1.0 INTRODUCTION
________________
Welcome to Paragon City! Below is a guide to help you get around the various
zones in the Birthplace of Tomorrow, a list of special places to see and a
bit of a look at the unsavoury characters who may cross your path in your
travels.

This is not an all-inclusive guide and certainly hasn’t been written to ‘ruin’
people’s experiences of discovering Paragon City for themselves. Instead, this
should be seen as merely an aid to the hero seeking to orientate himself in
the big City and assist in combating crime.

1.1 FAIR USE AND EMAIL POLICY
_____________________________
As collator and creator of this guide, I have no problems with its use and
distribution provided that 1) it is distributed in an unaltered state and 2)
that access to it is free (ie you do not need to pay an access fee of any type
to purchase use of this guide). If you wish to alter this guide and / or
charge for it’s use, permission must first be sought from the creator
(ie me ;-).

If you wish to email me, PLEASE put something in the subject line about City
of Heroes. I tend to delete emails with no subject line on the grounds that
it is spam. Also, all submissions will be credited to their contributors, so
if you send me info that gets included in this guide you will have your name
credited in the Contributors section (5.2), along with some general
recognition of the type of information you provided. Please include a name
(any name or nic) for me to use as I dislike putting contributor email
addresses in guides.

1.2 UPDATE NOTES
________________
*Guide release notes: Launch is April 28 2004, but those with pre-order disks
got in on April 25. This guide (to this point) was predominantly written
during beta, so some information may no longer be valid. Please be patient
when playing and don’t take this guide as gospel!

* Update 23 June 2004: As far as I can tell, most of the information in this
guide is still pretty valid. Some of the early zones have a few more villain
groups to fight (eg Vahzilok) but other than that, things are still mostly
accurate. How Update 1 (Through the Looking Glass) will change that I have
no idea.

* Update 14 September 2004: Issue 2 is due out shortly, which will introduce
a number of new zones and features. I’ll add these in as I manage to explore
them.

* Update 11 October 2004: Have added in a little bit of the changes made by
Issue 2, but what has absorbed my time is confirming the location of badges.
I have included badge information in the relevant zones / neighbourhoods after
confirming their /loc. The badge list I am using comes from:

http://www.unseen.net/coh/badges.php

and a big thanks to Lopt to letting me use it in this guide.

2.0 PARAGON CITY ZONES
______________________
All heroes have access to a map (default key ‘m’ or at the top of the ui)
they can look at to find out where they or their team mates are. Apart from
the zone they start in, these maps will not have their suburbs named. You
can see the suburb perimeters on the map as the coloured lines around the
edges of certain areas – these colours give some small indication of how hard-
core the criminals of that area are. Green areas are the easiest, yellow are
medium and red are the toughest suburb in each zone.

As you run around each zone, you will see that you leave behind an unshadowed
trail on the map. Once you have travelled enough through a suburb, the name
of the suburb will appear on the map for future reference.

The location guide will list a suburb name (eg ‘Downside’) and its location on
the zone map (eg ‘South’). Some estimation has been used here – some zones
stretch in several directions or are small and closely packed – but
hopefully this info will be enough to get you around (at least until you
uncover enough of the map yourself).

You can travel between zones either through use of the Monotram System or by
moving through the zone gates. If you use the Monotram, you will be given a
list of zones that the line (either Green or Yellow) runs through – from this
list you can select your destination. If you use the gates, be aware there are
two types – the green gates (you can freely pass through these no matter what
level you are) and the secured gates (that require a hero have a minimum
security level before entry).

Within each zone a list of villain groups and their approximate strength
(ie Lvls) can be found. These should be used as only guidelines rather than
absolute rules – you may find villains of higher or lower Lvls than indicated
or find a location crawling with a particular villain group one day only to
find it deserted the next.

2.1 ATLAS PARK
______________
Atlas Park is probably the most well-known location of Paragon City and one
of two areas where heroes will start in the city after being dropped off by
the out-of-town bus. With a skyline dominated by a huge statue of Atlas, this
area is under siege from a street gang called the Hellions who can be found
everywhere assaulting citizens and causing trouble.

