Killing Him Is Fine If You Only Want The Equipment

Instead of completing his questline, you can get the same equipment by simply killing him. If you're only after the equipment, there's no need to continue the quest; simply kill him as soon as you see him.

Great Rune Adds A New Ending

When the final boss is defeated, a part of the ending will change if you have obtained the Mending Rune of the Fell Curse, which can be obtained by progressing to the end of the Dung Eater questline. If you want to get all endings, you must progress through the Dung Eater questline.
