Grafted Dragon is a Fist  in Elden Ring. The Grafted Dragon scales primarily with Strength, Faith and Dexterity and is a good Weapon for dealing additional Fire Damage to foes within a wide range. 

 

The embodiment of the power that still remained in the dragon's head that was grafted to Godrick's left arm.

The wielder's arm will take the form of a small dragon, sprouting sharp dragon fangs at the fist.
This weapon cannot be two-handed.

      Could someone please edit the item's description to correctly state "The embodiment of the power that still remained in the dragon's head that was GRAFTED to Godrick's left arm."?

        Why does Godrick call this piece of **** "truest of dragons?" Even the item description calls the dragon small. Someone introduce this man to Placidusax

          The reason everyone in the game thinks grafting is a disgusting, shameful, terrible crime is because it results in equipping this.

              Grafted Dragon’s “Bear Witness!” Skill is buffed by right hand weapon buffs much like many other Left Hand Priority Ashes Of War like “Shield Crash” and “Golden Retaliation”

              Bear Witness shines at inflicting status effects, because each tick of fire damage will inflict the status effect of your buffed right hand weapon as if you landed an actual hit.

              I could see Seppuku being a busted combo but I’ve not tested it yet.
              I have tested RKR and achieved over 5000 damage with other buffs.
              I also tested Eclipse Shotel and it works too. However just as you need 18 hits with the shotel to inflict death, you need 18 “hits” with the grafted dragon (but this includes the fire ticks)

              TLDR: Run Eclipse Shotels, Fia’s Mist, Death Lightning and this in your offhand for a real Deathblight build.
              (It’d still not be good but it’d be something)

                Welp, now I know what remembrance weapon I'm gonna dupe in-game. Godrick had a point, but the only thing better than one dragon hand is Two dragon hands. Anyone know if they'll powerstance?

                  When I level up strength more I'll use the grafted gs or the axe in one hand and the grafted dragon just to to spite godrick for saying i'm unfit even to be grafted

                    This weapon seems awesome. I only tested it at +0 against the stagecoach trolls + entourage in Limgrave, as well as gateway ruins, but I had low stats. Anyway it did really well against those enemies, far better than other +0 weapons I experimented with.

                    When you activate it, you plunge your first into the ground, immediately gaining hyper-armor for yourself and also creating a pool of lava that damages and stun-locks anyone on top of it (i.e. anyone in melee range in front of you).

                    Next, you do an uppercut that seems to do very good damage and can knock people down. I knocked down the godrick knights each time I did it.

                    Finally, lots of small blobs of lava get spread around a relatively large AoE, doing relatively low damage but for a good amount of time, and each proc causes the enemies to flinch. So you can fight the enemies while they're being damaged by the lava. I was able to wipe out the entourage behind the stagecoach with just a few casts of it, purely from this lava shower.

                    So overall this gives you hyper-armor, stun-locks and/or knocks down enemies, and does great damage. Main disadvantage is it is the only fist weapon I'm aware of that cannot be paired; you only have one of them. (Which makes sense lore-wise.)

                    By contrast, the Magma Wyrm Scalesword (from ruin-strewn precipice) did worse damage in a tiny area and its lava disappears after a second or two.

                      How to turn this sock puppet into a hand held nuke:

                      - Get 99 Fth
                      - Get Erdtree Seal +10
                      - Grab a pleb weapon with your favourite moveset
                      - Use Electrify Armament
                      - Go up close to something and then use this thing's WA

                      The damage and effects of weapon buffs on your main hand, will transfer over to the WA of Grafted Dragon (Which will take priority when held in the left hand to boot). A 99 Fth Electrify Armament cast with a +10 Erdtree Seal adds 275 flat lightning damage to a weapon. Which then gets added to each fireball and tick of the fire patches from Grafted Dragon's WA leading to insane damage (Even at only +4 GD and +4 ES I managed to hit a Putrid Avatar for 3.8k with a single WA, not accounting for the remaining fire patch damage ticks)

                      For something a bit "Mogh-ier" you can swap Electrify Armament for Bloodflame Blade. You lose out on the raw damage (Only 147 damage compared to 275) but get a bunch of bleed build up from each hit (Including flame patch damage ticks). Throw in Fire's Deadly Sin for more buff based shenanigans (As it too will apply Bloodflame Blade's bleed build up)

                        It could have long range and flex like the tai axe did in DS1, maybe be attached to your lower bicep and have sweeping moves and maybe a forward thrusting punch

                          I really dont like the weapon art?? It just doesn’t hit where it should, I’m gonna go back to angels wings because atleast that one can hit things

                            if you use this with dragonscale blade, the lightning damage and frost get added to the fire the AOW makes. its incredibly broken

                              As patch 1.04, its weapon art is glitched when used royal knight determination on a right hand weapon and then casting Bear Witness, it get the 80% damage bonus, its quite crazy, it might work with some other buff. Thankfully not as broken in pvp because of how long the animation is, you can easily run away from it.

