Armories are visual Base items that allow players to imprint their role, equipment, styles, colors, power points, skill points, and loadouts. Armories can be helpful when players want to save and activate their build whenever they need it, by just pressing one button, even in combat.

Players need to complete a mission to receive their first Armory free. If additional Armories are needed, they can be bought individually or in bundles in the Marketplace. Every character can have up to 4 Armories per Base, for up to 16 Armories total, but up to 4 active in the field at any given time.

Imprint Requirements
armories1 armories2
Players can imprint their character’s build and let 3 power points and/or 10 skill points to spend later.
In other words, if players have 15 power points and 45 skill points, they require 12 power points and 35 skills points spent to imprint their build.
Armory Style
armories4 armories3
Lair Theme: Gothic Lair Theme: Deco
Armories’ style will depend on players’ Base Theme. Each base has his own theme so players have different ways to show their armories.
If players have a Hideout instead of a Lair, their  armories will get Deco Theme
Armory Builds
armories5 armories6
Generator is available to configure Armory Builds. Players can have up to 16 Armories total. However, they need to configure up to 4 armories to use them at any given time.
* In PC, Armory Builds can be swapped using the number keys on the Num Pad.
* In PS3 and PS4, players need to Hold down both R2 and L2. This will bring up a UI that will show the D-Pad directions and the associated Armory Builds.
Armory Cooldown
While out of combat, players can change Armories Builds every ten seconds. (yellow cooldown)
While in combat, players can change Armories Build every ten minutes. (red cooldown)
Players cannot change Armory Builds while in PvP combat.
Armory Tips
  • 1 armory is helpful to save character’s build
  • Players can swap between roles if they have 2 or more armories.
  • Imprint your power role (tank/healer/controller) build and DPS build in different armories, so you can be both roles at the same time.

    I just recently returned to DCUO and was unable to use armorys. I believe I made a mistake using old marketplace cash to purchase lair system so I could swap between builds like I used to but am still unable to do so the game says missing *dlc_pack*. from what I’m reading online you just need to have the armory purchased which I definetly have. playing on ps4. please help I’m not sure what I’m missing and it’s quite a hinderance being only able to play a dps role.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Devin, thanks for your question. First time i heard a problem like yours. Please try relocating your base, relocating armories, erasing saved builds, and try to save your actual builds. If that doesnt work try creating a base from the start by picking up all base items

      Hope this helps you, let us know how it goes

  2. Will

    I seen on YouTube a player on PS4 had two separate powers and movement types when he toggled between builds?..

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Will, maybe it got bugged or edit the video because it is impossible to have armories with different powers and movements. As soon as you change to another power, armories with your original power will become invalid

  3. complex9

    you woudnt happen to know there is an error with the armories builds saying not enough skill points to activate gear?Im getting the same strang error on all my charaters

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Complex, Players can imprint their character’s build and let 3 power points and/or 10 skill points to spend later. If you have more than 10 skill pints without using these may bugged your armories.

      If that is not your case try reloging and check if that works. If not make a ticket for DCUO Devs so they can help you 🙂

      Hello Brett, there isn’t a release date yet. However, im sure water power will be launched this year 🙂

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Micayah, you can have different movement or power with armories. If you change them all your armories will become invalid

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      If you havent equipped yet. You can trade that armory with your others characters by using the shared bank 🙂

  4. Carlos

    I want to know why we can’t have two powers why not what’s the reason armorys can’t provide access to multiple powers if we spend 5 dollars for each one (armory) if we aren’t members to get access to things paying members get like a discount for items on the market place I feel the game is doing great but the acces to multiple classes of powers would really be a great way to make more money in my opinion I know I’m willing to spend money for a few of my characters just to flaunt it and as I seen this question has been asked too many times I think for Christmas or sometime around next year that would be a terrific update also I made a new character the other day and the cut scene when the earth is infected by brainiacs exobites the new powers aren’t displayed I always use the opening trailer to lure in a potential fan who will love this type of game as much as me

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Carlos, i understand what you try to do. However, i think DCUO doesnt allow armories to manage multiple powers because they want to encourage players to have different characters instead of one with all powers. Plus, as a web programmer i know how difficult can be to program the idea you have, i am sure DCUO Devs can develop it but maybe they dont consider it a viable or profitable idea to develop 🙁

  5. Denson J Wilzel

    So I have two builds and one of them has a different power then I’m currently using but it says I can’t activate it. Is there way I can use different armor builds with different powers? Or am I only allowed to have one power but different armors?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Denson, you cant have armories with 2 different powers. Once you change your character powers, armories with the previous power become invalid and you will need to imprint a new build with the new power.

