I have started noticing tons of DRGs 52+ wearing these for parties. I don't know if there's something new I don't know about but last I checked there's much better leg gear to wear when in a party.

I"m a 75 drg and I see the help in wearing these and not wearing these, true they arent that great but for soloing I wear these cause puks are dragons and enhanced ancient circle helps and more wyvern hp helps his breaths, for prty though I would have to choose my barone because of the str and attack, for all the people who say that ur a bad drg for not wearing the af then u are a noob u have to look at the big picture, drg af isnt that great in exp prty it was made for soloing since drg was made to be a soloing job, if u want to say drg af is the best then good for u but actually try it out compared to other armor before u say this, and yes I have drg pride but I'm not an idiot

this quest makes me mad, im a lvl 55 drg and i still dont have my drachen brais. Ive tried to get to the NM 3 times and no one knows how to get there(even the drg's that have done the quest). Im starting to think that the brais arent worth it and i should just not even bother getting them.

im in the Asura server, so if anyone who wants to help that knows the way {Help me out!}characters name: Ziltch

Really noticable increase on healing breaths, not so much on breath attacks but still doing better. Not sure if I maybe missed something but I'm sure my healing breaths are now doing on average an extra 50~ hp back. which is nummy :) Up until now I'd been wearing Republic subligar / crow hose, so these are a big improvement over both. (well, the 5 attack is nice I guess, but meh, its a subligar -_-)

The Tiger NM you have to fight for this can hit pretty darn fast, and his hits land solidly if your tank isn't ready. When I went to get this, I didn't have the luxury of knowing Paladins or Warriors who I could get to help. ^.^;

My group consisted of me (50Drg), 3 60ish Drk's, a 64Rdm and a 59 Blm. One of the Drk's tanked it, and he was taking damage -fast-.

And yeah, just as the previous poster said, get someone after 60 with shadows and you'll be ok.

When I was get ready to do this I asked a few an they said I need a full alliance of 60+. However when I was ready to fight the tiger I couldn't find anyone to help me so I looked up all Drgs 70+ I asked one and she said she'd help me. So we went into Eldiem got through with minor problems ^^;; but yeah got there killed the Tree for TP and then I spawned the Tiger. Well it was alittle hard but we killed it nps. So point is you don't need a full alliance I'd say have maybe some one who can take the hits from the tiger since it hit me for 150 and her for 120 but you do not need alot of ppl to do this.. at least that was my experience hope it helps alittle lol. Oh and Thank you to the Drg that helped me.

-A new feature regarding the storage of artifact armor has been added.
Artifact armor for each job consists of five parts: Head, Body, Hands, Legs, and Feet.
If you trade all five parts to one of the NPCs listed below, you will receive a key item called a "claim slip" in exchange for your artifact armor. You can retrieve your armor at any time by talking to the NPC and paying 1000 gil.

-Taulenne (Northern San d'Oria)
-Sinon (Bastok Markets)
-Tesch Garanjy (Windurst Woods)
-Caruvinda (Lower Jeuno)

Dragoon AF
# Jul 08 2005 at 8:42 AM Rating: Decent
Woah Woah Woah guys, Let's calm down shall we? lol

Anyways, DRG AF is by far the coolest looking AF in the game (Dragoon Pride). Now I'm level 42 DRG and the AF Lance is the best lance they got out there. I had the other lance that gives you +2 AGI and on the Midgarsomr server it's 80k+ gil -.- So I would much rather kill the lame ass NM for the AF lance and use that, and get my 80k gil back! XD

Now as far as how GOOD the AF armor is.. Well that's yet to be seen (can't use it yet) But i'll just take all the *GOOD* DRGs advice and use it ^^

Well peace guys

Now on to the point.

How do I go about obtaining the first glorious peice of DRG AF?

Oh, and btw, 2 Dex isnt that much, guaranteed it helps for the accuracy+ and Critical Hit Ratio+, but boosting your wyvern is so much more helpful.

