    U could write that ur getting tier 2 marks for making the daily hard alert (2) and the daily duo (1)


  2. Pete says:

    Very useful thanks

  3. DocBooch says:

    Nice guide thanks.

    Is the gear for the iconics favored for the particular role that they naturally are? like lex/supes = tank, joker/batman = controller, and ww/circe = healer

    I have 6 toons but my later ones arent really fit for the mentor and my favorite toons are not mentored like this

    • Yoman says:

      They are not necessarily favored for the mentor role. Of each set there is one with stats for tank, controller, and healer, or just a general armor set.

  4. Dan says:

    What would really make this better is if the values for each item were listed.

  5. Cal says:

    Really enjoying the site, keep up the good work.

    I’m confused by the imagery here. It looks like the Batman Tier 1 suit has a Superman symbol on the belt? Is that right?

    • Majin72 says:

      The Tech Origin t1 armor is patterned after Steel, that’s why it has the S-shield of Superman on the chest, belt buckle and cape. Remember, Steel patterned himself after Superman, but he’s still a normal man in a suit, thus a Tech Origin.

  6. Cal says:

    Awesome, thanks Majin

  7. marcus griffin says:

    is there any way to get a different iconic suit from a mentor that is not yours?

  8. Redemption_Server says:

    No u have to be from that “Origin” mentor and why do the villain armors look badass compared to the hero? Lol

  9. Savior Of Kittens says:

    Great article, I always forget what type/how many marks I need, so I always have this open as one of my iPod’s tab.

    Only think that could make it better was if you could post the stats of each piece, or just overall?

    Good job, thank you!

  10. kingluis13 says:

    i got a question? if i was to do some raids like the batcave what tier suit should i use?


      You need atleast 3 to 4 pieces of T1 gear if you plan to RAID, other wise your gonna get knocked out all the time and not really be of any help.

      Or just collect feats points and beef your character like crazy! You will need atleast 50 to do so with out the better armor…

  11. excessive tissue user says:

    Can the joker armour kill its user? i heard there is a bomb in it……..

  12. XD_R says:

    Well the guide is good but it needs an update. For one multiple new types of suits are available (particulary in the meta-wing) and 2 the costs have been upped. Also the Tier I think has changed since the Infiltrator suit costs influence (3400 to be exact)

  13. keith says:

    What gear is better T1 or T2 and is each type best suited for one thing more than the other, if so what’s what

  14. ipot says:

    T2 is better mate! But it also takes a lot more time to get….;S but its worth it beczuse of the nice stats and an absolute must if u want to access raids, central city and the other harder stuff 😉
    Cheers for the nice informations!

  15. Sheriff Jesse says:

    I need 53 combat rating for central city. How do I get to that number easily, or what armor will get me straight to that number?

    My current combat rating is 31

  16. egsdfhsf says:

    whats better pvp tier 1 or pve tier 1

  17. sinsouthie says:

    the archangel is a general pvp suit and not tiered. T1 started with Aegis, Raptor and Nth Metal. because these suit WERE the first suits to get with marks, not just in game cash.

  18. ReadySetBoom says:

    Will there ever be an updated version of this? Which vendors sell certain styles, as well as what types of currency will needed.

  19. bateyes says:

    well i want superman symbol so my suit complete on dcuo

  20. Dominique says:
