The Dragonkin is a magick-based special job capable of dealing high elemental damage, as well buffing the party and enabling monster allies. Unique to the Dragonkin is the ability to boost the performance of other dragon units in the party, as well taming dragon-type enemies. It has the highest HP, MP, and Magick growth among all jobs, as well as an excellent attack stat that surpasses even that of the Sword Saint's. Reis is the only playable Dragonkin (should the player recruit her).
To maximize the Dragonkin's damage output from its Dragon abilities, it is recommended to boost magickal attack as much as possible. The Black Mage's Arcane Strength support ability increases attack by 33%. The Tynar Rouge is the best accessory for it, as not only it grants bonuses to both physical and magickal attack, but also bestows various passive effects, including boosting Holy damage, which further enables the Dragonkin's strongest ability: Holy Breath (which hits randomly but can kill an enemy in one shot). Given its high physical and magickal prowess, the Dragonkin can also make excellent use of of Geomancy, as its damage is calculated on both physical and magickal attack; Iaido is also a powerful alternative.
The Dragonkin can also be used as a physical damage dealer, since it has access to innate Dual Wield; the player can equip the Monk's Barehanded to further boost its unarmed damage, or the Knight's Equip Swords. Much like other jobs, the Dragonkin can become virtually unkillable with the Shirahadori reaction ability from Samurai, although this won't protect it from magickal attacks.
The Dragonkin's powerful abilities and impressive stat growth come at a price: it can equip only female-exclusive equipment. It also has low mobility, which can be augmented by equipping it with movement abilities such as its own Move +1, Thief's Move +2, or even Teleport.
