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.
Dragoons are fierce combatants who draw their battling techniques from Ishgard's long conflict against dragons. The dragoons' abilities includes a series of aerial moves and precise blows which pierce through enemies.

Dragon Gauge in PvE
Upon learning the trait Life of the Dragon, the weaponskill Mirage Dive will attract the gaze of the first brood, increasing the Dragon Gauge. The icon on the left of the Dragon Gauge indicates the strength of the gaze, up to a maximum of two units.
When the gaze is strongest, you can execute Geirskogul, which changes the gauge from blue to red and grants Life of the Dragon in place of Blood of the Dragon. While under the effect of Life of the Dragon, you can execute Nastrond (acquired at level 70) and Stardiver (acquired at level 80).
Dragon Gauge in PvP
The first brood's gaze strengthens upon executing certain actions. When their gaze is strongest (two units), you can execute Geirskogul while under the effect of Blood of the Dragon. Doing so will grant the effect of Life of the Dragon, allowing the execution of Nastrond, which will then restore the effect of Blood of the Dragon.
