1. Try and get a black knight to drop you a shield, they are 95% against flame. You have two tries to get one, one guarding the low hp defense ring in upper undead burg and another in the tower up from the rats under the bridge. Much better chance getting
a drop if your humanity is high.
2. Talk to Solaire, you can summon him to help you with the gragoyles if you're non-hollow,.
3. Go non-hollow and summon a human player to help you as well.
try locking on. someone left me this message at the door and it helped me so much. take off all your heavy Armour if your wearing it as you'll need to be quick on your feet. i wouldn't worry too much about flame resist since the flames are pretty easy to
also, when you do get your humanity, turn human and you may be able to summon Knight Solaire, he is the guy that praises the sun.
How do you summon this dude? I tried talking to him while I was human and he's still rambling on about "staying there for a while to look at the sun...". These gargoyles are beating me, although I did manage to get the Gargoyle
Axe drop from them during one of my battles so I'm calling it even for now...
