Piety = dragoon stat?

I've been hearing on the Squenix boards that Dragoons/Lancers actually utilize the Piety stat, is that still a thing? because all the messages on this board say piety is just for increased MP.

piety is useless for Dragoon.

Strength for damage and more damage reduced on parries
Dex for more parry chance
Vitility for more life

That pretty much sums up what is important to the dragoon.

It was a secondary stat for DRG in 1.0.
Considering how high it is in ARR, it's hard to believe it doesn't still do something for them.

The above is not in all caps.

From the looks of the topic PIE was a secondary damage modifier in 1.xx. However, you would still focus on STR as that provided better results. If this carries over to 2.0 you would still focus on STR over PIE.

Piety increases autoattack damage in 1.0, it is no longer needed as Lancer/Dragoon.

As others have said, in 1.xx it was a factor. In this game it is not. All stats have the same effects for all the classes. Piety does not increase the damage that dragoons do. My best advice is to just look at ARR as pretty much an entirely new game and let go of what things were like in 1.xx.

That's a year and a half old topic.

Yeah PIE was arguably the best stat for DRG in 1.0 In ARR strength is the only thing you need for more dps for any of the melee jobs.

Back in 1.0 most dragoons went Piety/Dex, cause strenght only increased your attack to the point you won't notice it. In ARR piety only increases your max MP. It's basicly the vitality for magic users.
