Successor of the Claw Strategies 

Strategy Writeup

Two-Handed Sword

For this fight I like to use a Two-Handed Sword (ideally the Zweihander with Fortification), and the Atlas Blood Code. You can follow the Immortal Blade Build for more details.

The strategy is to block her attacks, and then counter attack when you get an opening. She usually hits in two hit combos, and most of her attacks are very well telegraphed making them easy to read. Just block until you feel comfortable you can attack, and then hit once or twice and repeat.

In phase two, it's really the same strategy only you cannot block her teleport backstab ability, so you will need to roll at the last second to avoid it. Some of her attacks will have changed as well, but again they are not difficult to read, and are generally two hit combos.
