One of the biggest things that MMORPGs have to do is grow and evolve. For if they stay stagnant, if there’s nothing new to do or earn or learn, then players will not want to play the game anymore. For DC Universe Online, they’ve taken this to heart by not just adding something to the game, but adding something that changes the way you can increase your characters power and abilities. And it all ties into a classic DC Comics character and location.
The new items are called Artifacts, and as revealed on the Steam Page for DC Universe Online, these are rare items that you can collect and fortify to not only make yourself stronger, but to visit new locations. In this case, you’ll get to visit Oblivion Bar, a magical place between dimensions that is often frequented by magic users in the DCU. Here, you’ll get to meet John Constantine, who will help you on your journey to make your artifacts more powerful.
Once you get an Artifact, you’ll have to use Reagent items to build them up and then rank them up. There are a few catches though. You must be a Level 20 player to be able to use these and travel to Oblivion Bar, and also, once your Artifact reaches a certain rank, you’ll have to use special Catalyst items to build them up even higher.
As for how to get these items, you can get them through Instances within the game itself. Or, you can try and get them from John Constantine himself by speaking to him in the Hall of Doom and the Justice League Watchtower. But be warned, he’s a con man, so it may not be as easy as you think it’ll be.
