Rotation Tips

  • Melee & Mid-Range Rotation allows player to be spend measured power to kill nearby enemies fast.
    • Melee & Mid-Range Loadout is recommended for all situations (Challenges, Duos, Alerts, Raids, and Missions).
    • For Alerts and Raids you have to be careful on not dying for being too closed to Bosses or Sub Bosses

  1. Is the gu37 loadout coming soon?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Theyellow Flash, Earth DPS guide has been updated to GU37. This is our recommended build and loadout for Earth DPS with Crystal Pet.

  2. Marlon

    Is this guide updated after gu 37 yet?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Marlon, we are currently working on this guide. We will have it soon 🙂

  3. Donovan

    Earth powers were updated and my powers were reset. Will this change your recommended powers or will it stay the same?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Donovan, we will update our Earth guides soon 🙂

    I wish this power would receive more love and attention. I really enjoy earth dps/tank but there’s not much insight on how to fully use this power compared to other guides I’ve read on this site. =( I would like to know more about the aftershock and clip what with what to ensure high damage output. Rotation tips would be nice as well.

    • dcuobloguide Post author

      Hello Purrrception, thanks for your comment. We care about your request and we will soon explain in detail about rotations and clipping powers for Earth DPS and Tank.

    Hello, what is the reason for the totem if you’re not with the Crystal pet? It’s pretty much “free” damage bonus for the pet to do more damage aside from the innate damage of 45% increase. There are times I plop the totem near a boss and fight slightly at range while Crystal beats them up to a pulp. She practically helps almost shred them to pieces every time unless the boss/enemy keeps moving around.


      Ty good work. But is it not better at the beginning to crushed enemies before we doing deprisfield-clip with reinforce ( PHASE ONE )?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Of course Erdwachter, it is a great idea to use Rumblecrush at the beginning of the rotation.
