DCUO Game Update 29 Patch Notes

With latest game update 29 players may notice the following changes:

Abductions in Metropolis and Gotham City!
Mysterious cults are abducting citizens in Gotham City and Metropolis. Track The Age of Sin Begins” in your Mission Journal to find out more.

Legends Power Cost Balance!
We have re-evaluated and balanced ability power cost across all Legends characters. The most noticeable differences will be felt when playing more recently released Legends characters, who had abilities with power costs higher than intended.

Enhanced Paradox Wave Loot!
We have enhanced the gear rewards from the Paradox Wave Raid to be more in line with the difficulty the raid presents. All items that drop from the Paradox Wave Raid have had their item levels raised from level 86 to 87, and 87 to 88 respectively. This will affect gear that players have already earned from this Raid.

    On the PS3 the access to your menus is screwed up (inventory, style, journal, etc.) Now I have to hold start to gain access to the wheel that allows me to access these menus. The reason I never used the wheel is because my game starts lagging when I do that and will sometimes freeze or I disconnect.

  3. Placed on trial for murder in connection with Zoom’s death, Allen is found guilty by the jury. When he is told by a juror, who is being possessed by a mind from the future, that Reverse Flash (who Allen knows to be dead) brainwashed the jury into this verdict, Flash flees his trial. The Flash is then attacked by Reverse Flash, and realizes that the answers to this mystery, and restoring his good name, lie in the future, so the juror uses a time device to send them forward. They discover that Abra Kadabra was disguised as Reverse Flash to ruin the Flash’s good name. Defeating Kadabra, he retreats to the future to be reunited with Iris, having learned that Iris’ spirit was in fact drawn to the 30th century, and given a new body (and was in fact the mind inhabiting the juror). The final issue of The Flash ends with Flash and Iris kissing passionately and the caption “And they lived happily ever after… for a while”. There are a few references in the final issue (The Flash #350) to the upcoming events, and Flash’s impending death.
