Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011
If you go in human, there is a soul sign on a staircase (near the knight archer) to call an offline NPC (Solaire) to help.
If you want an easier time, take Ornstein first. But if you want BOTH souls AND Ornstein's Armor, take Ornstein out 2nd. It's harder, but the reward might be worth it. I did it that way. I believe I was around SL 60+ and had a completely upgraded Lightning Iaito and still had to have the NPC distract Ornstein for me so I could take him down.
It's definitely a tough fight. Good luck. Oh btw, after the fight...."Amazing Chest" ahead.
