: No, it wouldn't. Balor didn't want to destroy the world,
: where's the point in that? He wanted to rule it, sure,

"...seeking not to conquer, but to destroy..."
The central theme of Myth is renewable armageddon. Every thousand years the world is practically destroyed. The Leveller has never won entirely - Moagim died, even though he ruined civilization and unleashed the Myrkridia on the world.
The Leveller TRIES to destroy the world every time; he just never succeeds. If the Leveller was just some conquerer seeking to take over the world... so freaking what? You'd just have politics as usual, but with higher-powered magic. The Leveller is destruction, incarnate.
