FFXIV 3.2 Dragoon (DRG) Best in Slot (BiS) Gear

3.2 UPDATED! DRG Best in slot guide! “I dropped blood”. DRG Lore buy order, Melding, Pages & Normals, more!

Give them the STICK with your Dragoon and kit it RIGHT with our DRG BiS Guide for 2.4! Dragoons have FINALLY something to be happy about. They are the only DPS class this time around with NEAR PERFECT STATS on their items! BiS is possible with ZERO SKILLSPEED. Gearing up this time around is a no-brainer. In contrast to other classes, 2.4 Dragoon BiS is SET IN STONE.

No fluff at all. The DRG BiS set in 2.4 is made for sticking it to your enemies without any BS. Even WHERE the gear drops is completely amazing (All T10 and T11, only ring in Phoenix)


2.4 DRG Poetics Tomes Buy Order

So what do these other Dragoons buy with their poetics in order?

  • Weapon (See notes)
  • Chest Dread is t11.
  • Legs Dread is t13
  • Boots Dread in t13
  • Ring : Forced (Dread in t13)
  • Ears Dread in t13
  • Wrist (Use True Ice as a filler in the meantime)
  • The rest is optional

Tomestone weapon will never be BiS, especially more so in 2.4 Dragoons case. BUT it is an amazing filler until you get your spear from Bahamut. Helps out heaps with Accuracy, too! This becomes alot more attractive if you can realistically get the tome and carbontwine from 11 and 12 respectively. HP is the only downside to dragoon (Sucky MDEF), as such, prioritizing left side pieces is more legit than rushing the t13 Ring.

  1. So without beating A8S how does this look?
    By putting acc on the 240 relic you could remove some Acc 5’s and replace them with crit 5’s.
    Another improvement would be on the belt as well.
    Are there anygood sets for doing a full dps relic 120 crit/115 det/ 5 sks?

  2. So, coming back to this, I’ve done some experimenting and the Gordian Spear BiS heavily outweighs the Brionac, the 87 det affecting your auto attacks, which come up as almost 20% of your damage alone, even without the crit multiplier (Which caps at around 26% at ~867 crit. Not a hard cap, but diminishing returns), I’d say the Gordian spear is the best BiS with the Thordan Halberd being a notable filler over brionac pre-Gordian Spear.

    Hope it helps, my best wishes to you guys o/!.

    1. In the discussion I put the SS swaps needed, HOWEVER, yes I was expecting these specific ‘590’ sets, so I may as well put one up.

      1. Personally, I feel this build is wrong, not only the Brionac is Inferior to the Trident in stat weighs, but relying on it for sks caps does not pay off stat wise, the acuraccy is way too high considering A4S front is 640, and sacrificing almost 100 det to get a bit more crit/meet sks cap does not pay off in the overall build, because the highcap of 2.39 still gives you an optimal performance.

        imho, this is what a real DRG BiS should look like: http://ffxiv.ariyala.com/QZFW

        Note: This page’s BiS, to compare: http://ffxiv.ariyala.com/RPCQ

        1. Aldric, upon reviewing the two links… The main difference is..

          Your BiS gives: +87 DET +31 SKS
          My BiS gives: +61 CRIT

          The loss of crit seems a little too staggering for me. DET isn’t too hot this patch. While your list does reduce accuracy to prevent a waste of stats, i personally do not know if it will even outweigh the listed set.

          Thankfully the difference is only TWO PIECES (one being the gordian spear), so it’s quite easy to experiment with. Thank you for the input!

          1. Given the current stat weighs, those stats still make for a weighted 9.9 for crit vs 15.317 for det and sks, so it IS noticeable. I don’t have my gordian spear yet, but as soon as I do, I will buy both sets and do some field testing.

          1. Hey, that’s pretty awesome! Thank you for that. I’m here should you like to discuss anything else with me. Thanks again :D.

  3. What would be BiS il120 gear as a combination of WoD and Poetics gear look like? Just curious. I’m getting back into the game after a 7 month hiatus. I have the WoD chest and head gear for my DRG. All of my accessories are from SCoB. I want to save my poetics for my weapon as I only have the Liberator right now and I never upgraded my Zenith o.O Thanks!

    1. ffxiv.ariyala.com – lock in the gear you want to keep from your current set, lower the max ilvl to 120, set up bis solver to ignore skill speed and include food buffs, and click solve.

  4. Dreadwyrm Spear is not the BIS. Longinus Zeta with full Crit & Dex come out to have 57 STR, 67 VIT, 53 CRIT, and 38 DET. With an auto attack at 57.22. Only thing Dreadwyrm Spear head is a slightly lover delay. Longinus Zeta has 2.96 delay.

    1. Probably because of some impractical thing called “stat weights”, while useful – it doesnt and CANNOT take into consideration actual combat practicality.

    2. Yeah like ffxiv guild said, ariyala puts a little over 1/10 weight on skill speed which causes a difference. To verify this, you can set the stat weight to 0 for skill speed on ariyala’so bis silver, and it will show the same set you see here.

      Sorry for spelling/capitalization. I’m on my phone.
