Just took a half dozen or so stabs at Gwyn. He moves so fast that I can't drink any estus without getting re-clobbered. Frustrating. The only way I can has some estus is to try and put a pillar between us to block him, and even then it fells 50/50 if I can get enough time. I ended up trying a few different shields and since he's all flaming sword and what not I decided to upgrade my Tower shield to +14. This gives me 90% fire block (seeing as how I take damage no matter what from Gwyn) and stability in the 80s. Tried different weapons, too. Default BKH +5 feels slow and too close. Fire Zweui+10 is too slow, though it did marginally more damage. Last time I tried the halberd +15 with charcoal resin. Longer reach and faster speed feels like a winner. Damage wasn't as good as the others, but I got more hits in so it's a winner. Funny enough I think it did more damage when the resin wore off. Got Gwyn down to about 25% when I got it during an estus drink. Football time, so I quit there. ETA, no idea why Solaire's summoning sign ins't showing up. I swear I did everything to save him.