2.2 GALAXY CITY
_______________
The sister zone to Atlas Park and the other place a hero will start in
Paragon City. Galaxy City is rife with crime caused by the Hellions – it

2.3 KINGS ROW
_____________
Kings Row will come as a shock to the hero coming out of Galaxy City or
Atlas Park – gone are the green grasses and clean buildings of these
safe areas, replaced with dilapidation and industrial decay. The Skulls
dominate the streets in this zone, with other villain groups secreting
themselves away in alleys and abandoned lots.

running between massive buildings. At the centre you will find a giant
statue of a hero sacrificed in the Rikti conflict.

2.5 SKYWAY CITY
_______________
A mass of concrete pillars greets the earth-bound hero on arrival in Skyway
City – those that can fly will have a much easier time getting around this
zone. For those heroes on foot, prepare to race along side cars on the many
motorways that dominate Skyway City’s landscape. Although ordinary citizens
do live in this zone, in reality it belongs to the Trolls who can be found on
nearly every corner peddling Superdine to those who want it.

2.6 PEREZ PARK
______________
[Minimum Security Level: 7]Once a beautiful place to spend a day at a picnic, Perez Park is now infested
with villains to the point that no sane citizen would attempt a walk through
this park. Even heroes need to think twice before venturing into these woods –
dark supernatural entities have been seen in the trees, performing rituals for
unknown purposes. Outside of the park the zone is dominated by street gangs –
the Skulls rule the west side while the Hellions control the east.

TRAINER: None

Circle of Thorns, Clockworks and Hydra

– Lvl 12 – 14 Lost
– Lvl 10 – 13 Vahzilok

2.7 THE HOLLOWS
_______________
The beautiful zone of Eastgate was changed into the desolation of The
Hollows in mere moments by explosives laid by the Trolls. This ruined area
is currently being fought over by Trolls and Outcasts as Paragon City Police
(and heroes) valiantly attempt to hold back the tide of anarchy in this area.

TRAINER:

MAIN CRIMINAL ELEMENT: The Trolls and the Outcasts

NEIGHBOURHOODS:

2.8 TALOS ISLAND
________________
Talos Island is a zone with only a little inhabited land – the majority of
this zone consists of open water. While this can make for some impressive
sunsets, it also means that non-flying heroes might find themselves getting
a bit wet if they attempt to travel to the unpopulated northern islands. Talos
Island itself is a busy (and crime-filled) area – the Tsoo, Freakshow and
Warriors can be seen battling it out on the streets for dominance. The natural
areas are not much safer – Devoured Earth creatures can commonly be found
outside of the civilised neighbourhoods.

TRAINER: Luminary (in New Troy, just off the Monotram)
– Bastion (for Task Force missions) can be found nearby

MONOTRAM: New Troy – Green Line

HOSPTIAL: Phoenix Medical Centre (located in New Troy)

some Circle of Thorns and Devouring Earth

the highway
– The occasional Lvl 22-23 Banished Pantheon can also be found here
– This neighbourhood contains the gate to Founder’s Falls

Eleusis (East): Lvl 25 – 27 Devouring Earth
– This area contains a secured gate to Dark Astoria

2.9 SEWER SYSTEM
________________
Several Paragon City zones have a sewer access port where heroes can enter
the Paragon Sewer System. Numerous criminal elements have taken to the
underground to hide from justice, meaning that any hero who ventures down
here must be ready for almost anything and probably shouldn’t journey down
there alone.

You can enter the sewers from Atlas Park, Boomtown, Kings Row, Steel Canyon
and Skyway City. The Sewer System also allegedly contains links to the
Abandoned Sewer System, a much more dangerous place for heroes…

TRAINER: None

MAIN CRIMINAL ELEMENT: Hellions, Vahzilok and the Lost

NEIGHBOURHOODS:
Atlas Park Sector:
– The Lost (Lvl 5 – 7), Vahzilok (Lvl 3 – 5) and Hellions (Lvl 3 – 5) can
be found in this Sector – the Lost start to appear as you move deeper into
the Sewers.

