Use the lloyds talisman, keep a close distance and make sure to rush if you see the start of the estus animation then punish them with a backstab. So keep a knife of sorts on you if you plan on doing a lot of damage to the chugging host.

If it's a 1v1 situation just parry/BS them and then throw a loyds on their corpse. Most usually don't have enough speed to roll away from that.

Can't give you much advise on ganks though. Never been great at dealing with them.

If you invade/get invaded you should be prepared for healers but if you get summoned you would frown upon healing

Estus is hell'a annoying in PvP, Ive been getting back into DS1 recently on a level 55 invader, my advice would be to use lloyds talismans. They wear off in a certain range I think, but if you can down your opponent then hit them with another one. Its a shame theres no reliable arena mode, so we have to make do with the host-favoured PvP.

Also: To the hideously overlevelled giantdad that trapped me repeatedly on the bridge in the painted world. Im coming for you and your damn flask... again.
