This is a very basic 2 phase fight that had me worried because I reading that people say you need 3 people to kill it. No way. One person. Easy kill.
He’ll appear at the far end of the room with a very cool video introduction.
2 Phases that last from 100% health to 51% health and 50% health to dead.
Phase 1: Stand a good distance from him, wait for him to vomit this yellow smoke at you. Run to the side. He’ll charge that location. Once he does, get 3-4 swings in on his legs (or his tail – I hear he drops a weapon if you cut his tail off but I didn’t get it ). Move away. Rinse repeat this process for a while till he’s at around 50%. Then we enter phase 2.
Phase 2: Basically phase 1, except that he won’t throw his yellow smoke vomit until he’s slammed his face into the ground near you. So, you want to get close to him – this is easy since he’ll be chasing you around the room like you stole his crack pipe. When he rears his head back, run away or to the side to avoid the bite. Then move away. And wait for him to drop the yellow smoke then charge. Again 3-4 swings on his leg and move away. Repeat this until dead.
Occasionally, he’ll puke on the ground. Not sure what it does but I’ve played enough video games to know that if the boss puts it on the ground, you don’t want to be hit by it. So I ran away from it each time.
He might fly up into the air on occasion. Just be aware of where he lands and not be there when he does so. Otherwise, he moves very very slow so this is a very easy encounter for 25,000 souls and your Blighttown key. I took a single hit in the game from getting stuck on a rock in the environment. But other than that, easiest boss fight yet. I had a harder time with that giant rat in the Depths. I think he was the first boss 1 one-shotted.