    Good afternoon/evening.

    I have 4/4 armories. I brought a fifth armory last night, tried placing it in my hideout and it doesn’t allow this fifth armory anywhere. I read that a player can have up to 16 armories. How do I get more than four armories in my hideout?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Matt, players can have 16 armories distributed en a max of 4 different lair. Each lair can only have 4 armories so if you need to place more of them you must have another Base

  7. ScaScott

    Hey guys, I love the site, hopefully someone can help/understand me, will try to keep it short and simple. How do I sell stuff imprinted to an armory build on PS3? I have tried imprinting additional builds where I imprint traits only, tried putting imprinted items in the bank, and imprinting fresh…still no luck, all I can do is delete imprinted items. Before you ask, yes items are imprinted and not just marked important–those I can toggle just fine…please assist if you can.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello ScaScott, thanks for your comment and we appreciate your support 🙂

      Once your items are not imprinted in armory you will be able to sell it. However, you may check if those items are available to sell. Some equipment like those bought from the vendor are not able to be traded or sold.

      Let us know how it goes 🙂

    2. ScaScott

      That’s my issue. Once imprinted the equipment (including soders) don’t show as available to sell/transmute, only thing I can do is delete said item(s). Am I missing something?

    3. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Those items should be available to sell / transmute once they are not imprinted in your armory. With GU50, items imprinted or marked as important are not shown in vendors list but as i said before some items (like Tier equipment) are not able to sell, they can only be tributed to your league

  8. Chuck Dashing

    Hey guys I have a total of 8 armories but the four i have in use when i press L2 & R2 nobe of them will ativate. Like i even switched builds i can switch to any of them without going back to base. It says “Atleast one or more aspects of this build requires DLC:.” But i have all the DLCs what do i do?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Chuch that is a very rare situation that we dont have information about it 🙁 It should work with no problem at least you should be able to switch between those 2. Make a ticket to contact DCUO Devs maybe they can explain you what is going on 🙁

  9. Torrey

    I logged in this morning to play and I have two Armory Builds – both of them are gone – erased completely.
    Is there a way to get them back or do I have to imprint them all again from scratch?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Torrey, i have heard similar issues about armory. You should probably imprint it again 🙁 because i dont think your builds will be restored

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Matt, using an armory will link to the character that used it. If you want to have another armory with another character you must buy an additional armory

  10. Taylor

    Before I try this, I have 2 armories (rage dps and rage tank) is it possible for me to buy a power token (celestial healer) and then buy another armory and imprint that power in. So I’ll have a rage dps, rage tank and celestial healer all in different armories.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Sorry Taylor, you wont be able to have multiple powers with Armory. If you change to Celestial both Rage Armory will become INVALID so you will only be able to imprint Celestial Loadouts 🙁

  11. Markus

    One thing I don`t understand that each time you reset you skill points or power points or both, it cost more and more, even if you reset the same number of skill or power points. Why is that happening? And how much (Cash) can this resetting can go up? Is there a limit?
    If you ask me there should be a fixed value for reseting your Skill/Power points and it shouldn`t increase each time you reset them. This is just stupid.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Markus, that cash amount is never more than 1000. This occurs only if you reset multiple times at the same day. So in a different day, it will start at $ 500 as normal 🙂

  12. Moon Fang

    i plan on having four bases with each base being for a specific role (ex. Healer, Dps, Tank, Controller) the question i have is can i choose which armories i can use and is my main frame different from each of my bases??

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Moon, you can place your armories in any base you have. However, once installed you must choose what imprinted Powerset do you want to be displayed in that armory. Your armories theme will be according to your Lair decoration. All base mainframe will be equal for each character you own, so if you have 4 bases for 1 character you will be able to set 4 armories per base and 1 mainframe for all bases

  13. Axmys

    I think an update should come out where we can have one toon with multiple powers. For example, I have a character structured after a demon and I had planned to make this character have all 4 roles. Unfortunately, it would seem I cannot do what I had planned.

