Having played all the Soulsborne games this is a dumb question but one can hope. I accidentally hit the barrel man, I didn't kill him but now he won't speak to me. Will he de-aggro after some time or am I S.O.L.? I haven't gotten the mask piece yet.
I would suggest finishing the quest with the Carp and Harunaga. He adds Koremoris stock to his inventory after that.
Just go rest at an idol and come back, he'll let you talk to him again.
