      Hello Jaden, Celestial is a great dps power. However, you will need to master the celestial combos, timing, and more to become great at it

  1. celestial user

    Thanks for all your help its really helpful knowledge. How would mental powers work in comparison to quantum as far as crowd control, mental powers like mass terror and mass levitation while in the controller role?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Celestial, mental power is also great for crowd control because they have enemies running in fear. However, Mass Terror and Mass Levitation dont have controller debuff so having them in your loadout will require you take off an important debuff. It is recommended that controllers have 2 of 3 debuff in their loadouts so keep that in mind if you start a controller :)

  2. celestial user

    Also in your opinion which power is best at keeping all enemies at bay from you so you can kill your enemies from a distance?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      I prefer electricity with burn weapon mastery loadout. Rage is also great at range and melee also :)

  3. celestial user

    Thanks a lot for ur help :) one more question, I have been switching around my powers lately to see which best fits my style and I found out that my favorite style would be a ranged crowd control power and I know electricity is pretty good and I am recently trying quantum and mental but dont know wutz the best as far as most enemies im able to damage at once, in ur opinion what is the best power in the game for staying back and hitting ur enemies with ranged powers for PVP crowd control? Thank u again for ur help! :)

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Celestial, quantum is the most effective at crowd control in PVE and PVP and its also great at far range. Almost every power must be good at range but if you want a great crowd control quantum is your power. However, it is not considered the best dps power

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Mr Celeste, there is no cap for precision or precision damage. Your precision damage will be higher if you have your precision boosted

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Celestial, in PVP there is not such think of best dps power :) I personally do a lot of pvp and no matter what power your enemy have, if he has more experienced with his weapon attacks and crowd control power then you will be death. I personally like Quantum for its crowd control moves but pvp will always depend on how you manage to block, interrupt, and deal damage with your weapon

  4. celestial user

    What is the best ranged weapon to use for celestial pvp dps and what is the best weapon overall to use for celestial pvp dps?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      For PVP, you should use the weapon you are most dexterous. I personaly like One Handed and Brawling for DPS PVP

  5. tom

    Hey just wondered if the new max damage hand socket will change your ideas on what powers to use. From what I understand they ALL get a 60% damage increase. Unless I misunderstood what the description says. So some other powers might be more useful to toss in the mix eh?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Of course Tom, with Max Damage Hand Tactical MOD there can be other builds and loadout. We are currently investigating what powers can be improved but it doesnt mean all power guides should be changed :) Stay tuned we will post any changes in our Facebook page

    2. tom

      Also I was thinking about this the other day. Clipping isn’t really super effective as dps for celestial huh? I mean first hit with power is might… combo is precision. But anytime I try to clip is only doing the might damage not both. With celestial being prec power you need that combo not just the might at the beginning… or am I just not timing it right?

    3. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Tom, im sure you are not timing it right. You need to wait for the precision combo before clipping with other power. In fact, when the damage goes and the animation ends is so close in time so you will need to practice that timing :)

    4. Tilz

      Yeah the MD mod changed alot for celestial ;)
      Retribution cWither > WM
      At the moment I use in DPS role:
      Plague cDivine Light, Wither cRetribution, Anoint, Retribution cWither, Benediction cMalediction, Cursed Idol
      WcR: Is better on group of adds than RcW or Smite cHaunt.
      RcW: Great singletarget burst
      Plague cDivine Light: Great AoE and ok for singletarget. Tested Divine Light cPlague (kicked Cursed Idol), but it was not a big difference and Cursed Idol is great on big group of adds and good for boss fights (+extra healing)
      Bene and Anoint are your buffs (Bene for crit chance and Anoint for resto and 15% Prec!!!)
      On singletarget Benediction cMalediction is good

      My rotations
      Adds:
      Benediction clipped Anoint, Plague cDivineLight clipped with Wither cRetribution clipped witch Retribution cWither clipped with Plague cDivine Light clipped with Benediction clipped Anoint, etc.
      Basically you rotate PcDL, WcR, RcW and set your Buffs (Bene/Anoint) when they are free.

