Experience raids, the most challenging content in all of Blade & Soul, where 12 warriors come together to put down a foe of extraordinary power.
Identifiable by the Legendary-tier, Raids are instances that the player can only enter once every week. To conquer a raid, the player has to form an Alliance with a total of 12 players. Being in an alliance will also let the player obtain the dropped Legendary loot from the bosses.
Once the first boss has been cleared, the Alliance will receive its own respective ID number. Even if you leave the instance, your raid ID will remain, letting the group come back another day to continue your progress. The lock will also keep you from repeating the same raid instance with another group until it has reset alongside all other Weekly Quests.
After each boss has been defeated, the Alliance Leader can open the dropped chest to see an exclusive loot window. A list of all dropped items will be seen to the left, while a list of the players is shown to the right. Make sure you trust the Alliance Leader when joining a raid group!
Additionally, raids have been categorized into two categories: major ones that require careful planning and strategizing, and light ones that can be joined in what is known as PUGs (pick up group), which you can typically find in the Region chat or Faction chat. This also means that only the major raids can offer particularly grandiose items.
Below this text, you'll find a list of the raids available in Blade & Soul. These have been categorized into each of their respective side story quests.

Twisted Serpent Stronghold
In contrary to many members of the Twisted Serpent, Myung had the empathy and reason to confront the clan elders about what the clan had become: a guild of mercenaries pledging their allegiance to the wrong people. It was said that Myung was exiled for treason and wasn't found since then. In reality, the clan elders had been ordered to kill her. After trapping her in a cave, they doused the cavern with oil, lit a fire, and watched her burn. However, the next day, no body was found.
As a specter of the past, Myung and an army of demons has returned and seeks retribution against the clan's past mistakes. The Twisted Serpent promises to remedy itself, but today, they need your help.

Rise of the Silversteel
With the Silversteel having been driven into the shadows of the mountains in the Silverfrost Mountains, the Talus remains searching vigorously for the remaining members of the mysterious group. After a long wait, the Silversteel’s machines crashed through the ice-riddled mountains—a machine they call the Steelbreaker, their final and ultimate weapon. With their thirst for revenge having turned as cold as ice, an uncontrollable snowstorm is preparing to sweep all over the Realm.

Temple of Succession
With the Ebondrake conspiracy unearthed and production of the Verity Pills brought to a halt, there still lingers an ominous aura of evil as innocent citizens continue to be transformed into rage-filled horrors, despite all efforts to stop the plague from spreading across the Stratus Empire.
With the Ebondrake Seal protecting the Rubrim Shroud taken down, all are putting in their best effort to confront the Ebondrake, the Dowager, and everyone else responsible for this madness. However, be warned — once a royal garden center, the building complex now serves as a research center filled with Ebondrake-grown abominations, innocents twisted by Dark Chi, and unthinkable horrors.

Nightfall Sanctuary was home to the Light Stealer, the Celestial Emperor. As time went by, his trust in others began to dwindle. To ensure he could not be betrayed, he constructed an army of clockwork guardians to watch over him and his palace. These guardians were powered by the Emperor’s prized possession: the Kuranos Cube.
Upon the Emperor’s passing, his incredible power was hidden in Nightfall Sanctuary surrounded by his trusted automatons. Decades later, Chol Mugo, wielding the Kuranos Cube, awoke Nightfall Sanctuary and its guardians from their eternal slumber. The guardians have whirred back to life, and will protect their new master at all costs.
