Dragon Torso Stone is a Tool in Dark Souls 3.

Dragon Torso Stone

Stone imbued with the power of the everlasting dragons, used in a secret rite by dragon worshippers.

Gain the torso of a dragon and a dragon's roar, a transformation that is irreversible until death.

From ancient times, the path of dragon worship was walked by warriors. It is said they envision Archdragon Peak in the depths of their meditation, and at times, they even hear the distant sound of the great bell at the peak.


Dragon Torso Stone Usage

  • Grants a torso of a dragon and a dragon's roar, a transformation that is irreversible until death. All armor must be removed before it can be used. This includes the head, chest, arm, and leg armor.
  • Reactivating the stone boosts attack damage for 5 seconds 
    • PVE = + 10%  AR
    • PVP = additional modifier = 1.125*damage 
  • It also causes a Force-like stagger effect akin to Warcry, capable of staggering some enemies. It inflicts high stamina damage and can be used to break guards on shields.

      Anyone else think this should be a covenant that spawns you in arch dragon peak if you go into dragon form like Aldrich Faithful but in dragon form. Sounds like some pretty good pvp

        How well would this pair with something like, let's say Gundyr's Halberd? Could a build be made at all around this pair?

          I enjoy using the Spook spell to quicken going down paths and ladders, 3 times spook was active in dragon form (it showed my feet glowing) all 3 times died/took fall damage. Wondering what other self affecting spells are impacted by this?

              Has anyone used this thing with a floyd's ring? It sounds like it can be devastating with the right light weapon.

                This thing is op in pvp. Fast cast animation and it drains all of your opponents stamina in 1 roar. Which means easy riposte on anyone using shields (even greatshields) and opponents being unable to attack (since they have no stamina).

                    A great item, and far faster than the Twinkling counterpart. Combine this with hypermode for devastating levels of damage.The wiki says it adds 10% AR, but in my test I've found that it actually adds more like 15% in computed damage. Combine this with red tearstone, morion blades, and even Power Within for compound damage that's truly awe-inspiring.People are far too eager to write something off as ineffective rather than be creative about how to use it. On its own, not terribly useful. Combine it with compounded multipliers, and it become quite a daunting boost.

                      I'm reasonably sure that using dragon stones doesn't count as wearing armor in terms of absorption, making dragon stones terrible. You take 25% extra damage for each piece of armor you're NOT wearing, so wearing no armor for the dragon stones means you take 100% extra damage (it's not multiplicative), basically like wearing the calamity ring. I'm pretty sure this is the case by comparing full dragon form to full master's attire, the weakest armor in the game. I took way more damage in dragon form. Needs proper testing.

                        Why?11 Aug 2016 10:39  

                        In DS1 being a dragon at least enhanced the damage of your fists, changing also the animation, in this chapter dragon form is useless. On top of that the shiny stones do look cool, but their activation takes too long and do to few damage to be viable both in PvE and PvP, the only good thing that you can do in dragon form is roar to break someone's guard and riposte while buffed, but having to at least wear steel protection ring and thunder stoneplate is too much of a trade-off.

                          It's fun at least03 Jun 2016 00:44  

                          It is at least fun, but it didn't go well for me to actually play the game as a dragon. Anyone else experience anything different?

                            In Dark Souls, the dragon form had feather-looking crap on it.In Dark Souls 2 it just looked like armour.In Dark Souls 3 you look a bit like a demon, I do think it could have looked better but I personally didn't like 1's form and 2 didn't look like a dragon at all.I am beginning to grow on this new form for sure.

                              1: it looks dumb and weak like with normal armor i look like a badass hero but with the dragon form i look like a hobo dragon deer.2: it's garbage because the form is literally bad in protection the only thing it does is giving you new powers.3: you take just a much damage as if you didn't wear anything combine that with prisoner's chain and calamity ring and ng+-whatever and its insta-kill for most enemies.4: the form doesn't even scale with your charaters body like my character in normal form look like a muscular badass but with dragon form you are thine as a starving dog5: even if you are thine in dragon form you cannot even put any armor on you it would be ok if yo couldn't put a helmet on but not being able til put armor on i BS a it's finest i mean c'mon fromsoft making a thine dragon that cannot put armor is worthless6: the only cool thing about this fom is your abilities if you're like me who just wanted to be a badass dragon and use dragon powers then forget these worthless stones you're better off without them
