DRAGOON class, is it worth getting ep11 patch?

#1

current build (hop,high,barb)
not sure if i should replace my highlander for dragoon, is it worth it? or should i stick to highlander?

#2

I’m playing it right now and I honestly don’t know. It is decent, but there is a lot of micromanagement. It still feels like a gimmick. There is no reason that Dragon Soar is a SLASH type not Pierce. Highlander is getting changes soon and I’m thinking of dropping Dragon for Doppel again.

thank you, that’s one problem out of the way. now with the highlander buff and nakmuay buff i have to choose from the two.

regarding Dragoon Soar, it seems to do an Upward Slashing animation when you use it, maybe that’s why they made it Slash-type?

I know, but the whole class is based on pierce synergy. It makes no sense.

I’m liking it but could’ve been more … serpentine, dragon fear and dragon fall could use a more faster animation.

Besides that it found a good spot for my lancer, hoplite’s lack of aoe and synergizes well. I also have a hop,goon,barb and works well too (dragon soar will stack that barb buff very quickly), working with hop’s pierce is no longer sp consuming because of the changed helmet mechanic so that’s great too.

Dragoon is in a bit better spot than before but still lack in some aspects.
Although it doesnt have the stupid SP cost than before Lack of AOE in skills, Clunky animations and mediocre damage at best make it a meh class. It has some good aspects but not everyone can make a good use of tthem

Kain ^ already addressed the big problems but I’ve mained a dragoon for 18 months now and I just want to confirm his sentiment. 4/8 Dragoon skills have legitimate arguments to be made for a single point investment (Serpentine/Gae Bulg/Dethrone/Dragon Fear). Two of them (Serpentine/Gae Bulg) are arguably worth 0. The lack of AoE on any skill (except Dragon Fall) makes it poor for large groups of mobs as well.

They removed the SP cancer of the helm but it is still a melee class that often has a hoplite base… and the helmet has -5 movement speed. A close-range class with poor hitboxes did not need a mobility nerf and they have yet to remove that. Instead all Episode 11 gave us was an insane buff to Dragon Tooth and a 2nd OH to Dragon Fall- both skills which were already good in Episode 10.

I love my dragoon but it is objectively bad. There are other classes that do what it does better.

So… the dragoon memes will make a comeback?

#10

what highlander buff?
Nakmuay got nicely buffed but Highlander was usually a piano class for me with meh-average dmg
At least for the Doppel-Barbarian-X build i usually want to avoid Highlander since it already has many skills for the rotation

:frowning: was hoping to comeback solely for a better Dragoon life since it has always been my favorite class.