Kings Row Sector:
– Hellions (Lvl 3 – 5) can be frequently found in this Sector, with the Lost
(Lvl 5 – 7) appearing once you move deeper into the Sewers.

Skyway City Sector:
– Lvl 3 – 8 Vahzilok, Lvl 5 – 7 Lost and Lvl 6 – 7 Hellions can be found in
this Sector.

Steel Canyon Sector:
– Hellions (Lvl 6 – 9) and the Lost (Lvl 8 – 9) populate this Sector.

Boomtown Sector:
– The Lost (Lvl 8 – 9) and Hellions (Lvl 8 – 10) can be found here.
– In a room that links both the Boomtown and Steel Canyon Sectors, take a
moment to note the vandalism that has occurred to the Baumtown sign.

Underworld:
– The Lost (Lvl 5 – 9) and Vahzilok (Lvl 7 – 8) can be found in this area.

2.10 BOOMTOWN
________________
[Minimum Security Level: 10]For heroes used to the populated environment of Paragon City’s other zones,
Boomtown will come as a shock – this zone is a scene of destruction. Debris
litters the streets and few buildings remain standing upright. Along with
this destruction has come an influx of villain groups, looking to use this
area for their own illicit purposes.

TRAINER: None

MAIN CRIMINAL ELEMENT: None. The zone is divided into regions for Trolls,
Outcasts, Vahzilok, Clockworks, Lost, and Fifth Column in effectively equal
numbers

NEIGHBOURHOODS:
Powderkeg (East): Outcasts (Lvl 12 – 16)
– The Lost (Lvl 12 – 16), 5th Column (Lvl 12 – 14), Clockwork (Lvl 14) and
Vahzilok (Lvl 10 – 16) can be found gathered in this neighbourhood

– Trolls (Lvl 12 – 14) can be found when moving North through this
neighbourhood

neighbourhood
– Fifth Column (Lvl 12 – 14) can be found training in the South West section
of this neighbourhood
– The Fuse contains the gate to Skyway City

The Cannonade (North East):
– Mostly Lost (Lvl 14 – 19) and Vahzilok (Lvl 10 – 19) with some 5th Column
(Lvl 12 – 15) training groups
– A tunnel runs through part of The Cannonade that Lvl 13-15 Vahzilok inhabit

Grenadier Village (West):
– Lvl 17-19 Lost and Vahzilok. Lvl 15-19 Clockwork.
– Beware! This region is reportedly the home of Babbage (the Clockwork
Monster)!

Primer (Centre):
– Trolls (Lvl 14-15) and Clockwork (15-17) can be found raiding this area
for scrap

2.11 FAULTLINE
______________
[Minimum Security Level: 14]Another decimated zone, Faultline makes Boomtown look positively inhabitable.
Large cracks scar the earth in Faultline, making travel difficult while also
providing shelter for numerous villains.

TRAINER: None

MAIN CRIMINAL ELEMENT: Vahzilok and Clockworks on the surface, Circle of
Thorns in the cracks

NEIGHBOURHOODS:
Subduction (North):

– Lvl 14 – 15 Circle of Thorns can be found hidden in this area’s
fissures.

2.12 INDEPENDENCE PORT
______________________
As a centre of trade and industry for Paragon City, Independence Port
attracts more than its fair share of criminals, looking for a piece of
the action. The Family are currently the dominant power, but given the
number of Tsoo and Fifth Column in the area, any hero attempting to clean
up this area will certainly find their hands full. Independence Port also
contains the entrance to Terra Volta.

