Graviton-Charged Loadout






  • Solo Rotation
    • Time Bomb [5] > Singularity [4] > Gravitonic Field [3] > Weapon Attacks (until Time Bomb [5] explodes)
    • Time Bomb [5] > Singularity [4] > Gravitonic Field [3]Gravity Bomb [2] > Weapon Attacks (until Time Bomb [5] explodes)
  • Alerts and Raids Rotation
    • Time Bomb [5] > Singularity [4] > Gravitonic Field [3]Gravity Bomb [2] > Inspiral Waves [1] x2
Destabilizer Loadout






  • Alerts and Raids Rotation
    • Time Bomb [5] > Time Shift [4] > Distortion Wave [3] > Warp Barrage [2] > Tachyon Blast [1] x2

Rotation Tips

  • Both Loadouts focus their main damage on Time Bomb [5]. This superpower grows in strength as you damage enemies inside so players should deal the highest amount of damage before the Time Bomb [5] explodes
  • Alerts and Raids Rotations from both Loadouts have high-power consumption making them only viable when a controller is in the group.
  • Graviton-Charged Loadout is viable for all situations. It is great for crowd control NPCs and hit them hard while they are unable to move or attack
    • Solo Rotation uses Weapon attacks and DOTs (Singularity [4] and Gravitonic Field [3]) to empower Time Bomb [5]. This is great for saving power in Challenges, Duos, and Missions
    • These Rotations focus on dealing heavy damage with Graviton-Charged effects. It is vital to have your enemies Graviton-Charged all the time (Singularity [4]) in order to deal great damage with Time Bomb [5], Gravitonic Field [3], Gravity Bomb [2], and Inspiral Waves [1]
  • Destabilizer Loadout is recommended for Alerts and Raids only. It deals a little more damage than Graviton-Charged Loadout but it is hard to use in Solo Situations (Challenges, Duos, or Missions)
    • This Rotation focus on dealing heavy damage with Destabilizer effects. It is vital to have your enemies Destabilized all the time (Time Shift [4]) in order to deal great damage with Time Bomb [5]Distortion Wave [3]Warp Barrage [2], and Tachyon Blast [1]

    Finally I’m trying this build but I was wondering since you gave the option of gravity bomb over TB, would it work better to use the 3 points it takes to get TB on iconic skills? If so what skills are recommended

      Hi Jeremy,

      If you dont want to unlock Tachyon Blast, you could expend them in the Iconic Tree, or some controller powers.

      I would unlock Temporal Extortion and Event Horizon (Controller Powers), or Wisdom of Solomon, Intimidating Gaze, and Powerful Resistance (Iconic Powers ordered by importance).

      Tachyon Blast is useless in melee DPS, PVP, or when you dont have a controller. However, it makes a lot of damage in range DPS and it is the most powerful Quantum attack

      Hi David thanks for letting us know we were helpful to you 🙂

  4. Hi just checked out this loadout. What rotation do you use and how do you clip? I’m cr 103 but never got the hang of clipping. I usually troll but since armories arrived I’ve created a back up dps loadout. Thanks for the guide.

    • dcuobloguide Post author

      Hi Luke, thanks for your comment. Here is the range rotation for Quantum DPS :
      Gravity Well clipped with Warped Reality -> Singularity -> Tachyon Blast -> Tachyon Blast

      If you have enough power you should be able to fulfill this rotation with no problems. However, if you are not power over time buffed, you can use Singularity clipped with Warped Reality.

  5. Hey im a dual weild type person…..Should i atleast swap out one power for a bubble since im an up close person and i need defense? And if so which one?

    • dcuobloguide Post author

      Hi Wee thanks for your comment. Most of the time DPS need to hit with melee for it dual wield makes melee AOE damage. I suggest to use your free Armory to imprint your loadout with one not spend power point, so you can unlock Time Bubble (gives protection) instead of Tachyon Blast (very helpfull at range) when you need it
