    Sadly you can't summon help for that boss. Get a high damaging weapon and you can kill him fast. Dodging his attacks is kind of difficult if you're not an experienced player, but you could use a good shield and block all his attacks. Be careful with lighting though, it does high damage even if you block it. The Sanctuary Guardian has pretty low defenses/health so it's easy to kill him with a good weapon.

    If you're having troubles with that boss and at that level best you can do it's get better equipment.

    The Rite of Kindling also helps if you don't have it yet.

    use light armor for light rolls

    YOU DONT WANT HEAVY ARMOR HERE.

    Great combustion helps alot (he is weak to fire)

    and constantly stay on the move (he only goes into melee for a 4 hit combo attack nothing else)

    roll the big electric balls and his wind press wave thing

    Try the crystal shield if you're suffering from lightning damage.
    It's totally possible with heavy armor, but it requires more timing on your dodges and some backstepping to substitute a fast roll.

    Don't be afraid to wear no armor at all. It makes his attacks really easy to dodge if you get a feel for the timing and signals.. plus the ranges. With a good shield and enough flasks you can beat him with pure pyromancy if it's strong enough.

    He is surprisingly easy as long as you are light on your feet and know his patterns. Lightning plate ring [right name?] can help too.

    One thing is to stay relatively close and generally away from his back half if possible. Stay away from his tail unless you want a certain something. When he does his barking type attack side-dodge and from close enough then he has quite a long pause just sitting there. That alone is a big chance to deal damage of any sort.

    One other thing. Stay at mid range and remember his lightning attacks linger on the floor a little. Even being stunned for a second is a second too long. If you take your time and are patient this fight is almost guaranteed, well then again it sort of goes with all bosses.

    Another member here gave some good advice on this fight, I thought: the Wolf Ring. If you go light armor/low poise give it a try, that way he won't be able to stunlock you with his lighting.

    Everyone recommends dodging his wind attack, but I find it better to tank it, as it only staggers...it deals no hp damage and no stamina damage (if you don't block it). After you get hit by this attack and you are near him, he will charge at you, which is easily dodged to the side, and then you can get some free hits on his tail, possibly cutting it off since it has low hp.

    So instead of dodging and getting a free shot on him you tank it, bait his next attack, then dodge, and that gives you a clear tail shot, is that right? Assuming you're close to him does it work every time?

    Yes, when you get hit by the wind you get staggered, then he immediatly lowers his head (the tell for the charge attack). After this charge is dodged he stays still for some moments with his tail lowered, it's the same as dodging his flying dive attack. You just have to be careful with the distance because if you are too far away when you get hit by the wind he may begin casting his lightning ball attack instead of the charge.

    I'm gonna give that a go. Pretty counter-intuitive to stand there during his long wind up without even raising my shield, but I'm gonna try it. I love boss tails. They keep the fights interesting. SG's tail doesn't have much hp, but it's still better than just whacking at him till he's dead.

    Yes you can, or at least I've seen summon signs there, and I was able to put a sign down myself.

    I tank it with shield of Artorias and BKS. It was easy just stay close. It uses lightining only from distance. Did any one try poison or toxin?
