Daichi's advice was really great but... since I play with japnese audio, what lines will she be using for her attacks instead?
also, I doubt I can beat her as I am now (since i'm only a 55/30+ Bouncer/Gunner, that mainly uses Soaring Blades), but any advice aimed towards Soaring Blade- users
I prob won't be able to defeat her till after I switch to Bouncer/Etoile, but hey, doesn't hurt to at least get knowledge ouo/
Sorry though can't help with the Japanese since I haven't played it, but I'm under the assumption each audio tell is different; you may just have to learn a few key phrases even without the meaning and learn to react based on it. If you find yourself a little too panicked to do it in game you could maybe try watching videos to memorize the audio cues.
As for level... idk, maybe some one who's a literal god at the game could beat her under level 75, with a wep lower than 13*'s (unless maybe hero?)... but that definitely isn't me. I'd focus on leveling first, and be sure to get sub up.
@ the people saying it's literally impossible I found a video that will answer all your responses in relation to the fight being unfair and needs to be changed especially the final message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khBp_FCWA6k
If you can beat Genichiro Ashina in Sekiro, a relatively early boss; you can beat Phaleg.
To address specific concerns:

Theres clearly some cheat or people are stomping her with max geared level 90 characters, to a level 80 character with a nemesis weapon and ivdla units its a 100% un winnable battle. some of her attacks WILL HIT YOU no matter what, I dont care if you are the god of gaming, latency is a thing.
No cheat, your level doesn't affect this fight as much as the others, This isn't like episode 3 where we were underleveled and AIS's stats directly scales with your level. Being 90 doesn't make a big difference either, in fact 75 is realistically all you need for a well rounded functional build, and going 80 from there only substantially gives "High level bonus" skill for the free 5% dmg. Going 90 beyond that offers more variability in choice but is not substantial enough to carry anyone. Also keep in mind prior to your post Everyone posting was 80 or under, and probably using a nemesis, and units worse than ivl. Also damage only matters for S-rank. But pretty much anyone with a +35 Nemesis for that sweet 17% should be able to clear it.
also the ones that always hit always stunlock til you die. This isn't a fair fight, or one you can win on level.
There are none that "always hit" unless Maybe if you are a caster with mirage, and no short mirage ring. I could see how her triple dash could kill you, as she'd land her attack as soon as you finish; but that's reasonably fixed. Other than that EVERYTHING is avoidable, if not 0 damage runs wouldn't exist... and they do.
FYI I do not suck. I know how to read her moves, I am often the only one who doesn't die on XH dragon UQs, Red and Black.
This is irrelevant, and if you do or if you don't is reasonably up for debate. It's a bit subjective; I think it still remains in question if "someone can be incapable of beating Phaleg but not suck", and personally I'd argue yes, someone can be incapable of defeating her and not suck. But I'm sure the more "elite" side of the community may draw a different consensus.
Personally my criteria of "suckage" is usually when ignorant people, instead of looking for knowledge and trying to understand, complain about something being unfair, and accusing those capable of somehow exploiting or cheating; as an attempt to diminish their own lack of accomplishment and to hide their own ineptitude... Good thing no one here is like that.
But regarding dragon, one thing does not equate to the other, and frankly Black dragon is easier than Phaleg for several reasons, including the nature of his attacks; I can no damage black dragon easier than I can no damage phaleg, and often I'm the one holding the aggro (cuz ilbarta is insane). Plus Black dragon is over all more forgiving going for the S-rank considering there is no heal nerf. Also it's very easy to get carried through dragon while simply staying alive, not that I'm accusing you of such. However, if you're not killing phaleg I also doubt you have the DPS to hold aggro through most of the fight; meaning you might get more leeway than you realize.
When I say this fight is unfair and rigged, I am saying it becuase it's unfair and rigged. Maybe if I was level 90 with a maxed out weapon I'd feel differently but this is ep4 content bros. it shouldn't be balanced for level 90.
"I say it is; there for it is." is not sound reasoning and only displays your ignorance, I don't know what you mean by a "maxed out weapon" and if that includes affixes, or if you mean 14* weps that are affixed (considering your criteria is level 90). But all you need is for the nemesis or slave/raven to be 35 and you'd arguably do better damage than most Atlas and Lumiere setups.
