    Default Twilight Forge Solo'd - in 2019

    I found out that the "Falconry enhancements tree" is unlocked for any character that gets 700 "Free Agents favor", and immediately i was on my way to the "Twilight Forge" to get my last bit of favor.
    It seemed to be impassable to get a party, so i Searched online for a way to solo the raid and found this: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...t-Forge-Solo-d
    i also found this on you tube: https://youtu.be/oKwp4Fsw47E

    After watching the videos i figured i'd give it a try. you can only imagine my shock when i am in the quest and suddenly get reminded of the "black security barriers".
    Apparently it was possible to completely skip the underwater section, making the raid completable solo.
    This did not go well with the devs, and so they had fixed the raid by adding the "black security barriers".
    This forced the player to go underwater and pull a switch.

    Never the less i insisted on finding a way to do it solo without skipping anything.

    It took me about 2 week overall until i figured it out.

    Here is a video showing the hole run with all the information you will need, so you to can go and do it yourself. https://youtu.be/pA9BsR1_qLs

    I just hope the devs see this as a apretonity for people to become familiar with the raid, and don't decide to go fix it again...

    If the raid is left as is (i hope), then it is time to update the wiki...

    I was curious about how you soloed the underwater maze. Clever use of a pet, soul-teleports--back-to-your-stone, and Reborn in Light.

    For anyone who doesn't want to waste time wading through an hour-long video, that part starts at 26:44.

    Sadly no, but i'm working on it.

    ATM the traditional pillar meted seems to be bugged.

    It should be possible to "1 shot" the titan if you got consistent ~20k damage "single hit" capability.

    I came in with a friend (and was using my main ED) and hit the titan with "1 shot" of 10k+ and it got him down to a bit less than 50% health. so i figure that if you've got ~20k you should be able to do it. (i got 1 shot of 20k+ piercing damage on the "training dummy" but that is very rare for me )

    If anyone has the "warforged titan" MM entry open and can confirm the titans HP on the wiki, it would be a great help.

    TY. i'm glad you enjoyed it.

    I was well aware of the fact that it is a very long video, so i put in the effort to make it as pleasant as possible.
    (I also made the music volume go up and down so to not interfere with the voice.)

    I was kind of rushed to upload the video because i was paranoid that someone might figure it out and make a video before me.

    The video is frome my second full run i've ever done. For the first one i messed up the settings in OBS and got only audio....

    Overall i'm satisfied with the final result and i hope people use it as a guid in general and not just for solo.

    Arrow "Titan 1 shot"

    I still think the traditional way is bugged, and so i figured id give the "1 shot meted" a try.
    i came in with my friend 'Yeshaom' who is running a "Fire Cleric" build. He used 'draconic fury' to bring up his spell power, added some buffs for spell multiplier and spell crit chance, and then blasted the Titan to hell.

    You can see the damage he linked in chat: 32,651 points of fire damage. That is about 50% overkill.

    I honestly don't mind if the devs fix this as long as they make it completable in traditional way again.

    As you can see the hole run was only 1 minute and 21 seconds to complete, making this the fastest way to do this raid by far...
    (P1 of the raid took the 2 of us 20 min and 49 seconds, making the hole thing completable under 25 min. not bad considering the reputation this raid has...)

    P.S. We got no named loot, just in case you were wondering.

    That's a shame, since that raid is source of best UMD boost item, Seven Fingered Gloves, whooping +5 UMD at level 9.

    Default Incredible job on the underwater puzzle

    Gratz, Aldbar. The solution is in the underwater (red) puzzle is just awesome.

    I was looking for information about this raid for trying to do it alone, but using dual-box, with BB in R1. Your detailed video-tutorial helped me a lot. Finally, I got to dual-box it on R1 using level 13 toons. See the videos here (more than 2 hours, ouch).

    Good job on the solo's! Was cool to watch the vids. I bet you had a lot of fun figuring it out, and then executing it

    I may have been the first to solo part2 back in the day, but I always brought a party for prequest. And then stayed back, let them finish raid/disband, wait for reset and went in alone.

    Its one of the coolest raids imo, green room feels like a giant circuit board and the splitting of party can be a bit tricky.
