Battle Raids are buildings filled with NPCs that are randomly generated throughout the city about once per week. Rumors of these locations can be found by walking through bars and clubs. These buildings have 5 floors, each of which has its own set of NPCs, some of which are unique to raids. To progress up the floors of the raid, a key must be acquired from an NPC kill; keys are specific to each floor. Battle Tactics are naturally important to this type of raid, as they determine how your character handles an NPC in battle. Typical powers, such as Uninvited Guest and Summon Ally, cannot be used to bypass gaining a key. As you make your way to the top, these enemies become progressively more difficult. At the top waits the raid boss. Killing this boss will effectively end the raid, though characters may stay inside to loot until sunrise the next day. Killing the raid boss will also gain you a rare relic that can be either sold for a hefty price or kept to reap the benefits.
- To help find battle raids, you can wear a special Earring of Whispers that alerts you when a team or battle raid spawns within the city.
- You can also find them in bars and clubs where people tell rumors.
- When you lose a fight in a battle raid you will be sent to the previous floor and have to get a key to proceed again.
There are four varieties of battle raid: gang, undead and hunter and City of the Dead. Each of the raid types have a specific set of NPC enemies with varying difficulties and different rewards. Killing the raid boss will reward you with upwards of 150 EXP and a special relic. Although some raids are more difficult than others, lower leveled characters can still participate in raids and gain experience by killing NPCs on the first few floors.

City of the Dead raids are found only in the catacombs. It is said that a powerful, rogue necromancer has set up a stronghold of enslaved dead.
