Podcast: Martel joins Fox and I to talk about DRG. Perhaps if you are considering picking up the job then you might want to listen to it: here, or on any podcast platform.

  • This was right before the Gleti's Armor Set or Nyame Armor Set came out. So while a lot of DRGs magic evasion woes were alleviated they are still pretty far below other jobs.
    • This was also long before Sortie came out.

Preference

First off, brush up on the Call wyvern GUI.png Wyvern (Dragoon Pet) page if you never have. There is information in there that I brush over because it is already in there.

For the past several years this job has lacked a guide, and it has been harder for curious players to learn about it. Basic questions about subjobs, weaponskills, or the position of DRG in endgame goes unmentioned.
To be fair I was just going to put some basic sets on a page and call it a day, but that just didn't feel right, and a couple weeks later here we are.

Why DRG?

So in a world where DRK, WAR, and even DD Runefencers exist. Why would you want to be a Dragoon? Personally, my reason is simply because I can.

Dragoon excels in low-to-mid level support situations. It sports a higher Weaponskill frequency over other jobs along with defensive abilities that heavier DDs lack.

Pros:

  • Third highest natural attack behind DRK and WAR.
  • Piercing damage is the most frequent physical weakness in the game.
  • Wyvern benefits come with no direct drawbacks, can not be dispelled, and may be maintained fulltime. Wyverns are also rather resilient on their own thanks to their native -40% Damage Taken (DT) which helps to soak up AoE damage and abilities. Wyvern bonuses as well as other defensive options provide a Dragoon better survivability over other damage dealers.
  • Possesses two separate abilities to reduce enmity. Super Jump is the only ability in the game that provides complete immunity from any and all attacks.
  • Restoring Breath is available regardless of the player's support job and provides a free 2,000+ HP restoration to any party member when properly geared.
  • Your wyvern will always be your friend if no one else is.
  • Has access to three of the four level 2 Skillchain properties natively with the fourth provided via the Relic Polearm. This makes a DRG excellent at skillchaining for extra damage.
  • A DRG in possession of the Aeonic Polearm will have access to what is possibly the strongest 4-step skillchain in the game as well as the ability to easily close Umbra or Radiance level 4 skillchains.
  • Spirit Surge combined with Fly High can provide a nice emergency boost of damage via the capped Job Ability Haste, STR and Accuracy bonus, -20% defense down, and TP reduction effects added to Jump and High Jump. These also can't miss during the duration of Spirit Surge.
  • Angon provides an unresistable -25% defense down effect. When combined with other defense down debuffs this may allow you to cap your Attack to Defense ratios (PDIF) without having to resort to abilities such as Bolster or Soul Voice.

Cons:

  • Similar to Samurai, Dragoon's weaponskills are weaker than that of other DDs, but sport great Skillchain compatibility. You will be pushing quantity over quality.
    • For example Great Sword is absolutely horrible for self skillchaining with itself on a job like Warrior or Rune Fencer, but Resolution goes completely bananas with damage when it is buffed up in endgame.
  • The loss of your wyvern eliminates a great deal of your DD power.
    • The wyvern is on a long 20 minute cool down.
  • In high level support situations it has less power potential than that of other heavy DDs. Which is the reason DRG isn't bandwagoned.
    • Then again people Bandwagon BLU and try to take it to the same high level situations over heavy DDs so why not?

Roles

As a DRG your primary role is to DD with the formation of optimal Skillchains.

As a secondary role you are capable of subbing mage to trigger Healing Breath from your wyvern, but in an era full of Trusts this is generally unnecessary.

Apache, Jump On It!

Understanding your jumps is a fundamental part of playing DRG.

Due to Job Ability Delay, Jumps should be used to reach 1,000+ TP. Otherwise you suffer a two second delay to your auto-attacks.

Which jumps to use:

  • Jump lowers the target's defense (-20% for 1 minute, does not stack with, but overwrites Angon).
  • High Jump lowers the target's TP proportionately to the amount of damage dealt (TP is reduced by damage × 2).
  • These are the bees knees while your wyvern is alive as they will offer double and triple TP return.
  • Super Jump usage is obvious; when you don't want hate. It also reduces the enmity of the player behind you during Spirit Surge.
  • Super Jump can also be used to avoid or stop TP moves, if timed properly.
  • During Two-Hour ability Spirit Surge, it will also reduce the enmity of the nearest target behind you by 50%.
  • Not sure of the distance limit on this, but be sensible.

Spirit Surge and Fly High:

  • Spirit Surge would be a lot more useful if the wyvern timer wasn't a lifetime away. With the old Adoulin era change of the wyvern's presence granting buffs to you it has really lost it's shine.
You lose the superior wyvern buffs upon the use of Spirit Surge as well as the superior TP gain from Spirit/Soul jump despite the fact your Jumps won't miss with Surge active.
So in order to realistically gain the most use from this ability it is best reserved for when your wyvern timer is not ready and you are in imminent danger of losing your wyvern. This will eventually happen, and this way you may at least maintain some buffs.
  • Fly High is at least more useful, although still leaving something to be desired. A minute duration would have been more appropriate given the cool down of jumps with it active is still 10 seconds for a 30 second duration.
So, stand out situations for this would be to eat up your jump timers as it resets them and:
  • You just want a bit more DPS.
  • You are not capping haste and/or attempting to skillchain.
  • You just used Spirit Surge and might as well.
  • High Jump under this situation is nice for lowering the TP of the enemy, and certainly one of the best perks against certain opponents.

