Re: Dark Souls - October 4th, 2011
After minute upon minute of upgrading a few shields in the game, I got a black knight knight shield in the kiln and that made Gwyn a lot easier b/c I was actually able to keep some stamina after a hit. I basically just kept my distance until he tried the grab move and then went in. His jump attack was easy to dodge. Also had Mask of the Child and Ring of Favour and Protection. I only tried parrying him as a joke when my friend was over and got totally mutilated. I successfully parried one thing in the entire game - black knight right before Gwyn, and after that I kept trying but couldn't get it. Hell, I didn't even learn back-stabbing until 20 hours into the game and I'd beaten Demon's Souls before it (where I pulled off like two accidental back-stabs).
