Dark Lord

Reach "The Dark Lord" ending.  

After collecting all four Lord Souls and placing them into the Lordvessel, the door behind it will open up so you may enter Gwyndolin's domain. Follow the path to him. Once defeated, leave the way you came to end the game.

NOTE: You can’t get this and To Link the Fire in one playthrough. Two playthroughs are required.

To get this you just feed the lord souls into the lordvessel by the serpent after beating Dark Lord Gwyn.

After defeating Gwyn, instead of lighting the bonfire, leave the way you entered. Then you get to watch an epic ending cutscene.

I was rockin' full Darkwraith during the cutscene and was very pleased.

Is it possible to get both achievements on the same playthrough by resetting? Or do you have to do two runs?

@#5 Two runs, it requires giving the lord vessel to Kaath after defeating the 4 lords or kings or whoever instead of talking to fraamp at the firelink shrine and putting down there.

Holy crap what did I just comment? I think i went full retard. You get the achievements at the very end of the game basically you get a choice after the final boss battle to light the final bonfire or leave it dark.

Gwyn is easy if you get Solaire to tank for you. Use pyromancy Great fireballs or sorcery spears/soulmass. Parrying is possible but annoying and a missed parry can be deadly.