I got this suca yesterday, and got extreamly luckly along the way, got my paper for LB1 and engraved key from the retarded overgrown tree known as Atuh. Tiga comes out and smacks me for a good 200 (ima level 50 dragoon btw) and my pally vokes it off me. Quick fight, it went down easy, had a 65 pld, 71 drk, 60 rdm, and a 59 mnk and myself helpin. Ole' Penta thrust scored a nice 300 on it even though its above level 60, which makes me proud to be DRG and soon to wear the purple pimpness. good luck to all you DRGs out there.

All who doesn't wanna wear this because (let's say) RSE gives alot of great stuff(DEX, STR) shouldn't be playing a DRG. DRG's strength is their wyvern, and that's that. Not DEX and whatever, wyvern can give massive amount of damage with the right stuff. Ofcourse the DRG itself is strong, but then DRK would be better.

Take care of your wyvern. It can and will save you, atleast once.

The 10% HP+ really helps, it makes it live longer and increases its breath. Besides, we get more HP (not much but it helps) and resistance to Earth, also increases our Ancient Circle effect. All in all, this is not in the least junk. Also, for the matter of whether u should Dismiss it, I do agree that it SUCKS to have your wyvern killed, but you have to think of it like this. If the wyvern is dead, then you lose its extra help. If you Dismiss the wyvern, you once again lose its extra help, although you can summon it back whenever. If you combine Spirit Link and Dismiss though, you can keep it alive and have it out mostly to beat the crap outa things. If somethings about to do a STRONG AOE, then use Dismiss. Once you summon it back, when an enemy uses that again and you cannot Dismiss it, then you can use Spirit Link to keep it alive while you wait for Dismiss to become active again. From doing that, you still get a kickbutt wyvern on your side, and you keep it from getting it's butt kicked. I'm not against anyone, and everyone has their own strategy, but more people should just shuttup instead of bitching at other strategies, and just try seeing if they work, and how to make them better. If the strategy really does suck, well then help the person instead of calling them a dumbass! Mine works pretty good though, if anyone wants to try it out.

Also, Elendil isn't one of those stupid people, he actually has a brain. My wyvern has saved me plenty of times, ESPECIALLY on links and solo (healing breath or finishing attack when both HP is around 1 hit kill). So please, try to think before posting something, because you seem like a complete jerk when you don't.

Actually, at level 50 my wyvern has 500 HP. So it's probably going to give her a little more than 50 HP. Of course, that 50 HP is going to increase my wyvern's breath attacks/heals, so I'd be glad to have it (if I can just get a stupid party together to kill that NM...)

The funny thing, though, is that if you add that 500 HP to my HP at that level (a little more than 800), that gives me, if not more, about the same HP as a Galka MNK... *ponders*

Scorpion Harness is much better statwise than most DRG armor available...

When you reach endgame...you'll learn to favor stat over look....because trust me, the mandatory optical hat for melee is not the coolest thing you'll ever wear, nor is the assault jerkin if you don't plan on wearing scorpion harness

How is favoring better stats for better performance in exp party make me a bad DRG?

I offer you one simple question: What in the heck does the Scorpion HARNESS have to do with Drachen BRAIS? They don't even go in the same slot. There's really no sense to this entire debate being on this thread... considering the Brais are probably the best leg gear available for Dragoons at this level.

Yeah, +4 vit is way better than +10 acc. Just because you think the AF looks cool doesn't make it any better.

Quote:

Consider this, Wyvern's max HP determines the amount of HP it heals with healing breaths, and could potentially increase its elemental breath damage (provided that the HP remains full at 110%, it will do more damage with the brais than without) If you ask me, that's not too bad of a deal.