TRAINER: Malaise

MONOTRAM: Crey Cove – Green Line

HOSPTIAL: Bell Medical Centre (located in Crey Cove)

STORES:
:Future Dynamics: located on the corner of Wave Landing and Industry Pier
:Freedom Corps: can be found in the North West section of Industry Pier by
hugging the North Wall

MAIN CRIMINAL ELEMENT: The Family

NEIGHBOURHOODS:
Crey Cove (East):
– The open presence of Lvl 22 – 24 Family, Lvl 22-24 Tsoo, Lvl 22 – 24
Fifth Column and Lvl 23 Freakshow means that conflict is never far away
in Crey Cove
– Crey Cove contains gates to Kings Row and Steel Canyon

NEIGHBOURHOODS:

2.14 BRICKSTOWN
_______________
Brickstown is perhaps most infamously known for being home to the Ziggurat,
Paragon City’s prison. The absence of heroes and lack of available police
resources has seen numerous convicts escape the Zig’s confines and makes
travel through this area dangerous. Complicating factors are other criminal
groups that are also operating in this area, but hopefully the introduction
of private security forces from the Crey Corporation will soon have things
back under control.

2.17 FOUNDER’S FALLS
____________________
Founder’s Falls is Paragon City’s most upmarket address, where anybody
who’s anybody can be seen walking along the jetties or tending to their
yachts. All this prestige has a down side, however – Founder’s Falls
also attracts the most elite criminals to it’s pristine waterways.
Experienced heroes need only apply to the task of cleaning up this area –
without the right combination of experience and luck, any hero operating
in Founder’s Falls will be risking a quick trip to the local hospital.

TRAINER: Infernal (in Williams Square)

3.0 PLACES TO SEE
_________________
Below are just a sample of things you _can_ see while you are in Paragon
City, but stand out for one reason or another as things you would be poorer
for missing while in the Birthplace of Tomorrow.

3.1 STATUE OF ATLAS
___________________
Perhaps the first major statue that many heroes see on arriving in Paragon
City, the statue of Atlas is eternally burdened with the weight of the world
– a strong symbol that new heroes would be wise to remember.

3.2 GALAXY GIRL’S STATUE
________________________
Located in in Galaxy City (just outside Freedom Corps HQ), those who wish to
learn about fallen heroes would do well to visit this statue dedicated to
Galaxy Girl.

3.3 PARAGON POLICE DEPARTMENT
_____________________________
Located in Kings Row’s Freedom Plaza, the Paragon Police Department is the
centre of police operations in Paragon City. Of particular note is the
large coin that sits at the front of the PPD – both heroes and citizens have
been known to use it as a backdrop for their portrait photographs.

3.4 TALOS STATUE
________________
The statue of the fallen hero Talos is an awesome sight, arising as it does
in the waters near Talos Island. It serves as both a testimonial to the
contribution Talos made to the people of Paragon City and as a symbol of
safety – that heroes like Talos will always watch over the people of
Paragon City. Young lovers and sight seers have been known to spend time on
the bridge in Helen’s Point watching the sun rise over the Talos statue’s
shoulder.

——————————

4.0 MONSTERS, MOBSTERS, MERCENARIES – OH MY!
____________________________________________
Entering Paragon City almost ensures a tourist of seeing some form of
organised crime gang, supernatural entities or superpowered miscreants at
work. Below is a list of the bad guys who inhabit Paragon City and brief
guide to the different types of villains you might run into.

Heroes on missions should expect to come across Named villains. These
villains (usually Bosses, but sometimes Lieutenants) have come to
prominence within their group and often lead the group during illegal
activities. These Named villains will be mentioned within their villain
groups below as a “Most Dangerous and Wanted” list for heroes to watch
our for.

Minions are often classified by the type of attacks they can make.
Here are some of the minion suffixes you may run into and what they mean:

Brawler – Brawling
Slugger – Bat
Gunner – Machine Gun
Slammer – Sledge Hammer
Assault – Assault Rifle
Inferno – Flame Thrower
Chopper – Axe
Buckshot – Shotgun
Slicer – Dagger
Bruiser – Super Strength
Muscle – Power Punch
Smasher – Morning Star
Rifleman – Rifle
Grenadier – Grenade Launcher
Launcher – Missile Launcher
Stunner – stun rifle
Martial Artist / Fist – Martial Arts
Slasher – Broadsword
Hewer – Battle Axe
Swordsman – Katana / Rikti Sword
Fire – Flamethrower

4.1 HELLIONS
____________
Found in Atlas Park and Galaxy City, the Hellions are a gang that seek power
through black magic and involvement with demons. Although not very powerful
when in early zones, they are numerous, and an unprepared hero can find him-
/ herself overpowered if not careful. More powerful Hellions can sometimes
be seen near Circle of Thorns rituals, perhaps indicating a link between
the groups.

