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.

      Perfect for guard breaking. That roar breaks shields easily (due to crappy stability on most shields) and the damage buff is serious business with a dagger riposte

          I dont think people understand why dragonform looks the way it does, archdragon peak is crumbling and its all destroyed, the archdragons are gone and there is no dragon to enhance the power of these stones, that said the roar is still really good in pvp and i like the look, it looks like its being eaten away by the abyss and its the first in the series that isnt an armor set with a special skin on it, and is also the only one with actual physics

              Do you still face the defense (different from absorption) penalty for not wearing armor with this activated?

                The dragon form is meant to be the porsche to the usual armor-clad tank. The best defense is not getting hit. timely rolling and a sturdy shield are the name of the game. The benefit is less dedication to vitality, elemental resists, quick-rolls, and a turtle-smasher roar with enhanced damage that also translates into the inevitable riposte. Timed right it will deflect arrows and spells, but it is trickier than parrying. It also combo's well with the twinkling torso. Roar, riposte, groundslam wake-up call. (though the slam misses in pvp because players can interrupt the get-up animation) The build works very well with the demon scar and a pyromancy build. you need almost no strength or dex. The sword, pyromancies, and twinkling torso all scale to int/faith as well. Load up with swamp, witch, and fire clutch rings, and a shield of choice, and you become deadly to just about everything. (save monsters with high fire resist. but keep a spare dex weapon handy and no worries on that front either)

                  It would be nice if they followed the original dragon design of DS1 but give it the updates this design has...namely not sucking Estus through the neck.

                  The dragon from in DS1 at least LOOKED like a dragon where this one...the starving bastard of a one night stand between the Capra Demon and a Lordan hollow.

                    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?
