Don't get too close, it's dark inside. It's where my demons hide.

You can go into the Duke's Archive. That's where you have to do battle with Seath the Scaleless. Go into that place with zero souls or at least have a Ring of Sacrifice equipped because the first time you face Seath you HAVE to die. There's really no way around that.
You can also go down to New Londo to release the water. That's not optional...just when you do it is optional. But make sure you have 4 or 5 Transient Curses available. You have to use those so that you can kill the ghosts. Once the Transient Curse wears off you have to use another one. After you release the water you can go down and face the Dark Wraiths... that's eventually where you have to go to fight the Four Kings.
Anyway, to release the water you need a key. In one of the houses...the one where a ton of ghosts are you can go up a ladder which is in a fire place. On the top is a vendor. He will give you the key to unlock the door to release the water. If you go there before getting the lordvessal you have to kill that vendor to get the key. But you don't have to do that since you have the lordvessel.
EDIT: when you go to face Seath have at least two cures for Curse. Seath can curse you...and since you have to face him twice have at least two cures....
also... during the second battle Seath will be immortal unless you break this crystal statue thing. Once that is broken he can take damage. I spent 10 minutes fighting him without doing damage and I had no clue why lol
