Riding the Storm Out map

I finally finished it. After about 4 runs of taking screenshots of the pillars and puzzles in Riding the Storm out, I finally managed to complete my map.

It turns out I was wrong. There aren’t 12 side area puzzles, but 14, 6 west, 6 east and 2 north. There is an equal amount of pillars, i.e. 14. Check out my map below.

That’s all for this post.
Thank you for stopping by.

How to flag for The Fall of Truth

Finally I have finished my last flagging video. Now I have a full set of YouTube videos of how to flag videos. Of course, I did things my way, I didn’t do them the fastest way possible, I did them running elite at level (most of them anyway). Check out the spreadsheet here.

As for the flagging, here’s how you flag.

The flagging for FoT is exactly the same as for The Reaver’s Fate, except for one little detail, the quest givers are different. First you have to flag for Return to Gianthold Tor by picking up, running and turning in the following quests, as well as talk to the chain giver Draznok ar’Athad:
Return to Cabal for One
Return to Madstone Crater
Return to Prison of the Planes

After this you pick up and complete Return to Gianthold Tor to flag for the raid.

I ran this flagging EE at level on my new ranger Cerge. I died twice in Cabal (stoned by one of the reds), once in Madstone (disintegrated by the end boss) and 4 times in PoP (1 time in fire room, 3 times in end fight). I used only 1 cake. Check out my videos below.

How to flag for Caught in the Web

I started the recordings on April 4th and finally finished them last Monday. And now I finally have the videos appended and uploaded to YouTube. The Caught in the Web flag is I’m sure the longest flagging in the game, unless you count farming for sigil pieces in Necro 4.

To flag for Caught in the Web, you have to run the following quests:

Web of Chaos chain + Beyond the Rift (level 16 heroic normal, 21 epic normal). To flag for the Eveningstar chains you can run them heroic or epic. After you’ve run the 4 quests, you can use the rift to get to Eveningstar. I always run them heroic, so for these videos I ran them again on epic.

The Lords of Dust
Servants of the Overlord
The Spinner of Shadows
Beyond the Rift

The first time you run The web of Chaos chain + Beyond the rift, the quests have to be completed in order as each quest run flags you for the next one. The other 3 chains, the quests within the chain will flag you for the final quest, which then opens the next chain. The 3 quests within each chain can be completed in any order. To flag for the final, you have to return to Eveningstar and pick up the quest rewards.

How to flag for the Cannith raids

I did the videos about 3 weeks ago, when Cerge had just hit 20. I didn’t get around to appending them and uploading them til last week.

To flag for The Lord of Blades and  The Master Artificer, all you need to do is run the three quests Power PlayBlown to Bits and Schemes of the Enemy in the House Cannith Manufactury and turn them in, and you’re flagged. The quests are only available on heroic difficulty, while the raids come in heroic and epic.

Watch me flag in the video below.

That’s all for this time.
Thank you for stopping by.

How to flag for The Shroud

I finally got to going through my Shroud flagging videos and uploaded them. This is how to flag for The Shroud.

  1. Head to the Tower of the Twelve and talk to Gustavine Kyerrh. He will give you the quest Finding Meridia
  2. Either run throught the Vale or use a level 3 guild ship navigator to get to Meridia.
  3.  Talk to Grandmaster Aaseamah Screven to complete finding Meridia.
  4. Run the 5 quests out in the Vale and pick up the Shavarath stones from the end chest. Failing to collect the stone will prevent you from flagging. The quest you have to run and the stones you have to collect are:
    1. Running with the DevilsShavarath Stone of Battle
    2. Rainbow in the DarkShavarath Stone of Foresight
    3. Ritual SacrificeShavarath Stone of Might (purple)
    4. Let Sleeping Dust LieShavarath Stone of Strategy
    5. The Coalescence ChamberShavarath Stone of Victory
  5. After turning in the 5 quests, talk to  Valairea Satnarine to start and complete the greensteel crafting tutorial.
  6. Talk to Grandmaster Aaseamah Screven again to pick up the raid.

How to flag for The Codex and the Shroud

The flagging for the legendary version of The Shroud is a lot shorter and easier than the heroic version. The legendary version only requires that you complete two quests; Creeping Death and To Curse the Sky and turn them in. The quests can be complete on heroic (level 15 on normal) or on legendary (level 31 on normal). If you are completing the quests while you yourself are below level 20, the quest giver for the raid will not be there. He will only show himself to someone who qualifies to run the raid, that is an epic character (20 and over). The only difficulty here is that the quests themselves are quite a bit harder than any of the older quests at the same level. Among other things the mobs are tougher and have more hp.

Check out my flagging video:

That’s all folks.

How to flag for Ascension Chamber

I finally finished my flagging videos for Ascension Chamber, which you can check out below.

To flag for this raid:

1. Talk to Sir Rohine Stiedra to start the flagging and to pick up your sigil frame. If you already have one, you can throw this one away if you like. The frames and additional pieces stay through TR.
2. If you don’t already have the sigil pieces to fill your frame, you must run the four quests in the Orchard to gt them. Pick up and run:

Any of the sigil pieces may drop in any of the quests, but some are more likely to drop in a specific quest than others. Read more about this here.

How to flag for The Reaver’s Fate

The heroic Gianthold raid is called The Reaver’s Fate. The flagging is the same quests on heroic as on epic, but the quest givers are different. If you pick up the wrong quests you will still be able to run the quests, you will just not get flagged for the right raid. You also have to flag for Gianthold Tor and run it before you’re flagged.

Ok, so here’s what you do.
1. Talk to Cydonie to pick up the chain. You can also do this after running the first 3 quests.
2. Pick up and run: Madstone Crater (Blaze ar’Rhind), The Prison of the Planes (Nimbus Ar’Yorg) and A Cabal for One (Jorgundal ar’Grund)
3. Turn in the quests, then talk to Cydonie to flag for Tor
4. Pick up Tor from Crag, run it, turn it in.
5. Talk to Cydonie to be flagged
6. Pick up the raid from Agon Uruhond

And here is my flagging video:

That’s all folks.

How to flag for The Vault of Night

As you may know I’m doing a spreadsheet with “How to flag”, “Raid Solo” and “Raid with party”. I’m adding to it as I go, and I’m recording flagging videos where I’ve flagged a character solo. I don’t want to do flagging videos with pug.

To flag for The Vault of Night, pick up the chain from Marek Malcanus (or you can do it after you’ve completed the quests).
Then pick up, run and turn in the following quests:
Tharashk Arena (VoN 1)
The Prisoner (VoN 2)
The Jungle of Khyber (VoN 3)
Haywire Foundry (VoN 4)

You can if you like, talk to Marek Malcanus between the quests, but it isn’t needed. Once you’ve turned in the 4 quests, talk to him again, then you can head up to the raid entrance and talk to Barrow d’Kundarak to pick up the raid.

Here’s the video for the flag for The Vault of Night.

And if you want to check out the spreadsheet, you can see it here.

Thank you for stopping by.
Cheers.
