you think that’s bad, wait until you fight him WITHOUT Anri right after!! Aldrich was the first boss to really frustrate me. Probably took about 5-10 attempts. Next difficulty spike is Lothric Princes, though depending on what kind of weapon you’re using they might not be as bad as they were for me with my stubby little lothric knight straight sword. Those guys killed me the most besides the big three DLC bosses.
