      I spent an hour running around Irithyll Dungeon like a dummy looking for its oldest jail cell.

      Only to find out the description is a straight up lie.

        He didnt die for me, we had a toast and when I came back he left his armor and the storm ruler. In my mind, I like to think that now that he has upheld his promise, he doesnt need to fight anymore. He set off on his own to find a new adventure.

          The entries for the key's usages really need to be reworked. "Unlocks the oldest cell in the Irithyll dungeon." Why is that in there? After looking around on the net this key has only one use and it's the cell in the profaned capital. Which is where you find the covetous gold serpent ring and Siegward from what I've read elsewhere. You could have easily said that in one line instead of making it so confusing.

            I personally think that the "lone giant" that we encounter in the cell is Hawkeye Gough. There's no real evidence for this, but it seems like something Sulyvahn would do.

              I gave Siegward the equipment in the well, but then never saw him again. I explored the kitchen but don't recall anyone being there, and then opened this cell and he wasn't there. Any good explanation for this? Do I have to wait until NG+?

                i think it should be better explained ;] we need to find a giant (shortcut with elevator just next to him if we felt there) in rat's nest, then drop down to narrow bridge and go inside tunnel with rats, at the end there are 2 chests, but 1 is a mimic
