You don't need Pactmaker to beat Bleaty anymore, just knock SMM or low-damage bosses into him and finish him off with Quicksilver potion.
Try to maximize your defenses and pray you don't find Tomithy early. My favorite deity in this situation is Earthmother, specially after the last update (Vine form now adds +4 HP and 1 DR).
I hadn't tried Half-Dragon on Naga City in a while. I had gotten close about 5-6 updates ago, but never quite finished it off. Seeing this post encouraged me to give it a try!
You actually don't even need the Quicksilver Potion. I got Bleaty down to 1 HP and finished him off with a Fireball
Though, to be fair, I did find GG, Pactmaker, and JJ on the top floor. It's hard to get better than that! On the bottom level, I got myself 6 indulgences and converted to Dracul and took a level of Blood Hunger. The indulgences exactly covered drinking my 4 potions and killing Frank and The Tormented One. I unfortunately couldn't quite get enough Piety to take Blood Tithe, so I wasn't able to use the blood pools
