Strategy

This boss has a considerable amount of staying power, so it is recommended you play a class that lasts long. The 4 main classes are Bloodmages, because of the considerable amount of fireballs you can throw, Monks, because their resistances and their considerable regen-fighting capabilities, Paladins, because Glyph: HALPMEH HALPMEH and resistances are a great counteraction to low damage, and Sorcerers, because the Class trait: MANA SHIELD MANA SHIELD takes out an additional layer of death protection. Also, make sure not to incur any weakening and lower resist, if it matters.

If you play a Class: Bloodmage Bloodmage use your fireballs to kill things above your level and bring a battle mage ring or burning heart so you can regen fight monsters. When you get to the boss, use all your fireballs until you run out of mana. Then, turn on Glyph: BLUDTUPOWA BLUDTUPOWA and reveal 3 tiles, bringing the boss to 31 HP. If you are at least LV7 you should deal 35 damage, removing another layer of death protection. When you run out of tiles use your mana potions, blood pools, and health potions to finish him off.

If you are playing a Class: Monk Monk, you should be regen fighting sorcerers and wraiths a few levels above you. You shouldn't do this too much because you need to save enough tiles to out regen the boss. Use God: Taurog Taurog, and avoid weakening or lower resists. When you reach the boss begin fighting until you cannot, then reveal tiles till your HP is above 31. Once your HP is high enough, assuming you deal enough damage, you should be able to take off another layer of death protection. Use God boon: Unstoppable Fury Unstoppable Fury and health potions to try to outlast him once you run out of tiles.

If you play a Class: Paladin Paladin, try to maximize out your resistances so Glyph: HALPMEH HALPMEH will be most effective. Avoid fighting wraiths, illusions, and steel golems, as the mana burn lower resists, and weakening can be crippling. When you cannot gain any more levels begin fighting the boss, but make sure there are tiles left to regen fight. When you fight the boss, get him as low as possible, then explore three tiles. Then, use HALPMEH and tank as many hits as you can. Then continue repeating this until you run tiles. Then use all other resources to outlast the boss.

If you are playing a Class: Sorcerer Sorcerer, use the your normal sorcerer strategy. Just make sure you don't get an untimely mana burn or any weakening. The Class trait: MANA SHIELD MANA SHIELD takes out 2 death protections, so you should have no problem out lasting the boss.
