I'm planning to attempt it. I saw a video where someone did it using a Mechanical Minecart and the SDMG with Chlorophyte bullets, so I think I'll go with that. I'm also planning to use Hallowed Armor, a Brain of Confusion, and Master Ninja Gear for their abilities to dodge attacks.

If anyone here has beaten her during the day, what strategies did you use?

I've beaten her 3 times during the day in classic mode. I can't beat her on any higher difficulty.

I just dodged her attacks flying around in my mount until she died, while using the Zenith.

I'm not super-confident in my ability to dodge. >.>

There is not really an easy way of dealing with a boss that moves alot, while also having one-hit-kill moves.

Once you learn the attacks and how they work, it will get easier. It's all trial and error.

The game hasn't been out that long, I'm not even in hardmode yet because I'm playing with a friend.

Managed to do it with my method in the OP. Actually wasn't too hard.

Empress of light's stuff is everywhere, but not all of it is aimed towards you.

she also has a set pattern, making it a bit easier to predict what she does.

you'll want an aerial mount for this though

She was impossible at first, but she has a set pattern that keeps looping. She isn't erratic like other bosses. This makes her one of the easiest boss fight to do without getting hit. I've now beaten her during daytime in my master hardcore playthrough (that character is now dead, but that happened after the moonlord, so I consider that playthrough a victory). Fishron wings and a dash gives me enough mobility to dodge everything. It's a great idea to use Hallowed armor since the set bonus is incredibly helpful to counter the one-hit KO.
