Most fair yet challenging boss in the game in terms of balance, there are very little 'bullsh*t' attacks like Dancer's endless spin attack or Aldrich's instakill arrow rain. It is just a test of skill like Gundyr, and all attacks are well telegraphed. I recommend a fast weapon, UGS or Great Hammers are not so great for this fight unless you have mastered them. I used a +10 Heavy Flamberge to beat every boss in the game, and it's my go-to weapon of choice for STR builds.
My biggest tips: Be as aggressive as possible, he staggers after a few hits. The longer the fight takes, the more likely he is to surprise you with a new move you've never seen before. Stay close to him at all times except when you want to heal. Do not panic estus immediately when your health is low, wait for an opening, dodge and then drink up (unless you are far away enough).
