If Dark Souls III had dragon tail weapons…

I've recently been replaying Dark Souls 1, and I was thinking about how interesting the dragon tail weapons were – every time you meet a dragon, you think to yourself *"Now then, how am I going to get to its tail?" It's easy early on, but Seath and Kalameet…

So, I thought it would be fun to create dragon weapons for each dragon in the game! In some cases, the dragon weapon is actually already in-game, transposed from a soul, in which case I've replaced it with a new item.

Lothric Wyvern – Wyvern Blade

"This sword, one of the rare dragon weapons, is formed from the tail of a mighty wyvern, once tamed by the knights of Lothric. Wyverns and drakes are not true dragons, but this blade still contains echoes of their once mighty power."

Skill – Unleash Dragon – Only whispers of the might of the archdragons remain, but this is enough to unleash their wrath in a two-handed shockwave.

Lothric Wyvern (Dragon Barracks) – Hollowed Dragon Greatsword

"This greatsword appears to be one of the rare dragon weapons, but appearances can be deceiving. The mighty Wyverns guarded over Lothric Castle, but something sinister lurked beneath their stone scales."

Skill – Pus of Man – Temporarily shatters the blade, unleashing the abyssal presence within in the form of a great serpent.

Lothric Wyvern (Dragon Barracks) – Hollowed Dragon Greataxe

"This greataxe appears to be one of the rare dragon weapons, but appearances can be deceiving. The mighty Wyverns guarded over Lothric Castle, but something sinister lurked beneath their stone scales."

Skill – Pus of Man – Temporarily shatters the blade, unleashing the abyssal presence within in the form of a beasts claw."

Ancient Wyvern – Archdragon Greataxe

"This greataxe, once of the rare dragon weapons, was cut from the tail of an ancient wyvern, perhaps a descendant of the Archdragons. It once drew power from the deformed dragon king, but even whispers of an Archdragon's might are a force to be reckoned with."

Skill – Unleash Archdragon – Unleashes the strength of the Archdragons in a vicious two-handed attack, reminiscent of the great mystical power it once commanded.

Ancient Wyvern (Boss) – Archdragon Greatsword

"This greatsword, once of the rare dragon weapons, was cut from the tail of an ancient wyvern, perhaps a descendant of the Archdragons. It once drew power from the immortal stone dragon, but even whispers of an Archdragon's might are a force to be reckoned with."

Skill – Unleash Archdragon – Unleashes the strength of the Archdragons in a vicious two-handed attack, reminiscent of the great mystical power it once commanded.

Yorksha – Yorksha's Dagger

"This dagger, one of the rare dragon weapons, came from the tail of Yorksha, forsaken sibling of the Darkmoon. Reminiscent of a cold and lonely place, it commands a power far greater then that of its previous owner."

Skill: Lifehunt Dance – Execute a graceful combination of deadly attacks, drawing on a forbidden power to cause intense bleeding. This unique weapon demands an elegant and weightless fighting style, reminiscent of those who guard the forsaken church.

Oceiros, the Consumed King – Moonlight Greatsword

** New Transfusion – Paledrake's Staff**

"Carved from the trunk of an archtree, Oceiros used this heretical stave to cast the most forbidden sorceries, warping his body and driving him mad.

Archtrees were once thought to be everlasting, but like the dragons their time is long since past. They are still a force to be reckoned with, and this branch can be used as a powerful melee weapon."

Skill: Crystal Haze – Release a deadly haze of tiny crystals and frost, damaging opponents, and greatly boosting the strength of crystal sorceries.

King of the Storm – Storm Curved Sword

New Transfusion – Sunlight Blade

*"Echo of a long forgotten miracle, sustained only by the memories of the one who authored it.

The blade is wreathed in sunlight, channeling an ancient technique used by the knights of the Sun's First Born, eventually only being sustained by the presence of a physical weapon.

This miracle tells a very different tale of the Lord Gwyn's barbaric archdragon hunts, and seems to be a firsthand account."

Darkeater Midir – Frayed Blade

New Transfusion – Obsidian Greatsword

"This greatsword, one of the rare dragon weapons, was once rumored to lie within the great calamitous dragon. Perhaps such weapons are naturally drawn to wyrms consumed by the Abyss."

Skill – Abyssal Flame – Unleash the fires of the abyss in a two-handed plunge, summoning echoes of Humanity to pursue your foes.
