EDIT: DP used to not decrease damage.
That being said my favorite approach on that map is Glowing Guardian followed up with extreme Absolution + Enlightenment.
Not entirely foolproof, or at least used to not be, but pretty mandatory.
it really throws a curveball (pun intended) at some of the obvious roflstomp strats.

Which is surprising since of all the vicious scenarios it's the most similar to a standard dungeon (just ramped up a few notches). For the most part anyone who gets past form 1 and form 2 has it made, and that's basically just a two-boss scenario taken to extreme proportions.
That's not to say form 1 and 2 are easy. There's pretty well no such thing as popcorn in Namtar's Lair and this is a dangerous boss with debuffs and enough damage to 1HKO weaker heroes... and due to the trouble leveling up, you are a weaker hero.

Yeah but back then you could res stack and bear mace your way through it. Allthough I see your point.

Dragonshield didn't exist back then, and this was back in the era of permanent resist-down monsters, and the Monk had limited physical item slots so his equipment options were highly limited.
