    hey thanks for the help with Quantum I am just. re installing but I will for sure do as you said 🙂 but this this time I was thinking of starting a Munitions toon. and I wanted to know what a good weapon for Munitions is for DPS and Troll because I’m going to get a armory. and unlike Quantum I have no experence with Munitions so whatever you say I’ll do for sure

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      hehe you are welcome Android we are here to help you 🙂 Once you get experienced with Munitions you will see it is a great power also hehe

    • Android Fever

      hey 🙂 . what weapon would be best for Munitions? for DPS and Troll?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      As a Munition DPS you wont be using your weapon attacks much so Brawling: Shuriken Storm Mastery for increasing hit counter fast will be great for both roles to restore power when you are low powered hehe

      If you want to use a balanced weapon for DPS i recommend you One Handed, so you can use weapon attacks when you are unable to use your AM

    • Android Fever

      Okay thanks 🙂 have a good week 🙂

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      You are welcome Android 🙂

  2. Steven Garcia

    Which is a better power for trolling quantum, light or mental? Like for debuffs, pot and instant power.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Steven, all controller powers have the same debuffs, pot and instant power effects that are only affected by vitalization and dominance statistics. The difference in controller role is more about Crowd Control and combat. For example, quantum has great crowd control effects but light can use UNLIMITED CONSTRUCT COMBOS which can be very helpful if you want to do damage.

      I would choose quantum because i like animation and crowd control effects it has. Also, it is considered one of the most powerful powers in DPS

    • Steven Garcia

      Thanks for the answer… What do you think about this loadout:
      tachyon burst, temporal extortion, quantum tunneling( for getting to pick UPS quicker and escaping enemies), singularity or time shift, even horizon and distortion wave(for stunning) .. Let me know if u agree and what would you change ….it will be helpful if I can get multiple opinions thanks guys

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Steven, that is a great loadout you have. It is almost the same as we have in our Quantum Guide. If you want to check it go here for more information 🙂

  3. Solrac

    between munitions and Mental, wich is the best for all round purpose? for dps/troller.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Solrac, Munitions is considered more powerful than Mental in DPS. As a troller, i consider that mental has better crowd control effects

  4. What is the best troll power overall AT THE MOMENT in your opinon.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Botmon, i really like Quantum Controller because of its crowd control power. Light Controller allows you to use Controller Buffs/Debuffs and also UNLIMITED CONSTRUCT COMBOS. Gadget Controller keeps your enemies with DOT. Munitions Controller constantly stun your targets.

      Hope this answer your question and let you choose what is the best controller power for your gameplay

  5. Does escalating replenish work for munitions? I don’t see a munitions power listed in the mods description.

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Gwon, it should work maybe DCUO Devs havent update ESCALATING REPLENISH tooltip with GU46 and Munitions
