So I basically made this Giant Bomb account for this. The posts in this forum have definitely helped me out in my playthrough, so yeah. Anyways, the reason I'm posting this: Gwyn keeps crushing me over and over. So I need a few tips.
I know most of you would say to parry/riposte, and that's what I've been doing. But I have been using a Quelaag's Furysword since I made it in Anor Londo, and I have never looked back, except now. It only takes 425 of Gwyn's HP per riposte! And he's supposed to be weak to fire. I've watched videos where they seem to take down over a third of this HP with a single riposte, whereas I take maybe a tenth or twelfth. So I upgraded my occult club (I read somewhere that it does more damage to Gwyn), and it still does meagre damage (only like 50 more than Furysword?).
So yeah, I'm out of options. I can usually parry most of his attacks (except his 4-hit combo and the stab) but I manage to flop over and die. I highest I've been able to drop his HP to must have been aroun 15%, I guess. But I was on a roll then, and I'm not now. So any tips regarding which weapons and tactics I should use to beat him would be appreciated.
