I seriously did not want to have to make the run back to farm humanity and or try to farm titanite chunks to boost my lightning spear since that was the only way to increase my dmg output since the lightning spear takes no bonus from str/dex.
After farming silver knights forever now I boosted myself 22 levels to become lvl 72 and HOLY HELL!! I just beat them myself without Solaire's help and captured Ornstein's soul. After you told me about the armor option by beating him last I was pretty dead set on doing that route. I learned how to eliminate fatboy fairly simple without to much concern of Ornstein.
Then I reduced my pack load to as minimal as possible so I could move around fast since I am still only running 9 endurance. And after learning Ornstein's attack patterns and figuring out my black knight sword could do over double the damage of my spear to him I was able to make short work of him.
Also just picked up Lautrec's full armor set, even though its nothing to special.
