A Trial Zone or Hazard Zone is a section of Paragon City or the Rogue Isles that has been isolated for safety reasons. Enemy groups tend to be much larger in number and closer together in these zones. Many of these zones contain Task Forces, Strike Forces, or Trials.
There is no practical difference between a Hazard or Trial Zone. Some Hazard Zones contain Trials; some Trial Zones don't.
Hazard/Trial Zone Entry
With Issue 16's release, hazard and trial zones no longer have a minimum level for entry. For example, a level 1 hero can enter the Shadow Shard, which was previously locked to level 40 or higher heroes.
