    How does the Dragon Stone Torso work?

    Post by Back Lot Basher on Fri Feb 17, 2012 4:13 pm

    I was planning on joining this covenant, and saw something about getting the dragon torso that turns you into kind of a "dragonoid" with a force attack. But I was wondering if you have to strip your clothing and armor off to use it, or does it go over your armor, maintaining that armor rating. Does it weigh anything?

    It's an item so it's used like you would flasks. It strips you of all your armor and you are basicly defenseless, but more easily able to become a glass cannon from my understanding. That's my understanding of it anyhow.

    Its like naked, but with a force miracle type which increases your attack power a LOT for a few seconds.

    I believe while you are Dragonoid you defenses raise a bit from the amount of Humanity you have as well. I'm working on making on right now, I'll let you know.

    It seems like an interesting setup for dex users, and might go well with a kind of pyro theme in the build. It says something also about unarmed attack going up, but does this refer to fist weapons like claws, or bare hands?

    bare hand ded attack gets anew move set and gets much stronger though the damage shown on the stat screeen still says 20 you'll usually do 300 or so with a regular r1

    Not sure what you mean by "combo" but...

    R1/L1 quick claw swipes
    R2/L2 big claw swipe
    roll R1 bite
    running R1 diagonal claw swipe

    My draganoid just got his body a couple days ago.

    Cool, thanks...that's what I was looking for. Does the boost to fist attacks require you to be completely unarmed, or do things like claws get a boost from being in dragon form as well?

    The attack boost affects everything, even bows

    The boost is epic, and lasts about 5 or 6 seconds. If you time it right the roar stuns them, breaks their guard, and with the right weapon the fight is over. I have done over 1400 damage on lightly armored foes with my Chaos Man-Serp.

    The boost also makes unarmed attacks pretty devastating, between 300 and 400 damage is average. Plus what is cooler than being naked and smashing some guy with your beak for 400+ damage? Lol.

    Humanity raises physical defense normally. Being a dragon does not increase the amount. With 99 humanity you are basically going to be going around with a physical defense under 175, there is no way around it.

    i think the op was asking about the dragon bodies effect on fist type weapons and no claws and caestus's don't get a boost only your bare fists.

    Only weapons. It does not effect pyromancies, sorceries and miracles.

    Did I read somewhere that if you continue to rank up in the dragon covenant, your boosts from the roar/torso go up as well. Can you confirm this one way or the other?
