Quote: "Ornstein's spear and armor are found nearby, which could suggest that he was slain by The Nameless King (unlikely, since the armor isn't attached to a dead body), or that Ornstein forsook his duty as a dragonslayer after meeting him, as it is found in much the same way that Siegward's armor is found after Yorm is slain. "
I dunno, this doesn't make sense to me. Didn't Siegward pass away (either from exhaustion/injuries or because his duty now was fulfilled or both), and you find his armor and weapon? Why is it so unlikely Ornsteins body had rotted away or was eaten by dragons, leaving his armor behind after he tried to kill the Nameless King and had been killed?
So either it's the same thing, both passing away, you finding their armor without bodies in them, or Siegward didn't die, just fulfilled his mission and walked off... or maybe us finding Ornsteins armor and weapon left behind at Archdragon Peak IS proof he was beaten by the king a long time ago.