Buffs to Jump:

  • In the case of multi attack procs you will also gain extra TP.
  • Relic and Empyrean weapons reportedly do not proc extra damage on jumps, womp-womp.

Jumps and Jump Bonus Gear
Jump bonus gear and the text accompanying it has been inconsistently implemented over the years and does not always work universally.

  • "Jump: TP Bonus" equipment only affects the first hit of Jump and High Jump.
  • "Jump: Double Attack" equipment works with all jumps.
  • "Jump: Accuracy" equipment is assumed to work with all jumps.

Equipment particulars include the following:

Merits

Group 1
Name Description Level Notes
Ancient Circle Recast Shorten recast time by 10 seconds. 0/5
Jump Recast Shoten recast time by 2 seconds. 0~5/5 Applies to both Jump and Spirit Jump.
High Jump Recast Shorten recast time by 4 seconds. 0~5/5 Applies to both High Jump and Soul Jump
Super Jump Recast Shorten recast time by 6 seconds. 0/5
Spirit Link Recast Shorten recast time by 3 seconds. 0~5/5 While Jump 5/5s are an offensive boost, Jump itself becomes a small gain while capping haste.
The real value in jumps is while slowed, continuing or boosting SCs, maintaining AM, or shedding enmity via High Jump, and not as an endgame DPS weapon.
By contrast the 15 seconds off Spirit Link, especially over the course of a longer fight with AoEs may very well save your wyvern which is worth more than Jumps.

Support Jobs

Myochin Kabuto icon.png Samurai
The defacto sub. There is little reason to sub anything else.
This has been tethered to DRG since the dawn of the job, and it likely will never change. That isn't a bad thing though as it really powers you up.
The capabilities of /SAM generally outweigh what any other sub can provide offensively.
Fighter's Mask icon.png Warrior
The benefits of /SAM outweigh the gains of /WAR for Polearms and Staves. There are exceptions though.
There are some builds or situations that make /WAR a good choice even without the delay cap, such as Naegling Blade spam or Judgment against blunt weak foes in Odyssey, but otherwise if you are primarily using 2H weapons then you /SAM.
TL;DR You generally need Hasso to cap the last 1.3% delay. Which makes /SAM significantly better when the benefits are tallied up. In a buffed situation though if you have Haste Samba or Spirit Surge (for the fight duration) then /WAR could be a DPS gain depending on if you have Samurai Roll or not.
Chaos Burgeonet icon.png Dark Knight
This sub competes with /WAR for how niche it is, but without the Fencer for infrequent Naegling-ing. Last Resort would be useful for the 15% JA haste if your wyvern was out of commission. As with maxed out magic and gear haste with no Wyvern, Last Resort will cap your delay, where Hasso will not.
The other silver lining of /DRK over /WAR is the gain of a multipurpose wyvern. This could be useful in some odd lowman situation or in some combo with Spirit Bond.
Dancer's Tiara icon.png Dancer
This has to be mentioned since newer players seem to sub it for some reason. Given the fact Healing Breath exists. Half the wind is already out of the sails here. At the very least you gain Skillchain Bonus, Healing Waltz, and a meh Haste Samba, but really there are no real gain from this sub.
Runeist Bandeau icon.png Runefencer
Highly situational, you will know if you need to sub this against some magical foe, but don't expect it to come into play. It also provides a multipurpose wyvern which heals you at 25% HP, 33% with the AF Helm.
Ninja Hatsuburi icon.png Ninja
Another highly situational sub for avoiding certain TP moves. It also provides a multi purpose wyvern. The main issue I have with that is justifying the use of DRG over another DD subing /NIN in the first place.
Magus Keffiyeh icon.png Blue Mage
Probably the best of the two subs for a defensive wyvern to heal yourself or pt members with. Foot Kick and Power Attack make good trigger spells while Cocoon allows you some hardiness. The rest of the spells are for stat boosts. This really comes into play when you are leveling up to 75 (although Trusts exist), in a shiity Omen card farm, or some other odd situation.
To be fair, back in the day this is one of the things that really made DRG cool. A "heavy DD" that could heal itself? No way. I remember having a blast just soloing lesser colibris to chain 5 at level 58-60. Certainly a sub any DRG should still have, I mean those challenging BCNM or NM solos won't just inefficiently drag themselves out now will they?!
Healer's Cap icon.png White Mage / Duelist's Chapeau icon.png Red Mage
The other sub for a defensive wyvern. Considering you can heal the status ailments of party members after every breath it is hard to justify the -na spells. The best thing this or /rdm can provide are the buffs/haste/better cures, and perhaps the refresh, but then again with finite MP the wyvern needs to be the one curing.

Weaponskills

Polearms:


Unlike certain jobs where you only spam one WS, Dragoon has several to gear up and use many. Mostly due to skillchaining which is covered next.

