So I thought due to being rusty and having a personal dread of Namtar's lair that might be exagerated. I was amazed it worked, really, and with relatively simple components - there was never a coherent plan, no mad strat, the walled off bonus subdungeon remained untouched (no endiswall), no major damage boosts (+20% from gauntlets, but still). Sure priest in a map with undead, dwarf with preas, all that, but I was thinking "Just one more step and I'll fail" all the way through to the end.
I guess with the right preps (err, any preps), a Dvarwen priest can beat Namtar's lair using rather simple tools.
A special surprise was how good Earthmother worked for me on a purist vicious run in a cramped map with a race and class with little obvious sinergy - entanglement spam, clearances as much for halpmeh after geting mana burned as for clearing the chokey corridors, early WONNAFYT which made me a popcorn bowl I used exclusivly for IMAWAL fodder... Imawal for lvl 10 pre boss fight (no mid fight dings above stairs, lvl 10 then boss, one life saving ding below though).
