    Base Stats
    Ref: Legends Character Stats and Power Descriptions
    (Transcribed here with shiny mackerel's permission)

    All characters have the same stats aside from health, which is adjusted from the baseline of 9828 HP. From there, health can be above or below by 5%, 10%, 15%, and so on. The rest of the stats are listed:
    • 1000 Power
    • 0 Defense and Toughness
    • Level dependent on actual character level
    • 35% Damage Buff
    • 0 Might, Restoration, Vitalization
    • 166.2 DPS
    • 396 Precision
    • 10% Critical Weapon Attack Chance
    • 5% Critical Ability, Power, Heal Chance
    • 0% Critical Weapon, Ability, Power, Heal Magnitude
    Characters with melee weapons gain an additional +15% critical weapon damage and +20% control resistance with a few exceptions.
    Bane and Atrocitus receive no melee weapon buff but instead gain Supercharge quicker and on knockouts.

    The power descriptions here give base numbers, so actual numbers you see in-game depend on character stats. I'll only summarize how to figure out actual numbers from stats, so see this guide for more detail and how to test for these stats.

    Armor
    Legends characters have no armor. They gain defense or toughness only by blocking, which puts them at the 75% mitigation cap (no longer depending on level). However blocking is currently bugged and actually mitigates 93-94% damage from other players. Against NPCs, blocking still mitigates 75% damage.

    Power
    Characters have 0 Vitalization, so actual power restoration = base power restoration.
    An ability that restores 100 base power will restore 100 power.

    Healing
    Characters have 0 Restoration, so actual healing = base healing.
    An ability that heals 100 base health will heal 100 health.

    Damage
    All characters start out with a 35% damage modifier that can be changed through buffs/debuffs.
    Then without buffs, all damage out is multiplied by 135%.

    Ability Damage
    Characters have 0 Might, so actual damage = base damage * 135%.
    An ability that deals 330-450 (390) base damage will deal 445-607 (526) damage to another character.

    Weapon Damage
    Characters have 166.2 DPS, so it gets a bit messy figuring out weapon damage from the base damage multipliers. For convenience, this guide already reports base damage as (Weapon Damage Multiplier * 166.2 DPS). So then actual damage = base damage * 135%.
    An ability that deals 420-495 (457.5) base weapon damage will deal 567-668 (617) damage to another character.

    Weapon combo damage is not listed here yet but stats for the standard weapons can be found here. Stats for unique weapons like Catwoman's MA or unique moves like Lex's Power Blast will be added later.

    Counter Damage
    Counter damage is explained at the bottom of this post here.
    Characters have 396 precision so blocks, interrupts, and block breakers deal a total of 416-436 (426) base weapon damage.
    With the 35% damage modifier, this becomes 561-588 (575) damage.

    Critical Effects
    Critical chance bonuses add directly to the base.
    A buff of +12% critical weapon chance would give the character a total of 22% critical weapon chance.

    Critical magnitude bonuses add directly to the base of 0%.
    A buff of +15% critical weapon damage would give the character a total of 15% critical weapon damage.

    Pets
    All NPCs in Legends have 15% base armor. So damage to pets will be reduced by 15%.

    Pets have no damage modifier and their damage (orange numbers) can't crit. So actual pet damage = base pet damage.
    An ability that deals 200-219 (209.5) pet damage will deal 200-219 (209.5) damage to Legends characters and 170-186 (178) damage to other NPCs.

    Power Descriptions
    Basic power descriptions can be found in tooltips in-game or more accurately in Bulthax's guide. My guide assumes familiarity with characters and only focuses on the stats.

    The format:

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Like many members of the Light family, Amon Sur is dirt simple to use and has high, sustainable damage output for all situations. Very similar to Sinestro.

