With all due respect to role-players and fashionistas, stats make the character in an RPG. From Dungeons & Dragons' six core stats to the sometimes overwhelming multitude of numbers in modern MMORPGs, stats are, to a degree, the most important things in any game.
When a game designer, in any field, decides to completely re-design its character stats system, it's not a decision that's made lightly -- but that's what's happening today in DC Universe Online.
The DCUO Stats Revamp changes "all numbers in the game and a major update to gameplay balance, combat, and progression." Everything is new: new player stats, new skill trees, new power trees, new NPC stats, and all powersets have been updated, with the goal of providing a new foundation for character progression. The Nature powerset even lets you summon puppies!
It's a lot to absorb, whether you're still actively playing DCUO or are looking to come back after a long time away. In either case, you'll have a lot of adjustment to do to keep up with all the changes. Read about them on the DCUO site.