  • Stardiver - Our strongest WS outside of a few situations. If you can't form a SC due to being surrounded by DDs then you just spam this. The damage on your Stardivers will go up significantly with proper gear and buffs compared to being solo.
  • Drakesbane - When properly geared and using a Ryunohige, this will actually do more damage than Stardiver. Otherwise for ordinary weapons it will not. Drakesbane stands out for damage in Abyssea (not that it matters anymore) and the fusion skillchain property attached to it. Otherwise Drakesbane suffers from ~19% attack penalty and a lower modifier than Stardiver.
  • Camlann's Torment - Another WS that sports solid WS properties. Any very old DRGs will understand when I say that this is just an upgraded version Wheeling Thrust. As such it sports the same uses. Outside of SCing this WS is to be used when you are underbuffed. Which is not to be confused with simply lacking buffs which still leads to Stardiver more than Camlann's. This means against evasive targest where hits of Stardiver are missing and/or very defensive enemies. Otherwise Stardiver overshadows this significantly.
  • Sonic Thrust - Similar to Camlann's without the defense penetration, but on a very narrow conal AoE. This is actually the strongest physical AoE WS in the game. It is also used to create a darkness multistep with Stardiver. Meaning you need to gear it to go romp around on things solo.

Staves:


  • Retribution - This is our best staff weapon skill over Full Swing. Retribution gains a nice 50% attack bonus with better skill chain properties. Just use the same gear set for this that you do for Sonic Thrust.
  • Shattersoul - Really "meh" on DRG, but used to skillchain with Retribution. The modifier is purely INT so honestly I would just forget about maxing it with yet more gear and use the same set you do for Stardiver with SC damage gear on top of it.

Skillchains

No DRG is complete without some Skillchain Knowledge.
SCing is important due to all the extra damage it provides, much more than your weapon skill itself will do. Multistepping, or creating multiple skillchains off of previous skillchains increases the damage of a skillchain more and more each step. The window to create another step becomes shorter and shorter after each. Initially the window for a skillchain starts at 10 seconds between WSs to count. Each step reduces that time down by about 2 seconds until reaching 3 seconds.
Overall thanks to Spirit, Soul Jump, and Spirit Link it is easy to multistep by yourself.

All primary WS properties are used first to create a SC, and if no SC is created then secondary properties are used.

  • So if s WS has a secondary property you wish to use. It won't work unless the primary property is not utilized to make a SC first.

Level 1 → 2:

  • Liquefaction SC Icon.png Liquefaction → Impaction SC Icon.png Impaction = Fusion SC Icon.png Fusion
  • Induration SC Icon.png Induration → Reverberation SC Icon.png Reverberation = Fragmentation SC Icon.png Fragmentation
  • Detonation SC Icon.png Detonation → Compression SC Icon.png Compression = Gravitation SC Icon.png Gravitation
  • Transfixion SC Icon.png Transfixion → Scission SC Icon.png Scission = Distortion SC Icon.png Distortion

Level 2 → 3:

  • Gravitation SC Icon.png Gravitation → Fragmentation SC Icon.png Fragmentation = Fragmentation SC Icon.png Fragmentation
  • Distortion SC Icon.png Distortion → Fusion SC Icon.png Fusion = Fusion SC Icon.png Fusion
  • Fusion SC Icon.png Fusion → Gravitation SC Icon.png Gravitation = Gravitation SC Icon.png Gravitation
  • Fragmentation SC Icon.png Fragmentation → Distortion SC Icon.png Distortion = Distortion SC Icon.png Distortion
  • Fusion SC Icon.png Fusion ↔ Fragmentation SC Icon.png Fragmentation = Light SC Icon.png Light
  • Gravitation SC Icon.png Gravitation ↔ Distortion SC Icon.png Distortion = Dark SC Icon.png Dark

Level 3:

  • Light SC Icon.png Light ↔ Light SC Icon.png Light = Light SC Icon.png Light
  • Dark SC Icon.png Dark ↔ Dark SC Icon.png Dark = Dark SC Icon.png Dark

Empyrean and Relic WSs are the only WSs with a level 3 (light or dark) property. These may be used to create light and dark with themselves.

  • Under Aeonic Aftermath all merit WSs gain a light or dark property too allowing for level 3s while it is active.

You may make a double light or dark SC, but this must be done with a level 2 → 3 resulting in light or dark and then a relic or empyrean level 3 WS following it to create the second light or dark.

  • Level 3 skillchains can not make double light or darkness off of themselves.

Suggested Skillchains

Trishula icon.png denotates the need of Trishula to continue the SC.
Gungnir (Level 75) icon.png denotates the need of Gungnir to continue the SC, and is more of a courtesy inclusion.

Dark


  • Stardiver → Camlann's Torment = Fragmentation → Geirskogul Gungnir (Level 75) icon.png = Distortion → Stardiver = Dark
  • This just adds the option of extending your SC one addition step for more damage as Stardiver already has a secondary property of Transfixion.

Light


Staff


That is about it, Staff gets crap weapon skill properties.

Equipment

Weapons

If it isn't listed here then don't bother with it!

