The Dragon Head Stone is an offensive item in Dark Souls II.
The Dragon Head Stone serves the same purpose as it did in Dark Souls; the player is able to turn their head into that of a dragon and is granted the ability to breathe fire from it. When equipped in an item slot, the player may use the item button to breathe fire. For however long the player holds the item button, they will breathe fire continuously, steadily decreasing stamina. Moving around in any direction will not cancel the fire breath and the player may aim the fire breath elsewhere.
- Oddly enough, the dragon breath has no effect on explosive barrels. This is likely an oversight by the developers.
