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
  • Range Rotation has high-power consumption making it only viable when a controller is in the group.
    • Melee & Mid-Range Loadout has more burst damage than Range Loadout but it will let your character being at a safe range location
  • These Rotations focus on dealing heavy damage with Crush (Debris Field [2] or Unstoppable [3M]) effects.
    • Jackhammer [4M] , Striking Stones [3R] and Upheaval [4R] should be used until Crush  effects are off

    I want to change unstoppable with something that can hit from mid-range , what should I change it with ?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Upheaval or Striking stone can be used for mid range or range situations

    Man I miss just having the images, tired of sifting through a monolog to get to the setup.

    But hey, thanks.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Octo, we are currently working on our guides. Earth DPS will be updated soon. However, we are not using any more images to display loadouts, you can now click the icon and it will display a tooltip you can check some of our updated guides to have an idea on how this guide would look like 🙂

    is might effect pets? and also is it good to be precision based only instead of might

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Forece, pets are only affected by your Combat Rating

  4. B5Freak

    My question is two-fold: has Earth been tested by you during any of the #StatsMatter periods on Test and how soon will this guide be updated when the revamp goes live?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello B5Freak, we are currently finding a way to create guides for StatsRevamp because there will be infinite ways to use your loadout. But we are still waiting for the revamp to hit Public Servers

  5. The movement supercharge I meant. I went fortify golem, rumblecrush, totem, reinforce, a movement supercharge (I am acrobats so backflip attack), and then crystal. Is this load out as effective this has been me and a leaguemates argument for awhile lol.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Aradon, it is a weird choice. Most players dont even bother on unlocking movement superpowers but i think it can be really helpful for pvp arenas. However, for PVE you should focus on your rotation, there wont be many chances to use backflip attack

    • A bit late to the party but just quoting for the bloguide here.

      The movement Supercharge gives power to the pet = more damage from the pet.
      In longer fights I would replace Totem with Debris Field (DoT).
