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.

- 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.
