Dark Souls: Prepare to Swag Edition is a very complex game aimed for children under the age of 5. It features Also keep in mind that this game is 100% fair at all times, and there is a solution for everything besides sliding down a ladder and falling through the world. I also recommend getting DSFix if you're going to play offline. You can uncap the FPS limit, but you should keep the rate to 30, so you don't fall through the world when you slide down ladders. **Remember: If you learn something make sure to rate up and favorite so you can find this guide again later!**

You can 2h your weapon if its a greatsword or ultra greatsword and sort of stunlock him with some heavy armor w/ Havel's ring and wolf ring/cloranthy ring. I usually have on Havel's Armor, Zweihander, Grass Crest, Havel's Ring, and the Wolf Ring. If you have a spear, you can hide behind your shield, or 2H R1 spam 2. If he backs away and tries to gather humanity to buff, hold with both hands and r1 spam or use a heavy weapon (Hint: Bleed damage) Manus, Father of the Abyss When it's done R1 spamming, 2h your weapon and give it 1-2 hits, then put your greatshield back up (or a medium shield with good stability, atleast 71) Repeat that process (Hint: Bleed damage) Black Dragon Kalameet Step 1. Ask Gough to shoot it out of the sky Step 2. Black Knight Shield +5 Step 3. Spear (MAX LEVEL) Step 4.

Make sure you have the Covenant of Artorias, and equip it. Step 2. Make sure you have a high dmg. weapon and kill each of the four kings quickly Step 3. ? Step 4. Profit Here is a video for people having difficulty on NG+ Note: Iron Flesh backfired because he couldn't move well to the next King, so don't use it Gravelord Nito Strategy Step 1. Divine weapon Step 2. Stay where you dropped down from Step 3. Kill the little runts that run toward you first with your divine weapon Step 4. Learn his attack patterns while you have your shield up, and avoid his grabs. If he grabs you, R1+L1 Spam, same for all grab attacks Step 5. Attack him up close from behind when possible, and make sure to avoid all attacks. Seath the Scaleless Strategy Hint: Darkwood Grain Ring is great to use Step 1. Cursebite Ring, if he uses his curse attack, just run away from him Step 2. Lightweight shield (Grass Crest Shield recommended) Step 3. Run run run run run run run run run run run into the back behind Seath and break his little crystal power generator Step 4. Run into the center then quickly ninja flip (or fast roll) into the back and cut off his tail, may take a few tries Step 5. If he starts to lift his tail quickly back off by ninja flipping backwards and wait until he's done. When he's thrashing his tail, now is a good time to pop an Estus. Make sure you have atleast 7-10 just incase. Step 6. Repeat step 4-5 until you cut off his tail Step 7. Now that you have cut off his tail *(huzzah)* just run into the middle and trigger his attack, then run to his tentacle tails, and hit them while you're dashing, then ninja flip forward and repeat running toward his tentacle tails and hitting them while dashing, it does a lot of damage.

Repeat Step 3 FINAL BOSS GWYN, LORD OF CINDER STRATEGY Step 1. Get Havel's Armor, and be able to atleast fat roll instead of terminator walking. Step 2. Get your favorite spear upgraded (Optional) Flame Ring + Havel's Ring helps Step 3. Get your favorite shield (I used Greatshield of Artorias, it has highest Stability, highly recommended or else you're pretty much screwed) **Edit** Havel's shield has better all around resistance and the stability change from the Greatshield of Artorias is barely noticeable against most bosses. It also has a nice defensive buff for the left handed strong attack Step 4. Run/Block your way past Gwyn without dying, and then circle around one of the rock pillars in the middle where Lord Gwyn starts out, and whenever he gets stuck in the pillar, Estus if needed, or use Green Blossom or whatever you need to use. WARNING: DO NOT ESTUS DURING THE FIGHT OR WHEN HE'S NOT STUCK BEHIND A PILLAR, HE WILL THRUST HIS SWORD AND ♥♥♥♥ YOUR♥♥♥♥♥♥UP. Step 5. Repeat Step 4 Hint: Don't fight Lord Gwyn with Low Stamina. You also need high poise which is what Havel's Armor gives you. If you don't have high poise and he hits you, you'll stagger and not be able to move because he's ♥♥♥♥ing your♥♥♥♥♥♥up with his OP sword. Contribution from Lord's Blade Caius: Try parrying Lord Gwyn with a fire weapon. Note: You can try parrying Lord Gwyn, but for most players (like me), it had to be very precise and most people couldn't pull it off. Some people Contribution from Boomcome: Use Great Combustion x8 on fully upgraded pyro glove.

HOW TO GET +7 ESTUS FLASK IN YOUR FIRST PLAYTHROUGH
1. The first firekeeper soul should be in the Undead Parish, next to Sen's Fortress, near the Tower Giant in the big church with the Channeler and cluster♥♥♥♥ of Balder Knights.
2. New Londo past the bridge near the first ghosts
3. Blighttown near some fire♥♥♥♥♥♥dogs
4. Duke's Archives behind the Octopus Ladies in the Giant Cell
5. Anor Londo Firekeeper (Hint: No repercussions or consequences by killing her)
6. Quelaag's Sister is a firekeeper, the white spider woman. Spoiler:You can join her covenant and save Solaire if you get the covenant +2. See video at the bottom.
7. When you first visit Lautrec in the church in Undead Parish, open the cell and leave him be. Eventually he'll kill the firekeeper in firelink shrine and you have to find his world in Anor Londo past the door the♥♥♥♥♥♥sentinels are guarding, that holds the Ultra Giantdads with giant halberds. You should NOT restore her soul, and instead hold onto it for the next playthrough. Hint 1: DO NOT KILL THE LAST FIREKEEPER UNTIL YOU HAVE +6 ESTUS FLASK (doesn't matter which order, I usually kill Quelaag's Sister last) Hint 2: If you kill Lautrec before he takes the firekeeper soul in Firelink Shrine, wait until the next playthrough and get the firekeeper soul either in New Londo, or in the Undead Parish.

Solaire can also be summoned during the Ornstein and Smough battle.

Refer to the BIGGEST PIECE OF INFORMATION IN DARK SOULS EVER section for a more detailed explanation on how to get the armor.
PVP 4 CASULS
If someone bows, then it is probably going to be a honorable fight, which would be like a duel. They might be trying to communicate to you to not heal or not use anything OP.
Don't backstab spam (which means you backstab then until they die), because then you'll be a♥♥♥♥♥ If you backstab once and they die, they shouldn't be invading because they have too low of a vitality to PvP without getting 1-shotted in the first place.
If someone breaks the honor code, do whatever you want.
If someone is in a build with light armor and clothing, they're probably Dex ♥♥♥♥ and have high damage output and low poise, (unless they have the Wolf Ring.) They are also known to be Backstab spammers (against the honor code), so TWoP is a good counter-measure if they're chain backstabbing.
If you see someone in a Giantdad cosplay, they're probably going to try anything to win, and will win because THE LEGEND NEVER DIES.
Note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ABIDE BY THESE RULES BY ANY MEANS OR CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS IS JUST IF YOU ARE AN HONORABLE PERSON AND MIGHT WANT TO HAVE A FAIR FIGHT. IF YOU ARE INVADED, YOU ARE WELCOME TO USE ANY WEAPON, OR MAGIC THAT YOU WANT. IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO USE THE COMMUNITIES' HONOR CODE.
