Align Status Villain.png

Villain is a step in the alignment process. Players can start as villains, or switch sides with their hero. It is also one of two possible final steps in a Praetorian character advancing. In order to switch sides or create a Praetorian character, a player must have Going Rogue.

Becoming a Villain[]

  • A player can create a Level 1 Villain by selecting Villain as the alignment choice at the time of character creation. The new Villain will begin play in The Rogue Isles, and will be locked into villain-only content until at least until Level 20. At Level 20, the Villain can begin the process of changing alignment to Rogue.
  • Starting at Level 20, a Hero can begin the process of becoming a Vigilante. A Vigilante can then work to become a Villain.
  • At the conclusion of its Praetorian story arcs, a player character of either the Loyalist and Resistance alignments make a choice to become either a Hero or a Villain.
