Dragon 1 (FFXI).png

Dragons are a family of enemies in Final Fantasy XI. The differences between dragons, wyverns and wyrms are often confused by adventurers young and old. Typically slightly larger than most wild wyverns, but smaller than wyrms, dragons are currently only known to naturally inhabit three areas of Vana'diel—one in the Middle Lands and two in the Near East—with those located in the Near East being of the more dangerous Dahak subspecies. Unlike their wyvern and wyrm cousins, dragons have a tendency to behave like members of the lizard family, such as detecting by sound, and use area attacks that neither wyverns nor wyrms use.

Valuable Dragon Scales, Dragon Hearts and Dragon Meat can be obtained from the defeated animal. The scales can be used in armor, while the dragon's blood can be extracted from the heart and used in a number of synthesis recipes. The meat can be used for a variety of dishes.
