Tinkering with Unwanted Gear - R&D Gear System Announced

Tinkering with Unwanted Gear - R&D Gear System Announced - DC Universe Online -

The DC Universe Online site has been updated with a first look at a new system that will be coming to the game: R&D Gear. Essentially, the R&D Gear System is an expansion of the existing R&D feature and gives players the opportunity to salvage unwanted gear and to use components gained to enhance gear via R&D Plans.

The R&D Gear System expands the existing R&D and salvage systems to offer a new, complementary progression path to the same rare gear found in large group content. The system does not replace playing content for drops - playing content for dropped gear remains the primary means to progress beyond vendor gear - but it does add an alternative, slower, and guaranteed path to rare gear for those losing the battle with randomness.

With the R&D Gear System, every drop matters - every drop is progress - and you are no longer fully at the mercy of random luck. In time, if you have not found the gear you want, you have the power to build it yourself.

Read more about the R&D Gear System, including an explanation about why this is incoming and a short FAQ, on the DC Universe Online forum.
