Dragoon (DRG) Cross-class skills discussion
Foresight – Well, I guess this depends on the encounter. If staying alive is absolutely critical, you can take this.
Second Wind – Any class that can take second wind, do so. If you have to ask why, then somethings wrong with you.
Fracture – Not a bad skill for longer fights.
Bloodbath – The heal on this is quite noticeable if you’re a dragoon…
Haymaker, Featherfoot – Again, best in a pair… ultimately not worth the trouble.
Internal Release – a no brainer. Increase critical chance is just too good to pass.
Mercy Stroke – Surprisingly good for bursting down tougher adds.
Mantra – Always decent in a large raid.
