      It's a shame I didn't get to enjoy this fight as I killed him on my first ever blind play through. He seems like a great boss but I was too strong for him I guess. :/

        I think it would contain the soul of the chosen undead from dark souls to because they (usually) linked the flame in the throne of want. So technically if you played dark souls 2 and linked the fire, you would be fighting an aspect of yourself. Thoughts?

          so if this contains the souls of everyone who linked the fire than that means "The chosen undead" from DS1 and "Bearer of the Curse" from DS2 are in there right? (if they linked the fire of course)

            Since the Soul Of Cinder is a manifestation of all the ones that linked the fire, the soul should be worth a ton right? Gwyn's soul was worth 75000 souls after all. +25000 when used... Bull *****ing *****. Should be worth A LOT MORE

              Transposing Bug24 Apr 2016 01:22  

              After the battle, I immediately warped back to the firelink shrine to transpose this weapon. After the transposition the soul was gone, but I could not find the sword either. This killed NG+ for me (at least for now).

                the lore makes absolutely no sense...18 Apr 2016 03:35  

                so by their definition, linking the flame is the canonical correct ending <br/><br/>so why even bother to put the dark lord ending on DS1 and DS2 if they're not even considered cannon?
