Everquest II raiding is one of the most compelling areas of the game. Raid based encounters are the most difficult encounters available to the player base. In the most common case these encounters require 24 players working together to defeat very tough specialized instances and foes. Raids are categorized into three major designations x2 x3 and x4 encounters. The x# tells us the number of groups recommended for each encounter. The challenges that raiding offers come on multiple levels and are very rewarding to those that are motivated by extreme challenge.
