Click Power Icons to display their Tooltip






  • Controllers’ Power over Time is triggered by any superpower.
  • Temporal Extorsion [4] Group Power Heal prioritize allies with the lowest percent power
  • Temporal Extorsion [4] Group Weapon Buff prioritize allies with the highest percent power.
  • Controllers have the main task of debuffing Bosses and NPCs which is why this loadout has all Controller Debuffs
    • Singularity [3]: it is important to keep your enemies Defense Debuff with this superpower. This will let your allies damage them harder.
    • Alcubierre Wave [2]: this Damage Debuff will protect your Tank by decreasing the damage output of your target. This is recommended to be used on Bosses all the time
    • Anomaly [1]: some Instance Mechanics allow Bosses to be healed during battle which is when this superpower works as a Healer Debuff. This superpower is also your Supercharge Generator


  • As a Controller, you have to be always available to raise fallen group members. For this task, Quantum Tunneling [5A] and Time Bubble [5B] grants you a protector Shield
    • Quantum Tunneling [5A] is a better Shield than Time Bubble [5B] but it should be used wisely to avoid leaping into a dangerous location
  • For Controllers, Hand Blasters and Dual Pistols are the most recommended weapons. However, players can still use the weapon best suits them

Tactical MODS

    • Replenishing Adapter: Weapon attacks restore additional power. This effect may only occur once every 20 seconds

    Anomaly is a heal debuff, not defense debuff, so using Gravity Bomb would be an extra heal debuff. Time Shift or Singularity can be used for defense debuffs. Warp Barrage or Alcubierre Wave can be used for damage debuff. Thank you for the very helpful guide – please keep up the good work!

      Thanks Samantha for letting us know this issue. We just fixed the loadout to explain the debuff correctly

    This is a great guide! Is it possible that that the same rotation will work with the recent power revamps or will there likely be a change as all powers become available for usage in a load out?

    • DCUO Bloguide Post author

      Hello Harry, we are currently researching the best loadouts and rotations to make all new power guides. However, this revamp is all about how you feel confortable with and your expertise on using your powers. Stay tuned for our guides update

  3. The content here is epic!

    I’m new to this. Are you saying I should in essence activate my powers in order of 1-6 and keep cycling through? Or are they just mapped for a different reason.

    Thank yiu

      Hello Justin, not necessarily. For DPS role you can follow a rotation to inflict heavy damage. For controllers, you need to use Tachyon Burst (Power Over Time buff) everytime it expires, Temporal Extortion (instant power recovery) when members are low powered, and (heal, damage, and defense) debuff bosses or adds when needed
