Dragon Memories Walkthrough

The Dragon Memories is a very brief memory event. The ashen landscape is barren except for an ancient Dragon at the far end, who lies deceased. Approach the dragon and examine to receive the Ancient Dragon Soul. Examining it once more transports you back to the cave in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.

Notes

  • It's a bit curious that the Ancient Dragon Soul has the inscription: "Soul of the great ancient dragon that stands magnificently, deep within the shrine. This powerful being stands and waits, for whoever may visit him." But upon reaching him he is lying down, long dead and petrified, so it has probably been a while since he had any visitors.

  • It is possible that the petrified Dragon in the memory is the Everlasting Dragon who resided at the bottom of Ash Lake in Dark Souls.
    • The weapon created from the Ancient Dragon Soul, the Curved Dragon Greatsword, is similar visually, functionally, and nominally to the Dragon Greatsword in Dark Souls--which was obtained via the amputation of the Everlasting Dragon's tail.
    • The memory appears to take place in Ash Lake, but far in the future. The lake appears to have dried up, and the Archtrees have been destroyed.

However, the Ancient Dragon seems to vary in appearance from the Everlasting Dragon in the number of wings, number of wing segments, and size/shape of the head/horns. The Everlasting Dragon had four wings with four segments on the front set, a strange, beak-like mouth, and side-swept horns. The Ancient Dragon appears to only have two wings with five wing segments, a standard (if such a standard exists) dragon-like snout, and four back-swept horns.

It hints that the Ancient Dragon at the top of the Dragon Shrine may be the result of successful transmutation of the Lord Aldia's body with this dragon's soul as they look very similar. The Ashen Mist Heart might even be the poor creature's everliving heart. The memory looks less like Ash Lake and more like the dragon roosts, at the top of the stone pillars, where the Ancient Dragon may have died before The Duke's Dear Freja dragged it into the Tseldora mines and strung it up to it's nest to feed on.

Bug: When I left stuff (some Lifegems) near the Majula-Bonfire, that stuff appeared floating mid-air in the Dragon Memories.

      I'm surprised no one noticed what's going on here. The memory takes place in the Age of Ancients, shortly after the Dragons start to die. The Age of Ancients is described as 'Grey and barren with nothing but grey crags and huge archtrees and the dragons." Here, we see, Grey Crags, Huge Archtrees, and a dead Dragon. The Dragon was likely killed as Humanity started to gain strength. That's also why there's a sun, but everything is still pretty bleak and grey since the Age of Ancients is changing to the Age of Fire.

        What.

        Hold the ***** up now.

        What on earth is going on with these notes? The mere act of using your eyes should be enough to tell anyone what all is wrong here.

        For instance: if it looks nothing like the Stone Dragon of Ash Lake, then it probably isn't the Stone Dragon of Ash Lake.

        If the area looks different from Ash Lake, then it probably isn't Ash Lake.

        There is no shrine in Ash Lake. There's a dragon on a nest.

        This is absurd. This is fanfiction-tier speculation going on here.

          Heres a weirdly scary reaction i got from dragon memories, try leaving or dropping 8 Fading soul at Majula's statue (where blue covenant guy sits) and place them like making a square-shaped form. After that back to dragon memories at the tseldora mines. go to the far right and look up. there will be a floating unidentifed objects at the skies. Don't ask me why or how i noticed this..

            What if that gray landscape is actually Majula on a veeeeeeery distant past? I know, I'm basing this on something that was a glitch of sorts, but hey, before life itself existed, the everlasting dragons were already there, so it could be.

              To me, it looks like this is right after gwyn and the gang came through and killed everything. The gray dull landscape looks like that in the opening cinematic for the first game. The archtrees look like some were blown apart by gwyn's lightning. And since this would be another everlasting dragon, it would seem only fit that a similar weapon would come from it.
