I am confused. I have read a few articles about the final smelter wedge in the DLC for DarkSouls2 and they are not very clear. I am at the Fume Knight but it said in the walkthrough that you need to beat the fume knight to get the final smelter wedge and then you can Interact with the armor to fight Sir Alonne, but here's the rub: The fume knight will keep healing back up if you have any Nadalia totems left, but how are you supposed to get rid of the final totem if the Fume knight has to be defeated to get it? I need clarity. Any help would be appreciated.
Postnote: it's sixteen days later and now I realize that you don't need the final smelter wedge to interact with the armor and enter Sir Alonne's memory. You need the "Ashen Mist heart" from Dragon Aerie and 10 of the 11 smelter wedges. That is how to do it.
