyrm Nidhogg, the then master of that demesne, and a fierce struggle ensued.
The confrontation came to an end when a young man named Haldrath, taking up his slain sire's lance, landed a mighty thrust that prized out Nidhogg's eye, prompting his colossal adversary to take wing and flee.

From that moment forth, Haldrath became known by the epithet of the Dragonseye, and is to this day revered by all Ishgardians as the first dragoon.

Patch 1.21 saw the introduction of jobs to FFXIV, which allows you to become one of the traditional jobs from the FF series after completing a quest. A Lancer can become a Dragoon by equipping the Soul of the Dragoon item after completing the first quest. The details for this quest are below.

Eye of the Dragon Ywain Gridania, Lancers' Guild LNC 30

For each quest you complete, you will be rewarded with a new ability, while the latter quests will also reward you with artifact (AF) armour that is shown in the screenshot above.


Introduction to Dragoon


Dragoon is a melee damage dealing job which branches from the Lancer class. The job will deal damage using powerful abilities designed to be comboed with one another to increase their effectiveness.


Attributes


As a Dragoon your main attribute is Strength (STR) as this increases physical attack damage. You should be focusing on equipment with this stat. For secondary stats you should be focusing on the likes of Direct Hit Rate, Determination, Critical Hit Rate and Skill Speed in addition to simply boosting STR. However you'll find Skill Speed is generally not worth it.

Skill Speed and Critical Hit Rate are self explantory in what they do. For the other two, Determination is used to boost the damage dealt by all attacks and the amount of HP recovered when healed while Direct Hit Rate is Stormblood's replacement for Accuracy. Instead of a simple hit or miss effect that Accuracy could give, having low Direct Hit Rate for a fight will reduce damage dealt so it is important to improve this stat.


Actions


Actions are skills that the Dragoon can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available. Actions used in a combo will generate additional damage and effects. All Dragoon actions are exclusive to that job.

Role Actions


Since the Stormblood expansion for FFXIV, cross class actions were removed and replaced with the concept of "role" actions. Role actions are more generic as they don't belong to specific classes, but instead to roles such as melee DPS, magic DPS, healer or tank. The Dragoon can equip up to 5 of these.

Name Level Cast Recast MP TP Range Radius


PvP Actions


From the Stormblood expansion PvP was revamped significantly and you can no longer use PvE actions during PvP battles. That means all of the actions above you can no longer use in PvP. Action Points (AP) were also removed. While some of the dedicated PvP actions do have the same name, they will have different potencies or effects. Below are the PvP actions that are unique to the Dragoon. There exists even more PvP actions and even traits but these are not unique to the Dragoon. You can find these further down the page.