    – Quantum controller
    – Quantum DPS
    – Celestial healer
    – Fire tank

    Fairly certain it would raise sales too because we have to pay or save membership station cash to respec.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Axmys, it is a great idea. However, i think DCUO does not allow that because they win more by letting people buy more characters slot, change power tokens, and other marketplace content 🙁

  14. MAICON2111

    please help …

    today updated the DCUO game with this Christmas update, and try to use the armorie (ps4 R2 + L2) were blocked, appearing in chat the following message “build does not have the required minimum of 12 power points spent”, and I spent all power points (15 power), and I have 4 armories … must resolve this, because game with DPS and Troll, and have to use armorie to exchange the trees of skill points …. thank you for help now ….

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Maicon, you are probably getting bugged with the update. My advice is that you reset your builds and loadouts then imprint them in the armory. If that doesnt solve the problem you should get a ticket for DCUO gm

    2. MAICON2111

      thanks for the reply so fast, I’m at work when I get home I try to print it again, then I write to tell if it worked.

    3. maicon2111

      could not solve my problem, so I deleted the game along with the update, it will take 3 days to download, I have a doubt when lowering it again I will continue with my characters and items purchased? it deleted everything in ps4, I thank you for your attention

    4. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Maicon2111, your characters will be in your account 🙂 that is the beauty of online games 🙂 The only way to delete a character is to click the “Delete” button and write your character’s name down

    5. maicon2111

      Our’m very happy to hear that, I was very worried because my avatar has CR 110 and SP 99 … would be very sad to start from scratch …. thank you very much for your help and without doubt this blog is the best hope you continue to carry out this great service for a long time, so I’m always following this blog, mainly to make my feats …

    6. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Thanks for your words 🙂 We will continue providing the best info for you as long as we be able hehe Take care 🙂

  15. trey

    N00b ??Hey i was wondering if i have one armory with a controller setup but play as my DPS would i have to have another armory to set up DPS ? .Just getting back into the game see a lot of differ updates i am not aware of the game…Thank you.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Trey, you are completely right, if you want to have a DPS and Controller set up, you will need to buy an additional armory, one for DPS and the other for Controller

  16. Coningan

    Why would I have four armories? I am a Red Lantern (Rage)
    I have two armories and I think I’ll buy another one…
    1-Tank Build
    2-DPS Build
    3-PvP Build
    I think this covers everything, Why would I buy a fourth armory?
    What am I missing?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Conigan, unless you want to have DPS Range and DPS Melee in different Armorier or DPS pvp build and Tank PVP Build. Armories can be very helpful and if you want to have a fourth you just need to find the use of that 🙂

  17. Chris G Davies

    Hi. I know we can’t have different powers to imprint but can we have 2 different power and Skill loadouts by any chance? Like having all dps powers and then going all Healer power and skill loadouts. I hope you understand what i mean.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Chris, i understand what you try to tell me. Lets say you are Electricity, you can imprint: DPS Build, DPS Loadout, DPS Skill points; and then you can imprint in another armory: Healer Build, Healer Loadout, and Healer Skill points; but both from Electricity powers.

      If you want to have in one armory Electricity DPS and in another armory Light Controller after respecting your Power that is imposible. When you respect your Power, others armories with your previus Power will become invalid. I hope this answer your question

    2. Chris G Davies

      Yes Thankyou. You have told me everything i asked and more. Again Thanks i appreciate it.

  18. intoxicatted

    If I had power of hard light can I select a different power like sorcery and imprint
    In the armory and switch between the two

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Intoxicatted, you cant imprint 2 different powers in different Armories. It will make your armory invalid and you will need to imprint it again with your current power

  19. Don p

    Do gear for that specific role have to be in your bag to switch, or can the items be stored in the bank?

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Don P, thanks for asking. You can have your gear stored in the bank with no problem. The Armory will look to that gear and send your equipped set to the bank 🙂

  20. Frank

    My question is with the armories and power points. I noticed that you have various trees loadouts for the different roles & DPS. (Ex: One set for gadget DPS & one for Control with two different trees for each). Can I have two different trees under powers for theses like you have or whatever I have set up for that character’s tree is it?

    1. dcuobloguide Post author

      Hello Frank, thanks for your comment. You can have multiple roles and sets for your character but you need 1 different armory for each one of them.

      Additional armories can be bought from the Marketplace for Station Cash
