On the righthand side of the boss area, near the entrance the player comes through, there is a small pool of water and a ridge the player cannot traverse. However, should the player manage to get Sif to jump towards said ridge, they will end up on top of it and most of their attacks, including the dreaded spin, will not be able to connect. While the player themselves will no be able to hit unless their weapon has a particularly long reach, Sif will eventually slide or jump back down; if the player is quick, this provides a valid opening as Sif typically lands facing away from the player.

TBH. Sif was the best boss ever. I just loved his design and how it is sad when you must kill him. Its even better when you realize that Sif was only trying to protect his master's grave ;~; 11/10

DS3 was my first Souls game and I played through it twice. Then I played DS1; I still tend to summon NPCs when I can, but I'm okay at the games now. For Sif, my strategy was - tank up in Havel's armour, fatroll and all, Wolf ring for poise, and get out my +5 crystal halberd (which I just use for bosses). I got close to Sif, tanked his damage - though I had to use Estus once I think - and demolished him in about one minute. In DS3 these kind of tank builds weren't really viable because of the weird poise system, so to me they're a bit overpowered in DS1...

I was medium rolling and beat him on my first try with 3 estus, pretty easy. Also a really cool fight though, I feel badass doublerolling through the double circle sweep. If you're fat rolling you should just drop the extra armor and git gud instead.
