DC Universe Online Gadgets Power

Updated on January 27, 2011

Gadgets Power

Those with the Gadgets Power in DC Universe Online will find themselves pulling all manner of devices out of their pockets. Gadget characters are crafty, and use strategically placed gadgets to achieve victory. The gadgeteer has two unique paths they can follow: Tricks & Traps.

Controller – Gadgets Power is considered a ‘controller’ style of play. In this role you will gain 350 Vitalization, and your Dominance will increase by 65%. The strength of all your Controller effects is also significantly magnified.

PVP – As a Controller, you have a special advantage versus Nature and Sorcery users. When you target them with your super powers you heavily reduce their ability to heal. Attacking them may also inspire you with Confidence, which will briefly increase your damage by 70%.
