Overview

Archvillains (also known as Arch Villain or Arch-Villain) are extremely powerful entities. They typically have tens of thousands of HP (ten times that of standard bosses), substantial regeneration and recovery, high damage, and have a cycling period of near-immunity to all Status Effects except Sleep and Immobilization. Approach with extreme caution and several teammates.

An equal level Archvillain will con +5 to the player's level. Their name will appear in purple to players of an equal level.

Archvillains will spawn as weaker Elite Bosses against teams which are small and/or using low Notoriety settings. Their heroic counterpart is, appropriately enough, the Hero.

Archvillains are also noteworthy for having strong debuff resistance that scales by level. As of Issue 9, this resistance applies to -RunSpeed, -Recharge, -Endurance, -ToHit, -Defense, -Perception, -Regeneration, and -Recovery.

So, for example, while it might seem as though a Defender's Radiation Infection should be valuable against Captain Mako's extremely high defense bonus in the Statesman Task Force, the Infection's debuffs are heavily resisted. Optimally enhanced, Radiation Infection applies a -61% Defense penalty, which should cripple Mako's defense rating, but as it's against a +4 enemy it is at half strength due to the Purple Patch (-61 * .5 = -30.5), and as it's against a level 54 Archvillain a further 87% of that is resisted (-30.5 * (1 - .87) = -3.965%), leaving the net effect approximately half as useful at counteracting Mako's high defense as using a single Insight inspiration for a +7.5% ToHit bonus. Similarly, even against an equal-level AV, a level 50 Defender's mighty Lingering Radiation Regen debuff will be dropped from its usual -500% to -75%.

Custom Critter Description

Arch Villains are extremely powerful foes. They can oftentimes take down whole parties of Heroes and Villains by themselves.

Weaker Archvillains

Starting from Issue 11, there has been a very small number of Archvillain entities, which, although labelled as such, do not possess the proper amount of HP, endurance, damage levels, regeneration, recovery, and resistance levels, although they may still possess the purple triangles of Archvillain Resistance. Instead, they possess the abilities equal to a Pet or Boss mob of their level. They are almost always Allied units, though sometimes, they may be enemies. It is unknown if this is intentional or if this is a bug. For the heroic list, please see Hero.

A listing is made below.
