Dragoon wearing Artifact Armor

Lore

Of all the things that are symbolic of the nation of Ishgard, few are more recognized than the dragoon. Born amidst the timeless conflict between men and dragons, these lance-wielding knights have developed an aerial style of combat, that they might better pierce the scaled hides of their mortal foes.
Taking to the firmament as though it were an extension of the land, they descend upon the enemy with every onze of their bodies behind the blow. It is this penetrative power that characterizes the dragoon.
—Game Description

General Information

Dragoon is a polearm-wielding job that specializes in lances, leaps, and a piercing style of combat. They evolve from the class lancer. It is a melee damage dealing class specializing in single target dps. Dragoons have all the abilities and traits of Lancers. The most important stat for the dragoon is strength, which increases attack power. The level of your Dragoon is equivalent to that of your Lancer.