Eminent Lance icon.png Eminent LanceEminent Lance description.png - Likely your first big kid Polearm.

Upukirex icon.png UpukirexUpukirex description.png - This should be the goal set for stepping up to a better weapon after the Eminent Lance. If this is somehow too lofty of a goal then settle for a KumaloKumalo description.png.

Areadbhar icon.png AreadbharAreadbhar description.png - The base weapon is weaker than good ole Upu, but stronger after augmenting it especially if you need the accuracy. Given the monetary investment to this mediocre weapon I would honestly skip it for the next one.

Olyndicus icon.png OlyndicusOlyndicus description.png - Surprisingly this weapon is going to be one of the best you can use before an Ultimate Weapon or endgame NMs, with very high or maxed augments. It blows away the previous weapons. Generally players shouldn't bother with augmenting Alluvion Skirmish Weapons nowadays due to the time/monetary investment, but this polearm can go further than other weapon types due mostly to lack of better alternatives until much later. Besides, you can say that you carry around a big Olyd dickus, and that is worth something too, right?

  • Augment this with 30~38 DMG+, Double Attack +5~6%, and Acc/Atk +15~20.

Rhomphaia icon.png RhomphaiaRhomphaia description.png - This is a weaker weapon than a properly augmented dicus, but augments are fixed so perhaps you will prefer this instead.

  • Augment this on path B

Habile Mazrak icon.png Habile MazrakHabile Mazrak description.png - This is an easy replacement to your Rhomphaia or a less than perfect (even slightly) Olyndicus. This is one of the least desired items from Warder of Courage, and as a result you may be able to easily pick this up. the Warder is much more difficult than Hanbi though which may limit access to this for some.

Annealed Lance icon.png Annealed LanceAnnealed Lance description.png - Never drops, but if it somehow did then it is roughly equivalent to the Habile Mazrak. The icon may look pretty, but it is the same glowy lance that comes from Bismarck, and is pretty ugly. It is one of those sort of things you might consider looking at after a few drinks though.

Lembing icon.png LembingLembing description.png - This is a tad better than the Habile Mazrak. IF you don't have a REAM, and hate augmenting weapons or farming Odin then this is for you.
Which it shouldn't be because you love being an awe inspiring DD, right? The issue with this weapon is mostly that it comes from a tier 4 HELM NM in Reisenjima. The same one you need in order to clear Aeonic Weapons. So chances are that if you are capable of farming this NM for the polearm then you are already capable of making Aeonic or better options already.

Reienkyo icon.png ReienkyoReienkyo description.png - Assuming that this augments the same as the Zulfiqar Great Sword and assuming reasonably good (not maxed, but still annoying to get..) augments. Then it should be better than the Rhomphaia, Habile Mazrak, Lembing, and a perfect Olyndicus.
It will definitely shine if the chunk of accuracy provided by the weapon and augment comes into play, but that is obvious. Overall, this is likely the weapon that will hold you over until Geir, Shining, or REAMD weapons.

  • Augment this with DMG+, Atk/Acc +, and DA+.
  • For example, DMG +22, Acc/Atk +20, STP +5/6 would be a keeper with room for improvement, aim for Double Attack.

Geirrothr icon.png GeirrothrGeirrothr description.png - You would be excused for not knowing anything about Odin's various guises, in this case Grímnir. After all, who has the time to keep up with that long winded "some fancy tree with too many consonants holds nine worlds together" crap? Notwithstanding your mythological knowledge, Geirrothr beats out all non-REAM polearms before it with the exception of a properly geared Shining One, of which it is far behind.
At the end of the day if this falls into your lap you may skip ever augmenting a Reienkyo as it beats that easily.
Without taking the jump bonus or defense down into account, this is roughly right behind a non-augmented Gugnir. Obviously if you only had that then you would augment it at least a little bit, but who am I to make such suppositions?

Ikenga's Lance icon.png Ikenga's LanceIkenga's Lance description.png - Not sure why SE releases some of the things they do. This is roughly similar in power to Geirrothr before augmenting, but costs several million, and doesn't drop while farming Hjarrandi. If you can get this then there isn't a reason to not just make Shining One. There is just no reason to augment this.
Shining One icon.png Shining OneShining One description.png - Typical SE tactics. Create years worth of somewhat tiered weapon progression only to release some arguably easy to acquire weapon that invalidates all of them, but still loses to upgraded REAMD weapons.
♪Oh Shining One, One, Mr. Shining One, please shine down on me.♫
While it is strong on its own, the caveat here is gearing for the unique feature of this weapon. It grants the ability for all of your weapon skills to crit. This crit rate is not dependent on even using Impulse as it applies to any weapon skill, and includes other factors such as crit merits, dDex, critical rate or damage gear, TP Bonus, etc. Thus, while your optimal WS to spam is Impulse Drive as per the weapons damage bonus. Your optimal set isn't merely WSD based as would ordinarily be the case, but a mix of WSD and crit. These last couple of perks send this weapon soaring (jumping?!) over your Odyssey or Odin re-re-remake weapons.

  • Save TP until around 2k+ with TP bonus when using this weapon.
  • No, Kaja Lance is not worth using unless you have no other weapon.

