There are many achivements I've made on and/or for my dragoon. The top 3 that stand out the most in my career as a dragoon as below:

3) 6/07: After a 6 month hiatus due to RL, getting an ethereal earring. Always been my penultimate goal on my dragoon, ever since i saw it as a still growing up dragoon way back when. He was a galka dragoon on a mage SJ and i asked him about his mp management, and he told me it wasnt a problem with his earring. Saw the stats on it and wowed like this -> \o.O/

2) 12/2005: Starting Remora's first all 6 DRG ODS. Coincidentally, this was when our call wyvern was patched from 2 hour ability to a 20 min JA. Mind you at that time, I checked online forums like once/year, (my regular outing into FFXI alla only began back in June 2007 lol) so this was inspired by more of a "what do do with my 8 stacks (and growing) of KS collecting dust in my mog house?" thing. Lightbulb went off, I grabbed 5 of my dragoon buddies with similar stacks of KS, went static, and the rest as we say, was history. The 6 of us went from rags to riches within the next 6 months. When they eventually ran out of seals, (and I was down to about 4 stacks and still growing) I branched out and started playing ODS with every single job combinations possible, pre TAU. Even sent /random /tell to drgs 72+, introduced myself and started recruiting them for future ODS events. Socialized with alot of dragoons back then lol. Very fond memories to this day :) and made it part of my Intro Sig link.

1) I am acknowledged as a Dragoon main in my endgame LS. This was despite the culture of anti drg attitude that was very prevalent among the past officers and members (most of them who i am happy to say quit, got banned, or migrated) and despite the fact that I had other jobs at 75. I wasnt playing back around the pre penta spam days, and spirit link had just come out as a new ability when I first started playing, so I faced alot of uphill battle. I led many of my xp parties, I survived the bias without the bitterness, gathered respect from others as a competent player and a team player, and never gave up making my dragoon as best as it can be. There are other members with 75 drg within my LS, but I am the only active dragoon in my LS to this day. I do participate on other jobs as tactically advisable, but its my drgoon that reaps the rewards. These days, I get more playing time on my drg, for which I'm very happy. After all, you can have more then 1 75, but you only have one main, and for me it has always been my dragoon, since day 1.

Thanks for this thread guys, it was exactly what I needed. I had only gotten to play twice after the update (RL can be a b...) when my account got hacked. Amongst other things I lost both my mezraq and hydra mail which now rarely sell on the AH. I was actually thinking of quitting. I started reading this thread and I remembered how proud I was when I finally beat maat, got my first piece of relic. Thanks for the inspiration and the motivation to keep going. /salute

Mine isn't as impressive as others, but I'll give it a shot.

2.2 Mil gil farmed in 2-1/2 months on my Drg, while going through 6 levels in doing so. Makes me happy to have a job so good at farming, though I'm farming for Drg, lol. I died 7-8 times to NM's, but it helps stabalize the constant XP I'm getting while farming, lol.

Also this one is ongoing everytime I help someone do a quest/mission:

I have(in the past 2 months) turned about 15 or so ppl (20 or so since I've got Drg) on the Bismarck Server on to Drg, after they have seen what a good Drg can do. And made them worship at the alter of Drg power/versatility, and even though I like hearing how much they are impressed with and want(ed) to get Drg, some ppl can/have went on for well over half an hour about how much they are impressed with my Drg. But I just give em a "^^" whenever they start going on too long about it, and Thank them for their kind words.

But while I haven't achieved what some of these ppl have, I have still managed to turn alot of heads, and did alot for anyones doubts about Drg on Bismarck. ^^ So I'm doing my part for other Drg's^^

not really and achievement.
I quit 12 days ago due to the CC i used expired. Its starting to get to me... pokemon can only be fun for so much time... i miss my Gizmo.
But for the "achievement", i have an interview today. . . I probably won't get the job (i really don't have any skill in advertisement -.-) . . . but if for some reason the start are lined right, and i do get the job, i can come back to ffxi >.>


i need my drug, i have not slept right in 12 days . . . I NEED IT!


But grats to you all who have done some actual achievements with DRG.

An epic achievement that we all could partake in is get everyone Sage title.
GO GO GO rate ups!