    Weapon(s)
    Martial Arts

    Power Analysis
    1. Light Claws - This is your bread and butter power and you'll be spamming it quite a bit.
    2. Ram - Hard-hitting tight-conal AoE with massive range, ideal for hitting two targets in a straight line that are far apart from one another. This also has excellent AoE burst potential and is good for clearing trash quickly.
    3. Construct Whirlwind - Short-range toolkit power only useful in extremely specific circumstances. Only use this when there are 3-8 targets clustered together and when your Breakout Trinket is available to cancel the extremely long animation (you still get all the damage ticks). The first tick of damage an enemy takes from this, no matter how long the cast has been active, will be for 330-450 damage. Also, though the only way you can cancel this is with Breakout Trinket, you can move around while casting by jumping, effectively getting the major damage tick on a large number of spread out enemies and making the power much more user friendly.
    4. Shatter - Never use this. Does poor damage relative to the cast time, vulnerable to interrupt, and high power cost.
    5. Nightmare Construct - Flavour power only. Never use this. It's not worth the time/power to cast and even if it lands every hit while it's out, its damage is mediocre. The power is better used elsewhere.
    6. Swoop Attack - Effective, low-cost, conal pbAoE and excellent mobility enhancer (see Movement Capabilities).

    Important Rotations
    ST & Close-Range AoE:
    Light Claws (full combo)(clipped with)>Repeat

    Note: Once low on power and with Soder on cooldown, begin clipping this onto the end of your Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold) combo. Be sure to always clip the final Claw Slash as soon as its animation starts to maximize output.

    Optional Boss Variant:
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Ram>Repeat

    Note: This will only outperform Light Claw spam if you're fighting a boss where you can reliably stand on their head throughout the engagement (most bosses allow this) in order to benefit from the increased attack speed. Once low on power, start switching between Ram and Light Claw combo as required to sustain output. Can also be done with Cartwheel Kick:


    Burst AoE:
    (Lunge to initiate)>Construct Whirlwind (clipped with)>Breakout Trinket>Ram>continue using Ram until everything is dead or you're out of power

    Note: If targets are spread out on the battlefield, try to aim your Ram so that it hits as many as possible.

    Sustained Crowd Control:
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Swoop Attack>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Ram>Repeat

    Note: This will allow you to reliably & safely solo the largest number of enemies at a time by virtue of maintaining solid DPS output while constantly knocking everything down throughout your rotation.

    Arkham Asylum Joker
    10320 HP

    → The knockbacks hit 10 targets in a field.
    (4) Barrel of Laughs300 power105 sec CD
    Summons 3 melee/ranged goon pets that last 40 seconds each. Each Joker Goon has 683 HP.
    (5) Backflip125 power3 sec CDUsable while controlled Dodgeable

    → Hits 3 targets in a cone without splitting (Knockdown).
    → Dodge (2 sec).
    (6) Equip Pistols/Equip Machete
    → Changes weapon to Dual Pistols or One Handed.

    Notes
    → Using Equip Pistols/Equip Machete resets your Supercharge level.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    In general, don't use Arkham Asylum Joker in LPVE. He's potentially advantageous for certain maps but there are arguably always much better choices. For most LPVE purposes, The Joker is slightly below average and Arkham Asylum Joker is slightly worse. Unless you only care about the cool tattered straightjacket or the derpy (and inconsistent) Bouncy Blast SC, use The Joker (if you have to for Team-Up feats).

    Weapon(s)
    Dual Pistol, One Handed

    Power Analysis
    1. Get Back - Good non-split AoE but with a very short range. One of only two direct DPS powers at our disposal.
    2. Clown Box - Almost never useful but can be handy to save yourself while group members get close enough for group heal to kick in again. Try to avoid using this.
    3. Bouncy Blast - Far less useful and effective than it seems on paper. Only use this against clumps of adds or very large bosses, as the chaotic nature of the bounces ensures a single, normal-sized target is unlikely to take much damage from this 2500SC power.
    4. Barrel of Laughs - Good damage:cost ratio, assuming the pets survive full duration and this can be clipped onto other powers. Save this for boss fights.
    5. Backflip - Excellent low-cost power but the distance it creates between you and your target can sometimes be a problem in LPVE.
    6. Equip Pistols/Equip Machete - Though Pistols seems like it would be able to compensate for the range issues created by Backflip, Machete is capable of over 25% greater DPS. Stick with Machete (ie. One Handed).