There is a set for Shining One Impulse in the gaggle of sets below.

  • The only issue is requiring a Pulse Weapon for the final stage.
  • Good time to remind you of Emporox's Ring icon.png Emporox's Ring, and that storing 25,000 merit points with him will provide you with one for free if farming T3 Escha Zi-Tah isn't in the cards for you.

Staves come into play generally for AoE magic damage or Undead. Corses, Skeletons, Narakas, Yggdreants, etc all have a -50% damage taken to piercing. The undead variety also have a +25% weakness to blunt damage.

Gozuki Mezuki icon.png Gozuki MezukiGozuki Mezuki description.png - This comes from an Aeonic T4 NM and it is rather hard to win over random mages in your LS gear whoring. It is debatable which is better between this and Exalted HQ SCing with Retribution.

Exalted Staff +1 icon.png Exalted Staff +1Exalted Staff +1 description.png (Su2) - This staff is easy to find on the AH or craft. The WS damage for Retribution is the redeeming factor on it otherwise it would lose to the Mezuki easily without it.

  • Find it on the AH.

Malignance Pole icon.png Malignance PoleMalignance Pole description.png - This is a more defensive option. Something I would use for Cataclysm cleaving Divergence San d'Oria, for example.

Blurred Staff +1 icon.png Blurred Staff +1Blurred Staff +1 description.png - Staff for playing around with AoE Cataclysm burning. This would apply to content such as Omen, Divergence, Sortie, or AoE Master Level parties in the Crawlers Nest (S). It may lack some INT and a whole 2 MAB compared to the next staff, but the TP gain/excess TP from OAT for fTP will outweigh that. It also has a magic accuracy advantage which can potentially be a problem for a DRG due to a lack of good incidental magic accuracy pieces.

  • Find it on the AH, rarely.

Reikikon icon.png ReikikonReikikon description.png - The "Blurred Staff +1 is never on the AH" staff.


Naegling icon.png NaeglingNaegling description.png - The sword everyone loves. When do you use it though?!

  • When you are looking not to skillchain with others who are also generally using this weapon.
  • Otherwise Shining One won't SC with itself.
  • Damage resistance. Something like Sheol C is a prime example.

Otherwise, despite how gross it can feel to use this weapon as a DRG. As without the TP Bonus of a Blurred Shield +1, losing delay cap, lacking nearly any SC options, watching as your TP gain and Jumps sputter compared to a polearm. However, the job is rather well suited to utilizing it as an important utility option.
In general you throw on sub WAR for Fencer, and go to town with just about no meaningful changes to your TP or WS sets compared to polearm. Otherwise, people get fancy with Dual Wielding a Kraken Club in the offhand as /DNC. Thanks to the JA haste of a wyvern you don't need to use DW equipment, and you aren't completely lacking haste like a single wielding WAR would be.


Mafic Cudgel icon.png Mafic CudgelMafic Cudgel description.png - Just when you thought you couldn't feel anymore gross there is this fucking thing.
Thanks to Sheol C this became something you should be making use of. Staff WSs are really weak, unfortunately, where Judgment is basically close to a Savage Blade for blunt weak monsters. Meaning that this will tear through skeletons a lot better than your staves will.
Unlike with Naegling, there is no option to offhand a K club as you need to sub WAR or SAM to get access to Judgment, but at least you can make good use of Fencer.

  • Same as with Savage Blade, WS at around 2k TP.

Ultimate Weapons

Augment Rank 0
Rather than amend the entirety of this to suit REAMD Rank 15 augment weapons. I figured it make sense to leave the info for both. Afterall, the target audience of the guide likely needs this info as much as what proceeds it.
Gungnir is third in the hierarchy of non-augmented Ultimate Weapon polearms and dead last in the R15. From a devils advocate position this can be said of it:

The defense down proc may be helpful to party damage as may be the accuracy boost from Afterglow. After all, we aren't always playing in these perfect or rightful situations people argue over online.
Any situation where that +60 accuracy really comes into play will see Gungnir outperform the rest of your options. This would require accuracy to be below 80% though, and likely then the party is also struggling which makes it all rather moot to me.
Accuracy is really easy to come by anymore compared to when this was released, and you can't nearly match the power of other weapons by swapping gear around to make the most of it. Support jobs and especially gear have come a long creeping way.
Therefore, you may eventually find yourself in the right situation for it, especially if your Stardivers are missing. If you finally do then this weapon may shine if the fight isn't already a lost cause.
The last (only?) silver lining is that Geirskogul is our only distortion weapon skill. Given the 40% boost from Gungnir and that the weapon skill is a Camlann's Torment clone, this makes Geirskogul the best option for closing light or gravitation opened darkness which is of some real merit if you coordinate.
If you take the time to gear it properly then Geirskogul also performs better than Camlann's in general, especially when your attack is capped. It isn't about "just changing to SAM" if you want to skillchain either. You are here because you want to play DRG, damn it.
Overall, this should be the cheapest and easiest R0 Ultimate Weapon for any DRG to make and call it "Good Enough".

