Tips for completing the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Winterhold College Quests. Near Saartal # 005

Temporarily ignore the magical sphere at a distance, because before you can take a closer look at it, you will have to battle Jyrik Gauldurson. Do not attack him at first, as your attacks do minimal damage. Instead, wait for Tolfdir to notice that the boss is very persistent and takes away some of his power.

Start attacking the boss only after Tolfdir tells you that he was able to weaken Jirik. Of course, you can use standard spells, abilities, screams and magic items, but there is an easier way to destroy it. Please note that Jyrik alternates the use of fire and ice spells. Therefore, the key to victory is to attack it with the opposite element.

If you see that Jirik is going to use fire spells, attack him with ice and fire if he uses ice. Regardless of the tactics you choose, you need to completely drain the boss of his life.

Be sure to inspect the body of Jirik, as you will find a valuable and very useful fragment of the Gold Amulet. Alternatively, you can take the Sealing Letter associated with one of the side quests. At the end, go to Tolfdir and talk with him about the sphere that you found here. Tolfdir will want to stay here and send you to tell the Archmage what you found.

New Primary Goal: Talk to the Archmage

Fortunately, you do not have to go through the ruins again, as you can use the door behind the magic sphere. Cross the narrow corridor. When you reach the new room, go to the Wall of the Word to learn the Word of Power - Ice, the Form of Ice. Also, be sure to check the chest containing precious artifacts (including Adeptic Robes of the Restoration).

Go through the west door and return to the Saartal dig. Then interact with the pen to get to one of the previously visited rooms. Go to the exit and therefore reach the surface.

Open the world map and go to Winterhold College. Then go to the Element Hall and use the previously locked left door leading to the Archmage Quarter. Climb the stairs and find the Arch-Mage Savos Aren. If this is your first conversation, a brief introduction is waiting for you. Otherwise, you can immediately inform him of the find. The archmage will ask you to take care of the origin and significance of the sphere, so he will send you to Urag Gro-Shub. You will also receive a reward, Staff of Magic Light.
