Ragebinder summoned
Garyn Indoril led a force of Pact soldiers to Ash Mountain. They were following the Brother of Strife, Balreth. Using the information I learned from Mavos at Othrenis, we're going to imprison the Brother of Strife again.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Collect ten Daedra hearts.
  2. Summon and defeat Ragebinder and Blaze.
  3. Talk to Walks-in-Ash.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

To imprison Balreth once again, you must now re-enact what you learned in Othrenis. Travel north across the bridge, and begin killing Daedra. Any Daedra within the designated area will drop a Daedra Heart. These cannot be used for alchemy, and Daedra hearts taken from other sources cannot be used for the quest.

After collecting ten hearts, locate a small summoning bowl on a dias surrounded by sarcophogi and urns. One such bowl may be found on a small island surrounded by two thin rivers of lava, the other further south towards the entrance of the ruins. Activating a bowl will summon either Blaze or Ragebinder, who will immediately become hostile, and must be defeated in combat.

Once defeated, each atronach will say that they are willing to help.

Once both Ragebinder and Blaze are defeated, talk to Walks-in-Ash, who is near the Altar of Binding's location during Rending Flames, for a small amount of gold. She will begin The Death of Balreth.
