Some plot spoilers follow, figured I'd at least throw that out there.

First things first, you lose access to Kingseeker Frampt whom will be quite upset at your choice to follow up on the Dark, aaaand with that you lose his handy item feeding system.

Most importantly; Do not place the Lordvessel, it's best to not even try to get the Lordvessel as it doesn't matter as of yet, you're free to do whatever you want for as long as you don't progress the story past obtaining the Vessel.

You can of course get the Vessel for the teleport ability, just don't place it. Better be safe than sorry, eh?

You must go for Sif, the Great Wolf first. Once Sif falls, head straight for New Londo. Once you're at the part of finding Ingward on the chapel;
1): If you haven't received the Lordvessel, you'll have to slice poor redsuit up for the key.
2): If you have the Lordvessel, Ingward will be happy to assist the toppling of the fallen Kings, giving you the key.

Drain New Londo of the water, wear the ring and do your thing on the Four Kings 'til they die. (If you're looking for advice on 'em, best tip I can give is to don heavy armor like Havels, two hand your highest damage sword and wail away while chugging estus' everytime you hit 50% HP. Caster advise really isn't my strongsuit sadly).

Once the Kings fall, Darkstalker Kaathe appears and offers a deal. You place the Lordvessel for him, satiate it and plunge the world in eternal Darkness once the Lord of Cinder falls.

When his speech is over, whether you placed the Lordvessel yet or not, he'll have the "Join Covenant" option available. Join it and tada!

If you decide to return to Firelink after, Frampt is angry with you and will retreat into the hole he came from. If you wanna satiate the Vessel, just jump like a crazy person into the darkness below, you'll be caught by some magic before falling to death, no worries!
