If you want to take him down easily, just bait him over to the shrine entrance. He can't follow you into the shrine, and you can easily do a running heavy attack each time he pulls back from the entrance.

That's how I got him
Kill all the mobs before fighting him. Then lure him into chasing you, once you got his attention run and hide until he gives up. He will face the direction of the stairs he was at. Thus exposing his backside to you which then you can creep up and backstab him. Repeat until he is dead
where is he exactly, is it possible that he disappears after certain events?
Instead of entering through the main door into Firelink Shrine, go along the path to the left. You'll know when you see him. (Also, I do not believe he disappears)

It must have felt awesome when you finally got him though
Guys:

This "NPC" is not an NPC. He is not a character. He doesn't have a name nor dialogue, and hence has no personality. Therefore, he is not a character.

Please correct this article.
But he does have a name. On his summon sign he is known as "Sword Master"

It's very easy to win with Warrior, if you lure it to the stairs (you on the stairs and he on the platform), then when he is comming at you, hit him with a charged attack (I had 2h axe), then pull back and repeat, maybe useful for other weapons with decent range/stagger.
Didn't received a single hit from him that way.

He Can also be summoned for Champion Gundyr boss fight in Untended Graves.. note when he is summoned there, he actually uses the Chaos blade, as seen by him losing 11 HP every hit

I wondered about that.
He can also be summoned once defeated at the first boss of Highwall.
Forced weeabo man off the cliff but didn't get his items, is that normal?
If you go back to where you first saw him the items should be there to pick up, I went back right after sitting at the bonfire shrine and they were all there
Restart the game, they should appear

Yeah, they should appear where he was, or sometimes in the shrine
