It may be cheap, but big bonk slams are the best way to kill
Okay I killed her using the lure to victor's stone and push to the ocean- method but in my foolishness (and perhaps out of habit for DS1 and fap- ring) I quit out to make her loot spawn and only afterwards read that it can make her loot not spawn and disappear completely.
Luckily even if this guide warned about it, her (minus saint's set) had spawned where she usually is. Was a huge relief because I thought I messed up bad because I didn't read properly x)
