On this page, you will find any job changes and skill updates for Dragoon in Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail (Patch 7.0).

1.

Dragoon Action Changes in Dawntrail

In Dawntrail, Dragoon has been left quite similar in actual playstyle to how it functioned in Endwalker. Some skills were removed, others were added, but the overall feel and gameplay loop remain largely the same. If you enjoyed Dragoon in Endwalker, you will continue to find joy in the Job in Dawntrail. In addition to receiving new follow-up actions similar to Mirage Dive Icon Mirage Dive for both Dragonfire Dive Icon Dragonfire Dive (Rise of the Dragon) and Stardiver Icon Stardiver (Starcross), we also received brand new visual updates to both Vorpal Thrust Icon Vorpal Thrust and Disembowel Icon Disembowel called Lance Barrage and Spiral Blow, respectively.

1.1.

New Dragoon Abilities and Weaponskills in Dawntrail

  • Drakesbane Icon Drakesbane is our new fifth hit to both combos. It will replace both Fang and Claw Icon Fang and Claw and Wheeling Thrust Icon Wheeling Thrust on the hotbar after hitting either one as the fourth hit of the combo. It lacks a positional and is learned at level 64 - yes, 64 - instead of the original trait at that level which had the weird wording for our fifth hit.
  • Winged Glide Icon Winged Glide replaces Spineshatter Dive entirely. It's an enemy-targeted gap-closer which deals no damage. Spineshatter Dive no longer exists.
  • Lance Barrage Icon Lance Barrage is a direct upgrade to Vorpal Thrust Icon Vorpal Thrust. It will automatically replace the skill once it is learned at level 96.
  • Spiral Blow Icon Spiral Blow is a direct upgrade to Disembowel Icon Disembowel. It applies Power Surge as well and will replace the older skill when it is learned at level 96.
  • Rise of the Dragon Icon Rise of the Dragon is a brand new follow-up skill to Dragonfire Dive Icon Dragonfire Dive. When pressing Dragonfire Dive, you will gain a new buff that lasts until you execute Rise of the Dragon Icon Rise of the Dragon.
  • Starcross Icon Starcross is a brand new follow-up skill to Stardiver Icon Stardiver. When pressing Stardiver Icon Stardiver, you will gain a buff that lasts until you use Starcross Icon Starcross. Starcross Icon Starcross is, strangely, a melee-range action, and it does not share Stardiver Icon Stardiver's excessively long animation lock. As such, you can double weave with it, thankfully.
  • Battle Litany Icon Battle Litany now has a 20s duration, up from 15s.
  • Various skills received potency adjustments.
  • Dragon Sight no longer exists.
1.2.

Dragoon Trait Changes

  • Life of the Dragon now is executed automatically on pressing Geirskogul Icon Geirskogul. There is no more Dragon's Gaze to build up. On pressing Geirskogul Icon Geirskogul, you will receive 3 stacks of a buff that will each allow you to execute one Nastrond Icon Nastrond over the duration of your Life cycle. Nastrond Icon Nastrond now has a 2 second recast, allowing you to execute these quite rapidly - once per gcd spin. In addition, our new Life of the Dragon also increases all damage dealt by 15% for its full duration.
  • At level 64, instead of being a weirdly-worded Fang and Claw Icon Fang and Claw and Wheeling Thrust Icon Wheeling Thrust, we now just learn Drakesbane Icon Drakesbane, which is the fifth hit of both combos, now, all the time.
  • Like all Melee, we receive a boost to Second Wind Icon Second Wind and Feint Icon Feint to increase the power of both - 800 potency heal for the former, 15 second duration for the latter.
  • Other than that, everything else is merely traits referencing our new skills or simply increasing potencies of actions we know.
