Research and Development Updates Bring Crafting System to DC Universe Online

on January 11, 2012 10:30 AM

When a player reaches level 10 in-game, they will now be directed to the R&D contact for their faction to gain an overview of the new system.

The new system includes Equipment Mods, which are added onto pieces a player already owns, and provide stat boosts. (I am vaguely reminded of the materia in Final Fantasy VII). Also craftable in DC Universe Online are consumable items that provide increases in health, power, and more stat boosts.

Players can now also find the ingredients and materials for their crafting projects by gathering them, snagging them from boss fights, or turning items back into materials.

The crafting/R&D system is available for download by all players: free, premium, and legendary.