  • Favors a 5-hit Double Attack build, and situations where accuracy is starved.
Aside from even the fact that Farsha receives STR for it's split property weapon skill and Rhongomiant does not, this is still a great weapon, and comes in at #2 in the ranks.
Unfortunately while it wins on spreadsheet paper it doesn't beat a Trishula in reality or via the simulator unless some uncommon or unrealistic situations occur:
  • If you are maintaining AM3, but are getting amnesiaed.
  • If you are underbuffed against serious targets with no COR rolls, especially Samurai roll.
    • This is generally only ever a slight win of roughly ~1-2% and is easily negated by any skillchaining in a fight, even if you aren't attempting to create any.

No, the 50 VIT doesn't "count for something" as people who really want to like this may grasp at, and no the Afterglow really doesn't help anyone unless they use a critical hit weapon skill with no AM of their own overwriting it. This weapon has a wider variance in it's final DPS than Trishula due to the AM3 so a tie is ultimately a loss in those two ways.
Stardiver is also easier to gear up in strength than Camlann's as well.
The only real reason to make this weapon is if you were somehow gated from an Aeonic or buying wins for one. This obviously is almost our best R0 weapon, but there is no solid reason to invest such a good deal of time and money into what is at best an "almost" and for most a "nope" in performance.

  • Favors a 5-hit Double Attack build. Requires Aftermath level 3 active to be a real contender, but luckily Jump makes this easier.
  • With this weapon you should be a bit more conservative with your Soul and Spirit jumps in order to maintain AM3.
Stardiver is overall our best weapon skill, and this weapon is the best for spamming it. That is right this weapon is the wyvern's meow (they meow, right..?) and really brings the DPS and skillchaining house down upon the mobs.
Not only does the weapon provide the ability to create Umbra and Radiance, a feat which Dragoon may do solo thanks to Jumps, Wyvern Haste, and Spirit Link. However, (with AM active) it allows for spamming darkness over and over via Stardiver spam.
With skillchains taken into account this weapon should defeat any other. Succeeding in this is a different matter entirely when you have several DDs all weapon skilling at once though, but even then SCs do happen regardless.
Once our mightiest weapon to rule them all, but now arguably it is the worst R0. It is still better than ordinary weapons, but time has not been kind to Ryunohige.
Job Gifts have increased our native double attack by 15%, and over time better multiattack gear has also put a large dampening on the Aftermath effect for which this weapon is known.
Not that it was a nail in the coffin either, but Fighter's Roll (as well as COR) is more common now than it used to be before Geomancer existed. In the end the lower base damage on the weapon after all of this is it's own undoing.
Augment Rank 15
Running with the big boys and the gil buyers.
Back to the bottom of the pile, old friend. The R15 update was not kind to Gungnir. Between Gungnir and Mjollnir are we really to believe the all father, god of death and wisdom, can't make a better ultimate weapon?
Gone is the accuracy bonus advantage as Aram snuck into Gungnir's house and ate it's lunch. Even Trishula has a large accuracy bonus now, and both weapons (especially Trishula) are significantly ahead of Gungnir.

Lets also take a moment to laugh at how puny a 5% DA bonus from AM is. Not only does Aram gain a large constant attack boost free from AM, but it has a 50% chance of follow up attack. So if you suddenly had 100% DA then you would still have another chance for yet another attack on top of that.
Speaking of, don't forget that the 16% chance for 2.5xs melee damage only applies to the first swing of a Gungnir. You can see how everything just comes together to hold the weapon back. What was once great has been picked away at by every other polearm.

But her emails! the jump bonus!? Woah, yeah, hold on, had to hold back my enthusiasm there for a moment. I suppose anything seems better than 5% DA.

On paper the defense down bonus is a better idea than in reality. The reality being that it has little practical use. Go ahead, disagree with me in the DRG thread, but really when is Gungnir's defense down ever seriously important outside of making up for poor planning?

The only real factor left is Geirskogul, and the need to go out of your way to make the most of this weapon. Even if that was putting out better numbers than Camlann's Torment, at least that skillchains with itself. This is not to say there is no niche left to scratch here, but you really need to go out of your way.

The final nail in the coffin for Gungnir is not how useful it may or may not be for DRG. It is the fact that for all the gil you are spending, you could have skipped all the trials and hassle to buy an Aram.
At ~200k per S. Astral Detritus it costs ~119m gil; on top of the cost for everything before that. Why the hell would 99% of players even bother making Gungnir in the face of that?

Remember when I bemoaned the lack of STR on Rhongomiant? Well, SE said "hold my beer" and tossed 20 on. What a swell bunch of guys. Isn't that right, Gungnir? Oh, wai-

If you are indeed using this weapon at R15 then don't be shy about spamming lights with Camlann's over missing out on skillchains with Stardiver. Situationally, of course as are all things, but Camlann's is certainly no slouch with your wyvern alive and this weapon at R15.

At any rate, Trishula and perhaps even Ryunohige both got the better end of the deal overall. So what was once said still applies. This weapon is no better than #2 now in bad situations and perhaps even #1 with the absolute worst of buffs. Even worse is it falls to #3 now in the best of situations. Unless you need to find a new hobby, is that really what you would put time into?