      Rotation in Singletarget:
      Benediction cMalediction clipped Anoint, Plague cDivine LIght clipped RcW clipped RcW clipped RcW, repeat (-> Timing of rotation and buffs is perfect in case of right clipping)

      Thank you so much Tilz for this comment. This will help us when we update all guides soon when GU 41 arrived. We are glad to have people like you sharing experience with the community :)

  6. Adam

    It seems I don’t know how to do the plague celestial combo. Any tips on that? I can do must of them all but this one … (great site btw).
    Cheers.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Adam, mastering plague celestial combo can be a challenge. You need to wait for animations to complete before you do the next tap or hold. Try to do it slowly and let me know how you did it :) Thanks also for your support

    2. Adam

      So, patience is the key here…
      Celestial’s combos are kind of slow and only after watching in YouTube a player performing this combo I was able to reproduce myself.
      Thanks for your support on this task.

      Keep up the wonderful work.
      And once again: congrats.

  7. Tilz

    Tanks for the Guide but i have some improvements. ;)
    Since WM RcW and Sch have eben weaker than a simple WM Combo.
    I would go:PcDL(multitarget), DLcP(singletarget), Benes, Robot, Anoint, CI
    Clip bene with anoint (First bene… otherwise you would overwrite anoint)
    Robot gives Nice DoT
    CI gives big damage to mobs
    Rotation: Bene Clipper Anoint, PcDL or DLcP, WM, WM, etc
    Just keep the buffs and PcDL/DLcP buff up
    Weapon DW into explosive shot is quick ans strong

    Reply
    1. Tilz

      And celestal dpa is prec based…the might damage is just poor and you will loose damage if you go prec & might

    2. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Thanks again Tilz, we are so happy you share your experience with the community :)

    3. Tom

      I can’t be alone in struggling to understand what he meant. Could you maybe clarify a bit for the rest of us since you understand? There might be some good stuff in there I just don’t get. ;)

    4. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Since Retribution combo Wither and Smite combo Haunt have been weaker than a simple WM Combo.
      I would go: Plage combo Divine Light(multitarget), Divine Light combo Plage(singletarget), Benediction, Robot Sidekick, Anoint, Cursed Idol
      * Clip Benediction with Anoint (First benediction… otherwise you would overwrite anoint)
      * Robot Sidekick gives Nice DoT
      * Cursed Idol gives big damage to mobs
      Rotation: Benediction Clipped Anoint, Plage combo Divine Light or Divine Light combo Plage, WM, WM, etc
      Just keep the buffs and Plage combo Divine Light / Divine Light combo Plage buff up
      Weapon Dual Wield into Explosive shot mastery is quick and strong

    5. Tom

      Hahaha thanks for the translation!! That’s funny because it’s similar to what I use anyway. I start WM with plague combo then again with Benediction to Anoint. Hit another WM to retribution combo then start back over if power permits running through it all over again. For bigger fights ill hit smite combo before starting over.

      Thanks again for the decoder on that post. ;) keep up good work on this page.

      Hello Jordan, the super-powers listed in this loadout are the most powerful in Celestial Trees. They can be used for melee and range DPS

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello TheBestGamer, there are no updates coming for Celestial in short term. But i think it will be hardly to nerf celestial with tons of content coming next in DCUO

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Jordan, i will choose Robot Sidekick over Supercharge because its total damage will override Supercharge damage

  8. Tom

    Hello again… I was poking around some of your other guides… specifically quantum… I’ve been considering switching from celestial to quantum as I’m primarily dps and seems like from reading the attacks can come quicker with it. My question/request to you is this… What do you feel are pros and cons of each power and would which would you recommend. I know a lot of ppl really like celestial I’m just getting bored of it a bit. From what I read on your guide seems like quantum can be very strong DPS as well.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Tom, both powers can be excellent DPS. However, Celestial has an advantage because its damage comes from the celestial combos which are precision base and make you choose precision over might to keep him stronger. Quantum is about weapon mastery rotation but you will need to choose between precision and might. I personally choose might when i use weapon mastery rotation for DPS

      I personally like Quantum over Celestial but i dont expect to win a pro celestial DPS because as i said they have an advantage. Sometimes you just need to enjoy your power. DPS is a very volatile role that depends on: skill points, trinkets, damage sodas, and player experience

  9. Celestial Noob

    Noobish question: How do I do the Plague/Divine Light combo without lunging? I try doing the combo (Tap Melee, Tap Range, Hold Melee) but once I get to the hold melee part, I automatically LUNGE forward the moment I hold melee.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Celestial, the combo you are mentioned is the hardest to complete. You will need to practice your timing and it will do it :) I had problems with it too

    2. Tom

      I had trouble with this one at first too… you really need to do all the button presses slow and deliberately. Hard to explain on text but you kinda need to watch the animation and be patient with it. If you have a Mic and are on ps network add me “vengeful saint” and if I’m on ill help ya out. But SLOW DOWN lol is my best quick advice.

