    Smile High Lords will host Abbot teaching raid on Saturday, March 15 at 8pm EST!

    Our last teaching raid EDQ was good times! Click HERE to read about it!

    The next raid in our series will be Abbot! (aka Accursed Ascension) on Saturday, March 15 at 8pm EST!

    As with all events in this series, the raid is for players newer to the raiding scene or players that are looking to learn raids better. First timers welcome! Dbags not welcome. Please have sound and be willing and able to follow instructions.

    The goal is to welcome newer players into the raiding scene, to teach people how raids work, to get players more comfortable with raids, and to enhance the Sarlona community.

    If you are new to Abbot, you will need to be flagged by first collecting the 8 sigil pieces to complete your sigil of the abbot. Once you've completed your sigil, turn it into the NPC that gives the sigil frame, Sir Rohine in upper Necropolis, and he will grant the quest Litany of the Dead.

    Sigil pieces are most efficiently acquired from chests in the 4 Orchard of the Macabre quests (Fleshmaker's Laboratory, Ghosts of Perdition, Inferno of the Damned and Desecrated Temple of Vol) but can also drop in rare chests in the orchard. Any sigil piece can drop from any chest in orchard quests or rare chests, however sigil pieces 1-4 commonly drop in specific orchard quests, while pieces 5-8 are random. See litany link above for more on sigil piece locations. Note that it is no longer necessary to run orchard quests to flag for litany, as long as you have a completed sigil. You can also carry extra sigil pieces over to your next life.

    Once you are flagged for litany, you will need to complete the quest 4 times to kill each of the 4 bosses. Halfway through the quest, you will encounter a black dragon that will ask you a series of questions. Your answers will determine which boss you face. Answers for these questions, as well as solvers for many DDO puzzles can be found at cubicleninja.com. Be careful to answer correctly, you cannot restart the questions and if you answer incorrectly, the dragon will breathe acid and instakill you. After killing each boss there is an exit beyond the boss chest that you need to exit through, which will take you to the top of the towers outside of the orchard quest corresponding to the boss you killed. There are 4 crystals that need to be destroyed to complete the flagging for that boss. Do not destroy these crystals until all members of your party are present. Party members not present when the crystals are destroyed will not get credit for that boss. Then re-enter litany and do the same for the remaining bosses. Once you have killed all 4 litany bosses, Sir Rohine will grant the raid.

    Abbot flagging requires perhaps more commitment than any other raid but the loot in the raid is among the best in the game, including Quiver of Alacrity, Litany of the Dead (a trinket with the same name as the quest), Staff of the Petitioner, Vile Blasphemy and more! The litany boss chests also contain some very nice, and very rare items.

    If you would like to reserve a space in this Saturday's Abbot, please contact me in game on Gingerspyce.

    Thanks again everyone for all the support and special thanks to Cordovan for the forum and DDO Chronicle plugs and DDOCast for mentioning our TOD event in episode 326!

    Love,

    Gingerspyce and The High Lords of Malkier

    Default Watch it live!

    Our Saturday teaching Abbot will be livestreamed at http://www.livestream.com/Mickydees

    We will also be running a private guild abbot on Friday night at 9pm EST, which will also be broadcasted live at the same address. I don't usually open our guild runs to others because we don't usually have extra space, but we occasionally do and will indicate in the lfm if there is space

    I still have spots available for this Saturday's teaching abbot, so please contact me in game on Gingerspyce to reserve a space!

    Thanks again to Ginger and the High Lords for a successful Abbot de-scension! The loot was underwhelming but the experience was great and that's the important part (for me at least).

    Default Haha I posted this to the wrong thread XD

    We've squelched the abbot's attempt at godhood! We had 3 people that had never run an abbot, and a 4th that never completed. Loot was lame but we got 2 people to learn roids and 2 more to learn ice and goggles puzzles... no beatdown required!

    Our victory pose, complete with a celebratory pork barrel explosion...


    Our next teaching raid night will be a Gianthold extravaganza with Reaver's Fate and FOT on Saturday, March 22 at 8pm EST. I will post in the Sarlona forum soon!

    Any chance you'll be repeating this one? I just found out about these training runs last week and Abbot is the only raid I don't know. Would love the chance to learn it, especially with High Lords.
