There are a couple early-midgame uniques to avoid at all costs. Gorlim is one; the other is Kavlax, who breathes gravity way more often than seems reasonable by chance. If you aren't prepared for this, it will leave you at 1/4 of his speed, which is pretty much fatal.

Also: don't melee monsters that can disenchant your weapon or especially your dwarven shield or gloves of power. He will leave you with much less damage at the end of the fight. If you want to mess around with gorlim, use branded ammo. (For Kavlax, you want slay dragon ammo; those also work well against Smaug, Itangast, and Scatha .)

Speaking of Scatha, he needs to breathe ice, too.
