Strategy 1 (Plunging Attack)

This strategy is quite easy. You'll need light fire resistance equipment but make sure you are still able to roll. The weapon doesn't really matter as long as it deals good damage. When the Wyvern arrives, don't even bother attacking it, just go past it and to the left. There will be a path. Just follow the path and the ladders, ignore the enemies, and finally go up to a specific ledge above the wyvern's head. When he is done breathing fire, he will lower his head. Just jump and press R1/RB and victory will be yours. This strategy is super easy but it doesn't include the satisfaction of beating a Wyvern with a bow. Still counts!

Strategy 2 (Directly underneath)

Stand directly under the Wyvern so that you are targeted and facing the dragon's stomach. If positioned correctly, the boss will only attack with blockable foot-stomps and occasionally fly overhead for a fire breath below. Always run away from where you were facing the boss, and not towards, and the fire shouldn't hit you. Hurl Lightning Spears or any damage spell in general, or melee attack it's legs whenever possible, rinse and repeat. (Completed with Great Lightning Spears for 202 damage Per shot and 10 Ashen Flasks). 

Strategy 3 (Jumping Attack)

This strategy uses jumping/plunging attack, but quicker than Strategy 1. When you enter the boss area, run straight and you  can see a bell. Stand on the right of the bell, wait for the Ancient Wyvern to lower his head and breath fire, then do a jumping attack. This strategy must be done quick, or the dragon will move forward, which makes you have to go back to Strategy 1.
