Not really. He shoots the beam about every 16 seconds, so I think about 1-2 pots is enough. I might try killing him today with the prayer. Of course he might have a million HP:s and a regeneration rate of 10 hp's per second. well i tried it and he does have a lot of hp... also the fact that i dont know of a safe spot for bork he kept hitting me. i brought like 15 sara brews, the rest pray pots and a tort full of pray pots while i deflected magic and did the drain attack on bork thing while wearing guthans+dragonfire but he still would hit me and i ran out of food before the mage dude lost even a 1/4 of health...im at 93 def so idk, maybe taking a unicorn or another healer familiar would be better?