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose:
    Flurry (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Backflip>Quick Chop (hold)>Repeat
    Note: Only slightly less damage than the balls-out rotation below but much simpler and power-neutral.

    And the Kitchen Sink:
    Flurry (clipped with)>Backflip (clipped with)>Barrel of Laughs (see note)>Flurry (clipped with)>Get Back>Flurry (clipped with)>Backflip (clipped with)>Soder Cola (see note)>Flurry (clipped with)>Get Back>Flurry (clipped with)>Backflip (clipped with)>Breakout Trinket (see note)>Flurry (clipped with)>Get Back>Repeat

    Note: Only go clip-happy with Barrel of Laughs, Soder Cola, and Breakout Trinket like this during boss fights. For regular adds, do the rotation normally but without clipping Backflip. Once you're out of things to clip Backflip with, try to keep yourself positioned such that you'll Backflip into a solid object nearby to ensure all of your Flurry swings make contact (you can do this by jumping during Get Back and trying to put yourself between the boss and a wall, as you see me do in the video).

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Much more hands on than other Light characters but just as potent and fun to use. His kit is capable of dishing out massive AoE damage quickly without sacrificing ST DPS. Plays very similarly to Kilowog.

    Weapon(s)
    Brawling

    Power Analysis
    1. Construct Jackhammer - Since every non-boss LPVE mob can be CC'd by every character, this isn't as effective as Earth's Jackhammer. That said, it's still very effective at putting out a lot of pbAoE damage quickly over a large area... especially in tight spaces or if you have adds pinned against a wall/corner... just don't overdo it as you'll quickly knock most targets out of range and this consumes a lot of power quickly. Do not use Construct Jackhammer for ST DPSing; its DPS is ~3% lower than a proper ST rotation but its power consumption is through the roof.
    2. Saw Throw - Solid non-split ranged AoE damage on a short CD. When the description says "in a line" though, it really means it. The targets have to be very close together, so this will primarily find use in ST rotations
    3. Spike Clap - No real reason to use this over Saw Throw ever
    4. Ring Beam - Solid finisher attack. Once the boss' health drops below 35%, you'll be clipping this after every combo.
    5. Battle Roar- Superb and power efficient non-split damage. Good for both ST and AoE but the long CD means you'll just be substituting it in for other powers when available if multiple targets are present. This power cannot be clipped.
    6. Swoop Attack - Solid damage for a low power cost and a mobility enhancer (see Movement Capabilities).

    Important Rotations
    Boss ST:
    Backfist (tap hold hold)(clipped with)>Swoop Attack>Backfist (clipped with)>Saw Throw>Repeat

    Note: As with all Brawling characters, your output is chiefly dependent on how early and effectively you clip the final hit of Backfist. You'll want to time the clip for a split second after Arkillo's fists reach full travel and are just starting to bounce back forwards.

    Boss ST/AoE Variant:
    Same as above but with Battle Roar substituted whenever available

    Note: Slightly better additional targets are near/behind your intended target

    Low-On-Power Variant:

    Note: ~5% less damage and more annoying to do than standard Boss ST rotation but power-neutral. If you're bottomed out on power, try doing a rotation or two of this until you can resume standard Boss ST then switch back and forth as required.

