The bull horn centerpiece of this Imperial band seems to goad the wearer—challenging them to crush their foes and unleash the ring's fury.

Belharza's Band is a Mythic ring that comes with the Bloodthirsty trait. It can be obtained through the Antiquities system. It was released as part of the Deadlands DLC.


1 item: Increase the damage of your Light Attacks by 900. When you deal damage with consecutive melee Light Attacks, gain a stack of Belharza's Temper for 10 seconds, up to 5 stacks max. At 5 stacks, consume Belharza's Temper and after 1 second, deal 1471 Physical Damage to enemies in a line and stun them for 3 seconds. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds and scales off the higher of your Weapon and Spell Damage.


  • Five fragments are required to create the item, all of which require a master-quality Lead in order to scry, and are classed as master difficulty to excavate.
  • You are required to be at least level 7 in Scrying, and have the Antiquarian Insight IV passive in order to scry Master difficulty leads.
  • Fragment Leads are largely found in the same zone as where the fragment is excavated, save for a few cases where it may be found in different zone.

ON-icon-fragment-Alessian Sacramental Oil.png Alessian Sacramental Oil Limenauruus at Tribune's Folly Gold Coast This is incredibly well-preserved. Some kind of consecrated oil? Is it magical in origin? I can't imagine a vessel like this could survive the hardships of the Deadlands without arcane assistance. — Verita Numida I'm confident that this substance has arcane properties, but the origin of it is puzzling. The vessel has what looks like the Amulet of Kings etched into it, but I don't recognize these side-elements. Are those horns? — Gabrielle Benele Yes. Morihaus's horns I should think. Or his son Belharza's. I've always considered this business about Morihaus and Belharza being actual bull-men specious drivel, but they don't make it easy! Early Alessian priests might have honored them with this oil. — Reginus Buca
ON-icon-quest-Etched Silver Horns.png Etched Silver Horns Treasure Chests in the Gold Coast Gold Coast These are so cute! Are they tiny, little Xivilai horns? They could have come from a small statue, or maybe a piece of jewelry? Maybe some mortal sculptor in the Deadlands fancied them? — Amalien I think they're too big for Xivalai [sic]. These look closer to Colovian minotaur horns to me. I haven't heard much about minotaurs making their way to the Deadlands, if such a thing is even possible. Could it have some connection to Morihaus or Belharza? — Reginus Buca Note the curvature of the horns. This twisting slope corresponds with Tertia Gallus's heretical renderings of Belharza from 1E 1300s. This distinctive horn shape is one of the only aesthetic features that sets him apart from his famous father. — Verita Numida
ON-icon-minor adornment-Ring.png Stainless Imperial Band Mobs in Black Drake Villa Group Dungeon N/A The lack of corrosion here is quite remarkable, given the context. I'm told the Deadlands exacts a heavy toll on Tamrielic objects! This band is clearly of Imperial make, and not cheaply fashioned either. I doubt it made its way to Oblivion by mistake. — Reginus Buca This band is sturdy. Imperial. It's not a legionary's ring, though. Looks like the sort of thing a forge wife might make herself before her wedding. Heavy, regal, well-polished. Someone important wore this. Based on the location, I'd say a battlemage. — Ugron gro-Thumog I think you're right about it belonging to an Imperial battlemage, Ugron. See the scoring on the interior of the band? They're Isandor grips—meant to keep the ring from slipping off. You find them on livelier magic rings that vibrate on the finger. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-misc-Ruby.png Crimson Diamond Treasure Chests in Falkreath Hold Group Dungeon N/A Well, this is a pretty thing, isn't it? The facets on this stone speak to an older gem-cutting technique. First Empire, maybe. Difficult to tell without the gallery rail. I thought it was a ruby at first, but now--you think this could be a diamond? — Ugron gro-Thumog It's almost certainly a diamond of Imperial make. The shape makes that clear enough. The question is, how did it achieve that crimson hue, and why was it in the Deadlands to begin with? Did some Alessian mage pierce the veil on purpose? — Reginus Buca I found a summoning ritual in Maborel's Tome of Rites that uses a diamond as its primary focus. This is Nibenese spellcraft, of course, so the crimson hue in the diamond is no accident. Whatever this summoned relates to St. Alessia somehow. — Gabrielle Benele
ON-icon-armor-Ring of the Pale Order.png Bull's Head Gallery Rail Daily Quest reward coffers in The Deadlands The Deadlands Looks like part of a ring to me. We don't really have the whole picture here, but I'll note that the craftmanship on this is sturdier than your average piece of jewelry. This ring was constructed to withstand a great deal of punishment. — Ugron gro-Thumog The symbology is interesting. At first glance, I thought the design was merely twin horns, but upon closer inspection I see it resembles Nibenese depictions of Morihaus--or even Belharza the Man-Bull, scarce though they may be. — Reginus Buca Ooh, that's interesting, Reginus! But if that's the case, why in Y'ffre's name was something like this in the Deadlands? Perhaps an Imperial mage stumbled upon Dagon's realm by accident? Or some Dremora are interested in Belharza's legend? — Amalien
