    Default High Lords will host Death to Suulomades teaching raid extravaganza on Sat, Feb 23

    Last week's Caught in the Web teaching raid saw another great turnout. You can read about it and watch the live stream here.

    This week we visit a collection of DDO classics in a triple hitter special event we call our Death to Suulomades Extravaganza with the theme of following the horned devil Suulomades through all the raids he appears in. First we will delve into the Subterrane to hunt down Suulomades and kick his butt back to Shavarath in Vision of Destruction. Then we will follow him to Shavarath and pummel him again in Tower of Despair. And finally we will go back in time and defeat his forces once and for all in epic Chronoscope!

    The fun starts at 2pm EST on Saturday, February 23! Please note that this week's event is at an earlier time than our typical teaching raid events.

    Due to the increasing number of raids in DDO, some of the older raids will only be included once in the 2019 teaching raid series. This week's event will be the only time we host VOD, TOD and Chronoscope as teaching raids this year, so if you are new to or still learning these classics, please join us!

    All events in this series are for players new(er) raiding or players who are looking to learn raids better. First timers 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. There is no level cap for any of our teaching raids.

    If you are new to VOD and Chronoscope, there is no flagging required! You will need to have access to the Vale of Twilight and Devil Assault adventure packs. VOD is located in the Subterrane and is confusing to find for many players. We will start from the market and show you how to get to and open the way to the raid. Along the way we'll show you how to find Garamol, the Giant Chieftain skeleton rare who resides in a secret lair and whose chest contains some really cool named items like Icy Raiment, Tira's Splendor and Luck Blade.

    If you are new to TOD, you will need to be flagged by running 4 quests in Amrath: Genesis Point, Sins of Attrition, A New Invasion and Bastion of Power. You will need access to The Devils of Shavarath adventure pack.

    New players may find some of my videos helpful for flagging:


    You will also want to acquire Boots of Anchoring prior to the raid. Boots of Anchoring prevent you from being banished out of the plane of Shavarath and out of the raid. The final boss Horoth can cast Banishment, and if you don't have some way to absorb spells, you will be teleported out of the raid faster than you can say "why am I suddenly in the marketplace?" If you get banished, you will not be able to re-enter the raid and get loot. You can acquire Boots of Anchoring by trading one each of the following ingredients Devil's Keepsake, Pure Shavarath Iron, Demon's Blood and Mysterious Artifact to the Planescaller Liella d'Orien in Amrath. If you cannot acquire Boots of Anchoring before the raid, we have some leftover ingredients that were donated from a previous teaching raid so we can help you get them before we start. You can also use spell absorption items or The Banhammer to avoid being banished by Horoth.

    Space is limited so reserve your spot ahead of time! If you would like to reserve a space in this Saturday's event, please contact me in game on Gingerspyce.

    This event will be live streamed on my twitch channel twitch.tv/vooduspyce so even if you're not on Sarlona, you can watch, learn and ask questions live.

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

    Much love,
    Gingerspyce and The High Lords of Malkier

    Default Good Times

    This is one of my favorite teaching raid events. It's a fun theme and a nice trip down memory lane for an old timer who remembers when Vision of Destruction, Tower of Despair and Epic Chronoscope were end game raids. We had 5 signups that included some first timers to all the raids. On the way to VOD, we took the crew through the Subterrane, showing the basics of how to navigate its confusing complex of interesting traps and unique game features. We started by tracking down Garamol the Giant Chieftain rare and many named loots were discovered! Then we headed deeper into the Subterrane to Suulomades's staging area for the devil invasion. We pummeled him back to Shavarath and tracked him down there in Tower of Despair. We finished the night with Epic Chronoscope, which revisits the devil invasion, a fascinating look at DDO's past when in 2008, led by Suulomades, devil legions invaded the public instances of the market and the landscape changed forever. You can watch the replay of the live stream on my Twitch channel vooduspyce.
