Rotation Tips

  • This loadout is great for melee and mid-range situations. Blight [3] requires to have enemies nearby to apply Damage over Time
  • Solo Rotation allows player to spend measured power to kill enemies fast.
  • Alerts and Raids Rotation has high-power consumption making it only viable when a controller is in the group.
  • These Rotations focus on dealing heavy damage with Purify (Sacred Light [1] or Divine Light [4]) effects.

    sorry actually Retribution cost less, and purify the enemy, only benefit I see of sacred light is the supercharge generator. And I just do not feel like its worth it. But I very well could be wrong, and I’m hoping you could clarify that for me.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Yes Kendal, you can use retribution with no problem. However, Sacred Light can be great for crowd control enemies when you are going Solo 🙂

  2. Kendall Payne

    I’m assuming you have sacred light in your load out as oppose to Retribution because you want to get your supercharge faster. I ask because retribution cost the same amount of power to activate and does way more damage. Just would like to know if there is any other reason I am not thinking of in case I want to adjust my load out.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      You are right Kendall, we use sacred light as a starter of Purify effect to get supercharge faster. However, this loadout also focus its damage on Plague, Blight, and Divine Light. You can use retribution with no problem instead of sacred light 🙂

  3. just wondering why have plague and divine light in the same loadout?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Jensu, using Divine Light and Divine Light: Corrupted will deal 2 damage over time which is great for dealing heavy damage to your enemies

  4. Valentina

    Just wondering, why the robot sidekick?

    Why not change the robot sidekick for Retribution for example?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Valentina, robot sidekick deals an additional Damage over time. Celestial combos requires casting time which is why using multiple celestial combos will require an immense amount of time impacting your DPS.

      The Rotations have the exact time to deal damage with superpowers and when you conclude the rotation you will be able to start it again with all your superpowers ready to use (except Divine Light)
