The Hive is a Trial zone in CoH. A hero needs to be at least level 45 to enter.

Exploration Badges[]

Badge tourist 01 Time Bandit

Portal Corporation had their main facility here until the Devouring Earth destroyed the area. This forced them to move their headquarters to Peregrine Island.

Badge tourist 01 Heart of the Hamidon

The Hamidon has defeated many heroes.

Transfer Points[]

There is only one entrance to The Hive. In Eden there is a gate in extremely poor repair along the northern half of the far east wall (marked on the in-game map as a red locator).


The northwest corner is where Portal Corporation once had their main facility. It has since been abandoned, and is relatively free of the Devouring Earth monsters that patrol the zone.

Villain Groups[]

The Hive is completely under control of the Devouring Earth. At it's center, you can find Hamidon, surrounded by it's mitochondria. Thorn, Stropharia, Lattice, and Quarry monsters roam through out the zone, while Devouring Swarms patrol the skies.
