Help! Am I Raid Ready

From DDO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This article summarizes the flags, weapons and gear necessary for raids and other quests requiring flagging.

When you join a raid, go with an open mind and listen real well. People may bark orders but they generally do this in order to get completion. A raid can be fun but failing is a huge waste of time, resources and is certainly not fun.

Before you read this article, you should read "What should I bring to a raid?." However good you may think your preparation is, you can always improve it.

Note on Duration:

  • The listed range is from "normal with a strong at-level group, but not world-record speed" to "elite/epic in the worst case scenario, barring any unnecessary waiting for non-game related problems".
  • Average times assume an decently equipped at-level group running the raids on the highest possible difficulty. (eg: Tempest Spine Elite at level10 max, Epic raids at level20 max)

  • Note: As of Update 13, All chests in the Orchard of the Macabre that had a chance to drop Sigil pieces, Tattered Tapestries, Tome of Untold Legends pages, or Shield of Legend fragments now have a chance to drop any of the above. If a chest previously had a specific Sigil piece, Tome page, or Shield fragment associated with it, that chest will remain the best source for that particular item. However, these items can now drop from any of the above chests.

      • kill High Priest of Vol. Take the door out and shatter the four crystals to get credit.