TYPES:
Minions* –
Blood Brothers

Lieutenants* –
Fallen

*Attack Pre-/Suffixes –
Brawler
Smasher
Slicer
Gunner
Buckshot

Bosses –
Damned [they use fire based attacks]

4.2 THE SKULLS
______________
The Skulls are a death-obsessed street gang. They are easily recognisable
from the prominence of bones and skulls on their outfits. Skulls may
sometimes be found in the company of Vahzilok, indicating some sort of
relationship between the two groups – this relationship appears to be
predominantly hostile, however. Skulls can also occasionally be seen
beating on Hellions – a rivalry obviously exists between these two street
gangs.

TYPES:
Minions* –
Gravediggers

Lieutenants* –
Deaths Head

*Attack Pre-/Suffixes –
Brawler
Smasher
Slicer
Gunner
Buckshot

Bosses –

4.3 CLOCKWORK
_____________

made from garbage. Occasionally they can be seen working on building more of
themselves and can appear in large numbers in abandoned buildings or
scrapyards, which is of concern to any hero.

TYPES:

Monster –

Arch-Villian –

4.4 VAHZILOK
____________
Vahzilok are dead flesh, animated by some perverse power. It is possible that
the ranks of the Vahzilok are bolstered by citizens abducted from the streets
of Paragon City, but little is currently known about who or what is behind
the actions of these zombies. Vahzilok can sometimes be seen in direct
conflict with members of the Skulls.

TYPES:
Minions –
Cadavers*
Abominations*
Reapers

*Attack Pre-/Sufixes –

Arch-Villain –

4.5 OUTCASTS
_____________
The Outcasts are a gang of elementally-powered youths who, instead of using
their power to help rebuild the City, choose to hinder it. Despite having
many powers and abilities similar to heroes, they have instead chosen to use
them against the citizens of Paragon City. It is this disregard for the
welfare of others that mean the Outcasts need to be stopped whenever and
wherever possible.

*UPDATE: From Issue #2, the Outcast minions no longer appear to have attack
suffixes of Brawler, Smasher, Slicer, etc. They now have more element-
orientated powers, making them stand out more from the other street gangs.

TYPES:
Minions –
Outcasts

*Attack Pre-/Suffixes –
Charger [electricity based powers]Torch [fire-based powers]Crusher [earth-based powers]Cooler [ice-based powers]

Lieutenants –
Shockers [electricity based powers and flight]Bricks [earth-based powers]Scorcher [fire based attacks]Freezers [ice-based powers]

4.6 CIRCLE OF THORNS
_____________________
Mysterious magic users, the Circle of Thorns regularly attempts to abduct
citizens for use in their dark rituals. These rituals can be seen from a
distance, emitting an eerie green glow. Accompanying these magic users can
be ghosts and demons that will attack any hero who attempts to halt the
Circle of Thorn’s evil ceremonies.

TYPES:
Minions –
Guards
Thorn Wielders
Archers
Spectral Knights

Named –
Alejas
Tarses

Aldegeron
Palenti

4.7 THE LOST
____________
Another street gang, the Lost seem almost religious about their illegal
activities. It appears they are acting in the name of some great cause or
ideal, but one that will certainly not benefit of Paragon City. The Lost is
made up of Paragon City’s homeless, perhaps held under some kind of thrall
by an unseen power. Some heroes have commented about a possible link between
the Lost and the Rikti, but no solid evidence appears to exist about their
relationships with each other.

TYPES:
Minions –
Scroungers*

Lieutenants –
Headman*
Anathema
Mutate

*Attack Pre-/Suffixes –
Brawler
Smasher
Slicer

Gul

4.8 FIFTH COLUMN
________________
A well-trained and well-equipped paramilitary operation, the Fifth Column can
possibly draw its origins back to World War II, but little information about
this organisation currently exists. The recent Rikti invasion has seen them
emerge from the shadows and openly attempt to recruit new members from the
dispossessed.

