DC Universe Online Nature Power

Updated on January 27, 2011

Nature Power

The power of nature in DC Universe Online will allow your character to fill multiple roles. With the ability to draw on life to keep allies alive Nature power users are often healers. They also specialize in Damage Over Time attacks, and can turn into various animals to fulfill their needs. Nature branches off in the following ways: Shapeshifting & Plants.

As Shapeshifting allows you a more 'Jack-of-all-Trades' approach, and is vastly different to Plants, some perks and percentage increases vary depending on your skill specialization, I will go through this below.

Healing - As a Healer using Nature Powers, all damage you cause is penalised by 35%. However, all Health restoration and damage prevention effects you trigger are increased by 60%.

PVP - While in Healing role or Insectoid form, you have an advantage against Ice and Fire power users. Your super powers completely negate their generally impenetrable defences, allowing you to make them weak and vulnerable to attacks. Attacking them may also inspire Confidence within you, which will briefly increase your damage by 100%.

Shapeshifting

Nature powers allow you to shift into beast forms. You will experience the rage of a gorilla, the cunning and savagery of a wolf, or the hive mind of an insect. Abilities and movement powers change with each form, allowing you to adapt to each situation and terrain.

If you choose Shapeshifting as your path, you will be granted with +1% critical attack chance and +5% critical healing magnitude.
