      One of my favorite tactics is to nail an enemy with a riposte or backstab, then time the twinkling torso slam to hit them just as their hitbox reactivates. it's a nice little wakeup call for some more quick damage.

      All in all, the torso and twinkling torso are the stones to use. Since DS1 the head stones have been all but useless. Range is too short, hits are too slow and weak. I always felt the original intent was that the fire breath was for breaking guards by pummeling turtles into recoiling, with a bit of chip damage as a bonus. For that the original high stamina cost (and high stamina inflict against shields) with range and rapid hits was perfect. It was well balanced because users were always best served in laying short bursts to maintain their own stamina.

        I always imagined a dragon transformation to be mighty and amazing... not some skinny dragon who doesnt have enough to eat.

          So, I pretty much used a black separation crystal on Hawkwood, and I have no idea where to find him again. I'm fairly certain that he's no longer going to show up in my world again. :[ Is there anything that can be done, or am I screwed to fight my way up the path alone.

            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.

              Maybe if this thing has some poise and some wings even little stubby wings I'll probably use it more often but as it is it's ugly and useless

                    Absorptions15 May 2016 16:11  

                    The full dragonform does have some defenses. It has magic/dark absorb of 16.48, fire absorb of 32.66, lightning absorb of -15.44 (yes negative), and resistance to poison/frost/curse/bleed of 60. It has no physical damage absorption. I tried to add it to the entry myself, but it doesn't appear to have worked.

                      Just run as fast as you can. They won't follow you up the hill. Be careful unless htey box you in and then you die.

                        That aint dragon at all! That is some kind of starved deer who have AIDS. In DS2 dragonform was cool and i don't need to remove armor for henshin. In DS3 is useless and ugly.

                            max dmg of 536 @ 99faith/int. does not count as spell, hence: not boosted by sorc/miracle/pyro rings. can still be cast under vow of silence spell effect. boosted by flynn's ring (max 624 dmg). not boosted by Lloyd's Sword/Leo/Hornet or Clutch rings. boosted by deep protection (562). not buffed by warcry weapon art. there are some more things that could boost it, like red tearstone and stuff like that, but's very underwhelming, especially since it costs a crapload of stamina and seems quite slow to cast. and the horrible defense and aesthetics of it make it even less useable
