Here's a highlight i took out of my live stream playthough of DS. Basically all i did was roll back and attacked only when he grabbed sometimes when he kicks but those are a gamble cause as you see i got grabbed after he kicked and well yeah i panicked lol.

I never parried on my first play through. Unfortunately, I struggled for quite a while before beating him. Second play through, parried and beat him first try.

I didn't parry him for NG or NG+... because I didn't try. I naturally assume parry would not work on a boss.

Just use game breaking iron flesh and tank him while you beat him to death 2 handing a weapon.

yeah I beat him without parrying too.

didn't use iron flesh, pyro, magic, or an element weapon. you don't need to use that crap and make the game a cakewalk.

yeah i tried my best to not use any guides or anything i didn't know about parrying till afterwards. I had really fun fighting the bosses though Althought Smough and ornstein was a pain it actually turned out fun once i knew what to do.
