DC Universe Online GU94 is live with spring content and level streamlining

Spring has sprung, or more accurately it sprang a while ago and it’s finally springing into DC Universe Online today. After a lengthy downtime earlier today, Daybreak has now brought up the servers with patch notes to boot. So what’s in store?

“Poison Ivy is back to wreak havoc on the people of Gotham City! We’ve added three new Feats, new Spring-themed Base items, a new Spring-themed suit and a Blossoming Spore pet. Collect Seed Pods and purchase Spring items from Arborist Louis next to Swamp Thing in the Watchtower or The Misgiving Tree next to Poison Ivy in the Hall of Doom. Villains can learn more about Poison Ivy’s plans by speaking to her in the Hall of Doom’s Pit, while Heroes can speak to Swamp Thing in the Watchtower’s Aquacultural Area to help bring down Ivy and her minions. Speak to Veronica Cale (Villains) or Doctor Sarah Charles (Heroes) to find out more about taking on Swamp Thing. Level Requirement: 10.”

Players can also look forward to a new tier gear vendor in safehouses, multiple fresh character skins, upgraded NPC models, a new UI feature to help folks find their next mish, and a leveling content pass.

“We have made a large amount of updates and quality of life changes to early leveling content across the game,” Daybreak clarifies. “The main focus of our work was to streamline the early leveling content help players stay on track. Several changes include reducing mission objective counts, reducing damage from enemies, removing counter attacks from enemies, decreasing NPC density of combat areas for missions, better enemy placement, cleaned up text messages in missions and in instances, and adding waypoint markers to many boss instances.”
