For sunken... the mobs suck for dumb difficulty. I was actually a bit baffled when fighting them, as I didn't know how to approach in melee, so I got a lot of trades, and they're built to come out on top of trades -_-.
It's the bosses though... if you're going into sunken, you better hope to god that people still have their signs down for the bosses, because imho, the game summons were only decent for one fight, ok'ish sorta for the other, and just completely rubbish for other fight... if they even make it there. You will need the summons... they're not something you can feasibly solo in NG+ and upwards.
Iron king dlc though... perfect! Everything hunky dory :). If you get your ass whooped, you'll probably still be having fun at least.

I was able to complete them on NG++ so they can't be that hard in NG. The only thing I haven't been able to beat was the Iron Keep challenge route.
Smelter ain't that bad, just the way to him. My suggestion is get a phantom, have them 2h a Gyrm great shield with baneful bird ring, ask them to sit in front of the gate thing, pull the lever and run for the opening while he's tanking the fire. Also poison arrows work wonders on the leaky lava dudes
I went through sunken king dlc at sl100 and it wasn't hard. As long as you have some upgraded equipment you should be fine. The challenge areas are ridiculously easy if you approach them the right way however the bosses might give you some trouble if you attempt them solo.
