Due to people (including the founder) leaving the game, my guild Phoenix Clan is now recruiting. We are a level 178 guild on Orien and we have a Kraken with all the amenities.
We are looking for active players, preferably in EU or Asian time zones who are interested in TRing and/ or raiding. We don’t have guild activities, but I do enjoy it when the guildies once in a while manage to get together for a few quests or raids.
All we want from you is to be friendly and non elitist and try and log on as often as you can. Joining the guildies in their activities is a plus.
You can send applications to Thazara in game, Micki on the forums, or to my email by filling out the contact form here on my blog.
I’ve been wanting to revive EEraids.. that is my channel and the weekly EEraids, or well, LE now. I started the channel to try and get ppl together who want to do the highest level raids on the highest difficulty available, and it was going ok for a while. The channel wasn’t as active as I would have liked, but I managed to get a group of ppl together almost every week. After legendary raids came out and the servers were moved, I stopped doing my Saturday raids.
I would like to get back to doing the weekly Saturday raids, and possibly do a raid schedule. I won’t be able to do raids every day, but once or twice a week is doable. So, if you’re on Orien and want to raid, do join the channel “/joinchannel EEraids endgame”. The channel is open for anyone interested in raiding, but for the more difficult raids we will have some requirements of ED, level and gear.
That’s all for this time. Thank you for stopping by.
This is another semi easy flag. Semi in the way that these quests are or used to be quite difficult. Especially solo and Genesis Point will require another player to help open and close barriers in the maze.
Anyway, to flag for The Tower of Despair, head out to Amrath and talk to the following NPCs to pick up the 4 flagging quests:
Run the quests, pick up the quest rewards and pick up the raid from Uloth. I recommend that you also head back out into the Battlefield and locate the Tower Cave, and ask the NPC there to allow you to come back there later. If you do, the next time you’re in Amrath you can just click on the portal to the Battlefield and ask to be teleported to the Tower of Despair. If you do not do this, once it’s time to run the raid, you may need to drop party to run out to the raid, as the wilderness before the raid only allows 6 people parties.
Before running the raid, I’d also recommend making Boots of Anchoring. The boots are not a requirement and you can run the raid without them, but if you’re unlucky, Horoth may banish you, and you will be left without raid loot (and possibly a completion).
After trying the quests out on heroic, I decided to switch to my monkcher and run the quests through on legendary.. and elite of course. I’ve done high end legendary quests on her before, she’s not OP, but she does ok. I felt confident that I’d be able to do it if I played smart. I managed to complete the first quest without dying, the second quest with dying twice… but the third and final quest turned out to be too hard for me to handle. I struggled through to the end fight, dying 3 times on the way there… and once I got to the end I realised there wasn’t a way for me to finish. I spent some time running around the room as a ghost, failing to find a perch spot, I just gave up and recalled.
The flagging for The Mark of Death (epic) is a lot easier than the flagging for Ascension Chamber (heroic). The epic raid only requires that you run the 4 quests in Orchard of the Macabre, turn them in and pick up the reward from the chain giver. But, there is one little trick to it, that ppl tend to miss. You have to have the epic version of the quest picked up, and run the quests on epic to get flagged. You can enter and run the epic version of the quests by picking up the heroic ones, but that will not progress the chain and will therefor not flag you.
Complete the quests, turn them in for rewards and then the talk to the chain giver Agmont Juste to collect the chain reward. Alternatively, talk to him before and after each quest. Once you’ve collected the chain reward, you can pick up the raid The Mark of Death.
Update 32 – Against the Slave Lords was out a few days ago, and I wanted to do a video series of me trying the quests out. My first run through was on heroic, I plan to do another recording when I run the quests legendary. In the first quest I missed a lever and spent an unnecessary amount of time running around looking for it. In the second I got covered in honey and had bees stinging me for a whole 10 minutes and while I was running the third I was falling asleep, and that’s why I’m not talking much in the video.
Anyway, enjoy the videos here or check out my YouTube channel for more videos.
After not having run together at all in August, last Friday Jarvanna met up with Schoan and Valdayanie for some legendary questing. I’m not sure we knew what we were getting ourselves into. We’re all level 27 and a bit undergeard, the legendary difficulty means the quests are level 31 upwards.
We started with Memoirs of an Illusory Larcener on legendary hard, and that one went pretty well.. except for the end fight were we died and died and die some more before we got it done.

I plan to do a series of flagging videos for the raids in ddo that require flagging, and I decided to start with ADQ, mainly because I happened to have a character that wasn’t flagged for it. I was going to split the video up in several videos, but in the end I appended the clips into one long video. I had a few glitches on the way, first the recording turned off on me in the wizard king* so I lost a few minutes there, and then my computer crashed in the middle of Chains of Flame and I ended up having to redo that video, losing out on some of the footage in between.
I finally had some time to play and I managed to cap Thaz yesterday. So, I wanted to do an updated post about her gear and build. I’m pretty much still following the Thazara 1.4 build, but I’m sticking to concentration over diplomacy and I have here updated the build plan to include levels 29 and 30. This is a max wisdom, max evocation dc, light spammer build. Force is used for blade barrier and arcane pulse.
