I now must duel with Malchir, his time has come. Its a pretty tough battle as he is very powerful. I have to summon a daemon in order to defeat him.


I loot form his body the book “Destruction of the temple” and the Tongue of Flame. These allow me to be the new master of the enclave. Now its time to speak with Pyros. I head back to the giant Pentangle and walk across it. Now I have the tongue of flame Pyros is summoned.

I now need to locate all the elements in order to destroy the guardian.
