Learn all gestures.

Guide Created By ~ Griffin

Here is the Dark Souls III Master Of Expression Trophy Guide
There are a total of 33 gestures to be found throughout the world of Lothric in Dark Souls 3. 7 of which are default from the start of the game, the additional 26 can be acquired through either NPC questlines, speaking / trading with certain NPCs in the world or by joining certain covenants and interacting with objects as you progress through the game

You won’t need to equip or use the gesture for it to count, simply acquiring them is enough
You can acquire the gestures through multiple playthroughs if you miss any, however, you will need to hold all 33 on one save file
Below, I will list all 33 gestures in the order you can find them as you progress through the Lothric

Call Over

Purchase a Homeward Bone from the Shrine Handmaid in Firelink Shrine for 750 souls then make your way up to the right of Firelink Shrine until you’re outside near a tower
Opposite the tower is a tree you can run up and jump off to the right to land on the roof of Firelink Shrine. This may take some practice and is easier to do if you unequip your armour (there’s no enemies here). Once on the roof, head into the rafters above Firelink, where in the middle you will find a crows nest
Drop a Homeward Bone (open inventory, select Homeward Bone, choose Leave, select to leave 1) where you will then receive the Call Over gesture
Please Note ~ If you are unable to make the jump across from the tree, wait  until you go for the Patches Squat gesture, you can then roll off the bridge onto the roof and access the crows nest that way

Curl Up

Deal with them all then go down the stairs at the back to find the Cell Key
Inside the cell is Greirat of the Undead Settlement who asks who you to find a woman called Loretta in the Undead Settlement
From the Undead Settlement, Undead Settlement bonfire, head into the building, go down one level then out on the balcony where you will see a body bag wriggling with an item on it. Hit this body bag then drop down (careful as there are a lot of enemies down here), collect Lorreta’s Bone then warp back to Firelink Shrine, you will find Greirat down to the left of where Andre the blacksmith is, give him Lorreta’s Bone (no other use for it in the game) to acquire the Curl Up gesture


Starting from the Undead Settlement, Foot of the High Wall bonfire, head down  the stairs then take a left rather than going through the gate, go near enough all the way to the end then on the right, you will find Yoel of Londo who is the only one moving in this section. Speak with him and accept his service to have him appear in Firelink Shrine so head there yourself
In Firelink Shrine, head to where Andre the blacksmith is then head left, down the stairs following the passageway to the end. Choose the Talk option with Yoel of Londor to receive the Beckon gesture


From the Undead Settlement, Cliff Underside bonfire, head out and up onto the rooftops, deal with the 3 Hollows throwing firebombs at you then make your way around as far as you can go to find Cornyx of the Great Swamp in a cage.

The first time you come to this elevator, you will meet Siegward of Catarina, speak with him where he will tell you the elevator is confusing him. To activate the elevator, step onto it the roll off before it goes down, this will bring another elevators so ride this up (make peace with the Giant up here to make a couple of sections in the game easier)
Ride the elevator back down around halfway where you can step / roll off onto a wooden ledge, walk outside to find Siegward talking about the Demon roaming around in the village, jump down and defeat the Demon (fight can be challenging so level up first but don’t proceed through the story)
