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.





Quest NPC Location Conditions
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. Below is a list of abilities that the Dragoon job can equip to their bar and select to use at any time as long as their timer is available.

As a Dragoon you should be focusing on STR as this increases melee attack power. For more info on how to play Dragoon see our Dragoon Guide.


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.

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.
