Evaluation: I've always liked dragoons (and was disappointed

to find no Jump materia in FF7), and FFT's lancers

(a mistranslation; they were dragoons in the Japanese

version) are just as cool. They have a great range

with their jump attack, which never misses and puts

the Dragoon temporarily out of danger. They also have

Dragon Spirit, which casts Reraise when you get hit.

I'm sure you can see the value in that. Dragoons are

what Knights should have been. I recommend them very

highly. The only downside is that they become pretty

useless later in the game.
