      Unendurable frenzy can stop him spamming BHS. With enough FP he can be one shotted in a first playthrough but I couldn't quite pull it off in NG+ and the f**ker used a flask but the stagger from the frenzy incantations make the a solid tactic against him.

        I'm normally the first to cheese at the slightest difficulty but fighting this man toe to toe is the most fun I've had in this entire game. We're both dual weilding fast, high bloodloss weapons (me with dual scimatars) and both of us have bloodhound step.
        It's a goddamn anime battle in here, *****es teleporting behind eachother and swooshing blade spins and saluting eachother.
        ****. I'm gonna be so mad when I beat this man, he is an absolute treasure.

          The power stance whip attacks have a vulnerable recovery. If light equipped, rolling toward those attacks can allow a safe R1. When very close he will prefer to dodge instead of attacking, so it is possible to attempt a roll catch until stamina is depleted. As others have mentioned, well timed jump attacks and guard counters can also help.

            Look...I tried. I'm a mage. He bloodhound steps away from every spell I throw at him. I could get him down to half most fights but he'd always get a nick in with those whips so I'd have to try to heal and then I'm done. After the 10th I didn't care about honor. I'm going Flame of Frenzy ending anyway. So I used Comet Azur and fried his punk ass with about 65 Int and the +9 Carian Regal Scepter. The tale of House Hoslow is told in YOUR blood

              Lvl 25, using a +5 cold great stars w/ wild strikes. 22 vig (27 w/ radagons), full raging wolf armor set, max dragoncrest talisman, & turtle talisman. Turns it into a 3-shot. Use a +hp+Stam regen flask as soon as you spawn, hit him with 5 poison throwing knives during his animation. Catch him with jump attacks, then wild strikes until frost and/or bleed. The animation for a jump attck with great stars (great hammers) has a perfect input on the dodge roll follow-up to dodge his attack after a BHS, if he chooses to avoid your jump attack.

                OP NPC/enemy, teleports dodge perfectly on every attack, only way i can find is let him attack and counter, but all for nothing due to bleed building, you'll end up dead and out of crimson tears before killing

                "extremely weak to status efffects" IF YOU CAN EVEN LAND A HIT ON HIM, pretty sure he has input reading, try attack? dodge
                try heal? attacks and inflicts bloodloss
                try dodging/rolling? cathes you mid roll
                can't do anything against him except wait for death

                  Used Grafted Blade Greatsword +8. He doesn't dodge charging attacks. I'd hit and run until I could land a combo. I wore his armor and spoke to his stupid brother.

                    For a no leveling and no upgrading run a strategy that worked for me was rot breath plus serpent bow and serpent arrows. Four blue flasks to have two flasks when invading him. Immediately rot breath him. Keep your distance and wait for him to do an attack that has enough recovery time for you to shoot a poison arrow. Otherwise he'll just dodge your arrows most of the time. He'll heal once, but with the two blue flasks you have enough to rot breath him a second time, which will finish him off.

                    Be sure to hold the button when breathing rot on him to get the full duration and use the directional stick to follow his movement during the animation. If you do it right you will roll catch him trying to get out of the rot spray and it will use your full FP bar @ level 1.

                      Be warned, I didn’t get the emote the first time. I fought him, died, tried again and then got it. So if you want the emote, make sure it actually tells you that you have it.

                        Crucible Horns incantation works gloriously against him. Once charged, has absurd range and throws him in the air. Most importantly, this does not make him invulnerable (unlike crit attack animation) so you can punish him mercilessly when he's getting up (I guess Giant Hunt works just as good, if you can land a hit). Moreover, you get enough hyperarmor for the charge to not be staggered (I've traded hits during attack and didn't even flinch despite using confessor set that have next to zero poise) and with Two Fingers Heirloom, Faith-knot and FTH boosting headgear it requires little to no Faith investment.

                          An easy way for int builds against this guy is spamming Loretta's Slash. The damge is really good and he will be staggered with the down swing. Cojmbined with how quickly the AoW launches, he won't have time to heal

                          • I'm a mage but 2 handed the Great stars is the easiest strat, remember to always dodge into him and spam R1 you can probably hit him 4-5 times before he used bloodhound steps

                              Being a human type NPC enemy and vulnerable to status effects I thought I wouldn't have too much trouble with him. I was wrong, I used the physik with cerulian hidden tear and tried to hit him with Ekzykes decay as soon as I was able but I don't know if he was using bloodhound's step to avoid the worst of it but I didn't once manage to inflict scarlet rot on him. So if anyone is planning something similar, have a back up just in case.

                                You can see all the thumbs downers on specific comments, those players condone this kind of maidenless behavior in pvp. He's worth minimal runes because he's a completely honorless target. I crouched on his face 50 times then crapped after I finally beat him with this stupid uchi. Modern problems deserve a more modern solution, like rivers, stars, and moon. Hands down biggest POS in the game.

                                  Just hit him with scarlet rot and waited until he died. Pretty easy to dodge him, and he only has one heal so chip damage with ranged made him really easy.

                                    Godskin Peer & Black Flame Tornado. As with all invisible-teleporting-but-holes - it will run itself right into your black flame blender, and get flattened by the final blow, so you can repeat.

