he can bleed but don't know about poison (keeped trying with 140 poison but after 10-20 hiit nothing happen :/)
Love the name
He's immune to poison.
I have 4 giant souls and I'm hitting him for 20 damage. Is this a bug?
yes and no...
so what you're saying is that you lose the 5 giant souls if you die in the first fight? and have to reaquire them to try again?
No, you keep the souls. Just don't use them and you're fine.
I just beat him with only 4 giant souls (only missing the ancient dragon)

Aromatic ooze helped alot on my +10 greatsword, but he still wasn't "easy".

Basic strategy for anyone struggling is, don't lock on him, hug his right leg ( side without sword) and just be patient don't get greedy get those hits in.

Best of luck, and of course PRAISE THE SUN!
Are you new to this game and getting bored? Well here's a tip

Use bonfire ascetic at the Undead Ditch bonfire and *magic* you have successfully made dark souls as your lover

11/10 would play again in NG+
I did this to get the Royal Soldier ring plus 2 not realizing it buffed Vendrick
this boss is easy even without using any boss soul
Of course he is easy but it takes like half an hour without any soul
I locked on, stood behind him, rotated right and just waited for him to attack and used good ol spin to win with a +5 blue knight halberd
It takes some time to agro him. Aquire at least 4 Souls of a Giant, get a high bleed weapon and start slicing his legs. Eventually he’ll build up a bleed effect. It took me about 2 minutes this way. Almost as soon as he started bleeding, the gate closed and he killed me with one hit :) Once he’s agroed, he stays that way. If you die, you’ll find your bloodstain outside the fog gate. Now get your best weapon and go in light. Roll to his back and start attacking. Always stay behind him and you should survive with minimum to no damage taken. Although if he hits you, it’s most likely gonna be a one hit kill if you have low def :)
Ok so i figured out that the forbidden sun WILL aggro him so be careful if you wanna see how much damage he has to take before aggroing . Anyways I managed to beat him on NG+ easily using the espada ropera+10 while throne watcher set+2 I also had all 5 giant souls just circle his left side and wail when he swings and the fight is over in less than 5 minutes.
Also I was using the life ring+2 Third dragon ring ring of steel protection+2 and bracing knuckle ring+2 the reason I had the knuckle was to counteract the weapon durability draining quickly.
This man is a hollow shell of his former self...both figuratively...and literally...
