    The 6th boss you will fight & the first lord of cinder is the abyss watcher (easily one of dark souls best bosses).

    In the arena there will be other enemies that will not only attack you but also attack the boss if you're lucky which gives you a chance to attack him while he is distracted. As a melee character I simply used a shield and moved around him and dodged him when needed and got some back stand on him but be warned he does move fast.

    Although he may seem easy at first, once his health bar drops the second phase of this fight kicks in and he will become the lord of cinder form. The fight is basically the same but his attacks have more of a range and damage is increased but not by much.

    Meiphora Just a clarification: The path branch after the fight with Vordt. From that point you can go to the Curse-Rotten Greatwood, Crystal Sage or the Abyss Watchers. If you kill Greatwood, the Sage and the Deacons, Abyss will be your 6th boss.
    Also when in phase one, there will be 3 Abyss Watchers but only one will be a wild card. It's the one with Red Eyes.
    The other two will either attack the user, the phantoms or the one with the Red Eyes.
    The one with Red Eyes will attack anyone that is close to him, no mater who it is.
    Both the extra Abyss Watchers will disappear when going into phase 2.

    vSully Worth mentioning- there are a few NPC summons available.

    Black Hand Gotthard is directly in front of the boss door a short ways away.

    Pale Londor Shade is by the Keep Perimiter bonfire IF you have 5 dark sigils from leveling up via Yoel.

    Yellowfinger Heysel is back in Farron Keep near the Keep Ruins bonfire. Near the tower full of slugs with an undead bone shard inside. You have to have defeated her as an invader and offered a pale tongue to Rosaris in order for her sign to be there.

    Sirris of the Sunless Realms can also be summoned but I don't know her exact location.

    You can only have one summon for this battle unless you use the dried finger, which would allow you to have one additional.

    ImaginaryRuins My main problem with the 2nd phase is that the flame from the Farron Greatsword deals damage after each strike, which disrupts my rolling timing. I can dodge the strikes, but the flame remains and that deals damage to me.
