Invisibility Loadout






  • By entering in the Invisibility Mode, players will be able to use any of the Supercharge Powers and they can also deal great damage by spamming Ambush: Sleep [1]
  • Ambush: Sleep [1] will retain Stealth. It also damage and stun your target which is why it deals greater damage than other superpowers.
    • This is great when dealing damage to a single target and you can stay in Stealth Mode

Rotation Tips

  • This Mental Loadout requires a lot of power to use their rotation which is why players should use their superpowers wisely to avoid being outpowered. This can be done by mixing weapon attacks for solos situations
  • Solo Rotation allows player to spend low power in battle by using only necessary superpowers making it viable for solo situations (Challenges, Duos, Missions)
    • This Rotation focus on dealing heavy damage with Terror effect. Using Mass Levitation [1] will inflict Daze and then Pyrokinesis [2] inflicts Terror effects on Dazed enemies.
    • Once you have your enemies in Terroryou should spam Psychic Shock [4] until Terror effect is off
  • Alerts and Raids Rotation has high-power consumption making it only viable when a controller is in the group.
    • This Rotation focus on dealing heavy damage with Daze (Mass Levitation [1]) and Terror (Pyrokinesis [2]) effects. Telekinetic Pull [3] and Psychic Shock [4] should be used until Daze and Terror effects are off
  • Enter to Stealth Mode, when you need to use your Supercharge powers or you are able to spam Ambush: Sleep [1] to a single target

  1. Are 196 sp enough to do any role properly? I mean that’s how many sp I got and I was wondering if I can do my role properly on my main sorcery. However, back to mental, I have a 149 sp toon, are those enough to deal high damage? Thank you

      Hello Vice, i think 196 sp is a great number for any role 🙂

    Love this DPS Loadout … I am a low level, but I am having a blast and can’t wait to do endgame content with it. Thank you!

  3. Hello I’m new to DCUO and im currently only lvl 52 I attempted the build shown above and I feel like I could be doing more damage so my question is will my damage get higher when I get up in lvls for this build or is there a new build that does more nuke damage I could use?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Cam, your damage depends on how many skill points you have in order to unlock stats. We offer tested builds for all situations. However, it doesnt mean they are the only loadouts recommended. But no matter what loadout you use, if your skill points are low your damage will be low too 🙁

    My power no regenerate and my dps damages is low please help me!!!

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Anthony, your power regeneration in Superpowered tree will depend on how much Might & Power you have unlocked. So if you have a lot of power pool the power regeneration will always fill a percentage of it. If your power pool is low you will be struggling to use superpowers 🙁

  5. Thank you so much for the new updated guides <3
