If no one has gotten to you yet, I'll gift you some abyssinal armor when I get on next. Will also take your pawn out for a spin.
Just as a tip, if you're a sorc, you should be no where near close to things to get hit. You can move around while charging HFB. Hire a fighter pawn and have them face tank for you. In those areas with the courtyard, I recommend standing on the ledge upstairs and casting high maelstrom. Once you get the hang of BBi, you mostly won't take damage as a sorc. But you will get one shot if you don't pay attention.
