Twinkling Dragon Head Stone is a Tool in Dark Souls 3.

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

  • Speak with Blacksmith Andre after acquiring the Twinkling Dragon Torso Stone and he will give you Hawkwood's Swordgrass. Be sure to have exhausted all of Hawkwood's dialouge, as he will not leave the Shrine otherwise, causing Andre not to give you anything. After that,  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.

      Remember the gatling gun in bloodborne? This is like that weapon, but with half the damage and only 1 damage tick per 4 proyectiles.

      Like, cmon. Wtf was your excuse, fromsoft? You had everything you ever needed to make the dragon stones useful but completely dropped the ball on everyone.

        Please tell me if i am missing something. This is my 3rd playthrough of DS3 and i still have no idea. All of these various dragon stones..torso, head, etc....it's all just gimmicky nonsense, right? I can't even sell them, and other than the silly transformation...they don't really serve a purpose...correct? Or have i been missing something this whole time?

            If you kill the wyvern normally it seems to also give you the twinkling Dragon head stone. Although that may just have been because I was in new game +

              slow windup, **** range, weak damage (even with stats pumped) and only actually gives a 'hit' about once every second and a half. Only remote benefit is it uses very little stamina so you can jet-set for ages. Still. reduce the windup by about a second, triple the range, double the hits per second, and use ds-1's stamina model (though maybe not so extreme in the drain escalation). Then it would be reasonably balanced methinks.

                the cast time is so long that I've yet to find any enemy that won't kill you before it actually goes off.

                    You can hate ds2 all you like, but there s no denying that the dragonoid concept in ds3 is the worst of the saga. Now i don t regret the lack of dragon covenant, just imagine farming 30 dragon scales for this crap.

                      This is mainly for completionist players. No added benefits in comparison to the other Dragon Head Stone. From Software could of easily given this a fireball attack for it's item, or shortened the windup time, or added additional defense compared to the first one. No real good benefits, but just a nice little, "Hey, look what I have spent effort to acquire!". Could be more worth it maybe next DS game.

                        Utterly useless in serious fights which is shortly before you hit Arch anyways. Goofing with it and in PVP (new/bad players) is it's only use. Otherwise I'll rip you apart durinh wind up or just Crystal S.S your face. Why yours? Because I take DkS to seriously to keep using D.H.S in actual fights that I want to survive. DS2 Drake Armor did this Cosplay better.

                          Cast Affinity and then put this up, i believe the dragon mirage masks the orbs, i havnt gotten around to testing this because i dont have the intelligence for affinity, so if anyone knows how this works, please reply and tell me

                            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!

                                                  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.

                                                        So I killed him really early in the game just for the hell of it I didn't think he would actually disappear lmao is there any other way to get the twinkling dragon head stone?

                                                          Practically all the dragon stones need more images. What do the transformations actually look like? The fire breathing? What is the difference between using the normal head stone and the twinkling one?More elaboration is required.

                                                            A lot of you wondered (myself included) why you were not given the Hawkwards Swordglass when you spoke to the smith, even though you had the twinkling torso. Here is the reason: you weren't far enough along in Hawkwoods quest to do so. You have to get him to leave the shrine in the first place. They way you do that is to make sure that the Abyss Watchers, Curse-Rotted Greatwood, Deacons of the Deep and the Crystal Sage have been defeated. Then go exhaust Hawkwoods dialogue, go TP to another bornfire, TP back, exhaust his dialogue... repeat this untill he suddenly has disappeared from firelink shrine. Now you can go talk to the smith, and he will greet you with a new message.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

I think you have to do this in order to get the swordgrass (not quite sure).In terms of power I think it's very weak. Got 7int/50Fth and do aroung 150dmg/s to an undead villager (you know those guys sitting around and praying) in NG+ after around 3sec windup. Range is also really short, around a swordstrike, maybe a bit more. Staggers enemies just once/sec and don't knock them back, so if you use it you are easy prey. Just use it for the visual atm...

He gave me a heavy stone, a Farron ring and I basically just kept spamming him until he repeated the same lines over and over. Then I quit the game, loaded it up again and talked to Andre. That did triggered it for me, and Hawkwood was at the Abyss Watchers bonfire.
