Mavos Siloreth binds Balreth
I've awakened the spirit of an ancient Dark Elf scribe named Mavos Siloreth. Mavos's spirit can't remember how he bound Balreth in the original ceremony. To help me, he's going to perform a ritual and show me a vision of the past.


Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Collect the candle and skull by completing two shrine puzzles.
  2. Close the daedric portals.
  3. Summon the guardians.
  4. Return to Mavos by activating the altar.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Mavos will perform a ritual allowing you to see how he bound Balreth in the past. First, you need to gather a kwama-grease candle and a skull.

Puzzle SolutionsEdit

Collect the CandleEdit

Starting from the left, interact with the first shrine twice to make the flame orange, the middle shrine twice for yellow, and the right shrine once for blue. The order of interaction does not matter. You should now be able to open the chest to get a kwama-grease candle.

Collect the SkullEdit

The left and right shrines need to be set to yellow, and the middle to blue. The chest should open, and you can retrieve the skull.

Watch Mavos in the PastEdit

Return to Mavos with the skull and candle. He is not impressed, but he begins the ritual.

Acolyte Hedyn tells you that they tried to restrain Balreth, but Daedric portals keep opening. Scamps from the portals are killing those who survive Balreth. He gives you a pouch which will allow you to close the Daedric portals and tells you to find Magister Enuse once all three portals are closed.

Magister Enuse is north of the Northern Portal. She tells you Mavos gained control of two guardian atronachs, Ragebinder and Blaze, who should be strong enough to hold Balreth. She tells you to summon both of them.

Interacting with the brazier at the eastern well summons Ragebinder, and the western brazier summons Blaze. Both atronachs join Mavos. Once they are summoned, talk to Mavos. He tells you to touch the altar. Use the Altar of Binding, and the vision of the past fades.

Mavos knows how to bind Balreth now. You need to fix the guardians, which will draw Balreth's power allowing you to bind or kill him. Mavos gives you the Ancient Warden's Greaves and gold.
