The daedroth breathes fire, doing moderate flame damage over time to all players in front of it as indicated by a red cone.
Ground Quake

The boss stomps, causing shockwaves to travel out from itself dealing moderate physical damage and staggering all players hit.
Summon Dremora
Throughout the fight as its health drops, various Dremora will jump down to attack the group. They will disappear once the boss dies. The group should balance damaging the boss and killing the Dremora summoned. Alternatively, if damage is high enough, the group can choose to focus the boss only before the damage from the adds becomes overwhelming.
At 20% health, the boss summons a shield around itself that must be broken by damaging it.


Various dremora will say the following as commentary during the battle, though Horvantud himself does not speak:

"Show them how we treat visitors to the Deadlands!"
"Come! We'll deal with you ourselves!"
"The flame of the Fire Maw burns like a second sun!"
"Break them! Break the mortals!"
"The Fire Maw will purify you."
"Writhe in fire!"
"Envelope them in flames!"
"Let the flames consume you!"
"You think you'll survive this?"
"Come, greet the new day, and die!"
"Prepare to greet the new day and burn in it."
"Come and greet the new day. It will be your last."
"Prepare yourselves for the end!"
"Let the battle be joined!"



  • Horvantud sports the original green daedroth skin from Morrowind, due to his association with Dagon, as most daedroth are blue due to their alliance with Molag Bal. Hrelvesuu is the only other green daedroth in the game.
  • Horvantud's Ground Quake ability does less damage as of Patch 3.1.5.