TYPES:
Minions –

Capt. Ender
Colonel Volger
Wolfgang
Chaney
Col. Adler
Education Officer
Erich Gruber

Arch-Villain –
Vandal

4.9 TROLLS
__________
Another street gang, the Trolls are easily recognisable by their green skin
– a side effect of the massive doses of Superdine they have ingested. Other
side effects of their drug-taking include increased strength and fast
regeneration of injury, making the Trolls a force to be reckoned with. Trolls
have been seen selling drugs to other gangs, but have also been known to beat
on members of other gangs who have arrived in their territory. Some rumours
exist about a past relationship between the Trolls and the Hellions, but
neither group appears eager to discuss it.

TYPES:
Minions –
Trollkin
Jotun
Gygar

Lieutenants –
Gardvord

Bosses –
Ogre [super strength and regeneration]Caliban

Named –
Njorl

4.10 THE TSOO
____________
This villain group poses a special danger to Paragon City. Not only do they
perform illegal acts themselves, but the Tsoo also appear to be leaning on
other villain groups in an attempt to make themselves rulers of the criminal
underworld. Thankfully this move has been resisted thus far, but if this goal
was ever achieved… heaven help the heroes! From the little intelligence
about them, it appears the Tsoo are powered by mystical tattoos as well as
specialist martial arts training – a deadly combination that make them both
strong and versatile on the field of battle.

TYPES:
Minions –
Defender
Enforcer+
Ink Man*+

*Attack Pre-/Suffixes –
Red
Yellow
Green
Black
White

+Enforcer Prefixes:

4.11 HYDRA
__________
A mystery of nature, the Hydra appear to be creatures created from the slime
and muck of Paragon City’s sewers. Little is known about this villain group,
other they are aggressive and very, very dangerous.

TYPES:
Minions –
Spawn

Lieutenants –
Protean

Bosses –
Man’O’War

Monster –
Kraken

4.12 WARRIORS
_____________
A street gang with an ancient world theme, the Warriors allegedly take
their lead from the famed civilisations of the Romans, the Greeks, the
Spartans and others of that time. In truth, this just means they have
sought some justification for preying on society as they do, for despite
the famed cultures that the Warriors have associated them with, they are
just as barbaric as your common thug.

TYPES:
Minions –
Warriors

Lieutenants –
Slasher
Hewer
Crusher

Bosses –
Pythagoras
Smasher Elite
Axe Master
Sword Master
Hewer Elite

Named –
Anton

4.13 THE FAMILY
_______________
Organised crime has always been a part of Paragon City, despite the best
efforts of heroes and police. The Family is probably the best representative
of this fact – no matter what has been thrown at them, they have managed to
survive, adapt and even prosper in the Birthplace of Tomorrow. In fact, the
involvement of heroes in the affairs of the Family have made them worse than
ever; not only do they know how to deal with superpowers, Family are
increasingly using them as well.

TYPES:
Minions –
Button-men

Lieutenants –
Capo

Bosses –
Underboss
Consigliere

Named –
Joey Shirt

4.15 DEVOURING EARTH
____________________
A radical environmental group, Devouring Earth appear to have arisen from the
Earth itself to fight against the encroachment of humanity. Found
predominantly in untouched natural areas, the Devouring Earth can be seen
helping nature to flourish while attacking those that disturb them or the
habitat they care for.

TYPES:

4.16 BANISHED PANTHEON

4.17 FREAKSHOW
______________
A gang of drug- and cybernetically-enchanced thugs, the Freakshow preach a
tale of anarchy and violence to its increasing number of converts. Those
unlucky to cross paths with the Freakshow will find out that it’s members
don’t feel pain, but just love inflicting it on others…

4.18 PRISONERS
______________
Highly visible in their orange prison clothes, the Prisoners are those who
have escaped from the Ziggurat and now terrorise the citizens of Brickstown.

police officers and 2) beating up heroes who get too close.

