...ok,its been awhile since i actually went ona TF raid so if a make a mistake??don't hang me yeah??.

Raid Pre-requisites:
-Must have completed "Slavers of the Shreiking Mines", AND "Bring me the head of Ghola Fan".

-Must have the Sigil of Dal Quor (spelling?)After each pre raid quest,Ghola Fan and Shreiking Mines, you are given a part of the Sigil by the ppl who give you the Ghola Fan and Shrieking MInes quests.
Take these two (2) pieces of the Sigil to Ostler (?)on the Foothold (restless isles entry point,tavern) and he will create a complete Sigil from the 2 parts

Golden Statue and Skull: Useful but not necessary, they simply help make the run TO the raid entrance a little easier.avoids a couple of fights kinda thing.

Hope that was ok,

catch ya.

You don't need to abandon the quest series to repeat the quest series.

To repeat the Titan you just need to repeat the quest and have the sigil repaired (you keep it after completing the raid but it is damaged).

Zawabi's Revenge - Demon Queen Raid
Requirement - Must complete the 3 "main" quests in the desert, and bring the final artifacts to Zawabi The Elder Djinn in Zawabi's Refuge. They can be completed in any order.
1 - An Offering Of Blood. Must obtain the blood of the sacrificed gnoll. [specific name needed]
2- Chains Of Flame. Must obtain the Orb of the Efreet.
3- The Chamber of Raiyum. Must obtain Witch-King Raiyum's Phylactery.

4- Complete "Against the Demon Queen" which is standard 6 person quest way back in the desert.
5- Return to Zawabi and he will teleport you to "Zawabi's Revenge"

For restarting, after your timer is over you can turn the 3 items in to Zawabi the be set up for Against the Demon Queen again. You don't even have to do the 3 main quests again if you have extras of the items.

Twilight Forge - Titan Raid
Requirement - Must complete the quest "Hiding In Plain Sight" in order to gain access to the Restless Isles in the first place. [Unknown: Do you need to complete the original Baudry Cartamon series before you can obtain HiPS?] After that: hell if I know. Bunch of stuff in the Restless Isles, including Shrieking Mines.

Requirements:
1. Hiding in Plain Site (required for access to rest of quests)
2. Bring me the Head of Ghola Fan (need sigil 1/2 from end reward)
2. Slavers of the Shrieking Mines (need sigil 1/2 from end reward)
3. Twilight Forge (RAID)
4. The Titan Awakens (RAID, entrance is inside Twilight Forge)

After completing the raid, your sigil is "damaged" and may be repaired at the Restless Isles, making you ready for the raids again when your timer is up.

Does it count?

As far as I know, the only prereq is that you need to be 8th level.

Actually I am not even sure of that. :o

You may not need to abandon. I'm currently on the timer for my first dragon raid, I'll try talking to Barrow d'Kundarak to see if he'll let me directly repeat the series. Otherwise you'd need to abandon it. Really, it makes no difference which route you take. You still have to talk to Barrow d'Kundarak to start with VoN1 again. Abandoning the series does not impact you in any way over clicking "Repeat this quest" at the NPC dialogue screen.


2)How can I tell how long I have to wait? My timer doesn't seem to be counting down.

If you try to abandon it before the timer is up, you'll get a message telling you in days, hours, minutes, and seconds how long you have to wait.

Anytime you've run a raid, you can always check your timer status by typing /quest at the command line. This tells you how long you have until you can do it all again. Only the Vault requires you to wait to re-run it's prep quests. As previously stated, the Forges' sigil just needs to be repaired - for the Marilith, you can run each of the three prep-quests (Offering, Chains, Chamber) as many times you want and save as many of the completion items as you wish -- however, once the timer is up, you then have to run the first Against the Demon Queen quest.

In the VONS & in between the two ATDQ quests, pay careful attention to whether you've talked to the proper NPCs in between them to ensure you have advanced the chain.

The first step in re-peating all the raids is to abandon them first which you can not do at all until your timer is up.

On the Titan's Sigil - try talking to the trio of NPC's on Foothold, surely one of them might be able to direct you.

If someone else has unlocked part 4, can others join that have not completed 1-3?

you have to be on it to get raid ready. 80% sure that you might be able to tag along for xp only.

Yeah that's what I am looking to determine - I probably wasn't clear. I know I can't pick up a chain in progress and expect to raid. Just looking to see if I can join the group for XP/Loot/Favor knowing it won't get me any closer to the raid.

Yes, you can tag along. Only raid quests have the actual lockout if you aren't on the quest.

Can anyone update this to include requirements for Gianthold Tor and Reaver's Fate?

Thanks!

At any time type /quest to get the exact time in days, hours, minutes and seconds before you can repeat a raid. If you haven't completed any, then it will say none.

The Reaver raid is a little different. You need to Talk to Nimbus, Blaze and Jorgundal, obtain their respective quests. Prison of the Planes (Nimbus), The Crucible (Jorgundal), and Madstone Crater (Blaze). When you have completed all 3 of these quests, turn in 20 Dragon Relics, 20 Elven Relics and 20 Giant Relics to Crag. (He hangs out near the Tor bank.)
Relics are obtainable from any quest out there, if you are in the Storm Eye Quarter you will get Dragon relics, in the Fist Quarter you will get Elven and in the Heart Quarter you will get Giant relics. These is a guy near the Tor bank, a dwarf who will exchange relics for you at the cost of 3 to 1. So 3 dragon for 1 elf, or 1 giant, 3 giant for one elf or dragon etc...
When you have done all 3 quests and turned in your relics to Crag, talk to Cydonie (the girls who brings you to the Tor) and get Gianthold Tor (the quest) from her. As a note of interest, you can complete this pre-raid without actually being ready for the raid. You have to complete the 3 optional dragon fights after the quest has ended in order to be raid ready. White blue and black dragon scales drop from the dragon's chests as well as other very nice named items.
Once you have slain the 3 dragons with their giant companions, you are ready to raid. Once you have beaten the raid, wait for your timer to run out and talk to Cydonie again, and you are ready to go right back into the raid. No pre-raid or anything.

Also, make sure to always grab your end eward after each raid you complete, if you don't your timer won't start, and you will have to wait 2 days 18 hours after you finally get your end reward.

I was wondering what the heck i should do with my relics.

BTW...turning them in for the crappy armor isnt the way to go unless

Now I know...LOL

Yes, If you join a pre-raid group for ATDQ, as long as one person has the actual raid prep work done and is actually able to enter, all can enter.

"[Unknown: Do you need to complete the original Baudry Cartamon series before you can obtain HiPS?] "


I never did the original series of quests and was able to do HiPS.

OP is so ridiculously out of date at this point, it's gone beyond out of date, broken the negative binary data point limit, rolled over into super relevance, then kept on going and back to completely out of date.

Why do people keep bringing this thing back up? There's a much more current one out there.

How about a link to the current Raid Guide? This was the first search result when I googled to figure out what the shattered sigil and horrid figurine are good for...
