Recently, I accidentally discovered a method to trigger the Kiln skip. (This was on Remastered with the item and enemy randomizer mods, but it would likely also work in the full game. I haven't yet tested it.)
-Get and wear the Covenant of Artorias. -Beat Four Kings in New Londo's Abyss Hole. -Talk to Kaathe and be warped to Firelink Altar. You need the Lordvessel for this! -Offer a Lord Soul to the altar. -Use a Homeward Bone. -Be warped inside 'Gwyn's Prison' which is the Kiln.?
I'm unsure if offering a Lord Soul is necessary for this trick. May it be useful to you. Enjoy!
