Any tips to defeating Ornstein and Smough Boss in Anar Lando? I've seen its recommended to take out the little guy first to make the second boss simpler than vise versa. I'm running pretty much all melee, zero range and for the life of me I can no get the two of them to separate.
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.
