Dark Souls 'Bonewheels Everywhere' mod is as horrifying as it sounds

Against my ever-growing backlog, I probably shouldn't play Dark Souls Remastered. I mean, I definitely will, and I'll definitely moan about how no matter how many times I finish the game and/or watch other players' walkthroughs, I cannot ascertain a reliable strategy for beating Ornstein and Smough.
