Oh come on man this quest is bull****! Her supernova spawns the entire arena making it impossible to get away and the damage is enough to one-shot you on the spot everytime even with top gear, the fire traces she leaves behind take forever to leave and the fire they produce even BLOCKS bowgun bullets and arrows to boot!? That's not even unfair at this point! That's Just bull****!

There are many many many tools at your disposal to prepare for Lunastra's Supernova. Try mixing and matching these options: Quick Sheath Skill, Recovery Up Skill, Recovery Speed Skill, Astera Jerky, Fireproof Mantle, Rocksteady Mantle, Vitality Mantle, Tool Specialist Skill, Wind Resistance Skill, a Weapon that deals Dragon Damage, Elderseal Boost Skill, Fire Resist Skill, Guard/Guard Up Skill, Crystalburst to interrupt her chargeup phases, paying attention to positioning and rage-status. If you are only thinking about dealing damage when facing Elder Dragons, you'll often have a hard time. But yeah I agree that not being able to fire projectiles through the flare-ups is crap.
Had to set aside the Lance for this one sadly. Picked up HBG, blew her *****ing face off with Magda Gemitus II, Dober/Xeno/Xeno/Xeno/Kirin armor, all Beta, with 2x Attack, 2x Maintenance, 2x Fire Res, and 3x Steadfast, with Artillery III Charm, and Recoil/Recoil/Shield mods. Bring mega drugs, astera jerky, cool drink, vitality/fireproof mantles, nutrients and steaks (for future deaths in case), blastnuts/bomberries + level 3 gunpowder and level 1 and 3 Cluster and Sticky ammo for max damage + stun. Be sure to have Power and Armor Talons/Charms for more damage and survivability, just in case. Best of luck to anyone else hunting this god-forsaken quest solo. I can only wish you the best of luck. Oh, and use the Dragonator for god's sake, it's like 1000 free damage.
Oh, and I must insist, BRING THE FIREPROOF MANTLE FOR GOD'S SAKE. It's one hell of a lifesaver and allows you to tank the supernova without dying, a must-have for this awful quest.

Magda Gemitus FTW!
Give her the hammer. Cut her out at the legs. No one will be disappointed.
