Cursed Ice freezes through magic armor, largely trivializing this fight. Just make yourself a Curse scroll and cover the room in ice as your first move, ideally while talking to him.

My Geo Wizard in full Contamination armor made lunch meat of this boss (at full power without the candles snuffed out). All the demons he summoned next to himself, plus the 2-3 I teleported into the group, meant that Pyroclastic Eruption overlapped with about 6 target's total. Each boulder hitting for about 2-3.5k. The ranger and warrior cleaned up with a Arrow Spray and Whirlwind, respectively. After one round the Doc only had about 4k HP and zero magic armor left. The minion's caught in the blast were thoroughly dead as well.

My Necromancer killed full power version in 1 turn on classic, Haste + Blood Rain from the support with higer iniative then slammed him with Apotheosis + Inner Demon followed by Blood Storm, Grasp of the Starved then Nether Swap to setup so most of his now dead summons was around him for some Mass Corspe Explosion action = boom over 18194 dmg in 1 turn.

that's not enough even break his armour?

I killed the full power Adramahlihk (without putting out candles) with Ifan (Level 20) as a warrior, using "Bone Cage" and "Overpower" to destroy all his armor.
I just saw that other guys had the same idea - there was no lava around to move to his house and teleport him into lava, so "Bone Cage" and a lot of bodies was just as good, if not better because the bodies were already piled up.

I killed the full power Adramahlihk (without putting out candles) with Ifan as a warrior, using "Bone Cage" and "Overpower" to destroy all his armor.
I used 30 dead bodies found near the "Arx - City Square" waypoint with the "Bone Cage" spell to increase Ifan’s armor to about 19908 points.
It wasn’t a tough fight.
I played at normal difficulty.

You should use the chicken spell with all 4 characters and an extra chicken spell to prevent Adramahlihk from possessing Lohse and ending the game.
If Adramahlihk runs away from your characters while he is in chicken form, you can use "Cloak and Dagger" with the next character that will turn him to chicken the next time his current Chicken status expires.
Your characters have to be close to him in order to turn him into a chicken.

To prevent him from moving while in chicken form, which can be annoying, use Entangle on him.
You can use the "Worm Tremor" spell with the Torturer Talent on your character(/some characters) in order to Entangle him even if he has a lot of magic armor left.

Don’t use knockdown on Adramahlihk because he will receive about 1000 armor points after he gets up from a knockdown and you can’t use fast enough another incapacitating spell on him.
(One character used "Ethereal Storm" to cover the fight scene and gave my party members some healing - but it was not vital. You can charm the Nemesis demons that accompany Adramahlihk.)

I killed all the nurses before attacking Adramahlihk because they are just annoying and die fast - I don’t know if it would make much of a difference - by teleporting them, turning them to chickens and bribing them with money to prevent fighting near Adramahlihk.
Before the fight, I also gave Lohse’s blood to Adramahlihk after making a pact with him and stole back the blood vial and other stuff with Sebille, just for some XP points.

I used 30 dead bodies found near the "Arx - City Square" waypoint with the "Bone Cage" spell to increase Ifan’s armor to about 19908 points.
Adramahlihk (aka the Doctor) has about 11120 armor points.

If you think that teleporting before a fight is cheating, you can teleport the 30 dead bodies from the waypoint all the way inside his house, but it’s WAY too slow.
Instead, just bundle up the 30 dead bodies near your character while he is in the Arx City Square, that has the "Overpower" skill and make him use "Bone Cage" just after Lohse attacks the Doctor and start a fight.
("Bone Cage" has a wide are of Area of Effect so you don't have to arrange the bodies too much).

You can also use the 30 bodies and "Bone Cage" on another character to increase it’s armor and then teleport to Lohse and the Doctor for the fight, but is not necessary.

Don’t use Overpower while Adramahlihk is in human form because after he transforms into a monster, his armor, magic armor, and health reset to full.
Overpower him after he gets uglier.

I attacked the Doctor (aka Adramahlihk) with Lohse and then I teleported Ifan, that had an armor of 19908 points, and the other 2 characters near Lohse and wiped the floor Adramahlihk.

I remember killing him on Tactician at full power, Lohse main character. And I clearly remember, that chicken was not an option, because he basically casted his possession **** at the start, and there was no way to counter that. I just assumed it was scripted. So the main difficulty was not just to kill this guy, but to kill him VERY fast (in like 3 turns or something). So I just kept Lohse (as a frost lightning mage) AOE stunning and freezing everyone, including the docta, and everyone else was pumping him like crazy.
Definitely the hardest fight of the game (with Oil Rig in Blackpits being the close second), but only because of the time gate restriction.
By Anonymous
Well this is how we killed it with hardest mode + no candle snuffing:

1) while Lohse is speaking, get another volunteer char (aka terrorist) right next to Adra and start listening in on the convo (this will make time stop for that char). Optional: cast "Living on the Edge" on him to keep him alive
2) cast as many "Flaming Crescendo"s you can on our terrorist buddy -- since time is stopped, you can stack infinitely
3) End convo with Lohse to have him attack you -> instant death. flames coming from laptop, worth it ^^

Living on the edge doesn't work for me, the character just dies while living on the edge buff is still on, very disappointing lol has to be a bug

Dude that is such a big brain tactic, I just did it with Fane and Red and left everyone outside, BIG BOOM.
