To acquire the Lordvessel, you first need to defeat the twin bosses Dragon Slayer Ornstein and and Executioner Smough. I found that the best strategy for this battle is to take Ornstein out first by keeping him as far separated from Smough as possible. Chances are he will pursue you more since he is faster. Ensure your weapon is two handed during this battle to maximize your efficiency with it.

Once Ornsetin is down, a small cutscene will play, and Smough will appear with more health, and powered by the lightning ability. To defeat him, stay locked on, and dodge his attacks vice block, since the lightning ability will null and void your chances of blocking without taking damage. When you see him irradiate with lightning, it's time to move out of the way, or he will butt slam you, and yes it does hurt a lot O.O

Once both bosses are defeated, make your way up one of the rising platforms and into the next room where you will find Gwynevere. Talk to her, and she will grant you the Lordvessel. Bing, achievement unlocked. Be wary, this boss fight is one of the more difficult ones in the game.
