DC Universe Online is permanently being updated and improved. This Game Update introduce: Nature, Light, and Electricity RevisionsT4 Duos, and more.

Power Revisions

  • Powers
    • Improvements tdamage and healing over time stacking rules
      • Generally, damage and healing over time effects will now stack when applied by different players. They will continue not stacking with themselves when applied by the same player.
      • Different players of the same power are now able to use their damage and healing over time effects together for full effect without conflicting with each other.
      • Controller Power over Time Effects
        • The functionality of Controller Power over Time effects have been improved. Players may still only have one Controller Power over Time effect applied at the same time. A new Power over Time effect will only overwrite if it is applied by someone with a higher Vitalization than the one currently applied. This will let multiple Controllers function together harmoniously without anyone’s toes being stepped on.

    • Fixed Light Weight’s Control role damage debuff so that it will work from range.

    With what I think is the final content being released as T4 Duos is there a feat list for this content, I’m still trying to feat up (currently 154) with new content soon Episodes 15 & 16 I would live to eliminate feats before more become active.

      Hello Charles, there is no notice about serums power anymore because it will be replaced with Water. Atomic will be the next released power and then Water. Maybe in the future serums will be the table again

      Hello Tilimicus, Nature and Electricity may have an update because most of their DPS powers are being improved. For light and other controller powers, they are also getting some updates if needed

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Joe, it has been saying that Atomic and Water are going to be the next power released. There is no release date yet but i assume at least 1 power will be online this year
