Overview

A Trial is a type of mission arc that is similar to a Task Force/Strike Force but with fewer missions. Trials contain unusual encounters with enemies that require a high level of cooperation between team members to conquer. Special rewards are given at the end of trials, such as respecifications or enhancements that affect multiple attributes. Most contain a timed finale mission.

Types of Trials

Trials can typically be categorized into four types:

Standard

Standard trials consist of only 1 or 2 missions. The first mission is typically a hunt task (Defeat X), and the second mission is the trial proper.

Note that these can also be started through the LFG queue, as described in the LFG Trial section.

Respecification (Respec)

Respecification trials typically consist of 3 missions. The first two missions are standard missions (Defeat <boss> and his crew, Defeat X Enemies, etc.). The third mission is the trial proper, which involves defending an objective (heroes) or defeating an objective (villains). These are the only trials that can grant a Power Respecification upon completion.

Note that these can also be started through the LFG queue, as described in the LFG Trial section.

Supergroup

A Supergroup Trial is performed by a supergroup in order to obtain an Item of Power or an Incarnate Component, plus Reward Merits.

LFG

LFG trials are entered through the Team-Up Teleporter queue in the LFG portion of the Chat Window. An appropriate sized team can enter the queue, or individuals or partial teams can enter, selecting a specific trial or the first available trial. As soon as the minimum number of people required are in the queue, a trial will be started automatically after a brief delay to allow further players into the queue. If the max number of people required enter the queue, the trial will start immediately, skipping the delay.

Incarnate Trials are LFG trials, and are detailed in their own article due to additional restrictions on the content, such as requiring a VIP subscription.

Trial Requirements

Each trial has a minimum team size and a minimum level. Trials cannot be out-leveled because high level teammates are automatically exemplared down. Special contacts are required to begin the trial but anyone of the proper level with the proper size team may talk to the contact. Trials will spawn enemies at the team leader's level plus their notoriety, meaning a low-level team would not face enemies at the trial's level cap.

While running a trial, none of the team's other missions are available to them. Once the trial has been formed, a character must continue to run the trial until they finish it or drop from it.

Trials have badges associated with them and often have unique mobs, maps, or both.

Rewards

Each team member chooses a reward upon completion of a trial. The respecification trials offer the options of Reward Merits or a Power Respecification. (The respecification option can only be selected 3 times per character). The other trials grant Reward Merits and/or "Monster" Enhancements. Monster enhancements are not available choices for characters exemplared to the Abandoned Sewer Trial.
