    Advice for gwyn.

    Post by swordiris on Sat Jul 14, 2012 3:40 pm

    I'm on ng++++ now and can honestly say I soloed every boss except gwyn. I am stuck. I know a lot of people find him easy but for me he is the most difficult boss. I'm decent at parrying but he intimidates me too much and I mess up.

    My toon is dex/faith. What strategy should I use besides parry.

    This might not help you because of your toon, but what I do is:

    1. Find the biggest stone that sticks out of the ground

    2. Circle around it to avoid his attacks

    3. When the chance is available, attack him with homing crystal soulmass and/or crystal soul spears

    4. Rince and repeat until he dies or you run out of magic.

    5. If you run out of magic, try using a weapon like the Black Knight Greataxe, because it will allow you to hit him from around the stone.

    Like I said, this might not work for you, but this is what I do, and I solo him every time.

    Also, if your able to, try and wear heavy armor. It will prevent him from knocking you down, and it will reduce the damage from his attacks. You could also try using a heavy shield.

    That might work, I'll try that. Can BKGA be buffed?

    You could cheese him, there is a Sansviedot video that shows how. But that's only if you want to be cheesey. . .

    Get the GSoA and use that or maybe even Havels shield, dont try and parry/riposte! Equip Havels ring and if you are not using the RoFaP then use the Darkwood Grain Ring!

    Equip your best physical/poise and fire resistant armour and just tank and attack!

    I had the GSoA and Black Knight Sword +5 and killed him on the first try first playthrough BLIND (meaning I had not watched or read anything about him) I wish I did as you can actually farm the Knights leading up there for Slabs/Chunks.. but anyway..

    Use a Greatshield/Good weapon, I am not sure if the Zweihander will stagger him, his armour is not that great so it may.. a Lightning weapon may work as well! I am quite sure you can backstab him too so just circle around him and wait for him to attack, the shield will/can open him up for the backstab!

    Good luck! well you are on NG+++ or something silly you have beaten him like 4 times already silly

    I didn't think they dropped Slabs, just Chunks. Did I miss this info somewhere?

    I beat him first time on my NG as well, also blind. Was highly disappointed, but also relieved after Bed of Insanity.

    They respawn happy

    me too actually.. thought it would be a lot harder.. Smough & Ornstein are by far the hardest! Sif is super easy as well!

    Bed of Insanity?? what is that

    CSS staggers gwyn you could spam him with 16 CSS's if you are on NG+++ that should take him down to pretty low HP, then you have an additional 24 SS to hit him with if you have 10 attunement slots - with the Crown of dusk and bellowing dragon crest ring this should be enough - if you choose to also use the TCC for added AR you will have 8 CSS and 12 SS but that is more than enough to kill him. Heck, if confident enough then get your RTSr equipped - drop a SS slot for PW and go super hypermode on him and hit him for over 2k per Spear. Easy win Shrug But I still prefer chilling with gwyn just dodging his attacks, parry then shrug xD
