When fighting him, it is beneficial to have armour that gives good magic protection such as leather, dragonhide or a mage robe; alternatively, the Protect from Magic prayer will prevent him from harming the player.
Note: If you take too long to defeat him, the message "The priest seems to have recovered from the Devourer's spell" will appear, and you will have to exit the door and re-enter to face him again with full Hitpoints. (Beware—do not exit the door, or you'll have to start the whole process over again).
