The blue circle debuff is such that if you are debuffed and are hit by the bosses attack then everybody in line of sight to you also take severe damage.
Our counter was to set up cover shields diagonally on platforms we were fighting on and when someone gets debuffed they immediately ran and crouched down behind a cover shield on the opposite side to the boss.
This works most of the time except when she decides to get stuck on the roof and can fire down on the debuffed person regardless of cover shield, in this case the debuffed person just has to run as far away from the boss as they can and hope she decides to target someone closer.
Ah... so it doesn't actually have anything to do with what
do once getting passed the death ball (besides trying to break LoS). Thanks.
