      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.

                  So, I pretty much used a black separation crystal on Hawkwood, and I have no idea where to find him again. I'm fairly certain that he's no longer going to show up in my world again. :[ Is there anything that can be done, or am I screwed to fight my way up the path alone.

                    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.

                      Maybe if this thing has some poise and some wings even little stubby wings I'll probably use it more often but as it is it's ugly and useless