    Notes

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Atrocitus is one of the weaker members of the Light family in LPVE, the weakest Light villain, and generally not worth using aside from team-up feats. He's best suited for clearing large groups of adds at a steep power cost. His ST boss performance is below average.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Rage Flail - This attack has max range, hits in a wide cone, and the stun is good for setting up follow-on attacks
    2. Ire Stomp - Not as effective as it sounds like it would be. The AoE and pull is relatively short range.
    3. Rage Expulsion - By far his best power. Non-split conal pbaoe for above average damage. Unfortunately, the 6s cd prevents this from giving Atrocitus the boost he needs.
    4. Plasma Pool - High cost and low damage but necessary to buff his other powers. Unfortunately, it's not possible to keep the PI up even 2/3 of the time.
    5. Furious Lunge - Due to the short range on this power's AoE, the non-split isn't particularly impressive.
    6. Rage of the Butcher - The speed with which his SC builds is Atrocitus' only real advantage. Up to you whether you want to save for boss fights or not, as it's even more useful for clearing adds.
    A. Raging Roar - This is effectively a large-area pbaoe that hits as hard as 3 normal powers in 3s for the price of one. You'll only be able to use this once per SC.

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose:
    Backfist (tap hold hold)(clipped with)>Plasma Pool>Backfist (clipped with)>Rage Expulsion>Backfist (clipped with)>Furious Lunge>Backfist (clipped with)>Rage Flail>Backfist (clipped with)>Rage Expulsion>Backfist (clipped with)>Furious Lunge>Repeat
    Note: For large group of adds, consider simply starting with Plasma Pool then dumping all your power. You can pop your SC anytime you want for a large DPS gain on that rotation.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Bane is a strategically interesting character whose overall LPVE performance depends upon proper SC use. Before first SC use, his ST performance is slightly below average, after first SC use, his performance is average to above average, and upon third sequential SC use he achieves one of the best SC LPVE performances in the game and can maintain that for an entire boss fight and beyond. Very fun and capable character overall.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Ground Slam - Solid non-split pbAoE with good range but with a massive dovetail and high cost
    2. Battle Roar - Excellent for clearing trash mobs but not useful for bosses (lowers ST rotation DPS)
    3. Seismic Slam - Do not use this power offensively! Pop it immediately after combat so you can enter movement mode right away (see Movement Capabilities)
    4. Crushing Lunge - Important staple of Bane's ST rotation. This power's cooldown is reduced while under the effects of Venom Up
    5. Venom Up - Pop your Venom Up (First Use) SC the second the meter is full, whether you're in combat or not! This unlocks the much more important Venom Up (Second Use) meter. Then, save Venom Up (Second Use) for boss fights, once full. Rinse and repeat that cycle for each boss.
    A. Grapple Line - Same ST damage as Crushing Lunge but cheaper and adds a better second clip to our SC rotation, allowing us to clip sooner and increase ST DPS dramatically
    6. Venom Clap - Use this every time it's up in every content. One of the best powers in Legends.

    Important Rotations
    Pre-Venom Up or Venom Up (First Use) ST:
    Backfist (tap hold hold)(clipped with)>Venom Clap>Backfist (clipped with)>Crushing Lunge>Backfist (clipped with)>Ground Slam>Repeat


    Note: Always clip with Venom Clap whenever it's available. When able (and when you'll get the value from them), clip Ground Slam with Soder/Breakout to avoid the long animation.

    Low-Cost Venom Up (First Use) Variant: (Avoid having to do this!)

    Note: Way less damage but easier on power consumption., Only recommended if hurting for power. Can also switch to Haymaker combo while doing this if realty desperate for power.

