During the fight with Jenny you will be mostly relying on the Yrden sign throughout the fight as many of the other signs are useless against Jenny. Generally the best way to go about the first stage of the fight when she is trying to physically attack you is to keep distance and use the Yrden sign when she is far enough away. Once the sign is cast lure her into the trap and allow her to attack, then punish it accordingly. All the while make sure she doesn't hit you too often as she hits hard.

Eventually she will render herself into a form you cannot attack and summon low leveled nightwraiths, once this happens cast the Yrden sign until the gust of smoke she turned into is caught before using Igni. Continue to repeat said tactics until she is slain.

        The subtitles for this video guide are the worst. It is obvious that whoever did the subtitles have never played the game. But he did have a good strategy to beat her.