                                    Still will need an d ton of FP and some tanky HP unless you're one of those matrix-style-robots that can dodge everything.

                                      Doing a low level/low upgrade run and beat him pretty easily with a +3 Great Stars. The trick was to roll into his attack and then lay into him with wild strikes until he steps away. He'd occasionally hit me with a followup but wouldn't stagger me, and the trades were quite favorable in the long run as he often didn't even get the second swing. Don't bother with the R2 followup, just let the first few swings work him.

                                      • Crucible incantations worked smooth against him, but you need at least 40 vigor and 55+ poise, which you can achieve with crucible armor full set and also get the bonus for those incantations, also used a twin blade with storm assault, fancy fight indeed

                                          Was stuck on this try-finger-but-hole for a bit (2nd toughest for me after gargoyle duo), followed advice below about using shield and guard counter on Junos R1 attacks and paired it with bleed urumi and bloodhound step to move out of range of his other attacks, took a lil patience but he didn’t get 1 hit in

                                            He has input reading and uses the bloodhound’s step the moment you attack. A good strategy is doing a heavy attack or an AOW with a somewhat long windup (impaling thrust works great) so if he dodges towards you your attack will connect immediately after the iframes expire and before he can attack.

                                                    Gotta respect this guy for using bloodhound’s step, not abusing it. He uses it to escape tough scenarios, which is exactly what was intended of this ability. It took me only a few attempts to kill him, but the bloodhound’s step was never spammed more than like, twice in quick succession. People who have used this ability throughout the game should follow the example of our Knight of Blood here, if they don’t already.

Juno is pretty easy to shield turtle, and once you see scarlet rot trigger, you run behind the pillar to the right and hide on the rocks with your shield up. Once rot wears off poke him until it’s back, hide a second time, win.

                                                                After many tries I found this way to be pretty effective: First, craft poison darts and a fetid pot (or poison pot) and have something like glintblade phalanx.
                                                                When the fight begins and Juno greets you, first take your wonderous physic and cast glintblade phalanx, then throw several of the poison darts. As he is still greeting you he won't dodge them, and he will become poisoned. Around this time, he will charge and the first glintblades will strike. Now you should avoid him and repeatedly re-cast glintblade phalanx when you have enough distance. (To gain more distance, you can hop on the boulder to the left side of the arena and hop of, the boulder will slow him down and buy you some time) After a while, the poison darts will stop inflicting damage. This is when you should run to the boulder, and as he tries to get on top of it, when you see the chance, throw the fetid pot (as you only need 1 hit, instead of several with the darts), which whill again poison him. Keep on avoiding him and casting phalanx untill he's dead.

                                                                This worked like a charm for me. My build is almost pure int (lvl 61 int, lvl 97 total), and i had a light-medium load to have more agility.

Watch the bleed bar and try to only GC his R1 attacks - when he hits with both whips, it builds up bleed like crazy and shreds your stamina even with a greatshield. I beat him at level 67 with a +9 weapon using this technique, purely because I wanted to speedrun to him and steal his build.

If you're fond of dragonbreath attacks, its the place to do it so long as you start before he does his first hop up. If he already has, he'll get to you before its ready. Start before that first hop - its really noticeable when he does it - and you can nail him everytime. Moonveil is also incredibly useful against him especially if he does a jump attack as he'll have no defense against it's R2 Skill vertical wave, and the R1 wave also works fairly well against his bloodhound step as he always seems to dodge just inside of where it extends to and gets nicked by it.

                                                                                  chain Giant Hunt until he is dead.
                                                                                  put bleed on the weapon for extra damage on the hemorrhage

                                                                                  *make sure you do Giant Hunt when he is running towards you

                                                                                  • dose the red summon sign for his fight still appear even though i never got his red letter due to the oversight of not turning in previous letters and killing Rykard anyways lol ?

The only relevant talisman I had equipped is stamina regen; magic boosting physick; offhand staff of loss, main hand the renala boss staff +9; 60 int; ~25 mind, only needed 1 mana flask.

Turns out that in the end, he wasn't as insignificant compared to his brother as he thought...

He doesn't just have any BHS, though. He can animation cancel his so you can't even bait an attack and then hit him with the pot to stop his Estus chugging or spells because he will always dodge it. In fact, the pot doesn't work on him even if you do hit him. I forced him to jump up on a little mound there and hit him square mid chest and it went straight through him. I've tried no lock throwing the anti-estus pot at the ground as he dashes to it and it shows the smoke on him then it vanishes. This NPC actually cheats. Best method is spam rotten breath at start and turn on netflix as you run for the next several minutes.

Miyazaki is showing his age and the lack of creativity he has at the bottom of his well. The further we get down the darksouls/er path - the less creative and more annoying the titles get. "difficult" is one thing. This fight is something else. (as a melee character). It's lazy af.

Now that Diallos has died, I remain hesitant still because Juno could be the last blood-line of the House of Hoslow.

                                                                                                        • Was dreading re-fighting this dude after how difficult he was on my first character with light dex weps. I'm using colossal swords this run and had an ez time Giant Hunt spamming him to death lol

But at least there are good ashes of war with good range against him
