Just beat her RL1 solo. It took me days and days and DAYS of attempts but I finally did it. I must have died what seemed like 200 times at least (could be more).
Used cold uchi, blue gold kite shield, radagons soreseal, ritual shield, ritual sword, and Dragoncrest Greatshield. Could not figure out how to get the parry timing down for some of her attacks so I just resorted to plain dodging and shielding as a backup for when I missed a dodge.
Ritual shield + dragoncrest ensures that most of her attacks in phase 1 won’t insta-kill you on RL1. The exceptions are her thrust, grab, uppercut, charge (all of which are pretty straightforward to dodge and leave big windows to attack her) and of course waterfowl dance.
Phase 2 more of her attacks will insta-kill but saving your physick with opaline hardtear in it for the second half of the fight helps make some of the attacks not insta-kill again.
Used bloodhounds step to dodge waterfowl dance. Even after the nerf of Bloodhounds step I couldn’t find a better solution to this attack. I found the most consistent way to dodge was to start running away immediately and then the minute she hits the ground for her first wave of strikes you use bloodhounds step. This will make it so the second wave goes off right in front of you but does not hit you. Dodge through the 3rd one. And then just mostly just stand in place for the last few (strafe a little bit away from her but no dodging or anything like that). This pretty consistently worked for me no matter how close I was to her when she started the attack.
