Ongoing Training Missions were added in Issue 21 as a way for new players to learn more about City of Heroes' gameplay. The heroic OTMs feature members of the Shining Stars, while villainous OTMs feature contestants of the Hearts of Darkness Competition.

  • Players are introduced to a contact who has heard things about their adventures and is considering inviting them to join their elite group of super-powereds
  • These arcs are OPTIONAL and can be done at any time, though it's recommended to start at the levels listed below for an optimal training experience
  • These missions are intended for training of Heroes and Villains; there is not a Praetorian version of these ongoing training missions
  • The intent of these missions are to teach through fun, not to feel like the 4th wall has been broken
