Dragoon was and is a great job for me. But as some jobs its missing something it needs to be awesome. Its not related to damage rather our cute little pet called the wyvern. Into this I'll bring comparisons from other pet based jobs. we Dragoons seem to be the pet based job with least options with our pet. Sure we can heal our wyvern with a recast timer ability but that's mostly about it. Unless you count our useless 2 Hour ability.
Pup can modify the armor of their puppets hence changing their looks and behavior. It improves stats and makes it stronger. Why can't we get any armor for our dragon or even more better why can't our dragon grow as we level up? By the time we reach max level it would be the size of Fenrir. That brings another pet based job into the equation. Summoner. Why do they a get a cooler dragon than us? It might be a summon draining mp but when I saw that electric dragon summon I felt I was being given a poochie as a DRG. If Summoner has such cool summons we should be able to have one cool dragon comparable in awe to wyrms or other huge dragons which simply shock you with awesomeness. I'm not asking for a dragon the size of Fafnir but just something close to the max size of a pet.
How about Beastmaster? Beastmaster can feed its pet and send it to attack just as summoner can send his carbuncle to pull. Pups can also send their puppet to attack. We have to sit down to heal our dragon and we have to attack ourselves so dragon will attack. I want more control over my wyvern and I want more variety on my wyvern. Why should all wyverns look the same? How about bringing some Chocobo raising into the mix. By raising it and taking care of it with a raiser it could grow stronger, bigger and even change color. Call it a sort of AF quest for your dragon.
How should a dragoon be reinvented in FFXIV?
