Prepare the arena
The boss does not have a large aggro radius. You can try to prepare the arena around it. Fill up holes, not with bridge, but with ground, as the boss can destroy bridges by jumping.
Optional: Add turrets
Turrets can be used to add additional damage if you have excess materials. Circle the arena with turrets.
Immunity to burning

Destroy molten projectiles as quickly as you can
