Notes

The orb for the most part has impenetrable armor:

<You attack>, but your attack glances off the orb's surface.

The "shatter" version of the rune effects can do damage though:

You etch a <symbol> before the orb. The rune shatters over the orb, dealing it x damage. The shards dig into the orb's surface, marring its writing.

You need to do the above attack four times, each with a different script effect active. When you do it the last time, you win the fight and the the message changes:

You etch a <symbol> before the orb. The rune shatters over the orb, dealing it x damage. The shards dig into the orb's surface. It trembles, then shatters.

And at the end of the fight results:
You see strange patterns in the falling shards of the orb, each representing a form or facet of the shard you carry.