  10. bacacmarcus

    If you’re a melee celestial dps I suggest using Admonish over smite I out burned a member in my league who is a rage dps with 166 sp compared to my 129 sp

    and oh yeah can is it possible for for the dual pistols and bow and arrow to be used with this loadout

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Celestial DPS can be very tricky to use because its heavy damage comes from the Celestial Combos. Dual Pistols and Bow have long weapon mastery combos so you wont be able to use your Celestial Combos frequently :(

  12. jordan yedid

    i have used and seen every weapon in this game. but i can’t decide with weapon is good at doing long range damage. which weapon does the best long range damage

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      For range Weapon mastery combos, you can use One Handed: Solar Flame Mastery, Staff: Mortar Mastery, Dual Wield: Explosive Shot, or Brawling: Enhanced Shuriken Mastery. These are the fastest long range combos ingame. I prefer One Handed because it has great melee and range combos.

  13. Erik

    So after updating most of the DPS guides in your opinion is celestial still one of the better powers out there or no? What do you currently prefer/recommend as far as power and weapon to use as an effective DPS?

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Erik, i firmly believe Celestial is one of the greatest DPS powers in game. However, using a Weapon Mastery Rotation with the celestial combos can be very tricky and will require a lot of practice.

      I personally prefer and recommend Rage power with One Handed, i really like Rage’s resistance and its combos are not complex as Celestial’ Combos

    2. Tom

      Yea it can be a bit tricky. I find that plague to divine light goes so slow that its often interrupted. Thanks though keep up solid work these guides helped me get on track and focused on perfecting role.

    3. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Thank you Tom for your words, this make us very happy and keep us providing more info :)

    4. Tom

      You have benediction and anoint clipped as A suggestion… so would you not recommend using benediction combo to malediction then hit anoint? The way I’ve been running rotation is… start with weapon mastery since plague gets interrupted usually doing the combo… then as it hits then use plague combo’d (for 360%crit chance) then benediction combo’d then anoint…. then as those first 3 powers are recharging ill hit weapon mastery combo with divine light attached then weapon mastery with smite attached… and by then weapon mastery with plague combo’d again to restart the process… hope that made sense. Could I possibly be doing too much and just leave out combos for the power used straight up? Just hit the powers… clip the benediction anoint and use weapon mastery…

    5. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Thanks Tom for your comment, im sure this will help other in their rotation for Celestial DPS

      Two Handed has powerful combos but it is a very slow weapon for PVP. You can try Brawling, One handed, or Martial Arts, those are the most used weapons for PVP

  16. Queen Abellona

    Can I use the cursed equivalent of all the attacks mentioned in the dps load out because I don’t like using blessed attacks with an evil character.

      Hello Queen you can use cursed attacks. However, your Damage will be lower than using them in a recommended way. Some cursed super-powers are only powerful when they are used as a Celestial Combo.

  17. KADAVERIC

    I have around 160 sp, but i cant choose all precision might and the DPS critcicals, from ALL the WEAPONS skills tree.My question is shall i ativate ALL the DPS criticals from ALL trees first, and then the precision and the might, or only ativate the criticals and respective might or precision and this way having to leave some criticals behind, NOT ativating them ( because skill points NOT enoUGH)

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Thanks Kadaveric for your comment, i have been asked the same question and i think you should first unlock Critical Attack Chance and Critical Attack Damage first and then Might and Precision from Weapon mastery Skill points. However, try to find a balance in your statistics because having critical with no might and precision will still deal low damage

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Bacacmarcus, i recommend you to unlock your weapon mastery combos and weapon mastery skill points (Might 25 + Precision 25) before anything else :)

  18. Tom

    Out of curiosity… sometimes when I tap the (or hold where applicable) the combo buttons the character will, for lack of better description, pull light into his chest from hands but not actually do anything to target. I’ve been testing with sparring target using webcast you have listed here. There are times when also it does appear to have a special effect on the target. I don’t understand why sometimes it will and sometimes it doesn’t all while “pulling in the light” animation is going. Thanks for your help.

