      The idiots at from missed such a good opportunity to make this balanced and cool. Its the torso stone not the arm stone. What if it summoned the entire torso and attacked with arms giving you 65% immunity to damage while casting. They absolutely destroyed any hope of being a dragon bro.

            Interesting, no one ever reported a bug where animation won't appear randomly.
            If you keep using it few times in a row animation will glitch and you won't see arms.

              Just so you know, you cannot drop any of the dragon stones. They are considered tools so you cannot drop them to friends or other online players.

                    *****damage***** range, long ass windup, absurd stamina cost for what little it provides. Why even bother?

                      Id like to see what the full dragon model for the twinkling dragon would be and it would be awesome if when we used it, it would turn us into a miniature version of a twinkling dragon.

                          The rings do help somewhat, but they do not negate the 'naked' penalty so their help is less than you would expect. With the dragon the best defense is a well timed dodge and a sturdy shield. The Dragonoid is meant to be a Porsche not a sherman.

                          I have found a solid workable build by focusing on Pyromancy, seeing as the int and fth states boost the slam as well as fire spells. i use a millwood shield and the demon scar. It's all i need unless the enemy I'm fighting has really high fire defense. And sometimes I'll equip a staff or a talisman depending on my spell setup but that's situational adjustments.

                          it makes the build incredibly light and has very low physical stat requirements. So dex and str can be minimal to let you dump into hp, stamina, 18 or so attunement, and an even split in faith and intelligence. I'm up to soul level 111 and can do some solid damage with my pyro and also the torso stone slam.

                              One of my favorite tactics is to nail an enemy with a riposte or backstab, then time the twinkling torso slam to hit them just as their hitbox reactivates. it's a nice little wakeup call for some more quick damage.

                              All in all, the torso and twinkling torso are the stones to use. Since DS1 the head stones have been all but useless. Range is too short, hits are too slow and weak. I always felt the original intent was that the fire breath was for breaking guards by pummeling turtles into recoiling, with a bit of chip damage as a bonus. For that the original high stamina cost (and high stamina inflict against shields) with range and rapid hits was perfect. It was well balanced because users were always best served in laying short bursts to maintain their own stamina.

                                I always imagined a dragon transformation to be mighty and amazing... not some skinny dragon who doesnt have enough to eat.
