And you'll enter a room with the boss, Seath the Scaleless in it. Stand still and let his crystals hit you. Only start moving around If a skull meter starts building up. That's you being cursed. To counter it, equip the Havel Armor.

And back into the library.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 338
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 338

There will be several spellcasters lingering about. They are easily killed due to slow casting and knocking them down with the Zweihandler.

When done, run through the opened door and you should be at a bonfire that's sitting on a balcony. Rest at it.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 347
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 347

Jump down from the platform and go into the forest yonder.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 348
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 348

Avoid these golems as they give little to no souls and are only good for grinding certain special shards for weapon upgrades.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 349
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 349

Once close enough to the yonder, you should see a dirt/stone/crystal path. Go down.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 350
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 350

I very highly recommend to avoid ALL fighting onward as there is little to no space.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 351
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 351

Avoid the golem ahead and keep going down.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 352
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 352

Jump down on the small edged cliff.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 353
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 353

Go to the right and there should (very often) be some floating text messages along with subtle snowflakes falling down. The area here is essentially a hidden/invisible bridge.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 354
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 354

Run down on it and take a left onto this crystal. AVOID THIS GOLEM AT ALL COST! He WILL bash you off and down the crater before you can even work 30% of his HP off. Run up ahead behind him.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 355
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 355

Then jump down right here. Should also be some floating text and falling snowflakes.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 356
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 356

Run straight towards the small passage ahead. Stick with the snowflakes.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 357
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 357

Run through the path and there should be a huge opening ahead with some clams. Avoid them and keep going ahead.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 358
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 358

Seath the Scaleless will come flying down and start crawling towards you.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 359
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 359

Run around him to the right and avoid the ground-petruding crystals at all cost.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 360
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 360

"If you get caught in the crystals, you will die instantly due to being cursed if the meter gets full. Being cursed will reduce you total HP by 50% until you remove it by special means.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 361
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 361

Before even bothering to fight Seath, you have to run behind him and melee this crystal.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 362
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 362

Doing so will destroy it, disabling Seath's Immortality.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 363
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 363

Seath has only AoE attacks, either in the form of breathes or bursts from his middle section. Avoiding both is a good idea to not get flung around and cursed.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 364
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 364

Your best bet as a melee user is to swing at his side-tails. If he moves around too much for you to hit them, you can simply run up in his front, provoke a frost attack and then back to the sides, avoiding his breath while also having loads of time to chop away at him.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 365
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 365

Be careful to not linger around behind him as he will start to wildly tramp and smash around with all his tails. To avoid getting caught and one-shotted, keep Seath in the middle of the room.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 366
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 366

Seath has a LOT of health. He will take a lot of time and patience to kill unless you have lightning/fire weapons but he should eventually fall dead If you avoid his slow attacks.

Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 367
Dark Souls Walkthrough - Dark Souls 367

Once dead, a bonfire will spawn. Rest at it and warp to Firelink Shrine.
