Twinkling Dragon Head Stone

Twinkling Dragon Head Stone dks3

Stone imbued with the power of the everlasting dragons, the second of its kind, offered to a towering dragon.

Gain the head of a dragon and emit breath alongside an archdragon mirage. The transformation is irreversible until death.

The illusion achieved was the first case of a human imitating the form of an ancient dragon, and it revealed the smallness of human existence. The road to the old dragons is long and arduous, and only one can complete the journey.


Twinkling Dragon Head Stone Usage

  • You must remove your head equipment to be able to use the item
  • Your character's head will turn into a dragon head
  • Using the item after acquiring the dragon head will summon a giant dragon head, which will breathe a constant flow of fire
  • Fire breathing spends stamina
  • Using the Dragon Head on its own (i.e. without the Body) increases Magic and Dark absorption by 4, increases Fire absorption by 9, and reduces lightning absorption by 4. It also increases all Resistances by 15. This is the same for both the Basic and Twinkiling version of the Dragon Head Stone.



Twinkling Dragon Head Stone Location

  • Speaking with Blacksmith Andre after acquiring the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone and then traveling to the Abyss Watchers bonfire will cause you to fight Hawkwood who will give you this item if you win. CAUTION: He will take your stone if you lose, though you can regain it by defeating him. Putting your stones in storage does prevent him from taking them however.



  • Deals fire damage
  • Very short range (visual is longer than real hitbox)
  • Around 3 secs windup

        So in pvp, if you want to have fun with this, go into a narrow hallway and spam this thing, especially in pve, in pvp, if they dont havs poise, stunlock him to death with this in a narrow hallway, sure its a gimmjck but games are about fun, and when something looks like midir's decapitated head burning a narrow hallway, why not?

          All the work needed to get this...and like others have said before, it's garbage. It only works against enemies that always flinch or flail from fire (so mostly early game enemies) and that's assuming they're standing up so that the fire can actually hit. Everyone else just laughs at your lack of range and incredibly slow startup. For such a suicidal thing even the damage output is sad. What a goddamn shame. If i could ask FROM Software I'd say 'Do you hate your own work or what were you thinking with these dragon stones?'

            I killed Hawkwood in the beginning of the game. Now that I obtained the twinkling torso stone, I exhausted all dialogue with Andre and he spoke nothing of it. I went to the Abyss Watchers Bonfire and still no luck. I believe killing Hawkwood ruins your ability to get the Twinkling head stone.

              Here what I had done to get it.

              1. Spoke to hawkwood at very end of game.
              2. Got farron ring and reloaded so he would disappear.
              3. Got twinking torso stone.
              4. Went to abyss watcher bonfire and he was there.

              never spoke to blacksmith outside of getting his gesture at very beginning of game.

                  You know if you just use the dragon head, take armor that covers the rest of your skin and you get some pretty neat looking dragon warrior/scholar fashion
                  At least, I don't think the dragon head looks bad, but that's me \o/

                    It's not a blessing. It's a curse. Comrade had to fight comrade. A Friend had to murder a friend. I cannot imagine that a true dragon would have found much happiness. Maybe thats why they did continue to pray even as dragons until they turned into stones themselves. For forgiveness that never came.

                      If ur a completionist, yeah, go for it. Otherwise - useless crap. Head = WAY to long windup and no damage/poise damage. Same goes for the Torso(Damage okay, but widup bejond stupid. Super useless bull*****crap for both PvP and PvP. PLUS you look like*****. Dragon form in DS 1 was WAY better and still not OP. ***** you From!

                        Who in the hell designed this thing? Why would anyone think that players would want to play as a scrawny lizard chicken? Take a page out of Guilty Gear and give us a proper goddamn Dragon Install. Also make it not suck kthx.

                              When i beat hawkwood a box of dialogue poped up saying the dragon stone belongs to the champion? I think it's because i summoned hawkwood at the great belfry and walked up to the dragon torso location he did path of the dragon and then returned home.

                                Depressingly bad transformation. Use only if you enjoy being a fire-breathing origami chicken.

                                It's even more embarrassing now that we have Bloodborne, which added two really cool transformations that actually did stuff.

                                    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.
