The Dragoon....Follow

Long have I been a Samurai amongst the lands of Vana'diel, studying and training hard to become the best that I could among the rank of fellow Samurai around me. After dedicated hardwork and practice I had obtained the impossible, Ochiudo's Kotes, Sniper rings, and the most testing piece and yet most fulfilling... the Haubergeons. Though something was missing, I couldn't quite place my finger on it. But I would roam along Rolanberry Fields in thought. Along my typical route in the Fields I saw a figure along the horizen, flying valiantly along his side was a Wvyern. I blinked as I saw yet another coming from the opposite hill, as they passed one another, I saw both these adventurers stop for a mere moment nothing longer. It was a silent mutual understanding as they both saluated one another and continued along their way. Days later I walked through Jeuno, I saw the same silent code of honor among these warriors labeled as Dragoons. There was something oddly satisfying as I watched these Dragoons treat their fellow brethren with the utmost respect. That was the day I laid down my Great Katana, and picked up the Lance of the Dragoon. It is and will be the best decision I've ever made in Vana'diel. No matter what fellow adventurers think of us, we stand proud with our Wyverns flying high, ever vigilant and ever faithful...

Of course respect should be had by all. But I chuckled to myself when reading Synergetic's post because being a Dragoon, I do have a sense of honor and a certain "comraderie" with other Dragoons. We are generally easy to spot, especially when not in towns. I don't think in general, people are a Dragoon, just to be one. You don't get Dragoon to sub on another job, alothough it is fun to use (Jump with Great Axe!). It's not just another job, you almost have to desire to be a Dragoon. Also, the Dragoon story was probably the best of all the jobs, so that adds to it. I just like to say finally, that I am PROUD to be a Dragoon.

Good post - actually got goosebumps from it lol - maybe you should be a novelist irl. Anyhow, i totally agree, there is definitely a comraderie and respect amongst us dragoons for our fellow dragoons.

A few days ago i was lvling my white mage (waiting for a rdm friend to catch up to my lvl 50 drg so i figured i'd lvl some other potential subjobs) and saw dragoons on my way back from the dunes. For every dragoon that wasn't running too fast, i casted a cure2, shell, and protect on them. They kindly thanked me, and i told them my main job was a drg & "Long live Dragoons!" they smiled and were very appreciative of the support.

Btw Synergetic, my sincere congratulations on your accomplishments as a samauri - that type of dedication & passion for one's job should recieve the utmost respect (in my book) regardless of one's job class. To now have such a dedicated player joining the ranks of Dragoon is truely an honor. Best of luck to you in your new career

Ahhhh.... The remeberrance of how it looks to see a fellow DRG salute one another. In my Opinion DRG has a secret code of Honor you'd expect from a samurai but yet there is no honor when two samurai's cross paths. When two Dragoons cross the same path they need not to salute or /em a single thing because they know that they have seen what they want to see and that is another member of the DRG family. With My lance(+1 ^^) on my Back and Ember at my side. I will defeat the opposition, I will do all I can do, I will show that damn cocky DRK that im just as good. I am Razieal The Dragon Knight and I have a Dragon's Pride.


btw you should be a author cause that was a very dramatic incident which wasnt as serious as you made it sound lol.

I'm a newer drg and I salute every drg I see. The sad thing is all jobs should feel the same way. Sure there are tons of war ( per 30 lvls more then anything), blm, whm, etc, but you all play the same job. If you see another player, show them so respect. I just wish everyone would understand. You should only get tired of ppl what can't play their job while; never the job. Lvl hard.

Honorcode of Dragoons

I just want to say that I was psyched about being a Dragoon till now. I have started my journey in the dreaded nest of hell in rolanberry. We are the ones who wait longest out of all the jobs. We are the overlooked job YET we truely learn the virtue of patience. We are the ones with over a hundread hours of play time, yet little of that time is actually "playing." So I salute thee fellow dragoons who watch their whm, blm, pld, friends ascend to high lvles while you wait for an invite, and I salute those Dragoons who have leveled high enough to not care if they get a party invite. (I'll be content when I get all the AF)

Hail to you all!

My secret dragoon handshake:
/em does The Secret Dragoon Handshake with <t>
/salute motion
/wait 1
/fume motion (i'm galka so it looks cool but i guess u could make it anything you like)

Excellent. Excellent!

