Farming Guide

  • They can be farmed by using Bonfire Ascetics at the bonfire in Dragon Aerie. The tricky part is killing the dragons that guard all the Crystal Lizards. Your first run should be dedicated to killing the dragons, preferably with magic or some sort of ranged attack, then run through again killing all of the Lizards and getting all of their loot. You get at least five Petrified Dragon Bones every run along with some other useful materials like Twinkling Titanite.
    • Four of the Crystal Lizards around the area drop a Bone: three near the first dragon, one near the second.
    • One is on the ground near the second dragon, see above.
    • The dragons sometimes drop them.
    • (SoTFS) The Guardian Dragons do not wake up unless you attack them, break eggs near them, or get too close while wearing the Moon Butterfly Set. Enemies breaking eggs does not seem to wake them (for example, a Crystal Lizard broke some while running away and the dragon remained sleeping). If you are careful you can kill the Crystal Lizards without waking the dragons. The dragons have a chance to drop the bones too, and they can be sniped from safe location, so it might make sense just to kill them anyways.
  • Another way to get them early in the game is to burn Ascetics at the Shaded Ruins bonfire and go grab the one Dragon Bone in the chest near the bonfire. The second one is obtained by killing the Giant Basilisk, you might need to take out some of the Lion Clan Warriors. Also, there are three Twinkling Titanite you might want to pick up in the cave where you found Ornifex.
  • Another very, very quick way to get some Bones is to go to the Lair of the Imperfect bonfire in Dragon's Sanctum and use Ascetics after you pick up the three by the entrance to the area. You can quickly run back and forth from the bonfire to the Petrified Dragon Bones, getting three at a time. The Imperfect enemies walking around also have a chance to drop Petrified Dragon Bones, Dragon Scales and Titanite Slabs.
