A shame I have to play reactive when using an ultra. Because FromSoft decided to give us no Poise but enemies like these actual Poise.
I just beat the thing to death with the hollowslayer great sword +2. Takes a bit but it kills him. Don't try and block him. Wait for him to try and chop you dodge to the side of him use light light heavy roll. Assuming your fast enough to get the heavy in. If not just use light.
Noone loves u
All you need to kill the ones at untended Graves is a dark sword+10, enchanted with dark magic. You can use the ring that removes footstep sounds and/or sneak up on them from behind, since you can attack all of them from behind if timing and the direction you're coming from is right. give em a little backstab, reduce them to half hp. Just when they try to get up again, charge a heavy attack (all twohanded ofc) and kill them. Still works in Ng+4 for me. I had 52 strength, 47 dex, 35 int and 37 faith when I first tried it on Ng+4. If this combos dmg is not high enough for you to 2-shot them yet, pick up and equip the hornet ring that conviently lies a little hidden in the same area, equip it and get higher backstab dmg from it. Then it should be enough.
