    Default High Lords will Abbot teaching raid on Saturday, April 26 at 8pm EST

    Our last teaching raid EV6 was fun for all! CLICK HERE to read about it!

    We've had several requests for another Abbot teaching raid, so the next raid in our series will be Abbot! (aka Accursed Ascension) on Saturday, April 26 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 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.

    Usually all spaces are spoken for by the time of the raid, so reserve your spot ahead of time! If you would like to reserve a space in this Saturday's Abbot, please contact me in game on Gingerspyce.

    Thanks for all the support and special thanks to DDOCast and DDO Chronicle for mentioning our events. We hope to see you in raids soon!

    Default Awesome run!!

    We had a great abbot run on Saturday night! 6 people were new to the raid and we were able to teach 2 people how to do the ice puzzle, 2 to do roids and 2 to do goggles. All puzzle done first time no beatdown!

    Thanks for coming everyone and big thanks to my guildies for their patience and for helping out!

    The abbot never had a chance!

    The next teaching raid in our series will be next Saturday, May 3rd at 9:30pm EST. A little later than normal because I have to work all day. I'm going to try to do House Cannith raids Master Artificer and Lord of Blades, but I will post in the forums in the next day or two to confirm which raids it will be!
