I had trouble my first time fighting her back on the 360 (the only playthrough of DS I ever did), dying many many times but I think I've improved somewhat. My history is many playthroughs of Scholar and one of DS3. I'm playing on Switch at the moment, similar loadout as I had before: Two-Handed Gravelord Sword +1 and Power Within pyromancy. I tried to get Maneater Mildred's assistance but I got trounced by the Fire Spray attack. I noticed I was doing great damage anyway even with a summon so I tried my luck. My strategy was buff upon entry, run up and raised shield for the inevitable lava pool attack and two-hand the side and switch back before I run out completely of stamina. But the Gravelord Sword does beeeautiful damage. It's not a long fight this way. About maybe 4 attempts total in the span of 10 minutes. My successful attempt I had to play a bit of keep away to keep my health up. Scary but manageable.
