If you deal enough damage/poise, you can poisebreak him right when he enters phase 2, which prevents him from using its attacks, he also gets the same death animation as if you used Pestilent Mist. I've done it with Onyx Blade.
Irythyl weapons or Moonlights GS are the better choice thanks to his Fire, Lightning and Dark resistence. No need to make this fight harder than it already is.

Imo the only difficulty about this fight is butterflies, most of Dragonslayer's attacks can be circled around.
Super Fun fight even if It is easy
I've been struggling a lot with this guy until I realised that you have to get up in his face and try to stay there and then It's a cakewalk
If you are having trouble with this butt head, apply some Pale Pine Resin. Actually increases your damage real well against this fella. I saw some speedrunners doing it and I tried it, works really well.
Grunbeld?
