Very easy to dodge. Beat him 2nd try.
the weapon order is not fixed on the first fight. without phantoms i got sword spear curved sword back to spear then staff. that part should be taken out.
Bleed at 22 luck, 99 hollowing, using a carthus rouged washing pole (base bleed 38) proc'd in 5-6 hits. Fully fleshed bleed builds should take less especially with hollow weapons.

It says he is resistant, I havent tested anything as comparison but that seems more standard than resistant.
