Coming soon to City of Heroes: the year 2000! I kid! City of Heroes is adding raid groups, as opposed to its even older school system of just having several groups fight a big target without the game’s caring that they are together. They are adding two raid trials. Even more of a throwback to 2000, City of Heroes is adding a guide/mentor/whatever-they-called-it-in-your-game system, such that you can flag yourself as a newb looking for guidance or as a guide willing to help newbs.
Continuing the alternate advancement system, four of the ten incarnate slots will be in the new update. I am particularly drawn to the notion of adding debuffs to all my damaging attacks, but the other three slots are occasional big AE attacks, big AE buffs/heals, and pets. Is it a backhanded line from marketing to say, “the long-awaited endgame arrives!”? Just seven years after launch…
In addition to the two trials, there will be two new lower-level task/strike forces. And, of course, quality of life additions. You can read about all of the new additions here.
