    Guide: Dragoon Job Quests

    I did this up for our LS members, but I figure I'll share it with the community too. If there are any glaring error, let me know. I was running on adrenaline when I recorded this info It should be mostly spoiler free.

    ***

    Here is a "how to" on how to unlock Dragoon, and obtain all the Dragoon Skills along with the Dragoon JSE (job specific equipment). If the JSE weapon is a quest like these, I will add it to this guide in 1.22.
    To begin the tale of the Azure Dragoon, you must be a level 30 Lancer and a level 15 Pugilist.

    Still to do: Add maps.

    Open the first gate by standing in the circle after killing the mobs.
    Avoid poison in the next main room by standing in safe spots.
    Do not step in the pools, you will take extra damage.
    I suggest pulling a few of the mobs back to you where it is safe, then proceed with moving forward towards the right, and down the hallway.

    To start this fight and have it count, you MUST BE ON DRAGOON.
    Once the timer starts you may switch Jobs/Classes.
    Kill The 2 Bosses Greywin and Wyrmblood

    Strategy
    Our Party (after many trials): PLD, WHM, CNJ, THM DRG X4
    Start the fight, swap jobs/classes and let timers reset for buffs.
    Communication really helped us deal with hate resets and glowing AoE enemy skills.

    Phase 1: Good luck
    Dealing with Wyrmblood
    - PLD immediately grab hate on Wyrmblood. Your role is to kite and keep your HP up while the healers look after the rest of the party (occasionally healing you when you need it)
    - Be cautious when kiting, the is an open world instance and you can exit the circle fairly easily by mistake.
    - Wyrmblood hits HARD even on tanks with full buffs. Regular attacks will do upwards of 900 dmg.
    Wyrmblood will use Jump and Elusive every so often. When this happens, hate resets. Wyrmblood stops moving before Jumping so everyone in the party can pop enmity reduction skills. If you get Hate, kite Wyrmblood back to the tank.

    Dealing with Greywin
    Note: Greywin is Lightning based. Thunder is nearly useless here.
    - All the rest of the party, begin attacking Greywin immediately. Hate will be bouncing off of all of you throughout this. Throw everything you've got at Greywin. Attack from the sides, as Greywin has a brutal Cone magic attack and rear Line attacks.
    - One healer try to keep AoE stoneskin on the DD group, they're going to need it, along with strong heals.
    - Occasionally he will Glow Purple. When this happens, DD SCATTER in all directions and kite him until he fires off his ability. This will keep you all alive, or help you take minimal losses. Odds are 1 or 2 of you will get hit regardless.
    - At 25-30% He will permanently glow. At this point if you are not already, burn him down with all you've got. He will go down believe it or not.

    Phase 2: Converge on Wyrmblood

    - This phase is relatively straight forward for a while. Keep kiting if you need to recover party MP. Converge on Wyrmblood and cease kiting when ready. Healers keep up Stoneskin on the party when possible.
    - Burn him down,but keep an eye out for enmity. Although it shouldn't be a problem at this point.
    - 50% He will begin using Ring of Thorns every so often, expect AoE damage that is tough to avoid from here on out. Ring of Thorns hurts, but save second wind if you can spare it.
    - 40% Be ready for Dragonfire Dive. It's tough to spot, as visually it starts like a regular Jump attack. When he lands, you'll be taking a whole lot of damage in a fiery display of awesome. Pop second wind and healers work to get everyone back up to near full health.... because...
    - 10% Dragonfire Drive Part Deux. The last ditch effort to take your party out. I hope your party was able to heal up properly, or else you might be in trouble. WHM comes in handy here, as they can pop Benediction. (Our group used Benediction & Sacred Prism + Cura) After surviving this attack, he should go down.

    Congratulations
    Enjoy the extremely satisfying conclusion to this story.
    Head to the Gates of Judgmenet and speak to Alberic X35 Y18
    You Learn Dragonfire Dive
    You obtain the Drachen Mail

    Very good job! FFXIV is lacking in this kind of guides!
    Thumbs up!

    ~
    Edit: I'd like to add that on Fatal Seduction, Stollenwurm is a very hard mob. It says his level is 53 but you'll need 3 or 4 players to kill it (the more the merrier).


    Also, my setup for Into the Dragon's Maw was:
    GLD GLD, CNJ CNJ, THM, DRG DRG
    It went pretty well, would've been way faster if we had an 8th player.
    Strategy was basically same as yours, a GLD with the drg, and his personal healer, and the rest of us fighting Greywind, THM helping healing when necessary!

    Yeah, super guide. The colors are nice, and the details set me up for a single successful run through. Wish there was a guide this nice for each job.

    Hey, would you mind if I published this on mooglebox with your name at the top of it? (jetchan@mooglebox.com or reply here).

    Something i just want to add: When you tank Greywin near the bridge and Wyrmblood on Partys Spawnpoint, you can avoid the hate reset alltogether - Resulting in an simple tank and spank fight.

    With enough distance between the two they wont help each other anymore.

    We had 2 GLA, 2 CON, 4DRG!

    Last fight. We tried 4 times doing PLD x2, WHM x2, BRDx3 and DRG to avoid pet AoE but failed every run, then BRDs switched to MRD and DRG and won w/o problems.

    First off; great guide! Been looking for something like this the past few days.

    I have a question tho, how many of these quests are one able to solo? I'm not lvl 50 yet, but hoping soon and want to do these, but which ones (if any) can I do alone?

    As a level 50, you could solo the first 3 without too much of an issue. After that you start getting into things like Aurum Vale, and U'Ghamaro Mines where a party is required. You could solo 2/4 of the Double Dragoon quests.

    For the Stollenwurm in Fatal Seduction, we rocked it with a party of 8 Dragoons, so I didn't bother to post a strat. He definitely requires a party to kill, but I'd say with party organization can be taken down with a group of 5.

    I wouldn't really say a group of 5 is required. I managed to kill him very easily with 2 CNJ/WHM, and myself as the DRG.
    There wasn't very much need for heals, so I'd wager 1 decent CNJ/WHM to assist any bold DRG's out there can take the bad boy down. He has a high health pool, but doesn't hit very hard or very often.

    I would agree with this.

    I'll take your word on that. We steamrolled him, so it was hard to get a feel for the fight on a strategy level.