    Venom Up (Second Use): (Save this for bosses)
    Backfist>Venom Clap>Backfist>Grapple Line>Backfist>Crushing Lunge>Repeat

    Note: Same concept as Pre-Venom Up and Venom Up (First Use) rotation but much lower power cost thanks to Grapply Line and muuuch higher DPS due to the faster animations. One of the best ST rotations in LPVE.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Batman has below average AoE potential but well above average ST and provides the group with a valuable buff. Becomes more potent when teamed with Robin. A bit twitchy to play effectively, especially when dealing with large groups.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Swarm of Bats - Good non-split 360 pbAoE but melee range only
    2. Explosive Batarang - Decent for ST and AoE but very slow to get its damage out and the AoE is only a short range around your target
    3. Grapple Line - Superb ST attack
    4. Forward Flip - Superb ST attack
    5. Stealth - Useful offensively but can be hard to take advantage of if you're holding hate with your DPS
    1. Surprise Attack - The only Stealth power worth using. High damage boost to your rotation if you can get it off
    2. Cuff 'em - Not worth using in LPVE
    3. Sleep Batarang - Not worth using in LPVE
    6. Activate Bat Drone - Save this for boss fights. Excellent for restoring group power and buffing DPS

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose:
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Forward Flip>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Grapple Line>Repeat
    Note: When dealing with multiple targets that are close together (eg. most of the Trigon's Prison boss fights), clip with Swarm of Bats and Explosive Batarang whenever they're available as long as your power allows. Clip with Stealth>Surprise Attack whenever available. During boss fights, pop Activate Bat Drone w/e available. Jump during Grapple Line to try to stay on top of your target to dramatically increase your attack speed. This can also be done with Cartwheel Kick substituted for Elbow Drop:

    AoE:
    For AoE, either focus individual targets or do Tornado Kick>Smoke Bomb clipped with your AoE powers:

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    A well above average and extremely tanky bruiser who's fun to play and has some interesting nuances.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Overhead Smash - Low cost melee-range conal pbAoE. The animation can be immediately tap cancelled with no ill effect.
    2. Jump Spash - Generally only worth using while controlled. The high cost and extremely long animation make this a very lackluster attack.
    3. Annihilate - Arguably Bizarro's best attack. However, do not do anything until the animation is complete or there's a good chance you'll cancel several of the damage ticks.
    4. Swoop Attack - Effective, low-cost, short-range conal pbAoE and an effective mobility buff (see Movement Capabilities).
    5. Freeze Vision - Only worth using in rare circumstances when target can't be meleed (eg. If Evil Star lives long enough to fly up to the ceiling, which he shouldn't anyways).
    6. Heat Breath - Same as Freeze Vision but with a bit more AoE utility. Avoid using this, as it'll hurt your DPS.

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose:
    Backfist (tap hold hold)(clipped with)>Annihilate>Backfist (clipped with)>Swoop Attack>Repeat
    Note:
    You can substitute Overhead Smash for Swoop Attack if you'd prefer with no change to DPS or power consumption (but slightly harder to use as you have to insta-cancel Overhead Smash every time).If you get low on power and Soder is down, use the High Efficiency Variant below.

    High Efficiency Variant:
    Backfist (clipped with)>Swoop Attack>Backfist (clipped with)>Overhead Smash (tap cancel)>Repeat
    Note: Only slightly less damage than the BiS variant above. Overhead Smash feels a little awkward at fist, since you can start your next Backfist as soon as the animation start, but not bad once you get used to it.

    → Teth Adam can recover Supercharge, but it will reset upon return to Black Adam form.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    An average DPS on par with Shazam. Fun fact: All of the Egyptian gods that grant Black Adam his abilities are represented in the character design. The names and effect of 5/6 of the gods can be found in his power tray (ie. Shu, Heru, Mehen, Aton, and Zehuti). The 6th god, Amon, is the god that grants him his super strength, allowing him to lift and weaponize heavy objects.

