Important resistances:

Talos using Chain Swing

Talos will never stop trying to reach melee range, however if you are a ranged character he will spend most of his time casting Flame Thrower while chasing you as it has a 1 second cooldown. Thus you should mainly focus on either dodging the flames or stacking Fire Resistance. If you are a melee character you should also try to stack Fire Resistance but Talos will cast Flame Thrower only every 5 seconds. At melee range, Talos will Stomp every 6 seconds dealing a lot of Lightning Damage, if you are fast enough you can and should try to run away when you see him lifting his right leg. Without a lot of Health and High Resistances most of his spells are likely to one shot you.
