Are you having trouble making it through Dranglae? Don't feel bad. While it is noticeably easier than the original Dark Souls and its predecessor, Demon Souls, Dark Souls 2 still has bit of a steep learning curve and very challenging fights. What does an incredibly hard game need? EVEN HARDER DLC!
Good thing Prima Games has a complete guide (that can be found here) that will take you through the Crown of the Old Iron King Guide DLC. Sadly, it won't save you when the red phantoms come to your game for a visit.
