=== '''Fighting Strategies''' ===
I prefer using the View Interface . This allows one to back up while fighting, which prevents one from being hit at all. What happens is I swing, usually hit the monster, and back up before the monster has a chance to attack. By the time they have caught up to me, I can swing again, back up...etc. Very handy. Just make sure you have enough room (small rooms can prevent this tactic) and don't step off a large drop. (I can see me doing this: "Ah-ha. ..I have you noo...ooo...www.....splat").
The spells ''Spell Absorption'' and ''Spell Reflection'' can make one virtually indestructable. Note that spell absorption can also absorb your own spells. Handy for taking out that monster at really close range with fireballs or whatnot.
