Can't stress this enough, guys - TAKE HIM TO THE WATER. The boss arena is way larger than it looks. I first thought the shore ends a couple steps into it and that I would fall to my death, similar to Hydra fights in Dark Souls. The opposite is the truth. By fighting him on the water, you can EASILY avoid the lightning attack in phase 2 and you don't get stuck on rocks or against a wall while trying to avoid his fast sequence attacks. As for my strategy, I parried him to death. Used Blade of Mercy +10, Hunter's Pistol and Runes for V. ATK (restore bullets, restore HP and do more DMG with V. ATK). On NG it took about 3-4 parries to end phase 1 and another 3 to finish him off in phase 2, doing something over 2500 damage per visceral.
