If you survived two breaths, you should have well known that it might breathe a third time. Why didn't you heal, or escape?

The Tarrasque is very dangerous, yes. I can even see an argument for calling it overpowered. But that doesn't mean it should be weakened. The dungeon needs scary monsters that can kill you.

It is definitely possible to kill it without any defenses beyond basic fire/cold resist, but unless you have a truly overpowered offense (such as an oldschool ranger with >800 damage/turn), I wouldn't recommend it. You'd spend far too many healing potions. Double resist makes it a lot more feasible -- coincidentally, the best Tarrasque killers are priests, since they have both a spell to give double resist for fire/cold, and cheap 0%-failure-rate healing spells.
