Orchendor was a priest of Peryite, aiding him in spreading disease and creating the Afflicted. He eventually decided to cease working for the Daedric Prince, which prompted Peryite to seek the Dragonborn's help in ridding Nirn of the unfaithful priest. He resides deep within Bthardamz.
Orchendor utilizes standard Destruction spells, favoring frost, and has a great deal of staying power. When cornered or sufficiently injured, he will teleport (becoming temporarily invulnerable) to a nearby space or even to another tier of the same room. In addition, Orchendor is completely immune to fire, frost, and shock spells, as well as absorption effects; physical weapons are recommended. Beast Form is also quite strong against him, although he may die while teleporting, which causes him to disappear.
He is immune to Ice Form, which would stop him from teleporting all over the room. Also he can kill Atronachs very quickly, but could be advantageous to gain some resting time. Summon Arniel's Shade becomes very useful in this situation
If the player has an invisibility potion and the Assassin's Blade skill, sneak behind Orchendor and use a strong dagger or duel wield two daggers and use the power swing with bow of them. Even if you don't have two daggers, a sword and a dagger would do.
If the player can make use of the Dead Thrall spell, Orchendor is an excellent reanimation candidate and one of a few very powerful Thrall options.
If its impossible to beat him conventionally due to your build as a destruction mage, simply lead him back through the dungeon until you reach the Study area where you can kill him using the floor traps. This is assuming you can dodge his attacks and/or heal continuously as you run back through 2 entire areas, which takes 2-3 min.
- If Orchendor is one of your Dead Thralls, casting Call to Arms will cause him to go hostile on you (not verified).
- Fight in an other room and he will not teleport
