Good thing he has the defense spell....
Oh and it had summoned at least three other heresiarchs.
I bet it's near impossible to nail it with a fighter or a cleric on hardest skill level.
I was able to find an EXTREMELY easy (but patience consuming) way to destry a Heresiarch with any character without having to use mana, quartz flasks, or ANYTHING else but your 1rst weapon months ago.

first run in front of the Heresiarch, and taunt him to follow you, and run outside.
Run towards your right, where the path leading down to the courtyard on the other side of the level. Make sure Heresiarch's on your Tail! Run into the left corner of the room (next to the staircase) and wait for him to reach your position. Once he's there, Jump down into the staircase. Go up just enough so you can hit him with your first weapon from down there, but he can't hit you. Then, just keep repeatedly hitting him. Eventually, once he tries to form dark bishops, you'll notice that they don't fully spawn, and the Heresiarch is still alone. Don't ask why that is, Just be Thankful for it! Just keep patiently striking him until he eventually gets destroyed. He might manage to spawn 1 or 2 Disciples, but that's usually about it.
I've only tried this with the cleric, I don't know how the mage will work out, since his projectiles impact the wall.
If it doesn't work, the joke's on you, 'cuz it's a Lot easier to kill him with a fighter or a cleric after all [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]
If you REALLY want it, I could tell you my pattented strategy for the Heresiarch in gibbet [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
