Ancient Dragon-Man: Boss Fight Strategy

The Ancient Dragon-Man is fought in a cave with little to speak of besides him and its rocky walls. Equipped with a Greatsword, the boss builds up Bleed damage on you. If it successfully lands enough hits and your meter is fully filled, you'll take significant damage. The good thing, though, is the Ancient Dragon-Man is also weak to Bleed. Its attacks are pretty brutal, but if you can dodge out of the way of them and land your own blows — particularly if you have enough Poise to stun them — then this fight becomes relatively simple.

The only other thing you have to look out for is a special attack where the boss spawns a dragon's head and either spews lava onto the floor or launches a fireball at you. Both are easily dodged. If you like, you can call in your Mimic Tear Ashes to fight alongside you, but this encounter is simple and — should be — easy enough for you to overcome on your own.
