Keep searching the chests until you have around 25 arrows. If you do not receive 25 arrows after checking all chests, you can change world to reset the chests.

Turn on Protect from magic and range him with the Ice arrows.

    Note: If you do not kill him fast enough, he will cease the battle telling you to come back. When this happens, simply try to open the door again.
