Elden Ring Dragon Heart Notes & Tips

  • The player can obtain 23 dragon hearts on NG cycle, however only 20 are required to purchase all Dragon-based Incantations.
  • Used to interact with the statue at the Church of Dragon Communion to acquire several Dragon-based Incantations
  • Communion with dragons will slowly turn you into one, as such your eyes will reflect this as you consume Dragon Hearts.
  • According to the item descriptions of Magma Breath and Magma Wyrm's Scalesword, those who partake Dragon Communion would eventually turn into a Magma Wyrm. However, regardless of the amount of hearts you have consumed, aside from the cosmetic change on your eyes, you do not actually turn into a Magma Wyrm.
  • Dragon Hearts can not be sold.

      I think they should add a wyrm form in dlc, like the transition between still human but becomming even more wyrmlike, also add a frenzued flame fire breath, that would be beautiful ❤️❤️

        There should be a merchant that trades you rare stuff for dragon hearts. This way you have a reason to hunt dragons even if you don't need the draconic powers. Now they just collect dust in my inventory

          I got all of the dragon incantations and still have 4 hearts with a few dragons left to kill. Is there another communion available after Caelid?

          • Anonymous

            Wonder what the lore implications are for only the neo-dragons and wyrms giving the hearts. The hearts have gravel-stone, a characteristic of the ancient dragons, interestingly enough.

              This whole time I assumed Glintstone breath scaled off INT, but its the same as the rest, pretty disappointed!

                I’m pretty sure there is a Wyrm looking thing at the bottom of Stormveil castle that drops a dragon heart too isn’t there?

                  Just in case anyone is wondering, there's a total of 23 hearts but you only need 20 to get all incantations since the 3 you can get at Limgrave are also available at Caelid.

                    After killing every dragon in the game and buying 13/14 rituals i still have 2 hearts left. The final ritual is from the remembrance so it shouldn't cost any hearts

                    What do i do with them?

                      Can you only change your eyes once??? Had dragon eyes then fked it up when I did varres questline. Went to buy the last dragon spell I didnt have yet and eyes didnt change back.

                            A quick question about aesthetic effects of using the hearts. Next to the eye change (which has been brought up enough already), does anyone else notice that the characters face changes slightly? Especially the nose, it's now really thin and long and I can't seem to change it even in the rebirth tab, the sliders really don't take effect at all...

                              Does anyone know if eating too many dragon hearts changes the ending you get in this game? I haven’t traded in for dragon spells because I found an npc that warned about consuming dragon hearts. That you’re doomed to become one or something like that. Was wondering if you end up turning into a dragon at the end, not that I’m opposed to it. I’m just trying to work on age of stars ending.

                                Came here after the sad realisation that my magic only character is now a scaly. Had no idea about the effects of my heart eating hobby, so RIP my human tarnished, she will be missed.

                                  There is a big white Dragon on Altus Plateau, that is not listed here. It disappeared before I could kill it so someone should verify it drops a dragonheart.

                                    Came here after I noticed my eyes were dragon like. Not sure if it's the total amount of hearts traded that triggers the change or how many dragon spells you get, but I had fire breath, the decay breath, greyoll's roar, and the magma shot; Didn't notice an eye change till I purchased the magma shot. Also, does anyone find it annoying how a bunch of the wyverns are called dragons along with the actual ancient 6 limb dragons, while the Magma wyrm isn't? He has 6 limbs and isn't a snake dragon, just found it weird with the loose classifications considering the past souls games.

                                        The dragons to the west of Moonlight altar do drop Dragon Hearts (At least one of them did since I only managed to kill one so far)

                                          I killed Lansseax earlier but he didn't drop a heart. His page on this wiki also doesn't show him dropping one, so I think it needs to be fixed on this page.

                                            Ancient Dragon Lansseax did not drop a Dragon Heart for me but instead dropped Lansseax's Glaive Incantation.

                                                    Except for the 3 glintstone dragons mentioned, there are also 2 additional magmaworms, one located at the bottom of prison town, just past the guest hall site of grace, the other loacted south of the fort past seethewater river site of grace.


                                                    The second magma worm mentioned gave me the option of learning magma breath at the Cathedral. Not sure it's him or defeating all 4 of them.
