Elend eventually realises the meaning of the pattern of the mist-sickness which snaps allomancers, and also discovers the Seers in his army were those who were sick the longest. He uses this knowledge to lead the Seers in battle against the [[koloss]] armies under Ruin's control, depleting all of the [[Atium]] stored in the [[kandra]] Trust. He fuels the last of his Atium with duralumin, seeing the ultimate outcome of his actions. With the knowledge gained from this, he allows Marsh to kill him, giving Vin the drive to attack Ruin directly{{book ref|mb3|81}}, resulting in both of their deaths and Sazed's [[Final Ascension]]{{book ref|mb3|82}}.
