Good luck buddy.
I'm lucky I got the Vampire when his mission was at The Crypt...
So far, I've only done VHoS with a Bear Mace Sorcerer and the old Mana Leak + HALPMEH Wizard (don't remember which race).
I beat the new VHoS with:
Elf Sorcerer w/ Crystal Ball and finding BLUDPOWA and JJ
Elf Wizard w/ Crystal Ball and finding BLUDPOWA and JJ
Elf Assassin w/ Crystal Ball and finding BLUDPOWA and JJ
Also, make sure to prep Smuggler's Den and Apothecary. I only took the Knockback Mace on the Sorcerer, since you're not meleeing with the other classes. The item you want to find the most in a shop is Fireheart. Any other purchases should be on potions (Schadenfreude) or items that help you level faster (e.g. Fine Sword). Battlemage Ring is probably really good too, but I don't have it unlocked in my profile.
Notice a theme? Basically abuse Burning until you get to level 7, then use your health/mana pool to start on Indomitable. Then use Chaos Avatar to get a free level up and full heal. Then abuse BLUDPOWA to slowly whittle away the Death Protections. One very nice trick is that if he's at 1 health and has burning, killing a monster will cause the burning to damage him and remove a level of death protection! You should be able to beat Indomitable with minimal potion use, as long as you didn't use too much space exploring. If you have a full load of potions, BlahBlah shouldn't be too bad.
Additional Class Specific Notes:
Sorcerer - Every so often your healing will get you high enough to take a hit from Indomitable. Do it! If you have the knockback prep, you'll take out 3 levels of death protection! (Melee, Mana Shield, Knockback). Try to knock him back into a monster so that he won't go anywhere.
Assassin - Get 3 stacks of Corrosion on Indomitable. This way you can start BLUDPOWA fireballing him at level 7 (28 fireball damage + 3 corrosion = 30 regen + 1 remaining). This lets you use Swift Hands to work your way up to 8 while fighting him. Then use Chaos Avatar to go to 9 or even 10 if you're on a roll!
Wizard - The hardest of three, due to lack of both Mana Shield+Healing and Swift Hands. Still easier than any other class though (even Bloodmage).