      Hello Tom, sometimes in sparring target, powers dont work like they should i had the same problem with other powers when i try to practice my rotation in the sparring target.

    2. Tom

      Seems to do it in battle both normal enemies as well. Goes through the animation but doesn’t always create the effect. Dunno thanks though

    3. Tom

      I was going faster than the game… I really had to “throw out the anchor” and force myself to slow it down considerably. Once I started doing that it worked every time. Thanks again.

      Hello bluearrowshot, you should use the weapon which you feel more used to. however, i recommend you to try one handed that is the most recommended weapon by now

  20. Mike

    I’m not sure if this was asked. If the first move is based on might and the combo is based on precision, should I spec into might in order to get the full potential of the weapon mastery? I’m completely confused.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Mike thanks for asking. With weapon mastery, precision is the wisest choice. Weapon Mastery Bonus increase the super power’s chance to crit by 360% and its critical damage significantly, i think that bonus work in this way: if you have 10% Critical Attack Chance with weapon mastery bonus that critical will boost to 36%, so you still have a 64% to not have a critical with that super-power.

      I recommend you to focus on precision instead of might. I assure you will get heavy damage from it =)

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Jordan, celestial trees Blessed and Cursed complement each other to create the celestial combos. For example, if you have Smite and want to access its celestial combo Haunt, you will need to unlock them both. Every superpower is might based but the powerful celestial attacks come from celestial combos which are precision based

  21. Erik

    Hey your guide has helped a lot… do you think running some of the other supercharge powers are more effective than the cursed idol. I always have a healer and troller with me. I was thinking about one of the ones that protects me or heals me.. i.e. guardian’s light, renew, consecrated ground.. just seems like cursed idol isn’t as strong for dps as some of the others. Thanks just looking for input.

    Reply
    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Erik, Cursed Idol is the only supercharge power that is actually for DPS players. Consecrated Ground grants protection, Sacrifice affects your own protection, and Life Drain is more a healing superpower.

    1. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Of course Jordan you can use dual pistol with celestial powers. However, dont forget to use the fastest weapon mastery combos

    2. DCUO Bloguide Post author

      One Handed
      * Dual Flurry Mastery (melee)
      * Solar Flame Mastery (range)

      Brawling
      * Home Run Mastery (melee)
      * Shuriken Storm Mastery (range)

      Hello john using weapon mastery has changed a lot DCUO. YOu certainly can use this with weapon mastery or stick to the celestial combos to deal damage.

    Does the Benediction > Malediction combo life steal only apply to the malediction-marked target? Or is it a generic life steal buff?

      Hello kane, malediction heals only apply to the marked target. The damage dealt by your mslediction power on the marked target will be heal over time by a portion

  23. Jay

    I’ve been using this build for a few weeks now and am really enjoying it.

    It looks like a similar cursed build would work roughly as well (give or take a few mechanics.) Any thoughts on working off an inverted version of this build for more cursed powers? (Minus any unique stuff such as the ever-useful cursed idol.)

    I’m new to DCUO – usually pretty heavy into theorycrafting, but trying to follow through some of the forum threads to find what’s still applicable and what’s not has been tricky. Your guides really do a great job of both simplifying things, and bridging the gap between “just do what feels good” and “take into account all the coefficients” for people like me. Kudos on the great job, and thanks!

      Hello Xalyron, thanks for your comment. In our Celestial Guides, we want to show the best build possible and the most powerful super-powers in the loadout. Celestial powers have not changed much with GU36. However, using powers with Weapon mastery will increase the super power’s chance to crit by 360% and its critical damage significantly.

      When we finish Weapon Mastery guides, we will update our power guides with some useful rotations with Weapon mastery combos

      However, if you love fighting close to your enemy then you should try One Handed or Dual Wield

    Im gonna change my powers to this. If i like it and it takes good damage and etc ill stay whit it cause im kinda bored on rage.

    Hi im just curious why you use admonish in the later raids I’ve never been able to be close enough to use it especially against bosses?

      Hi Thatguy, Admonish is an awesome melee power. Using Admonish + Blight (Cleansed) -> Retribution + Wither (Cleansed) is a powerful rotation but it is only used in melee range. This loadout let players be prepared for melee and range combat because you never know when you will needed. :)

      Hi Matt, Thanks for your comment.

      Dual Wield is an excellent DPS melee weapon, in fact, i use it with my Rage character. About movements, I am more fan of flight than others movements, i prefer to let my character in automatic pilot than climbing walls or run over them.