4.19 CREY
_________
Crey is a well-funded, highly visible corporation in Paragon City that
provides many of the citizens that live here with jobs. Its agents are some
of the best trained and equipped in the world and has provided incredible
help in preventing the City from falling into chaos with the death of the
heroes in the Rikti Invasion. From time to time a Crey agent is caught
committing illegal acts such as extortion or robbery, but for the most part
Crey does a fantastic job in protecting both heroes and citizens.

TYPES:
Minions –
Crey Juggernaut
Infiltrator
Radiologist
Medic
Researcher
Melee Specialist
Vigilant
Patrol Guard
Riot Guard
Mob Specialist
Research Assistant

Elite Security Agent
Chief Cryo Scientist

Bosses –

4.20 RIKTI
__________
If there is one villain group that citizens and heroes alike both hate and
fear, it is the Rikti. Responsible for the decimation of the world’s hero
population during their failed invasion, the Rikti is an ever-present threat
to Paragon City. Currently stranded on Earth having failed in their invasion
attempts, the remaining Rikti forces should never be underestimated – if they
were ever able to re-open the link to their homeworld, it is almost certain
that Paragon City would fall…

TYPES:
Underling –
Rikti Monkey

Minions –
Improved Drone
Infantry
Communications Officer
Guardian

Lieutenants –
Headman

Bosses –
Chief Soldier
Chief Mentalist

4.21 NEMESIS

____________________
Possibly the greatest threat to the Birthplace of Tomorrow after the Rikti,

greatest heroes who appear intent on conquering our world. Ever wanted to
know how well you’d fare in a fight against Synapse or Valkyrie? Well,
here’s your chance to find out…

being overrun by the Soldiers of Rularuu

5.0 FINAL NOTES
_______________
If I’ve got something wrong or left something out, please contact me and I
will attempt to fix it. This guide still has large chunks that need filling
and any help given to add content would be greatly appreciated.

5.1 THANKS
__________
– To Cryptic Studios: This game rocks hard. What else is there to say?
– To NCSoft: This has been the best beta test I’ve been in by far. And
release (apart from the “not available in my country” bit) has been great
too.
– To the CoH community: I stuck around for CoH, but you guys made the time
[sorta] fly by 😉
– To my gf: who realises what this game means to me and generally leaves
me alone during play sessions.

5.2 CONTRIBUTORS
________________
Version 0.1 – Developed from some personal exploration, MacAllen’s spawn and
zone posts and Gaffer’s trainer post in patch notes.

Version 0.15 – Big thanks to: Macallen for filling in the Villain groups
that I had missed along with some zone info; Cyberhero for a more detailed
breakdown of Kings Row; Geist for doing the same bits as Macallen, only
slower 😉

added “Name” Boss information and added to Steel Canyon zone info.

Version 0.20 – A big thanks to all contributors: Macallen, Circeus, Boodikka,

Version 0.30 – Spent some time exploring Boomtown so I recorded what I saw

Changed the layout for the Named villains to make them easier to read. This
guide appeared at Gamefaqs from v0.30 onwards.

Version 0.60 – With release and the character wipe coming, I thought I should
get my butt into gear and look at some of the zones I hadn’t visited yet.
Died several times, but added information a heap of information to zones and
to villain groups. Added in Talos Statue information. Thanks goes to Grey_Gaeru
and Astartus for some more Named villain information as well as zone info.

Version 0.65 – Changed the order of the villain groups to a more logical order.
This may be the last update for a little while (from me, anyway) since I didn’t
manage to get a pre-order disk (thank you, Amazon!). Some AP / GC information
was sent to me by Icereaver (Virture Server) – some bits of Paragon City have
obviously changed since beta. Grave Digger provided some store information and
Joeschmoe4ever provided some zone / security lvl info.

Version 0.70 – Added in Sewer Network information. Lord Thrash sent me some
more villain information, as did ss5joshua about higher lvl villain names.

Version 0.71 – Added in some content info related to “Issue #1: Through the
Looking Glass”. Also added in King’s Row information submitted by Ezel
Kabakaba.
