Job Ability

  • Adds your wyvern's strength to your own.
  • Obtained: Dragoon Level 1
  • Recast Time: 1:00:00
  • Duration: 1:00


  • The Dragoon must have the Wyvern out in order to use Spirit Surge.
  • The Dragoon's Wyvern is absorbed and automatically "dismissed" upon use of Spirit Surge. It cannot be resummoned until the Spirit Surge effect wears off.
  • While this ability is in effect, Jump, High Jump, and Super Jump gain these additional effects:
    • Jump temporarily weakens an enemy’s defense.
    • High Jump causes an enemy’s TP to be reduced by a percentage proportionate to the amount of damage inflicted.
    • Super Jump causes the closest party member behind the Dragoon (from the point of view of the monster) to have his or her enmity reduced by half.
  • The recast time for the Jump, High Jump, and Super Jump job abilities will be immediately reset upon use of Spirit Surge.
  • Upon use, the Dragoon's maximum HP is increased by roughly 15%. Following that, the Dragoon's current HP is healed by an amount equivalent to the Wyvern's current HP.
  • The Wyvern's current TP is also added to the Dragoon's. With proper timing, a self-Skillchain may be performed.
  • The Dragoon gains a large STR boost, equal to: floor((level / 5) + 1).
  • The Dragoon gains a large accuracy boost (including jumps).
  • This was thought to be 100% but has since been disproved. See discussion
  • The Dragoon gains 25% job ability haste.
  • The Wyvern's per-hit damage is added onto the Dragoon's individual attacks.Exclamation
