since andre has returned and lots of other DS1 things, could this be the giant smith? they are almost identical in looks if i remember correctly.
it's not the same giant
The smith died in Anor Londo at his anvil
SPOILER ALERT
No , its gough from dark soul 1 dlc , it is pretty obvious. as for the giant black smith in dark soul 1, you will fin him later dead in anor Londo
Unfortunately you find the giant smith elsewhere in the game in a very familiar location, but also very sad situation.
When I talked to him the first time all he would say is "I help anytime". And he would only repeat this over and over again every time I talked to him. Is he already my friend? I don't even think I did anything at all.
I think if you chose the White Branch as your burial gift he already starts as friends, and you don't have to talk to him first
I found that once you undergo the transition to being hollow he no longer helps you out and begins to fire at you once again. Might have just been me, but it would make sense regardless.
OP here. I found that if i spoke to him once again he would align with me again.
He only throws javelins when enemies (or if the player hasn't made peace) threaten the white trees scattered in numerous levels. These trees are associated with Dusk of Oolacile and this Giant is Protecting her.
Longbow Larry is his name
If you first meet Patches in the Church area, were he wears a Onion Armor he has killed the Onien Knight Siegfried and the Giant.
i don't know what triggers the giant dying but i can confirm that he does not kill Onionbro

Patches does not kill either of them (he MIGHT kill another NPC thou).
Souls game owned: Demon's Souls (US+EU),
Dark Souls 1 (PS3, PC), Dark Souls 2 (PS3,PC+DLCs+SotFS)
Bloodborne (+DLC), Dark Souls 3 (PC+DLC, PS4)
Lies, Patches is your very bestest friend, he would never harm anyone and he sells most ultimate leather armor as described in description... Just ignore the stats they lies to you too.
What do you mean by "too late" , i haven't met patches yet and the giant died :(. Is there a time limit or is it level based ?
The greatbow behind him also looks like Hawkeye Goughs bow and he drops the hawk ring... very suspicious...
Take a good look at Hawkeye Goughs bow...
He is not Hawkeye Gough as this giant is born far into the future and Gough is from way into the past. Though this giant could be a descendant.
Quite possible, I didn't think the giant is gough but somehow related because of all his stuff, tbh though there are so many references in this game that I find it quite hard to figure out if something is more like an easter egg or if there is an actual canonnical connection.
well after looking up the bow on google image search I still think they look quite similar, in fact the arrows from the DS1 image I found look like the arrows fired by the giant in DS3 so I feel that they really are connected or that it is at least a reference to hawkeye and the smith from anor londo (who gough mentions in his dialogue), doesn't mean it really is that bow but the arrows, the giant and the ring are quite strong implications.
So basically.. I .. killed him by getting all of the white saplings?... F**K
Getting the branches shows him that you've most likely cleared every area where he can help you, so his job is done and he can die in peace I guess and give you his ring... which Hawk Ring is amazing for those whom can't OHKO headshot those *****ed enemies outside of sniping range with DSGB or DSB.... cause Pharis Bow is ***** (looking at you useless weapon art) and Onislayer is for DEX build, not quality.
so I went up to make peace with him again. //.:: FrozenSnake ::.
