REWARDS CHANGES

  • The Stabilizer Duo is back with increased rewards.
    • This instance returns as the primary way to earn Stabilizers and Stabilizer Fragments in-game. (If you recall, this was how Stabilizers were obtained prior to the introduction of Doctor Fate’s Daily Rewards.)
    • Rewards have been increased so that everyone is earning more than they were when Stabilizers were introduced as part of Daily Rewards.
    • Non-Members can earn 5 Stabilizer Fragments per day while Members can earn 9 Stabilizer Fragments per day.
    • Queue for the duo in your On Duty menu daily.
  • Stabilizers are no longer part of Doctor Fate’s Daily Rewards (because Stabilizers are again delivered through the duo).
    • Stabilizers can no longer be purchased weekly from Doctor Fate or Episode vendors. (This is accounted for in the duo rewards increase above.)
    • New rewards are now available instead on days 3, 8, 13, and 18.
  • Artifact XP is now account bound (meaning, you can only transfer it between your own characters on your account).
    • Before now, nearly all Artifact XP was already account bound and this corrects a small number of outliers that were flagged incorrectly as tradeable.
  • Omnibus content now has a short, five-minute loot lockout to prevent exploitation.
    • This is not expected or intended to impact anyone that is legitimately running content. Even with this lockout, content will still be unlocked before it can realistically be completed again.
    • This change is needed because it will disrupt players completing content illegitimately, who are using exploits that allow them to gain rewards too quickly.

A fair game is important to everyone. We believe these changes are necessary to maintain fairness in the game and prevent bad actors from using bots or other means to disrupt legitimate play.

Remember, you can report toxic and cheating players to our teams quickly with a short email to either toxic@dcuniverseonline.com or cheater@dcuniverseonline.

Feature Update: Omnibus & Early End Game

To further address feedback on stat scaling in the Omnibus, we’ve taken the following additional measures:

  • Normal mode EEG now has full stat piercing, which was formerly only reserved for Elite mode EEG.
  • Elite mode EEG now scales players down to +20 Combat Rating (up from +15).
  • Players being scaled up in Elite Mode EEG are now scaled an additional +10 Combat Rating.
  • Elite mode EEG now has the Early End Game buff. Unlike in Normal mode, players get full access to the buff, without any requirements on their team.
  • Down-scaled Combat Rating was fixed for Tier 6 (the latest) EEG content: it is now 337 for non-Elite mode content and 342 for Elite mode content.
  • Reduced the jump in Combat Rating between bosses to just +2 in Elite mode EEG. This includes reducing the starting NPC level for Elite content with fewer than 3 bosses, such as Fractured God Sphere in Tier 6.
  • Down-scaled players in Elite mode EEG may now block to heal.

New Feature: Trinket Base Dispenser

With this requested feature, you will be able to store your Orbital Strike, Supply Drop, Sidekick, and Henchmen trinkets in your Base Dispenser. Inventories rejoice!

  • NOTE: Any existing trinket of the types listed above must be equipped (again or for the first time) after today’s update for it to appear in the new system. That allows the Base Dispenser to know you own this item.
  • If there was a feat attached to the item and you have previously deleted the item after obtaining the feat, you will automatically see that item in your Dispenser, too.
  • The items you get from the Dispenser function the same but are technically new items that do not count towards feats AND are now account bound, so you can obtain and pass along the trinkets to your alts.
  • Moving forward, any new trinket you obtain, once you equip it and get the bind on equip prompt, will automatically qualify to appear in your Dispenser.

Nintendo Switch Small Install

As of today, the download required for DC Universe Online on Nintendo Switch is now substantially smaller (decreasing to about 16gb). Additionally, the game’s movies and motion comics will be removed from the initial download and made available separately in a free, optional Cinematics Pack DLC (about 2gb). 

Because this is an optimization adjustment to the base game, all players will be required to re-download the game. This can happen in two ways depending on where your specific space limitations.

  • If you have installed DCUO onto an SD card with at least 12gb of available, free space, the game will automatically download a patch that will essentially reinstall the base game.
  • If you have not installed DCUO onto an SD card or you do not have 12gb of free space, you will need to manually uninstall the game and then initiate the download for the new installation.

Why? Even though we are reducing the installation size dramatically, with the way NS patching works, the new patch must download completely before any changes can be made. This means you will need enough space for the current (large) installation and space for the new patch to patch automatically, which is significant since so many files are being changed.

When in doubt, the easiest way forward is to manually uninstall and then reinstall. We apologize for the inconvenience, and hope you will enjoy the free space.