As an aside, I would challenge you to look at your servers and see what the least numbered job is post 35 (Because thats when leveling subs stop), and see where Dragoons fall out. We truly are the few. I would have it no other way.

this is sorta a perk too. as long as there's little competition, unlike w/ wars and plds, there aren't many of us around the nest so pple see us as a rarity...at least on seraph. i just wish there was a way to get this info out to all the other ppl who just think we're dumb and don't have the patience to stop and think.

#25 Oct 20 2004 at 1:20 PM Rating: Excellent
Synergetic first and foremost outstanding post, very well written and true. I read a post not long back on the Dragoon forums and it spoke of each individual that chooses Dragoon is due to what it represents and the honor Dragoon Warriors have between themselves from the past FF till now, (also because it is fun as hell to play). The point you made I feel a lot of us as Dragoons have felt at one time or another and I just think it is ironic I read your post after playing yesterday, it happens all the time but yesterday was different. I was running threw Valkurm Dunes about to zone into La Theine Plateau when a Dragoon came threw the other end, we both paused seeing each others Wyverns flying above, he /Waves as he is running bye so I stop in my tracks turn and /Salute him. What transpired next was cool, he stopped running came back to where I was standing and /Saluted me back, then /Tell's me Thank You. I /Tell him back Good Luck and stick with it and YW for what. He /Tell's me that his run from Jeuno on foot he had /Waved to everyone he saw and I was the first to say or acknowledge him back. We Spoke for about another minute about Dragoons and armor but then ended with a /Salute to each other and turned away to continue on with our adventures.

Quote:
I saw both these adventurers stop for a mere moment nothing longer. It was a silent mutual understanding as they both saluted one another and continued along their way.

Synergetic I love what you wrote and if you don’t mind I would like to add to your post and ask other Dragoons of there experiences either asking for another Dragoons help or an “in passing” story so the rest of us may hear it, and to everyone else if you are on Carbuncle and see Archangels please stop and chat and if I can help with anything, even with killing the Dragon to get the Job just ask. Thanks for the post and see everyone one the server.

Excellent post. That is what being a Dragoon is all about. Even at level one, I would get waves and salutes from Dragoons in full AF. It's a certain respect that we give each other, since we are one of the most rejected classes in the game, and they know how hard the road ahead is. I'm proud to be an Heir to the Holy Crest.

I wrote this a week or so ago. I didn't post it here because the intended audience was those not familiar with what dragoons can really do..but this is for all of us. This is Me and this is We.

What are you?

I've weathered the storm of the above question, from naysayers of other jobs and from those of my own. With the prompting of Muse disguised as a thief defending her position as a puller, I have found my voice to answer...

I am a Dragoon.

I am a Dragoon. I am not the Father of Deception, I intend to stop the perpetuation of lies. I have rightfully earned the power you perceive. The scales of my armor represent those of a transmuting serpent. I recognize a need and fill it.

I am a Dragoon. I can protect you. I can fight with the vitality and stamina of a warrior. My taunts and misdirection allow a shadowed thief to deal crippling blows in relative safety. I work with my companions in war, my paladins, my ninjas, my warriors, calling back rampaging creatures and protecting my mages.

I am a Dragoon. Nature’s electricity flashes in my reflexes. I can fight with the lithe capabilities of the thief and the samurai. I've been trained in the art of silent and explosive power. And I am a Dragoon. I will not cower or crumble at retaliation.

I am a Dragoon. I can even save your life. My linage did not determine my destiny, I chose it. My path first took me to another school. I was a healer and a magician. I mended wounds, not caused them. I taught these skills to my corded companion and now, she heals you my friends as we consume our prey.

I am a Dragoon. For moments, I can fly. At times, it saddens me that I can't offer this freedom to others. So many of you have such heavy hearts and thus are shackled to the earth. Please do laugh when I jump. It's much more fun than it is funny. It's the closest I can come to bringing you with me into the skies.

