Gestures in Dark Souls 3 will be similar to other Souls games and allow the player to express emotion or direction to other players. Gesturing to the Fire Keeper makes her react to you.

There are a total of 33 gestures in Dark Souls 3. Upon collecting them all, you'll get an achievement/trophy.

 Trivia

  • The Quiet Resolve gesture was originally from the Dark Souls 1 trailer. The character who uses the gesture in the trailer is wearing the Elite Knight Set, the same set worn by Anri, the character who teaches you the gesture in Dark Souls III. 
  • There are several gestures that are performed by NPC's that can not be obtained by the player, most notably the majority of sitting and standing idle poses, the gestures the Firekeeper does in response to gestures done near her, and the standing Toast gesture performed by Amnesiac Lapp.

          yesterday i got invaded by a guy who was a total noob. he buffed his sword, and didn't even wait until i buffed my mace, i got hit, but dealt like 0 damage. then i killed him with 4 R1s and pointed down. Later he invaded again and was super salty, he only fought on stairways when he was in advantage, rolled after every attack, tried to bait me into ambushes (didn't work) and constantly chugged. at the end i got annoyed he kept chasing me with armor of thorns but didn't dare to do a real battle, so i just went into deacons fight.

            You can infact get every gesture, its just about timing and how often you go back to firelink. For instance, getting Darkmoon loyalty and Proper Bow in one play through is what most people have problems with, however, if you beat Yellowfinger twice, once in the upper swamp and lower swamp, it should trigger Siris to appear in Firelink, so you can keep Abyss Watchers alive to summon Yellowfinger once you join Rosaria you can get Darkmoon Loyalty gesture from her there. once thats done, go back Cathedral of the Deep and offer the pale tongue to Rosaria. And there you have it. Proper Bow and Darkmoon Loyalty in one playthrough.

              I think it's retarded that you absolutely need to go through NG+ to get every gesture on one character. NG+ isn't even good anyway...

                I just found out that this was a trophy at the end of my third and last playthrough where I was going to comfortably get the last trophies in a completed world. I am soooooooooo *****ing pissed right now, if you think I am going to start another playthrough (a fourth one) just to get a few gestures you can suck my*****FromSoftware. Screw Platinums who needs them right. After well over 250 plus hours as far as in concerned I did platinum the game!!!
