    Default High Lords will host Babas Hut and Curse of Strahd teaching raids on Saturday April 6

    Our last teaching raids Master Artificer and Lord of Blades saw great turnout with 6 folks who were new to or still learning the raids! You can read about it and watch the live stream here.

    Next in our series will be a pair of DDO's newer raids in Ravenloft with Old's Baba's Hut and The Curse of Strahd on Saturday, April 6 at 9pm EST!

    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 Baba and Strahd, you will need access to the Mists of Ravenloft expansion. You can run the flagging quests on heroic or legendary to flag just the same. The raids are legendary, however, and due to the very high level of the raids, we ask that attendees be at least level 27 to sign up. There are not heroic versions of these raids.

    Old Baba's Hut

    There is no flagging required but you must have run the intro quest Into the Mists to access Barovia and the Blue Water Inn, where the raid entrance is located.

    The Curse of Strahd

    After running Into the Mists to access Barovia, you will need to flag by completing the story arc through 3 quest chains. Note that there are guides located in each tavern who can teleport you directly to the quest entrances, so it is not necessary to travel through the wilderness zone and find the quests. Some of the flagging quests are intricate and non-linear and may take some time to complete, so plan ahead accordingly.

    Chain 1: "In the Shadow of the Castle" - speak to Ireena Kolyana in the Blood on the Vine Tavern and follow the story arc through the quests Death House, Fresh-Baked Dreams and An Invitation to Dinner.

    Chain 2: " The Vampire Hunters" - speak to Rudolph van Richten in the Blue Water Inn and follow the story arc through the quests Oath of Vengeance, A Raven at the Door, Mad Tea Party and Sealed in Amber.

    Chain 3: "The Light of the Land" - speak to Ezmerelda D'Avenir in van Richten's Tower and follow the story arc through the quests The Final Vintage, Wrath of the Earth, Ravens' Bane and Sunrise.

    Once you have completed all 3 chains, you can pick up the raid from Rudolph van Richten in the Blood on the Vine Tavern.

    I do not have tutorial videos for Ravenloft, but I recommend my guildie Nimvind's Youtube series of tutorials for all Ravenloft quests at Nim Does Ravenloft!

    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 or Voodu.

    This event will be live streamed on my twitch channel 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 and DDO Chronicle for mentioning our events. We hope to see you in raids soon

    Much love,
    Gingerspyce and The High Lords of Malkier

    Default Great runs!

    We had another great week of turnout with 6 signups, including 3 first timers! Both Baba and Strahd went well. We just did the raids on normal difficulty so that we could focus on teaching and learning. You can watch the replay of the live stream on my Twitch channel vooduspyce.

    This week we will be hosting Accursed Ascension (heroic Abbot), so get flagged and I'll post details soon!
