A Raid typically refers to an activity that involves multiple teams of heroes and/ or Villains to complete. Raids are specific to certain zones that have raid encounters; Raids do not have contacts, and may be initiated at any time. However, they generally require 20 or more level 50 characters divided into multiple teams, and may take several hours to complete.
Types of Raids
The two raids currently in City of Heroes/ Villains are:
Rikti Ship Raid
|Level Range||Notes / Reward|
|Hamidon Raid||No||The Hive (Heroes)
The Abyss (Villains)
|50||45 to 50||Hamidon Origin Enhancements|
52 Reward Merits
|Rikti Ship Raid||Yes||Rikti War Zone||20+||35 to 50||Variable Vanguard Merits based on critter defeats|
Demolitionist and Master At Arms badges with specific requirements
Although any character in the Rikti War Zone can take part, all Rikti spawned on the ship are level 54. A level 50 character should be the team leader, to sidekick/lackey all the non-50s on the team.
