Dragoon focuses on keeping the party alive by reducing the received damage as much as it can. This class can equip Heavy Armor and Shields, which greatly enhance physical defense, and also has multiple damage mitigation skills to keep the other members alive. Line Guard gives protection toward physical-based attacks, Mana Guard gives protection toward element-based attacks, and Healing Guard heals own health when taking damage. Dragon Roar is a buff that increases the chance that enemy attacks will target a specific party member, Decoy Bunker summons Bunkers which serve as decoys with a high chance to be each enemies’ primary target for attacks, and Defense Form increases the party's defense against physical attacks, although bunkers have to be out of the field to use it. But this class is not all about defense. One particularly useful skill is Gunmount, which deals damage to an enemy and replicates the Guard Skill used in the previous turn at no additional cost. Lastly, Barrage Wall is a skill that damages all enemies and reduces their physical attack with a debuff.

Dragoon can pretty much fit into any team, and it’s recommended to place Dragoon in the front row so it is more likely to be targeted by enemy attacks. If you intend to use Bunkers, Bunkers are considered summons which are limited by 3 slots, so it's discouraged to bring another class which can also summon like Rover or Necromancer. Although this class is built to protect your team, unfortunately it can't always do the job. If there are multiple enemies with various physical and element-based attacks, the user must choose between Line Guard and Mana Guard, and let your party members deal with other types.

For early build, Gunmount may be the best skills to be used because it increases defense while also deals damage. However, Dragoon needs to level up a little bit until it can unlock Gunmount, so Decoy Bunker can be used as temporary shield. One point to Decoy Bunker, two points for each Line Guard, Mana Guard, and Healing Guard, and then build Gunmount to the max. Afterward the skill points can be spread into Decoy Bunker, Dragon Roar, or upgrading Line Guard and Mana Guard.

My build advice to get the most benefit with the least skills points spent:
Start Line Guard / Mana Guard (1) and Bunker level 1 (if no Necromancer).
Then Line Guard / Mana Guard (2) and Gunmount (1).
Optionally Dragon Roar(1)
Then Bunker to 4 (skip this if have a Necromancer)
Then Line Guard / Mana Guard (4)

Afterward either Level Bunker, Line / Mana Guard, Dragon Roar, or Gunmount (no higher than 4), or Union/Racial/Gathering skills depending on what your party needs most. Try to be mindful of having a sufficient TP pool before leveling skills to 5 or beyond.

When using Rovers (1 or 2 pets) and Dragoons (1 or 2 bunkers) in the same party, be aware that the Bunkers will draw Row-attacks and Splash attacks to the summon row which typically causes pets to take more damage than usual. Rover pets are very costly to replace, so it may be wise to skip bunkers for the sake of avoiding fatal damage to the pet(s).
