The Hollows is a Hazard Zone in City of Heroes. A hero needs to be at least level 5 to enter. The Hollows was added as a zone in Issue 2.

This hazard zone is an outlet of Eastgate Bay in Paragon City. After the Rikti War, this section of the city was sealed off to normal traffic, which made it a haven for criminals such as the Trolls , Hellions , Skulls , The Lost and the Outcasts. In recent months, the city has granted limited access to the zone for heroes of the appropriate security level (5 and up) in an effort to retake it from the villain groups that now inhabit it. The deeper into the Hollows you go, the tougher the gangs can be, and the extensive cave networks in the area are rumored to lead to an underground city controlled by the Circle of Thorns. Recent reports indicate an increasing number of Coralax now inhabit the Red River area.

Exploration Badges[]

Badge tourist 01 Parapsychologist

These hills are home to some of the Circle's most secret rites. Very few are allowed to leave after venturing here.

Badge tourist 01 Seeker of Monsters

Grendel's Gulch was named after the Trolls former leader, Grendel, who was defeated by Atta in a contest of strength on this spot.

Badge tourist 01 Geologist

This spot marks the first sighting of the strange, rock-like creatures known as Pumicites.

Badge tourist 01 Backwoodsman

These woods have cropped up at an alarming rate since the Hollowing. Many believe the dramatic growth rate of the trees is due to the area being saturated with mystical residue from the Circle's spells.

Badge tourist 01 Gangland Fury

Since the Hollowing, these streets have turned into a war zone between the Trolls and the Outcasts. Only the constant vigilance of heroes keeps this conflict from turning into a bloodbath.
