Game Update 34 is live on DCUO servers

The latest Game Update 34 comes with a handful of changes which include improvements like Green Aura, Feat Unlocking system, New Tier Vendor Equipment, Sorcery Pet Update and much more.
 
Green Aura!
It’s good to be Green! An all new Green Aura has been added to Promethium Lockboxes! The Green Aura appears like the other Auras in game and has the same drop chance.

Feat Unlocking!
Feat Unlocking is a system that will allow you to use Replay Badges to unlock feats you have already earned on your other characters. This will allow players the option to play and progress faster on multiple characters.

Unlocking your feats in-game is simple. All you’ll need to do is go the Feats Menu on the character you would like to unlock feats on, see which feats are available to unlock, and then unlock them with Replay Badges, similar to how you would unlock any other lockout in the game.
 

There are some limitations:

  • Players will not be able to unlock feats that they have not already unlocked on at least one character on the account.
  • Players will not be able to unlock feats they would not normally be able to see in the UI.
    • This means regular feat-earning rules apply. For example, a Flight character cannot unlock Acrobatics feats.
  • Players will not be able to unlock some feats that are role or alignment-specific.

New Tier Vendor Equipment!

With Game Update 34 we are adding new items to Tier 1, 2, and 4 vendors in the Watchtower and Hall of Doom. Players will be able to fill out their gear sets by purchasing this equipment using Marks of Triumph. These items are Neckpieces, Rings, Breakout Trinkets, and Weapons of all 11 types.

New HQ Map Markers!

With Game Update 34, we have added new map markers to the Watchtower and Hall of Doom! These include markers for Tier PvE, Tier PvP, Mark Conversion, and Style Vendors. Head to your HQ to check it out!

Sorcery Pet Update

Fury and Guardian pets have been given a visual and mechanical overhaul with Game Update 34! In addition to the pet updates, we’ve added a new power and reworked an old ability to provide additional pet benefits!
The Watcher and Fury pets have also been combined into a single point in the Summoning Tree and both are available upon spending this point. A new ability, Soul Barrage, has been added to the Summoning Tree where
Summon Fury used to be.

New Ability:

Soul Barrage – The ability launches 5 deadly soul projectiles at your enemies, damaging them in quick succession and knocking them down. This ability becomes available at level 8 in the Summoning tree.

Ability Update:

Offering – This is now a utility ability that applies an absorption shield to your pet in non-PvP zones as well as restores their power. Keeping your pet powered-up is important and allows them to use their potent special abilities.

Pet Updates:

Summon Guardian:

-The Guardian is now a flying Brawler.
-The Guardian’s primary function is to taunt all mobs around him, and keep them off his owner.
-The Guardian has a special taunt ability that he will use at times when his owner’s health drops below 50%.
-The Guardian’s taunt is weaker than most player ability taunts and requires power for the Guardian to cast.

Summon Fury:

-The fury is now a flying Hand Blaster.
-His primary function is to use damage abilities on his owner’s target.
-The Fury’s special abilities deal additional damage while Red Soul Aura is active.
-The Fury’s highly damaging special abilities require the owner to be in Damage Role and they require Power for the Fury to cast them.

 
Moon 5v5 PvP Map!

Battle it out in our all new Capture and Hold map, The Moon! Our new map is 5v5 and is available for both Legends and Arena PvP.

New War of the Light Part I (DLC 9) Feats!

With War of the Light Part I DLC, we introduced a new type of Bounty and Wanted mission in which players are not directed to a single Bounty or Wanted target, but rather are directed to an area where multiple Bounty or Wanted targets have a chance to appear.

These Bounties now have all new Feats for Heroes and Villains! Five in all, look under War of the Light Part I in your Feats menu for Mist Opportunity, Mist List, and Misted Menaces!

    Thanks for fixes. Have you had any problems with ps3 controllers turning off by themselves start button inventory being brought up on the screen by itself? Wanted to make sure before I bought new controller.

  2. ReadySetBoom says:

    The instances known as “Iconic Anomalies – Test Subject #1 and The Hunt” should be available for our regular characters to fight through. It’s the most original solo content in the game, yet we are left with no option other than to play with “pvp legends” charaters. To make matters worse; tough difficulty! Many of us simply miss out on this content because of this. So many things changed and implemented to make the game smoother…only wishing the updates did more for the people who play solo most of the time. –RSB

    Since long league names have been truncated, wonder if they’ll invent or permit league name change tickets. Or maybe even, league name change tokens.
