Resistant to bleed?! Can not confirm that. Inflicted bleed three times within 3-4 hits and down he went. I used Hollow Carthus Great-Curvesword, buffed it with Fire (since I thought carthus rouge wouldn't work). Man was this an easy fight!
My Stats at this point: 99 Hollow, 28STR, 28DEX, 38LUCK (43 with hollow weapon)