I am a Dragoon. I bring a beloved and loyal companion. She won't criticize you, she never stops. All she asks if for are brief breaks to rest her ragged wings. For all her loyalty and bravery in battle, she’s entirely dependent on others for her health. She and I have a bond I could not possibly ever explain. Bound by heart-break, we defeated our bitterness. We carry internal as well as the external scars. She is silent, she is power, she is mine and yet I am willing to share some of that with you. I owe her my life and she owes me hers. You will never find more conviction to prevail.

At one point in the history of my kind, I was your choice to expedite the demise of our prey. Alas, this artificial enhancement was recognized and for the good of all, abolished. Many assumed this was a fatal blow and to many of my fellows, it was. But I am not one of them. I live.

I am a Dragoon. My introduction to the order came in the form of betrayal. I don't shy from your scorn and sneers. There are no barbs you can throw, no twisted words that could possibly poison me more than the wails of my own in their fathoms of self-pity.

I am a Dragoon. I am a Dragon Knight. I fight with the old world dignity of my order. I fight to resurrect and nourish the forgotten honor.

Beautiful writing you two. I've looked at other forums and ours is the only one with great role playing like these. We understand this game and for us, partying isn't a chore (but looking for a party is :P). anyway yeah, i had a run in with a fellow drg a while back. he was getn'chased by a quad in lonschetet and i jumped on it and it died. i said no prob and, as a joke, said, "you owe me now." That's when a terrifying strolling sapling came a long and he jumped on it and beat it to a pullp in a couple of hits. "There, repaid," he said as we saluted each other (we both had secret drg handshake macros) and went on our ways.

I got papyrus last night, guess who helped me.
A random Drg although he was not the only one,
had a 64rm help for nothing as well.
The drg only asked to skill up, we found a chest and after lotting he ended up with a nice scythe, what did i care, papyrus was my goal.
After around 20 lichs we came away with papyrus and managed to get out without dieing even once. Especially lucky since the doors closed inbetween me and the hls, i didnt move and got out alive.
Thank you, Basir (drg) and rm that I cant remember. DOH

A few days ago I noticed a Hume F with a spear, so I /sea <t>.
Turns out to be a 30war so I ask, /t are you doing the DRG quest? She replies yes, how did you know? I just told her I had a feeling about it (:P) I ask if I can help kill the dragon, she says yes and we head to ghlesba. Once there her 50+ RDM friend comes in with us. Needless to say the RDM didnt even have to draw his sword as well as the person I was helping hanging out in the back as to not get hit by anything (forgot if it had AoE or not). After I was done slaughtering it, she said thanks. I replied with, no problem, now go have fun being a great DRG.^^ Felt really good helping someone become one of us.

Great post you guys, rate up for everyone! /cheer

It truly takes honor and pride to walk through Vana'diel bearing the ever criticized title of Dragoon. I got the job a week ago and now at 32, am still loving this job better than the rest of any i have tried. You'll see on a few of the threads in this forum, I have stuck up for us quite a bit, though my rants were sometimes immature. It makes me happy to see that some people still have faith in us, and even happier when new dragoons are satisfied with the choice they made!

Good Luck out there! <take care>

I left the title of dragoon some time ago myself for the ever loved Paladin job, but I am back now and I intend to do my best to reach the top! Parties are hard to get somehow, but when you do your job correctly no one can whine about it.

Please indulge me. You can write well, and put alot of emotion into your post... I am verry intrigued by your words and your talent.

Would you please post again, in detail... the "long version" in YOUR words of our DRG quest?

Theese are the phrases to which I refer. I was somewhat rushed towards the end of Flag quest.

I currently am a 28/14 WAR/MNK and i can't wait to be a DRG!!!! I didnt know that DRGs have pride like this! i know thier rare.. and i was amost swayed to not become one b/c of ppl telling me they suck, but hey! If u are any other class... your pretty much alone... but w/ DRG.. evry other DRG is your brother!! (or sister) What a brotherhood!!! Maybe its because there are so few of us, or mabe it is b/c we are so misunderstood. But in either case i can't wait to join the brother hood!!! Say hi if your on Gilgamesh my name is Miraj.

This thread is awesome. It's talk like this that got me wanting to become a DRG and now that I have,I couldn't be any more proud of that decision.

Very nice writing overall, though.

I would like to take a moment to thank a fellow drg on carbuncle, Sanosake.

