The boss was hard

Hey I just finished this dmod (World of DinkC), but I admit that I had to cheat to be able to beat the boss (by editing my strength, magic and defense in the savegame with a hex editor).

Am I the only one who had trouble with the boss?

My stats at the end were 44 strength (with light sword), 14 def and 20 magic. The good spell still took very long to reload, and that's what caused the problem. The throwing axes didn't do any damage, and hitting with the lightsword is very risky because then he hits you back. He also runs so fast, that it's impossible to aim the fire spell at him without being hit by him.

All that made it impossible for me to kill him.

Were my stats too low? Is there maybe a strategy I missed?


P.S. My inventory was full of potions. They didn't help.

Well, I did beat him without cheating, though it took me a few times and all potions...

I don't know my stats anymore, and my savegames and installed dmods were deleted with my last computer re-install, so I can't help there.

I object 
The trick was to run from the boss and fire hellfire at him, if I'm not mistaken. Which is tricky since the boss is really quick, it took me quite some tries too. (though I didn't have my inventory full of potions, just roughly half of it)

My stats where 42/20/18 (my savegame confirms)

I thought it was rather easy. Although I must admit I think that of all the D-Mods. That's why The Treasure Battles is so.... ?hard? .
