Vendrick is found in the Undead Crypt, mid-way through the game. You will find him in the same room as the King's Ring (after the area boss), where he will roam the room. He starts off as non-hostile, but once you deal enough damage to him he will fight back.

Your damage on him is based on the amount of Souls of Giants in your inventory. In order to defeat him (without spending an hour) you must collect some Souls of Giants, five of them returns damage dealt to him to normal.

These can be found at the end of each of the Giant Memories (Orro, Vammar, and Jeigh) which are accessed by using the giant trees in the Forest of Fallen Giants. To enter them you need the Ashen Mist Heart.

Another one can be found in Black Gulch. Drop down further below the door to Darkdiver Grandahl (which is at a drop next to the giant worms), and then kill the Giants. The last one is obtained by defeating the Ancient Dragon in the Dragon Shrine.

Once you have the souls go back to Vendrick and attack him. Her has very easy, slow attacks, however they deal enormous damage. To easily beat him just stay behind him and stab him until he dies. If you die then when you go back he will be hostile.
