Dark Souls - Final Boss: Gwyn, Lord of Cinder
There are a number of ways to best Gwyn. Given that I am not adept at parrying, I chose a tank approach. Here, I am level 78, wearing the Paladin Armor Set +5, the Grass Crest Shield, the Ring of Steel Protection, the Flame Stoneplate Ring, and wielding a Fire Great Scythe +10. I also took advantage of the extra protection provided by the Iron Flesh pyromancy.
After defeating Gwyn, you are given the chance to acquire one of two achievements depending on the ending you choose. If you light the bonfire, you receive the ‘To Link the Fire” achievement. If you do not light the bonfire, and instead leave the are, you receive the “Dark Lord” achievement. I chose the former.