That's funny, I would think the AF pants have better stat bonuses. 2 dex from your RSE? Wow... +1 accuracy over %10 more HP to your Wyvern, the thing that makes you a Dragoon and not a jumping warrior... Also, you get more of a HP bonus from these pants... So forget your dex, buy a life belt, buy some sniper's rings and wear your AF pants lol

I am an elvaan so I may be biased here, but my RSE leggings give +2 dex and +12 hp, which I think more than justifies wearing them, over my drachen brais. I know Tarus get a nice STR bonus for some of their RSE. I think the STAT bonuses more than outweigh the extra hp to the wyvern or extra DEF.

This is actually one of the most useful AF pieces for a DRG. The wyvern's breath effects are based on it's total HP- so the more HP it has, the more damage you get from a breath attack, or the more HP you get from a Heal Breath. Coupled with the AF helmet and the Wyvern's Perch, a DRG can become a *very* effective healer.

Steel legs have 1 less def than these (ok ok so the +1 has the same def) so your not getting any better from those .. and these are free and look nice ^^, most uber pair of pants in the game ... no ... but a very nice thing to have and worth the effort ... yes

Uhm... 10% can make a HUGE difference. If you're posting this, you must be a very low-level DRG when your Wyvern doesn't have much HP. Would you complain if "all" a PLD's 1st AF did was enhance Holy Circle and give them 10% more HP? No way! You'd be complaining it was too overpowered. At higher levels, when your Wyvern has several hundred HP, 10% means a lot.

this af is only worth it if you're making your wyvern tank while soloing. otherwise, it's useless. any smart drg would dismiss thier vern for any monster that does many AOE's...spirit link has a long recast time.

... I'll admit that AOE's are very bad for my Wyvern... but that's not a good enough excuse to dismiss my wyvern...

hmmm, To be honest I can't really remember the last time my Wyvern died in battle... Spirit Link *does* have along recast time, but if you use it wisely and learn how to position your Wyvern to minimize damage and status effects...

And oh yeah, 10% is a lot of HP. I don't really see the logic behind you statement >-<

Uhh... any "smart" Dragoon would use their wyvern, even if it meant they would eventually die. Every little bit helps. O.o

: ) you make it sound like this pieces gives your wyvern REGEN. well it doesn't.

"Uhh... any "smart" Dragoon would use their wyvern, even if it meant they would eventually die. Every little bit helps. O.o"


when your wyvern dies, guess what, you just lost the majority of your damage anyway + gotta wait another 2 hours to resummon. so by your logic, i should keep my wyvern out when fighting bones? cause the *10%* more hp to my vern is gonna miracaliously keep it alive when it's pummeled by high damage AOE and blood sabers.

i'd rather dismiss my vern when fighting damaging AOE monsters, then resummon when not fighting them. also i'm just gonna ignore elendils post cause he just sounds like one of those *desperate to defend their job with mad anger and stupidity* people

this AF piece is JUNK. the piece with regen on the other hand, has a bit of worth

This piece of AF is certainly not junk. It helps me keep my wyvern alive that much longer. "Spirit Link and You" - Learn to use your Spirit Links wisely when the whm is readily available with enough MP to toss you a cure without interrupting the chain. NOT just when your wyvern is heavily damaged. My wyvern has "died" (as in without me dying and it leaving) a total of 2 times since I got Spirit Link and I've never had anyone complain about my usage of Spirit Link once. Also if you didn't spam Dismiss and Call Wyvern you wouldn't really have to worry about the 2hr recast time cuz it would already be up IF your wyvern did manage to get itself killed. This equipment has already saved my wyvern's life before (was hanging on by a thread when we pulled through) and it should be even handier when combined with the equipment (forgot which one it was) that gives your wyvern HP regen.

...isn't the whole point of this equip to keep your wyvern from dying...?

Besides that, you can't be worried about Defense as a Dragoon.. You are a damage dealer. Rely on others for defense and try to keep your Spirit Links up

dude... who the heck do you think you are? junk?! its only the first AF armor piece you get, and Af weapons are only supposed to be good the level you get them duh... you gonna use your af spear through to level 75? unlikely... time to stop criticizin' and smell the coffee. its a good piece, and a good dragoon would know that. until you realize that, please keep your mouth shut.
