Intuitive Update Heading For DC Universe Online
DC Universe has experience a massive increase on population in recent months, mainly down to the transfer over to the free to play revenue model, but we’ve also got to give SOE a bit of credit as they’re still pumping out the updates. This latest update includes some really fresh approaches to dealing with the common issues that plague today’s MMORPG games.
The most exciting aspect of the update is the new Role Alerts system. This system will allow parties that don’t have a specific role, such as a tank or healer, to be given certain buffs that help fill the gap. As an example, groups without a healer will all trigger a HoT spell once they reach a certain percentage of HP, and groups without a tank, will gain a boost in their defensive stat.
Other features in the update include new Novice Raids, these new raids will allow players of all skill and gear levels to participate in new Raid Scenarios such as the Fortress of Solitude and the iconic, Batcave.
