Don't find Hydras, if you can avoid them. They drop only gold and they can destroy your inventory plus, you use up your healing potions.

Ran into two uniques together, had to use my emergency mushrooms and most of the remaining heal potions and speed - for almost no loot.

To some extent. The odds of being destroyed go up with damage to the player, either 1% for low damage, 2% for moderate damage, and 3% for high damage. For the biggest breathers, however, even 1/9 damage counts as high damage. The thing to do is not melee monsters with a lot of elemental blows (various jellies, colbran, Pazuzu, etc.)

Many uniques come in pairs. If you can't handle them, teleport (or Portal) away. You might be able to kill them with elemental rings and dragon armor, escaping to recharge in between attacks. But a better solution is to wait until you have a better weapon and/or bow.

Are there unlimited mob respawns? I've killed hundreds of giant fruit flies and they are still coming.

Yes. Just close the door behind you and leave.

I found a 'ring of lightning' - it says it has 'lightning resist' but then says 'you cannot be harmed by lightning'. That sounds like immunity?

I think it says something like "cannot be harmed by lightning" or "it cannot be harmed by lightning"; meaning that specific item is immune to lightning, but that quality doesn't extend to you or to any other items you carry.

Gotcha. You're right, it didn't say 'you'.
