This fight is good, but really serves to illustrate how poorly the games have gotten at balancing around ultra great weapons (it's only gotten worse). I wanted to play the entire game with Lothric Knight Greatsword and I did, I beat every single boss before this one with it, I beat NK I beat Lothric brothers I beat Soul of Cinder I beat everyone with it, then all of a sudden comes this boss and I can NEVER recover fast enough to roll after a swing from one its stupid swipes. I wasted almost 15 embers on this fight alone. I then gave up, bought the Splitleaf Halberd, buffed it to max and gave it a crappy bleed build which barely made any difference, and despite that along with the fact that I was doing literally less than half damage per hit compared to my previous weapon, I beat this immediately on my first try with not much difficulty. That speaks volumes.
