Tactics

There are 18 Morelendil Guard mobs surrounding the pillars on either side of the room, who spawn only one Tormented Spirit each when defeated. They will engage in groups of three to five once a player runs up to Balhest to trigger the encounter. Each new wave will only come once all of the Morelendil Guard have been defeated from the previous wave. For this reason, it is essential to keep one guard alive while burning the others, allowing the fellowship to defeat the spirits that spawn without having to deal with a new wave of guards at the same time.

As with Elder Morelendil Guard, these guards can only be defeated by The Light That Burns, which shines through south-facing windows in the room, once the counterweight has been used on it. The Tormented Spirit mobs must be pulled to the north side where Exposing Light shines onto the ground through stained glass windows.

Once all Morelendil Guard waves are defeated, the three sorceresses Aignís, Ílith and Muriól will engage one by one in that order. They summon spirits, but can be interrupted. The best way to defeat them is to crowd control two of them while defeating the third.

Balhest himself enter the battle last, after the three sorceresses have met their fate. He has a Chosen of the Eye buff which makes him very powerful and impossible to defeat. In order to counteract the buff, he needs to be pulled into and fought in The Light That Burns. This will replace his buff with The Valar's Gaze, reducing his resistances.

All attacks dealt by Balhest are fire damage.
