Using magic is not recommended when fighting Kaine as she has high resistance against them. A good strategy to use against her during the first phase of the fight is to stay close to her while running to her side and bait her into throwing out attacks. This will cause her to mostly do her triple kicks and quadruple slash attacks which do not have good tracking and should miss you most of the time. When she whiffs, attack her before she recovers and start running to her side again.
It is not recommended to create too much distance from Kaine as she will constantly chase you down. She will also throw out her dashing thrust attack which comes out fairly quickly if you are too far away.
She will eventually start her second phase when you have lowered her health. She will now start to shoot projectiles from her sword from afar which are not too difficult to dodge if you move sideways. As with the first phase, bait her into attacking first by constantly moving to her side and attack when she is open. When her HP reaches about 25%, the battle will end.
