Raids are multiplayer bosses that allow up to 30 people to battle together against a single raid boss. The player who discovers the raid will spend AP and any summoning items, then other players who join to help will spend EP.
The raid discoverer and the MVP always receive 1 red chest, while the Vice MVP and third highest contributor get an extra chest as well that can be either a normal drop or red chest(some raids extend this to the top 6 contributors). Red chests have a higher chance of containing better loot. During events, the host and MVP get extra tokens. Individual ranking in a raid does not affect what chests contain or how many drop besides the above bonus chest.
When looking for raids to join, the in-game list will not refresh until every raid currently on the list is completed, but you can also join by raid ID. Raid IDs are commonly found using TweetDeck for when players request help via Twitter. There are also other third-party tools that can parse tweets for raid IDs.

- Using chat or stickers during a raid will give you one free blue potion, per raid. Requesting backup also gives you a blue potion unless the host has turned that permission off or the raid is already full.
- You only need to attack or use a skill once to get loot for the raid. This allows you to attempt to get loot from multiple raids simultaneously. You can join up to three raids and host one raid at once.
- However, raid bosses do have a minimum contribution value that determines whether you receive Pendants; if you are below the minimum contribution, you will not receive any Pendants once 3 minutes have passed since you first joined the raid.
- Red Host chests are always granted to the player who starts the raid
- Red MVP chests are always granted to the player who earns the most honor in the raid. Depending on the raid, there may be a chance for additional players from ranks 2-6 to also acquire a red MVP chest reward.
- Blue Chests for raids that have them are awarded by chance based on each individual player in the raid's honors, and the more honors a player earned in the raid, the more likely the chest is to drop, with a certain threshold that will almost guarantee the drop varying depending on the raid.
- If you are unable to contribute anything before the boss is defeated, any EP used to join the raid is refunded.
- A share chest reward can only be collected by the host of the raid and any members of the host's crew that joined and participated in that raid.
- You can only host or join one raid with a share chest that you are able to collect from at the same time.
- You do not need to be alive when the boss is defeated to get loot.
- If a raid finishes while you're not actively playing it, you can pick up the rewards from Pending Battles. You cannot host or join any raids if you have 5 or more pending battles (During Unite and Fight events, this happens with any pending battles).
