Dragoon does not have an "I need the mob dead right @#%^ing now" button, if that's what you're trying to ascertain.
Where have you been for the last year?
RR/GH/Apoc + Drakesbane = 3-5k dmg on IT xp mobs which is on par with most of, and even surpasses some of the "good" Empyrean WSs that other jobs get. In xp alliances Drakesbane pretty much makes "mobs dead right @#%^ing now" and with how ridiculously fast DRG gains TP with the new jumps you can typically fire them off pretty rapidly. Plus it's not too shabby as a DD on larger prey either. I've hit stuff like Orthrus for 4-5k+ easily. Just because you're a gimp doesn't mean everyone else playing the job is.
