After you go through the fog run all the way to the center right after he blasts you with fire. Stay a good distance from him so you taunt him into using that fire blast. While he's doing that run towards his legs and hit I'm like 2-3 times then run away again an repeat till he's dead.

Fight him alone you do a lot more damage.

That looks like a silly way to do it. All I did was wait until he goes to breathe fire while on the ground, hit is foot a few times then when he streches his wings to fly, run towards the fog gate, wait for him to come back down and repeat

Dont lock on, make sure you keep his wings in view. The moment they start flapping, book it. If you wait till his feet leave the ground its already too late.

Wow that vid is painful to watch. He continually drains all his stam meleeing so he wont be able to sprint if it flies. Head to the HIS back right and chill by the til about 8 feet from the back right foot.

He will do either tail slam, just back away slightly, it hits more on his left so just by being on the right you will be fine if you back up even one foot, also his feet stomp during this so dont get under em, the back right stomps first so you can go in and get a hit or two if you want after it does. His tail slams twice btw.

He then has aerial fire, because of where you are, he will turn to shoot in your direction aka 90 degrees to the right. Be prepared to sprint and actually start sprinting before he takes off. After a couple times you will learn right where the tail will be. You wanna sprint towards the exact spot on the tail you have been chilling at, note that if he lands on you when he comes down it kills you.

He then has homing aerial fire, he re-aims his aerial fire constantly during this version, if you sprint towards the tail still he will almost 180 but the time he lands. Dealt with the exact same as normal aerial fire except you have to turn more.

His last sorta move is just reposition. He flies up and over to the left or right and lands. Dont let him land on you and get back to your spot ASAP. You have plenty of stam at SL 1 to do this.

Things to watch out for:
the edge. This is what will likely throw a wrench into your plans. Sometimes he backs up all the way to the edge. You have two outs here. 1 his reposition move, 2 his homing fire. In my experience he will never do tail slam when his tail is hanging off the edge so stand between his feet. He may stomp so watch out for that. As soon as he flies you gotta be quick and figure out which way he turned and sprint towards the tail. If he doesnt turn much make sure not to get crushed when he lands. I find he slides himself back against the edge till he is either turned enough to chase him out or near the entrance giving you room again.

stam management: never ever let your stam drain all the way. It disables sprinting for a few seconds and will almost certainly spell death if he flies when you cant sprint. You want to wait till he lands or finishes attacking and get in a few hits. Dont get greedy. Id start by only attacking once and then adding in more per opening till you find out what works.

no delay: sometimes the delay between moves is gone. Always be prepared for this. Iv seen it kill a lot of people. Good luck, if you desperately need help near 2 mil souls you can summon me.
