I really want to see a Dragoon/Lancer archetype

We’ve never REALLY seen the archetype before.
A few classes have slightly touched on it, but not really.

Jabbing Lance Amazon KINDA touched on it.
Falling Sword Crusader KINDA touched on it.
But not really.

Not really sure what you’re talking about. Can you explain what a “dragoon” would be?

Is this what you are talking about? Dragoons originally were a class of mounted infantry, who used horses for mobility, but dismounted to fight on foot. I really have no idea what you are saying.

I think you are talking about some FF class, but it doesn’t fit well in Diablo lore, as Sanctuary have no true dragons.

But I’d like lancer class, something like a javazon.

A heavily armored Lancer.
Historically the iconic ability being… Falling Sword, but with a Lance.
I imagine the class revolving around Cold/Thunder/Physical attacks.

Dragons KINDA exist in Diablo Lore. But yeah you’re right.
Tethamat for example, and a few lower demons are dragon-esque, but not quite dragons.

Leap attack Barbarians from D2 are probably the closest thing to a Dragoon you can get.

The D3 Barbarian can do something similar, but I have never tried it out.

Leaps.(Falling Sword)
Drakes.(Tanky pets, with a on-use CD)
Glacial attacks.(Avalanche)
Thunder attacks.(Think Javazon)

Modernized “Jab”- have it be a 1,2,3,4 hit combo that goes on a short CD once u finish the combo.
So like…Poke, Frontal slash, slash down from up above, spin slash as the finisher.
(Kinda like youre playing Dynasty Warriors)

A robotic spider saying “I have returned” and firing plasma balls at its enemies. Cool idea. :smiley:
Maybe a dead HC char could resurrect as a dragoon?
