      You can cheese him by luring him to where the temple where all the Ring knights are, lead him all the way to the back of the roof portion of the building and jump from an opening located on the right near the cliff, make sure you you also jump FROM the cliff. He should follow and jump off the roof portion of the church but won't jump off the cliff itself, he'll get stuck there. Simply make your way back and range battle him. EZ GG.

          Hidden Body, Slumbering DragonCrest Ring, and Pestilent Mercury. Deadly combo that works on almost all mini-bosses.
          Cast hidden body and approach him, stop a few steps from him, just so he wont aggro, then cast pestilent mercury.
          Back away and notice he approaches the mercury himself. Cast hidden body often so you wont be caught.
          He'll be dead without you breaking a sweat.

            I killed this guy the easy way by using Hidden Body and sniping him with a +9 Arbalest. Yes, I know, I'm pathetic.

              I shat bricks when I saw him charging towards me in this DLC. Was not expecting this enemy encounter given he is a Boss in the base game but with Less HP.

                Not gonna lie, when I was going through this swamp area for the first time I was caught of guard by him over in the corner waiting for me. I thought the giant in the area was the only real threat, until he wakes up and tries to kill me, luckily I kill him got his armor. Took Fromsoft long enough to put this in the game.

                  I wish it would respawn when you rest at the bonfire. Love fighting this guy.. and it kind of reminds me of encountering dragonriders as "regular" enemies in DS2

                    Can be lured and the only tip I have is that there is a down building with a ramp that you can climb up and force him to wander the bottom. It will lock on and try to get in close but you can stand above and pick it off with arrows or ranged attacks. I don't know the exact distance but I know there is a hill in between with the turtle preachers.
