The player I summoned reminded me that I needed the covenant ring to fall down and not die. I don't think i would have fared well in that boss fight solo, but me and the summoned player beat it on the first try.
I can imagine NG+ would be a bitch.
Annoying, but it's more or less a dmg race, high poise, two handed badboy, charge
Even tho I did summon Solaire for Gwyn the first time I dont suggest it,its much more satisfying doing it on your own.
With Solaire its basicly you hit over and over while Gwyn pounds the warrior of the sun,nothing intresting to it
I'd agree with that. That's how I did it on my first go. There's nothing more satisfying than seeing Gywn leap at you when you first enter then immediately parry his attack. Guy goes turn in about 3 or 4 parries with Power Within and BKH equipped.
