Raids 123 was May 11, 2019.
1. Old Baba’s Hut R1
Shamblertank: Erofentank. I assumed Osi would kite red crows in the outside area, but when he didn’t I tried to. Died when I got hut aggro while kiting crows. Split for sides: Left: Papewaiio, Deviltoy, Minnimi, Titusovid, Osiride, Mintcake. Right: Thazara, Erofentank, Tahlua, Goreofwar, Leolion and Torimi. Completion time: 40 minutes, 34 seconds. Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate and Savior, the Breaker of Chains.
Raids 122 happened May 4, 2019.
1. Old Baba’s Hut R1
There were not that many people in channel that wanted to join the raids so I posted on the lfm and we filled within 15 min. I asked Osi to do the split and as we were getting ready to start, Vonk seemed afk or lagged or something. Tahlua was back and took the scarecrows in the hut and Osi kited them outside and killed the shamblers. I had done a running event earlier in the day and it was affecting my concentration, I died more than I usually do. Completion time (with waiting for vonk): 39 min, 12 seconds. Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Memory of a Tailor’s Duress, Torn, That Which Renders Despair, Patience Through Peril, Vestments of Ravenloft and a + 8 int tome.
Raids 121 happened April 27.
1. Old Baba’s Hut R1
I asked Osi to split the party and he split us Vonkiprus, Osride, Papewaiio, Minnimi, Palter, Upload left, Thazara, Madzombine, Lubash, Torimi, Soulhear, Erofen right. When we got to the puzzles with the red crows I happened to get aggro of them and couldn’t pick anyone I wanted to take over, so I decided to keep them. With Lubash frogging the lesser crows, I figured they’d be fine without my implosion and frog. For outside area Osi kited the red crows and later tanked the shamblers. Things progressed well, even if a bit slow. The raid completed in 34 min, 18 seconds. Loot: 125 Hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Void, the Endless Cold, Torn, That Which Renders Despair, Volley, Arbalest of the Damned and a +8 upgrade tome of charisma.
Raids 120 occurred on April 20, 2019.
1. Old Baba’s Hut LE
Osi was playing Osiride and I more than once during the run forgot this. I asked Vonk to do the team split, and this is what was chosen: Left: Osiride, Vonkiprus, Terona, Gorefwar, Cimpletan, Madzombie. Right: Thazara (me), Zoom, Sesili, Nedlyne, Tetravortex, Palter. We were a bit slower on the totems than usually, but over all it was good. Tahlua usually grabs reds right, this week there was a bit of confusion until I picked a kiter/ tank. For outside area Osi kited red crows and tanked shamblers. Completion time: 31 minutes, 4 seconds. Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Dusk, the Light Descends, The Invisible Cloak of Strahd, Suffering, the Half of Whole.
Tomes, tomes, tomes. The theme of raids 119 (April 13) seemed to be tomes. In in the 5 raids we did we got a total of 4 tomes. Here is the short run down of raids 119.
1. Baba’s Old Hut LE
Titus TR’d and Osiride ER’d, so we were out of a dedicated tank for raids. Osi joined on an alt, and the party agreed to try LE without a tank – meaning we’d kill the shamblers. I had an lfm up for raids, but only accepted people off channel. I chose the teams, attempting to split the group evenly. Left side: Osiraider, Arakasii, Caducea, Noircere, Darkanjel and Dashh. Right side: Thazara (me), Tahlua, Madzombie, Mintcake, Gorfang and Foxysoul. Tahlua took reds again, and for outside area Cad kited red crows. Killing the shamblers was successful and the raid completed in 34 minutes, 42 seconds. Loot: 125 hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Echo of the Icon and a +8 int tome.
Raids 118 was April 6.
1. Old Baba’s Hut R1
Not enough people in EEraids channel interested in joining, so we got 5 people off the lfm. Party split: left side Titusovid, Papewaiio, Palter, Osiride, Flayke, Ubercc. Right side: Thazara, Tahlua, Goreofwar, Ruinerre, Easterbunny, Torimi. My side (right) had no issues with totems, but I struggled a bit with insta killing lesser crows (either missed one with frog or hit implosion at the wrong time). I had the hut most of the first baba fight. Shambler tank: Titusovid. Completion time: 36 minutes, 47 seconds. Loot: 125 Hut runes, 24 Threads of fate, Echo of Ravenkind, Van Richten’s Spectacles, Fate, the Knower of All.
