I don't think anyone has mentioned not fighting him as a strategy yet. Of course, if he's already found you, then it might be a bit difficult to manage. For Mages and Priests, detection can help avoid that. Other classes might not have the sp available for that. If you don't have useful detection, then stealth can often help you avoid a fight.

The main reason I mention this is that while many early uniques are fight-able with experience and skill (Bullroarer, for example, is nasty, but ?Phase and oil takes him down pretty well), the main experience and skill to learn is that not everything is there to be fought, and you should always be able to run away, since eventually you will have to. Frequently.

Good point I guess, but he did hit first. Now that I am delving even deeper I should play a little more carefully and not just confront everyone.

Re Bullroarer: oil, ? phase door, and ! heroism. For early uniques especially, buffing can make a huge difference for classes with poor melee skills.
