To defeat Lord Naarifin, one must find a way to overcome his specially designed Creatures and Action Cards. One must not waste too many items on one unit. Imperial-based Creatures can help by swarming Lord Naarifin, making his Action cards useless, but one must also be ready to face his special Creatures—Naarifin's Guard, which will be a challenge to overcome.
- Lord Naarifin was a Thalmor general during the Great War. He opened an Oblivion Gate, and had a Dremora servant called Reive that wielded the legendary sword Goldbrand. Naarifin was ready to initiate "The Culling," a mass Daedric invasion unleashed upon the Imperial Legion and the Imperial City. Lord Naarifin, although said to be part of the non-Daedra-worshipping Thalmor, worshipped Daedra and garnered power through their name. He obeyed Vaermina and Boethiah.