Raids 117 was Saturday March 30. I was at the gym earlier in evening, so when I sat down to do the raids I was slowly getting sleepier and sleepier and during the 4th raid I was pretty much sleeping.
1. Old Baba’s Hut R2
After last week’s challenging R3, I suggested we do R2 this time. Arakasii suggested R1, but I insisted R2 would be fine. Party split: Sokos + Cad again left, rest right with me. Completion time: 48 minutes, 29 seconds. 220 kills, some deaths. Some lag as well. Loot: 125 Hut runes, 24 threads of fate, Gulthias Staff.
I gave SSG some money and they gave me some nice new shinies. The ultimate bundle is just like with the Ravenloft expansion filled with cosmetics. I didn’t buy it for the cosmetics, but I did want the peacock, tome and the teleport to sharn clicky.
After using the code in the store I got 140 Astral Shards, 3 Major Guild Renown Elixirs and 20 Greater Treasure Hunter’s Potions, 5 Mirrors of Glamering and the dimensional bag right away in my inventory. I had to relog to get the sharn ticket. Once clicking on the ticket I got Inquisitive Cosmetics: robe, mask, & cloak (BTA), High Society Cosmetics: outfit, hat, & cloak (BTA), Weapon Aura: Forgewraith (BTA), Cosmetic Pet: Bloodhound, Warforged Peacock (BTA), a Universal Enhancement tome (BTC), a level 15 and a level 30 Shield Guardian (BTC).
If I’m not mistaken, the weapon aura was BTC in Ravenloft, now I’m able to collect one on each of my chars and put it in the shared bank. Each char that logs in will receive a sharn ticket and the things that came with it, so I’ll probably end up throwing a bunch of stuff away. The pets can only be added once, so I’ll be throwing them away on all other characters.
I used the inquisitive robe and cloak on Thaz, the High Society outfit and cloak on Jarvanna. I didn’t like the hat and the mask. I love the peacock pet. 🙂

Raids 116 was March 23. I logged on at 9 pm Swedish time.
1. Old Baba’s Hut R3
Osiride, Tahlua and Thazara from Phoenix Clan, 5 Sokos, rest from EEraids channel. Invite only. Since we did a successful R2 last time, I suggested we try R3 this time. Shambler tank: Titusovid, red crow tanks: Titus and Osiride. Sokos like to stay together because of out of game voice chat and usually go left, so I suggested Caducea as a 6th left. Wisps almost wiped us both in hut and outside. Right side was good on totem killers and puzzlers (I believe we were 4 working on them). Titus got shamblers right away and kept them well, I focused mainly on healing Titus, Osi did Titus and party. Osi got aggro of Baba near the end and kept it. Baba was killing the party members before this. Completion time: 79 minutes, 56 seconds. Deaths: 81. Loot: 125 Hut runes, 24 Threads of fate, Tremor, the Breaker of Bones, Gulthias Staff, Volley, Arbalest of the Damned, The Invisible Cloak of Strahd, and Dusk, the Light Descends.
Titus sent me a tell just before the raids that they’d be 5-6 Sokos for raids and that they could do a second group if there was a lot of interest in the raids, and also asked if we could start with KT. When I logged on, Osi and Ero were waiting for raids, and I had intended to wait for Tahlua, but then put up a “reserved” lfm and asked people in the channel to hit it so I’d get a sense of how many we were. I counted more than 12 in my waiting list and told Titus we were too many and that they should do a second group, then I accepted all the non Sokos (checking that they were already in the other group). This was Saturday March 16.
Raid 1.1: Killing Time LH: failure
We almost wiped in the first trash spawn, but managed to get to the second rift before wiping. Good attempt with jibbers and several kiters, but in the end lag got the best of us and we couldn’t recover.