Finished working on my Flame Gorget finally.

Shadow gorget + Flame gorget = Win 4 me

I recently got my brutal earring from limbus and i am now working on my first piece of Homam gear, the Corazza. ( I know that I should go for boots first, but the waiting list is huge. The body only has 2 other people besides me.)

Hey Redd, good to see more sea/limbus Dragoon in Remora. Gratz on the Gorget and Earring, and good luck on the corazza. I ran into so much dilemma and bad luck when it comes to Homam drops that I decided not to priortize body and just grab the other pieces as I get them. Currently 3/5 now, with hand left.

Regarding your flame gorget, I just posted something regarding it, since I was working on the same thing myself. Let me know what you think.

I will definately let you know how things go with flame gorget. Just got it lastnight and didn't really get to test it out on my Drg. I went up to sky as my Whm/nin and help farm some diorite with a friend's Sky linkshell. Didn't really notice to much considering I was trying to do some skill ups with a prudence rod.

Unfortunatley, I don't get to go as Drg to many events in Exodus... ; ; We have a member that they let go as Drg to a lot of events, Sutien. I am forced to go as Whm.

Lol, they said once I get 3/5 Homam, they'll let me start going Drg.

Oh, I forgot to add that I also got my first Drg Af +1 upgrade set. Now I need to farm up enough gil for the 28 coins (already have 2). Do you have any suggestions as for which piece to upgrade? I am torn between hands and legs. The +acc and +15% Wyvern Hp is nice for HB, but the gaunts have +5 str and dex.
Currently use Relic for hands now for melee.

What do you think?

It took a long time before My ls finally allowed me to come as drgoon to endgame events. Which was fine, cuz it took that long to build up my ******* of gears. I guess in a sense, that was an achivement in itself =)

I remember meriting with Sutien, a LS member, and another drg in Nyzule with a Cor and rdm in pt. Nice pt, never seen so many homam pieces in a pick up burn pt heh. 2 bodies, & total of 11 homam pieces if I recall correctly.

As for AF+1, it depends on what your present gears are and what you like to do on your dragoon, but based strictly on the gear themselves, I'd go for hand then legs. Hand Af+1 i'd say is even better then Hand Relic+1 post patch. Legs would then be my next choice post patch. I'm 4/5 atm on AF+1, but my choices were different since back then, acc = king. I went Legs, hands, head, body. I got the cobalt, just need the rivet for feet, which atm not a very big priority, more for the lolpurple look.

Nice job on Love torque! I think that there is one person ahead of me for the torque in my shell.

As for Af +1, I am really leaning toward hands first. Accuracy really shouldn't too much of a problem for me now(polearm capped). My gear is above average I would say. Not the best and definately not the worst.

Tp gear: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/profile.xml?177707

Ws gear: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/profile.xml?104613


What do you think?

Hit 70 the other night and then went to Dynamis Jeuno and got my second piece of AF2! I now have more AF2 on DRG than I do on THF... how sad is that?

Hopefully Nyzul Isle assaults will go well this weekend and I can show off some Askar once I level a bit more :)

Managed to get an Orichalcum ring for 250k off the AH ^^

That means if I can buy a Fire Ore for 70-80k I can have a friend sign me a Flame Ring saving me 100k off the Flame Ring AH Cost ^^

Oh I also Tanked Grand Duke Batym on Brd/Nin haha not really a Drg achievement But it was a noodles achievement and as noodles is a drg.. it could be :P (and I was using all my drg DD gear except for earrings and feet hehe)

Edit: [Twig] Flame Ring get. ftw. I think the only other 2 pieces of AH gear I want/need are a Chepo Ruby ring (as a placeholder untill Rajas) and a Minuet Earring for my Str setup... Maybe when I'm rich and famous I'll replace it with a Triumph Earring and replace Pallas with Alkys but meh that's a long way off :P

hmmm I feel kind of sad because I havnt made any big DRG achievements recently. I'm close to a few. I have done a few big events recently (completing ToAU, defeating big ol HNMs or NMs or ENMs solo, etc.) as DRG but nothing specificly for DRG, like when I completed 5/5 AF2 or capped some DRG specific merrit.

hmmm now I'm motivated to go and do something specific to DRG ^^
