      Writing this here for anyone who's interested to farm these offline:
      Get the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring and use 1 humanity at least (The more humanity you use the better)
      Go to valley of drakes and farm the 6 drakes
      You should get 10 in like 30 minutes , potentially more if you use 10 humanity

        Yeah whenever I do a Dragon playthrough or use any dragon weapons. I just dupe these things. Much easier than farming them.

          I'm glad I'm on a high INT build currently so I can 1-2 shot the drakes with big-boy sorceries, because holy hell farming this sucks.

            The game is basically dead now so it's probably best to ignore or just grind if you don't have friends sadly :/

              "Obsidian Greatsword (PTDE only)" after remastered version, this line feels like only PTDE, not in remastered

                It's much more profitable to duel with people than farm these from Drakes. Their attacks can be unpredictable and stunlock you. Someone can place their sign at Oolacile Township and get summoned regularly. On PC I was able to find a duel every 5 minutes or so.

                  I was going to join Path of the Dragon and give them 30 Dragon Scales for the Dragon Torso Stone but hell no, farming is wayyyy too bad here to even bother. It's not even required for Knight's Honor or any Achievement so F that!!

                    Why on Earth would they make Dragon Scales a covenant item AND an upgrade material? These things take forever to get.

                      Something that kind of irritates me is base weapons and equipment are dirt cheap to upgrade, but then there's specialized weaponry (those dragon or boss weapons you like) and suddenly you're expected to cough up literally tens of thousands of souls and expend incredibly rare materials. Sure, you get rich quickly on higher NG modes, but it's kind of a pain to accumulate base game, especially when you need to keep upgrading weapons; upgrading piece-meal is a pain, too. Something else is that bothers me is every individual weapon class requiring some special category of ore. It makes sense, but it's difficult to keep straight, the materials are rare (or expensive), and there isn't enough dispersed throughout the game to upgrade more than a single weapon without going on excruciating farming ventures. I feel like the upgrade system is inefficient and lopsided with no apparent balancing.

                        OH THANK GOD THERE'S ENOUGH TO IN THE BASE GAME TO UPGRADE A DRAGON WEAPON TO MAX. I mean, drake farming sucks. And no one uses my dragon eye sign.
