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.

      What was from really thinking of while they were sculpting this model BRUH.there were a whole lot of dragon bros in ds2 dying to see how it looked like in 3 and then here you go (dragon bro GOATY edition) ds series had masterpieces of character design and concepts but i dunnow what gave them the idea of THIS!!! even I with my literal experience in sculpting and character design could have made it better so our dragon bros were a bit happier about how they look like(and we even ignore our armor for this if only they just improved ds2's armor and just added it here BIG BRUH)

        The guy fighting the NPC enemy in the walkthrough video seriously ticks me off; he has about 5 different chances to win the battle except he REFUSES to press his advantage! It’s only a difficult fight for him because he keeps backing off after staggering his enemy and allowing him to heal! Just—advance! Hit. The guy. With. Your sword!!

            I have the dragon head stone which you get from beating the boss and I have the twinkling Dragon torso stone which you get from emoting at the alter but SOMEHOW I don't have the actual Dragon torso stone and I can't get it and without all three I can't get the twinkling Dragon head stone

              It is not at all by the lift by the dungeon bonfire. That lift takes you to the giant pit with rats. It's actually at the END of the dungeon. Accuracy matters.

                Not sure if anyone else has posted this but worth noting is the roar buff also increases the crit modifier. That means a guard break plus hornet riposte is instant death with any weapon

                  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.
