If you play DCUO for any length of time you’ll probably end up spending some money on the game. This guide translates the DCUO Marketplace into real dollars & discusses the combat value of items available to purchase (i.e. if the item affects your ability to fight while playing the game). Options / alternatives to buying from the Marketplace are provided (where possible). PC & Playstation Marketplaces are covered, though the same values should hold true on X-Box or Switch.Translating Marketplace costs to real money is not as obvious as it might seem due to two factors: discounts for Legendary members & the method used to purchase Daybreak / Marketplace cash (due to the discount for buying 10,000 or 5000 DC/MC).To the best of my knowledge all facts & figures in this guide are correct. If any errors are identified, please let me know immediately. I also do my very best to present all information and alternatives without judgment, leaving it up to the reader to determine what is the best value to them.Terms - One thing about this subject that could cause confusion is the fact that the money your character gets in game uses the same term as real money – Dollars. So to keep things clear I will refer to in-game Dollars as ‘IGD’, and I’ll use ‘$’ to refer to real money (in U.S. Dollars). We’ll also be using the terms Daybreak Cash (DC) as you see in the PC Marketplace, and Marketplace Cash (MC) for the Playstation Marketplace.Note – prices are current as of 7/7/2020 & are subject to change.