Last night I recieved a /tell from him (i do not know him) asking if i needed the holy lance. I told him that i did not yet need it since i was only lvl 50, so i was content with my mythril lance for the time being. He then explained to me that he had recieved this holy lance for free from a more experienced drg when he was in need of one, and now he was passing it on to me. At first i declined, saying that i couldn't take such a generous gift from a stranger, but he persisted in his desire to pass this tradition down onto me. I asked him to what did i owe this honor, and he explained that I was the only drg online with a search comment (something he percieved as a sign of intelligence), and that the only thing he asked of me in return was that when i eventually outgrow the lance, i return his kindness by passing the lance down to another similarly deserving drg.

Prior to this, i had always felt a since of kinship with my fellow drgs. There is a mutual understanding of the hardships we endure to persue our honorable proffesion that binds all drgs together. This act of kindness, however, brought a renewed vigor to the pride i have in being a drg.

Thank you Sanosake

Mitthrawn,
I must find someone worthy for that as well on Leviathan.
Being I am just 51 myself it will be a while, I must never forget.
Thats spectacular comradery.

Wow, nice confession. I really admire you guys. I mean, being a monk, I had very few party invites. As a Dragoon, I bet you guys get even less. If anything, people should invite a Dragoon over a Drk, but what do I know.

After I get my new account up (Dam bro messed up my old one.) and re-lvl, I'll be able to join the ranks of the other Bahamult Dragoons. (Sadly, I've only seen 2 my whole time playing on the Bahamult server.) So, any Bahamult dragoons out there, look for Demodraken, the low lvl War.

Btw, why does the Bahamult server have so few, when its named after the king of all Dragons? Just a random thought.....

howdy... today i started on the drg job quest...needless to say i didnt have a good time in the maze. To be honest it kinda sucked, but u know what, who cares cause in the end itll be worth it to get ma wyverrn. Up until recently i was pretty set on being a bst or rng, figured it would be cool to train pets and all or shoot stuff up. But then on a lark i decided to start using a polearm just for the heck of it. After that it was over. Next thing i know im using the polearm more, and loving it. Plus a pole arm with sneak attack is very fun. Then one day as i was playing, someone asked if i was going drg, when i asked em why, they said it was cause i played like one. I thought about it some and stewed on it, cause at the time i shared the general consensus that drg was a lousy job. Not really a tank, not really a dealer or a puller. But that is becaues drgs are all of em combined. A drg is a jack of all trades with a nasty habit of making the kings of those trades look stupid. It was after that conversation and the insight that followed that i realized, deep down in ma gut, that there was only one adv. job for me....Dragoon. So tomorrow i head back to the maze and keep heading back until i get that egg. Cause in the end im a dragoon, maybe not in job yet, but in ma heart and in ma playing style and ability.
May your targets be soft and your blows critical

Excellent post! I am lvl 35DRG and just getting to the nest. i have seen both sides of the fence, those who love tho have DRG's in their party (usualy a higher rank) and those who shun us. Of course i already use to this because i am a galka and my first job to lvl 30 was a RDM. I never thought of DRG as anything then just another adv. job, I started this game with the intentions of going on to DRK. Then I did the DRG quest, at first just to have all the adv. jobs. Then i lvled it to lvl 10, just like all my other jobs (noticing a trend here?). But while lvling with Raiden at my side I grew to not only like DRG, but to love it and I vowed that this would be my job in vana'dele. So here Raiden and I sit patiently outside the nest to continue our journey in Vana'dele, and to join the high lvl ranks of fellow DRG's. To those of you who already made it I /kneel respectfully before you, and to those of you just starting, /welcome /bow. If you are on the Ramuh server, just call on me if you need help. Raiden and I would be happy to assist you.

Well i did it. After all the running around, and erand running i got the drg quest done. Ironically this time i had a lvl 54 drg help, which made the maze easier and the dragon fight a breeze. Now im off to go farm, then lvl ma drg. Cant wait. By the way, Arcane of fenrir is the one who was responsible for helping me. Not only is he the leader of a really good linkshell, hes also one of the best and nicest players ive met, but could probably be a poster child for what it means to be a drg. If any of u other drgs are in Fenrir, and need an extra bruiser not afraid to take hits and cover butts, look me up.
