Anything you can't stab - run away! :-)

That said - it's a bit easier if you go Spriggan I think, as they're faster and allow you get out of harms way faster.

Some great advice here. I'd add to that: Always have an escape plan (scroll/wand of teleport, potion of speed), and execute it when you get near or below 50% health. For me, Potions of health are the last, last resort (usually). You drink it, it swings again and hits, you're gained nothing but moved...
