Lord Barst fights against hundreds of Varden, Urgals, Elves, and Dwarves, empowered by the strength of an Eldunari in his armour. After a spectacular show of magic on both sides, Barst and Queen Islanzadi duel in single combat. He cuts her down after a brief duel. Then, Roran and all the other forces attack him at once with ballista and rocks, and then Roran gets him in a bear-hug, crushing him. Barst dies, the Eldunari is destroyed, and Roran loses consciousness.
