Similar to Pria the Penitent.
Keep a sharp eye on the Riposting Stance icon and back off when it phases in.
I toggled Pet Regroup, sneaked in a nuke or two each attack phase and gave pet an Aegis rune each down phase.
Killed her first time but pet regularly got dangerously low on health.

Thorn Wilting helps

Beat with tier 2-3 group only TBS equipped tri-comped 105 Paladin, 105 shaman, 105 druid and mercenaries. One buff that helped a lot was the shaman's buff, Thorn Wilting, which prevented the damage shield from affecting the Paladin. It did work on the rogue mercenaries too but keep in mind anything like a shaman's spirit of panther line spell combat procs will be reflected during that stance. Only one died near 20%ish. For a first try, that went well, got breastplate, augment. Second try, breastplate, mask. I can also confirm a 3rd location for the named is pos 1131, neg 751, pos 46, which is where another "a warleader follower" is, outside the southeast alcove on the first floor.

Key to winning

The real key to winning this, imo, is to have everyone watch for the buff Riposting Stance. As soon as she casts it on herself, shut attack off (including the tank), stop casting spells, and have the tank spam non-damaging aggro to hold her in place and keep her off the healer. Ride out the 18 seconds or so it lasts, then deal as much damage as you can till she casts it again.

You can do similar things with a pet tank, You just need to have the pet "guard" instead of "follow" so it doesn't return to the owner while on hold for the duration of the spell, then tell it to attack again till the next cast.

Next start with Group Geared instead of Raid Geared:

Tank Group: War 104 (T1/2 TDS), Dru 105, Enc 105, 2x Merc Healer, 1x Merc Caster
Support Group: Bst 104, Mag 102 + Air Pet, 2x Merc Healer

Tank started with Fortitude Disc (incl. No time to bleed, Commanding Voice and Field Guardian), changed to Last Standing Disc and had to switch to Defensive Proficiency because of Group missing a bit DPS. Druid spam-healed always when Mob had his terrible DS-Buff active. At about 16% (happened twice) the tank goes down and the Mage Pet hold aggro for the rest of the fight while Mage and Druid spam-healed very hard to keep pet alive. The usual debuffs (slow/tash/mala) and the rest is history.

DPS: only attack as long as the DS-Buff of Mob is inactive, else let the pets do their work.

Dropped the Face-Mask and second time Tunic and the Aug. Happy Warrior and happy Enchanter ;)

Dru/Clr/Rng/MercHeal/Caster-Kombo at lvl 105 and raid-equipped wiped twice in a row before us.
Key is to have a stable tank which need spam healing when the DS of the Mob is active.
Real Cleric: Group-Heal-Spams, Real Tank: Discs and Spam-Heals on him.

Tactics on a mob which is immune to melee and caster?

- Mage Pet stripped from Haste/Proc buffs as Tank
- Dru/Enc with DoTs as DPS
- Enc for Eradicate Magic
- 3x Healer Mercs
- started from other side of the room (to avoid 100k AE)

- Sent pet in with the usual Buffs (Groundstance, Fortify Companion)
- Enc: Tash/Slow sticked well
- Mob casted DS
- Enc tried to "Eradicate" the DS

- Pet got eaten in seconds after the Riposting Stance was active
- Reposting Stance was not deletable by "Eradicate Magic"
- somehow 3 merc healers are too dumb to heal a pet
