DC Universe Online: Update 9: Assemble for Battle Detailed

SBFordSBFord Former Associate EditorMember LegendaryPosts: 33,126

The DC Universe Online team has posted an outline of Update 9: Assemble for Battle. The date for the update's deployment is not available but it looks to bring some great new content and features into the game.


  • Novice Raids: Raids featuring the Fortress of Solitude, the Batcave, and the Kahndaq raids that will be available for players of all gear and skill levels.

  • Role Optional Alerts: In order to get players into raids as quickly as possible, players can opt to be informed about raid groups forming that do not require specific roles. These groups will be treated to a Team Buff:

    • If you don't have a Tank, everyone will take less damage overall. That doesn't mean you're all tanks – you'll have to work together to survive – but you'll have a fighting chance.

    • If you don't have a Healer, any Controller or Damage character will trigger a small amount of regeneration when your health dips below a certain point. If you're a Tank, you'll always have some regeneration.

    • If you don't have a Controller, everyone will get varying amounts of additional power periodically.

You can read the full Update 9 details on the DC Universe Online site.

    Cool! I love the raiding additions. I found higher end instances to be very difficult so hopefully this will help.

    they're making it easy mode? whaa?

    i remember crying to sleep while in my head  brother eye & brainiac  is laughing from my leagues failures attempt to kick his ass 10x plus times. i also remember black adam used to give us a spanking too.

     

    i'll take hardcore mode any day cause when i beat them ,it will make me feel like i'm the f'n man.

    I'm actually glad for the easier raids... the Combat Rating made it so I couldn't even participate.  Hope I can gear up this way and see the Flash content sooner or later.


    Additionally, DCUO to me, is supposed to be a casual MMO... this fits that.  :)

    Try to be excellent to everyone you meet. You never know what someone else has seen or endured.

    Really awesome move on their part. Love the addition to the alerts they're doing.  Freaking hate it when you pop into a queue and there's no healer.

    ^This. This will bring me back so I can experience the content that my gearscore, er, combat rating, won't let me do.

    They will still have the harder(43cr and 53cr) raids, they'll just have an easier tier that you can get marks of triumph from or something. Great move I believe

    The role things seem nice but i guess it replaces mah controller V.V nah im jk.

    What happens if your doing a raid and you have 1 controller/healer instead of 2? Do you get the buff then?

    So much goodies, if only they would revamp the PC UI I might give it a second chance, until then im staying away.

    I might have read wrong about the novice raids, idk. I stll want the easy ones, and hard mode.

    I just play on a ps3, it's what it's made for. :3

    And more fun ^.^

    i just started playing a couple weeks ago, its been tons of fun and im looking forward to the chance to play this update. im esp. excited about the removal of role requirements for LFG if you want. ive always thought non-trinity was far more fun.
