      Had some asshole chug an estus in an FC while the host sat there and watched. He then used the welcome gesture after chugging 3 eatus flasks. Makes me want to reach my hand through the screen and backhand the piece of*****.

        I bet some DS2 gestures didn't make it because "not proper for children" in the USA. Same goes for the names. What they forgot was to censor other languages than english if they really mean it. I can insult who I want in my language. No "*" whatsoever...

          Wait a minute, that HomoBoi gesture everybody does for Fight Club is actually called "Duel Bow" ? I'm sorry, I just see everyone doing it as of late, and all I can imagine is Gwyndolin in his happy-bear-face panties practicing that in front of a mirror so he's ready for when Daddy finally lets him go out to one of the high school dances, so I'm just sitting there cringing every time I see somebody do it... Like there's the edgelords doing Legion Etiquette, and I just wave at them cause they're so cute, but whenever I see duel bow I don't even want to respond, I just want leave...

            It pisses me off that I have to abandon Sirris's quest line to get it, but overall this is a pretty easy achievement if you're going for it. Just know what to look for.

              there only f***ing gestures people ds3 is still amazing some people are acting like the gestures are the whole game and that because some are missing or not as good as ds2 its not the same lmao the game is still amazing.

                I miss some gestures from DS2 and BB..... 90% of those im DS sucks ballz deep, and i really mean it...

                If DS2 had something better than 3rd DS game - it was definitly the gestures ;(

                  Silent Ally gesture is a homage to The Empire Strikes Back...

                  Darth Vader bows down to the Emperor exactly like this:

                    I was really hoping for the beg for life gesture or something simlilar. I had fun with that gesture in bloodborne. now that I think about it, I wish that there were any gestures from the previous installments. I dont care about any of these

                      Doing a gesture run right now, after getting sirris' darkmoon gesture [and fulfilling the earlier invasion requirements] i joined rosaria went to farron keep for heysel's. i realized you can use the black separation before the abyss watchers to send back heysel [or whomever you've summoned first] and then get gotthard's gesutre, black separation crystal again, and then get londor pale shade's gesture. you can't see the summon signs for either of the other two if one is summoned, which is a nice little lore touch, but if you send one phantom back the other two signs will appear. though once you use the crystal you can't re-summon a character you sent back without using a bonfire. i was able to get all three gestures really quick this way then rest at a bonfire and summon the yellowfinger again to just romp around the level in "shared camaraderie."

                          For those who want to get the duel bow gesture, you can also summon the Londor pale shade for the pontiff sullyvan boss fight, her summon sign is at a statue near the entrance of the fight, on the right.
