Normal Play Analysis
There's nothing particularly vital about the Dragoon. It's a fun class to use but it really has only one gimmick. Jump and more Jump. Lance can be useful to keep up MP. Use it like a less defensive Knight and you're good.
Low Level Play Analysis
Jump does double damage, I didn't take advantage of it much, but if you want you can do a lot more damage with Jump and a strong spear faster then you can with other weapons.
