      Important note for whoever is doing hawkwood's questline: after receiving the farron ring, reload the area and search the tombs in the right side of the shrine. Pick up hawkwood's shield and then travel to the great belfry to summon him as a phantom. You must have hawkwood's shield in the inventory for his white sign to appear.

        Bad news: I didn’t quite understand how the whole “Dragon Arms” thing worked at first.
        Good news: I had a great time beating up Hollows in the Cemetery of Ash with my bare hands.

          Reading this after being surprised by getting this accidentally. I reached the end of the peak and saw these "statues" doing Path of the Dragon so I was like "heh maybe I should try seeing if posing Path of the Dragon does something again" and indeed it did. Now I discovered there is a Twinkling Dragon Head Stone.

            Only way to make dragonform useable is to use the bowglitch so you can wear armor underneath. At that point you're doing it just for fashion and slightly different absorptions (better dark and fire but major lightning weakness)

              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.

                whenever I saw a dragon form user ds1/ds2 I was like “Oh cool a dragon bro” but in ds3 I’m like “What are you doing who would ever use this ****” and then I one shot them and laugh for at least 2 minutes

                    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.

                        Was expecting a hard fight against Hawkwood, but he never hit me and I killed him with few blows of dragonslayer greataxe in few seconds !?

                            *****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.

                                    Just a qick question, but couldnt the poise and phys protections problem be off set with the Wolf ring _3 and the Ring of steel protection +3

                                      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

                                                  The full dragonform does have some defenses. It has magic/dark absorb of 16.48, fire absorb of 32.66, lightning absorb of -15.44 (yes negative), and resistance to poison/frost/curse/bleed of 60. It has no physical damage absorption. I tried to add it to the entry myself, but it doesn't appear to have worked.

                                                    Just run as fast as you can. They won't follow you up the hill. Be careful unless htey box you in and then you die.

                                                      That aint dragon at all! That is some kind of starved deer who have AIDS. In DS2 dragonform was cool and i don't need to remove armor for henshin. In DS3 is useless and ugly.

                                                          max dmg of 536 @ 99faith/int. does not count as spell, hence: not boosted by sorc/miracle/pyro rings. can still be cast under vow of silence spell effect. boosted by flynn's ring (max 624 dmg). not boosted by Lloyd's Sword/Leo/Hornet or Clutch rings. boosted by deep protection (562). not buffed by warcry weapon art. there are some more things that could boost it, like red tearstone and stuff like that, but honestly...it's very underwhelming, especially since it costs a crapload of stamina and seems quite slow to cast. and the horrible defense and aesthetics of it make it even less useable

                                                            Damage of the dragon arms seem pretty low compared to the very long windup and I lose all my physical resistance. It's sad but it seems pretty useless to me..
