FFXIV: HW – 3.0 Advanced Dragoon Rotation Guide & Tips

That would work in an ideal situation when you can keep attacking the boss for all that time, but what about situations when you can’t? How should I adapt to changing fight circumstances? What are the priorities? You said to use cooldowns right as they are available, but which cooldowns were you talking about? Everything except life surge (which has to be combined with 4th or a full thrust) and geirskogul? Also, could you say more about skipping combos or redirect me to some guide? I tried asking uncle Google but he’s not been helpful.

I’m new to these types of games, and im a dragoon. The one thing im unsure about is how i should position my hands on my mouse/keyboard. Currently, i often end up with both hands on my keyboard with my left hand on wasd and on 1-5, with my right hand on 6-0. This however makes it impossible to use my mouse. Im not sure if i am supposed to be using my mouse during combat, but at the same time, i find it difficult to use my skills with one hand on the keyboard and one on the mouse. Firstly, i often fat-finger the wrong hotkeys on 6-0. Secondly, pressing those hotkeys requires me to lift my left hand off of wasd, making it impossible to move around.

You’re going to have to get used to using ALT/CTRL for keybinds if you do not have an MMO Mouse, as well as using q,e,t,c,v etc. That’s the only way to use all of the buttons required. You should never keybind more than 1-5. I can only reach 1-4 as I have smaller hands.. 6 and onwards are too hard for anyone to reach, unless you literally have giant hands.

i scrapped the usage of the alt/ctrl cause of a self perceived lack of coordination. the method i used was to keybind 4 of the hotbars into the shape of the keyboard and map it to the qwerty layout with 1 through = on top. in that setup i bound the skills into groups based on the part of the rotation i was at to allow for “free flowing” utilization. everything is available with a single key stroke. im probably the only one in my fc that does this, but i find it to be the most efficient setup for myself.

Thanks for this Dervy. Been away from the game for 7 months and just came back and used this video last night to re-train my dragoon. I really appreciate your explaining how to maximize your GK + B4B usage. It was easy to manage once I got the hang of it.

Whats the minimum attributes that I need to successfully pull off his rotation? My SS is 697 and on the opener i cannot seem to get the last tier 4 before the BoD drops. Now with 3.2 I’m not for sure if the SS requirement has changed from the previous 590.

I’m currently at ilvl 199 and I cant seem to go above 1.3k 3min parse, is it because I’m too slow or I’m just bad. I’m using your opener btw and my ping is roughly 280ms. Reason I ask is because people keep bothering me how it should be higher.
