Final Boss Strategy

Beating the final boss in Dark Souls is actually easier than you might expect. In fact, it is possible to defeat it without taking a single hit. The first thing to consider when taking on the final boss is to parry as much as possible.

You can parry and riposte the boss until he has zero health and without taking any damage. If you are struggling with this, remember that the boss specializes in Fire attacks, so use Flash Sweat to absorb some of this damage and use a Black Knight Shield for additional Fire resistance. Try to attack after every four-hit combo that the boss sends your way.

You can use the arena's pillars to lure the boss to, then run around them to stay out of his reach. This can buy you the time you need to drink an Estus Flask, and just generally he..

Unlockable: New Game +

To unlock the New Game + feature, whereby all of your weapons, armor and souls will be carried over into your new game, simply complete the game once.

The only things that are not carried through are any unique items, such as keys or embers.

Note that in addition to keeping your items, enemy health and damage will be boosted to keep the game challenging.

Giant on Roof

The easiest way to defeat the giant on the roof before the golem in Anor Londo is to stand in the doorway and hit his legs. When the giant attacks go down the stairs. Keep repeating this process until he falls to his knees then use a two-handed attack with your weapon to finish him off.

Armored Rhino Helm

For a chance to use the Armoured Rhino's head as a helm when you fight it in the undead Burg you must defeat it with your weapons and not the nearby fire pits.

Lordvessel Bonfire List

To be able to warp between Bonfires in Dark Souls (and even then you can't just warp to any one you want), you need to acquire the Lordvessel. To get this, you first have to ring both Bells of Awakening, before finishing Sen's Fortress and reaching Anor Londo. Defeat the bosses there and the Princess will give you the Lordvessel.

This will then allow you to warp between the bonfires below, once you have discovered and activated them:

Altar of the Gravelord (at the Tomb of the Giants)

Altar of Sunlight (in the Undead Parish)

Anor Londo (the one by the Firekeeper in Brass armor)

Chamber of the Princess (Gwynevere, Anor Londo)

Darkmoon Tomb (at Anor Londo)

Daughter of Chaos (between Queelag's Lair and ..

Lightning Imps Left of Giant Stone Guards

The easiest way of killing the Lightning Imps in Anor Londo is to go to the hall with Giant Knights and climb out of the broken window. Go to the right, drop down behind the fence and collect the item, then kill the imps through the fence with your bow and arrows. When you have killed the Imps walk through the hole in the fence and open the gate next to where the Stone Guard was standing and kill the other two Imps. Doing this will create a shortcut to the first bonfire and the Giant Blacksmith.

Writing Floor Messages

In Dark Souls you are able to see messages from other players scrawled on the floor of the game world. You can also write these yourself. They appear with a different image next to them depending on how other players have rated them.

To rate a message or write one of your own, you need Orange Soapstone. You can buy this from the merchant in Undead Burg. You can use it whenever you like and it will not be consumed. Select 'Use Item' and you will be able to write a message. Select it while standing over another message, and you'll have the option to 'Rate Message'.

Cutting Off Boss's Tails

For cutting off boss's tails, you can employ a variety of tactics. For example, using a Claymore gives you the ability to reach the boss with relative ease, while you can also use magic spells, such as Lightning Spear and Fireball.

Rare Weapons

Below is a list of the rare weapons in Dark Souls, as well as how to come across them in game:

Gargoyle Axe:

Cut off the gargoyle's tail to get the Gargoyle Axe.

Moonlight Greatsword:

Dragon Greatsword:

To get Priscilla's Dagger, you have to cut of..

How to easily defeat the gaping dragon in the depths

You will need a overhead slash weapon (like a halberd or axe or great axe and whatever armour you want. A shield that blocks 100% phy damage and lots of stamina

When you enter the arena don't charge it let it come to you but try to keep it away from the walls and wait for it to charge then when it's recovering hit it's tail with the overhead slash (running one-handed light attack for halberd heavy one-handed standing attack for axe and great axe) attack around a faint ring at the base of it's tail for a quick sever after tail is severed wait for it to charge then attack it.