So, why, right? Well, Physical Damage Limit is why. Once you cap pDIF, our new trait as well as the Dragoon's Collar +2 sees the weaponskill damage from Rhongo fall far behind that of Stardiver with Trishula or Drakesbane with Ryunohige.

The best Rhongo offers up now is use for when you aren't capping attack, cap accuracy, but still just loses to Trishula anyway without SCs. So let's call this our struggle weapon! As in I struggle to see ever wanting it. It is still always better than Gungnir or Aram, but once again why even bother?
While a rough ranking isn't everything. In the case of Rhongo you'd need to compare obtaining a Mythic with obtaining an Empyrean. All the while it is far less involved to just obtain an Aeonic or even just running with Shining One for a while you get your act together.

Float like a butterfly, and Stardiver like a bee. Trishula is the all around undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. You should always imagine it speaking to any detractors in a manner similar to that of Richard Sherman, Mohammed Ali, or Rick James.

Don't you ever try Trishula with those sorry polearms. It is so bad it makes medicine sick. It is one of the baddest motherparses of all time.

Well, well, well, look what the cat dragged in. From last to first, second, third, or even fourth. What a whacky ride for this weapon.

As you may know, all of these rankings include the right equipment and appropriate swaps. None of this means anything if you used each weapon with the same set. Each weapon was is simulated in various likely situations and with various buffs to test how things turn out.

Thanks to the Collar +2, PDL trait, newer crit equipment, and the huge boost from R15 Ryunohige gained. It may narrowly come out ahead of all options spamming Drakesbane with capped attack, the right gear, and Samurai Roll without Fighter's Roll. In which case we invoke the "SKILLCHAIN DAMAGE!!!11" as well as plain old "human error" clauses and all is right in the world again.
Ryuno then falls slightly behind Trishula again with Fighter's Roll which, if your CORs are as savy as pirate ought to be. Should be on in these situations anyway. Meaning only a poor choice in a capped situation sees Ryuno at #1.
It still feels good though, doesn't it? That is until you remember that SE keeps nerfing the effect of Frailty in newer content (Divergence, Odin, and some ambuscades, etc). Which means it is far less likely than it once was to take capping your attack for granted. Still, this weapon is about as solid as it gets if you put the most into it.

It is with the loss of capped attack, and thus the large gains from Physical Damage Limit+ as well as the attack penalty of Drakesbane (still the right choice for this over Stardiver) that we see a sharp decline back to #3/4. With even Aram (B) potentially overtaking it while Rhongo firmly steps into the #2 spot. That synopsis is all with Chaos/Sam roll on which is a standard for these situations and with how massively popular COR is now. So it is because all the aforementioned as well as the reminder that modern day multiattack gets in the way of the AM on this weapon where as it helps all the others.

Path B, there, your question has been answered and you may close the guide now.

As mentioned, this polearm is a solid performer over Gungnir and sometimes Ryunohige, but comes behind the rest. It cuts out all the hassle of trials and everything that comes along with that. Even better, you could argue it is somewhat free to upgrade.
While you can buy the upgrade items and finish instantly. With the level of content as there is at the top of the game. Why wouldn't you want to play with your DRG in Divergence just as a place to have fun while you upgrade the weapon/collar +2 and earn a little gil? Reinvest it in more heroism crystals and boom, you are actually playing FFXI for a change.
Which is somewhat of a crazy concept nowadays I suppose when faced with mercing/bottling gil or "use code NEWYEAR2030 FOR 5% OFF". Even worse, you might have to be a little bit patient, oh my, anything but that!

Oh, and yes, This should beat your Shining One, but it is up to you at that point if you want to invest into this or just make an Aeonic or Mythic. You certainly could SC with an Aram better than a Rhongo or Shining One would for sure, thanks to the follow up attacks, and that is worth something if you make the most of it.
However, if you really love DRG and your group is embracing a Subtle Blow strat then this weapon has a never ending niche on it thanks to the +25 Subtle Blow II.

Armor

Haste Caps:
Magic: 43.75%
Equipment: 25%
Job Ability: 25%
JA Hastes:
Haste Samba: 5-10%
Hasso: 10%
Spirit Surge: 25%

Overall delay cap -80%

Common scenarios:

  • 1) Capped magical haste, Hasso (10% JA), and your wyvern (10% JA) at max paramaters you only need 17% in gear haste to cap delay.
  • With capped JA Haste (DNC or Spirit Surge) you only need 12% in haste gear to cap delay.
  • 2) Only 30% (Haste II) magical haste and capped JA delay allows you to cap delay with 25% gear haste.
  • Otherwise you probably aren't capping delay. See: Attack Speed.

The following sets assume capped haste.
Gearing DRG for Max DPS is not black and white as situationally several things may change the "best" sets. Certain weapons favor more STP than multi attack and vice versa. Frequently one piece of equipment may be the best and after changing another slot it no longer is. Corsair buffs alter the landscape significantly too

TP Sets


All tiered sets are run through the spreadsheet as /SAM, capped accuracy and haste, -52% defense down on the mob, and with no attack buffs at all unless stated.