      Talking about skill point distribution:
      1- Unlock your main weapon combos you want to use. For dual Wield i recommend you to unlock Whirlwind Overstrike, Stunning Swipe, and Dual Flurry
      2- Unlock needed Acrobatic points. It is important to unlock the skills that help you be faster and recover power when you are controlled. In the Acrobatic Tree unlock: Rocket-assisted Glide, Knockback Resistant, Knockback Recovery, Stun Resistant, Stun Recovery, Breakout Mastery.
      3- Unlock weapon trees that helps you getting your required Role Stats. As Celestial DPS your damage is based on precision and you must focus on the following stats: Precision, Might, Critical Weapon Attack Chance, Critical Weapon Attack Damage, Critical Ability Attack Chance, Critical Ability Attack Damage.

      Hi mlh721, We recommend you to dont use Annoint on your loadout. Celestial Combos work like mirror so you need to have both power in the same position from both trees to access combo potential. Unlocking Annoint push you to expend Power Points in unnecesary powers affecting your damage and your DPS perfomance.

    I think you should up a video to every loadout so we can see what it can do on a sparring target or something

      Hi Superpanda91
      Nice to heard from you. For range rotation you can use: Retribution + Combo -> Smite + Combo -> Defile. Retribution combo and Smite Combo can be clipped by each other so get use to the timing on those powers.
      For melee rotation you can use: Admonish + Combo -> Retribution + Combo -> Death Mark + Combo.

      Hope this answer your question :)

    Howdy! This blog post could not be written any better! Looking at this article
    reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this.
    I’ll forward this article to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a great read.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ok I’m just a little confused what’s the key difference between blessed powers like smite and admonish compared to its counter cursed power (haunt and blight). Also when doing the celestial combos does it do the effect shown on the bottom of that power or of its connected power (smite uses haunts cleansed power or smites corrupted power)

      Hi Jeremy, Celestial powers trees especialization are like mirrors, for example Smite (Blessed tree) connects with Haunt (Cursed tree). If you want to activate celestial power combos you need to have unlocked its mirror power (using Retribution you can access Wither Cleansed only if you have it unlocked).

      Some powers are more effective if you activate it from its Blessed tree than the Cursed tree and viceversa. Thats why in this loadout we put only the best powers to use.

      Hope this answer resolve your confusion :)

      I’m making a dps reaper and was thinking of using its mirror build for the crupted look but I am afraid I’ll be sacrificing dps power just for appearance.

    3. Jeremy Elliott

      I’ve been using this exact build but with only the crupted and cursed powers and I am lvl 26 with 13pp and only 20sp and unless its 6+ vs 1 I am doing great. Great build and thanks for the tip but pure cursed layout works just as well.

      Well i havent heard about deseases power interactions for Celestials. But Celestial can purify targets causing their attacks to heal a small amount

    Why smite and retribution? They only give a 35% damage buff. Why not Benediction for better damage? Maybe I’m missing somthing as this power is new to me. Can you give me some details?

      Hi Superpanda91

      Smite, Retribution, and Defile are used for range DPS, although Retribution‘s damage increasing is 35%, it does heavy damage to your enemies. Personally in melee, I use Retribution, Admonish, and Death Mark.

      Benediction is a damage buff that increase your damage for a short time, but it doesn’t make instant damage or damage over time and has long cooldown, thats why it is not considered on this loadout.

      Celestial DPS makes a lot of damage with the most basics powers on the trees and their combos. There is no need to use difficult combos just make fast and heavy damage.

    2. EvL Raiden

      If you combo Benediction into Malediction you get a 12 tick DoT. I have been running Celest for a few months now and I can keep up or exceed any DPS in the game with only using a 1/4 of the power they do. I use Anoint then straight into male/bale combo everytime it cools down. Now of course I only do that in RAIDS where I have trollers. I am a little more reserved in Alerts and Duos

      Hi EvL Raiden, thanks for your comment. Im sure this tip will be helpful. In fact, we will consider it when we make updates for this Guide :)

      Hi Arzon, choosing your weapon is not about what powers you have but how comfortable you feel about using it and its combos.

      As DPS, i prefer to use melee-based weapons such as Dual Wield, One Handed or Brawling. However, if you prefer ranged-based weapon you can try rifle which is the most powerful ranged weapon and has fast combos.
