DC Universe Online update introduces new crafting system

Game update number eight for DC Universe Online is a big one, adding a new crafting system to SOE’s action MMO. With the Research & Development system, players can now use Equipment Mods to socket and further customize their gear. You’ll also be able to break down unused gear into materials for creating new equipment.

Players tired of DCUO’s small selection of quaff-able sodas can also look forward to crafting new, superior consumables that grant stat buffs in addition to restoring health and power (DCUO’s equivalent of mana).

You’ll need to be level 10 before you can dive into the new Research & Development system by heading to the R&D contact at the Watchtower or Hall of Doom (depending on if you’re a hero or villain).

Also added, is a new role-less mode for group combat alerts.

All in all, the new crafting features system sounds like a nice follow up to the new Spark weapons introduced in the recently released Lightning Strikes DLC.
