Dark Souls walkthrough

OPTIONAL:  DARK SUN GWYNDOLIN AND THE BLADE OF THE DARKMOON COVENANT

Go to the second bonfire in Anor Londo (the one you reach by lowering the main platform to its lowest level). Equip the Darkmoon Seance Ring you found in the Tomb of Giants and approach the statue pictured above. It will disappear, revealing a path.

Before passing through the fog door below, kneel on the carpet before it. You’ll be given the choice to join the Blade of the Darkmoon Covenant. Doing so immediately grants you the Blue Eye Orb (which allows invasion of any guilty player’s world) and the Darkmoon Blade Covenant Ring (which, when worn, will allow Gwyndolin to warp you to the world of anyone who has killed Gwynevere). If you do not wish to join the covenant on this playthrough, and instead would like the Soul of Gwyndolin (for weapon crafting and the achievement), proceed through the fog for a boss battle. Note that if you kill Gwyndolin, Anor Londo’s Fire Keeper will attack you the next time you enter her vicinity.

BOSS – THE DARK SUN GWYNDOLIN

 

You want to be able to run at full speed in this battle, so equip light armor. You’ll also want a weapon that strikes quickly and has decent range (a spear works great).

Gwyndolin only has a few attacks. His (yes, it’s a he) volley of physical arrows can be avoided by simply following a zig zag pattern. The mass of small blue projectiles can be avoided by standing behind a pillar, rolling under them, or blocking them with a good shield. The large blue orb projectile will pass through pillars and is extremely powerful, so your best bet is to roll away from/under it. You can tell when its coming by the slower charge time.

As soon as you get close enough to strike, Gwyndolin will teleport further down the infinitely long hallway. This is why you need a quick weapon; you’ll only be able to get one or two hits in before he vanishes.

Learn his attacks and have patience. This is an easy fight, relatively speaking. Just don’t get hit! After the battle, pillage the chests in the area ahead for the Miracle: Sunlight Blade and the Brass Armor Set

    i have this issue with sens fortress, i cant access to it, i went to the church thing and killed the gargolite twins, but i didnt bang the bells cuz (in my mind) i sayd to myself "better clear the secondary misions before ringing the bell so you dont lose anything" so i did, killed every boss except the undergroud ones, i did the minotaur, the dragon tail thing, the buy with the big hammer, hydro, the moonlight butterfly one, all those, now when i had enought souls to gear up some stats & upgrades, i go to the church and ring the bell and it didnt happen anything, and i went to check sen's fortress and is still closed.... what to do ?

    There are two bells. You need to go to Blighttown and kill Quelaag to ring the other bell. Shes in the bottom of the swamp thats below the Depths which is shortly after you fight the Capra Demon. :P

    I have a question about page 8. I managed to kill Laurec, and obtained some ring. I killed him so he would run and kill the other Npc. Would it have been better to let him live?

    I assumed you needed to kill the Stray Demon for the ring, turns out you don't to get the Rusted Iron Ring. So just walk around the room to avoid it and still loot the place. It drops nothing of value anyway.

    How does a caster beat the asylum boss? He one hits everytime i miss a dodge, i cant do that hit and run tactic the melee uses because of cast time which in turn gets me killed, help please?

    You have to just stay behind the demon and get in as much DPS just remember always be up his butt :D

    In "The Depths", you can take the path behind the first butcher and kill the giant rat with a bow from the ledge you land on. It won't jump up to defend itself.

    If you mean the Four Kings boss battle, that Quelaag’s Furysword. You can find the details on how to obtain it near the end of pg 44 in this guide.