                                Armament effect applies to AOW because this is considered shield. Bloodflame blood loss, frozen armament frost, poison, light, holy effects on main hand will apply to AOW which makes this weapon versatile.

                                  currently there is a bug with this weapon: it copies the weapon art of your off hand, much like the FDS of old when it was able to apply death blight and bleed passively

                                    Meh. Not impressed so far. On the special skill, there is no hyperarmor from what I can tell, so I keep getting interrupted.

                                      Does this weapon's skill take over the right hand skill, like a parry. If so that would be really cool and it'd be funny to juke people out. Might make it a usable weapon, considering it can't be two handed.

                                      • This thing's weapon art or whatever is really good against those red Albinaurics that roll at you with the spikes in the Mohgwyn Palace area. It starts emitting flames as soon as the animation starts, so it stops them in their tracks and staggers them until the animation completes.

                                          wish the weapon wasnt static when not doing the weapon art. like, maybe have its tail move a little bit. It looks weird. The blasphemous sword looks really nice how it is constantly moving for instance. Just have it move a little, instead of being a statue

                                            If you use this weapon in your left hand like Godrick did then its ash of war gets priority like a shield would, allowing you to cast it while wielding a different weapon in your right hand. This allows you to ignore the fist moveset and range limitation by using another weapon, still having this ash of war available, and still having the right-hand weapon’s ash available by two-handing.

                                              A feel like this weapon just got the middle finger by From. I'd make it actually look like Godrick's. Make it something like a Colossal weapon or whatever would look right for the player, and still have it's weird, almost lazy, lumbering fighting style. Change it's scaling to A (str) D (dex) A or B (fth). And finally make it's weapon art deadlier with a much bigger close up explosion, and have the fireballs deal better damage. The fire on the ground is fine.

                                                    I really feel like this ought to dual wield in order to be useful. Right now you're better off using any other fist weapon, and putting fire on it if that's what you really want. The convenience of one weapon slot for two hands is the only reason to use fist weapons in general, in my opinion.

                                                      This looks more like a sick crocodile rather than a dragon head. Godrick had a dragon. Nonetheless I enjoy this weapon :)

                                                            Remembrance duplication didn't allow me to purchase a second Grafted Dragon. Something to note is that while you can't use it linked, it doesn't bounce off of (at least) medium shields or hardened enemies. Someone mentioned that the skill only scales with faith. It seems that the intended uses for this weapon ended up being less common than expected by the developers. The eruption is pretty neat, but it feels way slower than it needs to be to actually be useful.

                                                                You can't two hand it, but if you want the moveset of the two-handed dragon you can get a second one(via remembrance duplication) or have another fist weapon in your offhand. Other than that it seems this wasn't really intended to be used as a main weapon, but something you switch to for it's special skill.

                                                                It's hardly what I would call a powerful weapon, but it is fun.

                                                                  • Anonymous

Not only does it look absolutely nothing like the one Godrick uses, and I truly do mean NOTHING like it, but you also can't even Two-Hand it like you can every other fist weapon in the game.

                                                                    Seriously, if I had to pick between this, or runes, I'd take the runes and then jump off a cliff.

                                                                    • Anonymous

The only other weapons capable of this is the steel-wire torch and other shields which can't really make much effective use out of this. Stacked this with Flame Grant Me Strength, Golden Vow, Flame-Shrouding Tear, Strength Knot Tear, Flame Scorpion Talisman and Shard of Alexander. Hit the rot dragon for over 10,000 damage and Melania for around 4,000 at at 50 STR after the strength knot and 40 FTH unboosted with Bear Witness. Absolutely melts big bodies and still hits average-size enemies hard even if all of the fire balls don't connect. If someone in PVP is dumb enough to git hit by this, it will one-shot them several times over. It helps that you look like an absolute idiot with this setup, seems to bait people into itself.

                                                                      • Anonymous

Why it's not in regular size of dragon's head? If it was, the fact that you can't dual wield it would make sense but in currrent state being so small there is no reason for it to not be able to. I hope they cahnge it in future updates and actually make it what it should be fom start, BIG ASS DRAGON HEAD

Don't get me wrong. On paper, there's a lot of options that will do more damage, cost less FP, or will come out faster. My point is that there aren't many for the relatively low bar to entry of 16 faith.

                                                                              • any large/overhead major or minor bosses get my Bear Witness flaming uppercut to their groin, repeatedly. The WA absolutely annihilates whatever is above it. Don’t be scared to spend the Somber stones on scaling if!

Overall tends to be a good stagger breaking weapon. Just wish the wa was faster or was harder to stop.

It eats through the health of an Erdtree Avatar especially. Distract the tree via a summon and get up close using bear witness to take a staggering chunk of health, as every flame meteor shot hits the tree at once. Pair with a thrown oil pot to really bring the heat. Can recommend for general purpose usage, but especially as a fire weapon.
