While DCUO doesn’t have much in the way of a nice early or mid game, comprised only of quest hubs filled to the brim with fetch and kill quests, with a neat little “episodic” type story for each, it’s end game is a stark difference. DCUO truly begins when you reach the proper level cap of 30. This is because gear progression is the biggest and best experience DCUO has to offer aside from the robust end game episodes of PvE and the blood-pumping action of PvP.
Redeem Code: DCUO Gear Progression
Farming Marks of Victory will be your primary purpose of existence because these commendations enable you to purchase gear of higher combat rating. In turn, having a higher combat rating will enable you to have the ability to purchase Iconic sets with even higher combat rating from certain NPCs.
Surely, you could always just opt to try and get lucky with gear drops from solo challenges, duos, or 4 man dungeons. However, this can be difficult due to fickle RNG, rolling against other players in 4 mans, or just being downright unlucky with your personal loot drops. It’s entirely possible that, for your entire itinerary for the day, you actually get nothing useful to upgrade your Combat Rating. This has happened to me and has happened to at least 90% of DCUOs avid playerbase.
With the changes to purchasing gear costs, the price for these progression gear have all but increased when compared to DCUO’s incarnation back in its earlier years. A single piece, especially early-mid game gear of CR 70, can cost a huge amount of marks just to purchase a single piece. With a cap of 100 Marks of Victory, you can’t exactly earn a shit-ton in a period of time and then suddenly splurge right there and then.
Early in the end game, you won’t be able to find much to do for dailies for these marks due to the lack of stuff you can do. With everything gated behind a Combat Rating wall, the hardcore player will inevitably finish everything they can do in a day and still may not even be close to moving their CR due to bad drops.
Consolation to this is that, as you get stronger, you also unlock the right to play newer episodes in the DCUO story that is lifted from great and fantastic storylines like Blackest Night. It’s a great incentive for the DC fandom to keep on their progression, but may not be so much for regular MMO players.
Redeem Code: Tons of DCUO Tiers
Then again, with a crap ton of raids averaging 4 per tier (with 7 tiers), the progression raider fanatics out there will certainly have a lot to do. Remember that there isn’t a “catch up” mechanic in DCUO like there is in SWTOR or WoW, and you have to play ALL the tiers just to get to the current tier of 7. If anything, this should appeal to the hardcore WoW players that don’t like their hands being held.
Take what you will of this info, but it’s in my opinion that, while it’s not the greatest end game, DCUO knows how to keep their playerbase busy.