  • All rolls are on their lucky value. None of this 11 or bust shit.
  • The Stardiver tier was run as the WS set to the corresponding TP tier set.
  • Sometimes a slightly weaker choice was made due to assumed situational needs or the players position in the game at that point.
  • Often I chock this up to being better on paper than in reality. I could make some example here with Windbuffet +1 vs Ioskeha +1, but you are already likely scrolling through this guide to the equipsets so who cares?
TP sets abide with the following criteria:
  • Run against level 136 apex bats in the spreadsheet.
  • More temporary Alluvion pieces were run at lower or half value augments to determine if they are worth wasting time on
  • Run against level 136 Apex Bat in the spreadsheet.
  • 53% defense down, with +5 Chaos Roll, and standard Honor March/Minuet V.
  • Max Tier: 119 Abjurations (HQ), Expensive HQ Synths, Odyssey R15/20s augments, and ridiculous non-DM augments are considered.
  • Only your WS set really changes at pDif cap.
  • I dropped the full buffs set because it hadn't changed outside of Ultimate Weapons for years.
  • Overall I wouldn't recommend obsessing over STP for x-hit builds. Best in slot pieces of gear are often still the best even if they break your build.
  • Stardiver benefits from TP overflow and DRG has a 26% chance of Conserve TP procing on a WS which distorts the value of STP as well.
    Somewhere around as close as 80% of your overall damage is in your weaponskills, and sometimes boosting your WS damage over maintaining a build is more beneficial. This is what spreadsheeting guestimating is for.
    For high end min/maxing everything is in flux based on your situation, buffs, weapon, and the opponent. There is no definitive best answer here, but you can get best guesses by spreadsheeting and simulating the gauntlet.

Ultimate Weapon TP Sets

Unlike the max tier, these are run with great, but not perfect augments.

  • Spreadsheeted with the max tier Stardiver sets; Ryunohige uses the max Drakesbane sets.
  • Max-buffs: -83% Defense, Soul Voice, +7 Samurai (II), and Fighter's (V) rolls on top of the Mid-buffs.
  • Some choices were made for practical reasons. Ptero Brais over Valorous or Moonlight Ring over Petrov for survivability.

TP Accuracy Sets


  • Based on the Trishula Ultimate Weapon Mid-buff set.
  • Your base set nowadays has so much accuracy that you only manage relatively small gains for large DPS and DT drops.
  • Carry acc food, but get better buffs at this point.


Jump Sets


General Note: As long as you use the main Jump+ pieces listed in these sets then simply using the rest of your TP gear is fine, and the correct move.

  • You are picking up peanuts here outside of Jump specific pieces. Changing suboptimal pieces for optimal ones results in about 0.5-4 DPS a piece.
  • STP is generally more important for jump than multiattack is. Your DPS matters more than your Jump damage.

Ptero. Mail +3 icon.png Ptero Mail +3:

  • Is an optimal choice for Jump/High Jump.
  • Due to the double/triple TP gain on Spirit/Soul jump it is a good competitive option.
  • Probably your best bet for Spirit Jump.
  • I would never use it for Soul Jump. The TP bonus is too great to not maximize.

WS Sets


Stardiver Sets


Note: The Gavialis Helm icon.png Gavialis HelmGavialis Helm description.png is an amazing piece for newer or DRGs still working on their sets. It is easy to obtain, and lasts for awhile for Stardiver.
During the applicable days it is like wearing a more powerful Elemental / Fotia Belt with stats on your head.

These days are earthsday, lightsday, and darksday.

During Trishula aftermath this helm does not extend to watersday and iceday.

However, Gavialis is eventually replaced:

  • It is nice that the item lasted for countless years until this point though.

  • These two Impulse sets are likely still the best regardless of the weapon.

Notes:
  • If you are in Divergence or have double dark weather use the Hachirin-no-Obi over anything.
  • If you don't have Orpheus and have weather, then use the Obi.
  • If you don't have Orpheus or weather then use the Eschan Stone.
  • DRG lacks powerful MAB options. Without MAB buffs then this won't feel nearly as good as from a mage job.

Notes:
  • Is this set worth it? Yes, because the wyvern breath goes off with this gear while you are under JA delay.
  • This means you can deal over 1,000 damage in unresisted breaths with this set which is free damage.
  • The gains are several hundred damage over wearing little to nothing. Which is more than going after certain DD gear pieces will get you.

Notes:
  • Remember, Steady Wing is 30% of the wyvern's max HP so this gear will add a significant value to the stoneskin.
  • Spirit Surge is 25% of the wyvern's max HP for the boost, so just use this set with the Pteroslaver Mail.
  • Note: Neither Steady Wing, nor Spirit Surge accounts for a quick macro in then out of gear. See this post.

Spreadsheet

The DRG Spreadsheet is managed and updated by Braden of Sylph server.

Use it to compare gear in various situations.

Note: This is an old version pre Jump changes, REAMD weapon augments, PDL, and various fixes.

Simulator

New to the field of figuring it out, is Austar's DRG Simulator. It is my favorite tool for testing out DRG DPS. While the spreadsheet makes it easier to compare theoretical sets, this is used to test if the spreadsheet was actually accurate enough.
