– Detailed Walkthrough –
Walks-in-Ash gives you a totem which will slow Balreth down. Return to the ritual braziers where you summoned the guardian atronachs in the past to summon them again.
Mavos Siloreth appears and tells you, “Well, I see that my considerable investment in you wasn’t a total waste.” Mavos will then open a portal to Ash Mountain and encourage you to go in to battle Balreth. Mavos will encourage you to defeat Balreth while he’s weak, and cautions you to try to keep Balreth away from the lava pools inside the volcano, as he will draw strength from them. Mavos also has another piece of helpful advice: “Ah! Don’t let him light you on fire. Yes, that’s something you should avoid.”
Travel through the portal to the interior of Ash Mountain, where you will see Garyn Indoril doing battle with Balreth. Join Garyn, and prepare for a long, brutal fight. You can use the Storm Talisman from Walks-in-Ash to stop him by bringing a thunderstorm down on his head. Garyn wields a magical staff, and he exudes a yellow aura that provides restorative abilities. Balreth does an inordinate amount of damage via burning, stomp, heat wave, and strike attacks. He also summons scamps to harass you and Garyn. Once Balreth has lost some amount of health, he will retreat to one of the lava pools to regain health and stamina, so be prepared for a long fight.
Once you have defeated Balreth, Ragebinder and Blaze will show up to imprison him forever. After speaking with Mavros, exit through the portal and talk with Walks-in-Ash to complete the quest. You will be rewarded with the weapon Dagon Morag, one skill point, and 114 Gold.