    Weapon(s)
    Brawling, Martial Arts (Teth Adam form)

    Power Analysis
    1. Zephyr of Shu - Black Adam's best power and a max-range conal pbAoE
    2. Heru's Escape - Only use this if you're doing a power dump rotation or trying to lose aggro. Jump after cancel the backwards leap in order to stay in range for your next combo. This can be clipped onto other powers.
    3. Curse of Mehen - Not worth using in LPVE.
    4. Zehuti's Judgment - Effective 360 pbAoE pull but long cooldown,
    5. Aton's Volley - Black Adam's second best power.
    6. Shazam! - You're unlikely to fill Black Adam's SC meter in a good LPVE run; if you fill the meter, you're probably having a pretty bad time in general.
    1. Lunging Strike - Normal power damage and doesn't split.
    2. Tornado Kick - Tornado Kick, Power Punch, and Kick are all effectively the same and can be used as a clip in between Lunging Strikes.
    3. Power Punch - See Tornado Kick
    4. Khandaqi Smokebomb - Not worth using in LPVE.
    5. Backflip Kick - Only use if there are lots of targets clumped together. Low damage but no split.
    6. Kick -See Tornado Kick

    Note: In most circumstances, you'll be out of power well before Zehuti's Judgment is ready again but Trigon's Prison has such a high volume of CC, interrupts, and boss PVP that it's sustainable.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    One of only two characters with Claw as weapon type. Catwoman is well above average in both DPS and tankiness and effective in both ST and AoE situations.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Whip Pull - Good pull for setting up trash mobs and excellent in ST rotation
    2. Cat Swipe - High damage but long animation. This can be clipped with Smoke Cloud, Soder, or Breakout with no ill effect.
    3. Whip Flurry - Above average conal pbAoE with excellent range. For ST, animation is much faster if on top of your opponent's head.
    4. Smoke Cloud - Clippable reflect effect. Save this for clipping Cat Swipe.
    5. Backflip - An excellent attack but it puts you out of range for follow-up combos, so avoid it unless your back is to a wall and you won't position yourself out of the fight.
    6. Stealth - Pop this every time it's ready and try to get a Surprise Attack off.
    1. Surprise Attack - Large damage spike. Difficult to pull off if you're the top DPS, as you'll be tanking
    2. Sleep Dart - Not worth using in LPVE.

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose:
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Cat Swipe (clipped with)>Smoke Cloud>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Whip Flurry>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Whip Pull>Repeat (see note)

    Note: Try to land Stealth>Surprise Attack whenever it's ready. Always try to clip Cat Swipe with either Smoke Cloud, Breakout, or Soder. Try to stay on your opponents head to gain a large attack speed increase (including faster Whip Flurry animation). You can jump and move during Whip Pull and Cat Swipe but you can't jump during Whip Flurry. This rotation's actual output is higher than what you see here because Smoke Cloud will always deal max damage LPVE where vs the training dummy it does 0 damage (it's also much easier to stay on top of bosses than it is training dummy when using Claw).

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    The other Claw character and unfortunately one of the worst picks for LPVE, if not the worst. Built for dueling, her damage absorption and Berzerker mechanic are practically useless in LPVE where the group heal makes the former redundant and prevents the latter. She has to pull out all the stops to even come close to what other characters can do casually, DPS wise. If you need a Truth Villain, pick Circe.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Rake - High damage but an extremely long animation. Try to clip this with Soder or Breakout
    2. Poisoned Slash - Decent damage and a much shorter animation time. Arguably her best attack.
    3. Feral Lunge - Average pure ST damage on a slow animation.
    4. Tendon Cut - Average pbAoE damage on a slow animation. You can prevent the animation from moving you too far from your target by jumping after you use this.
    5. Blood Curse - A non-clippable shield/reflect effect. Virtually useless in LPVE.
    6. Blood Sacrifice - Cheetah's hardest hitting attack, but vulnerable to interrupt.

    Important Rotations
    Note: I'm not gonna sugercoat this, Cheetah is just straight bad in LPVE as it's virtually impossible to take advantage of her Berserker trait. At peak performance, you'll be dealing 10-50% less than what other chatacters can do.

    General Purpose:
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Rake (see note)>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Poisoned Slash>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Rake (see note)>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Tendon Cut (see note)>Repeat

    Note: Always try to clip Rake with Breakout or Soder to eliminate the long animation. Jump during Tendon Cut in order to move freely and prevent the animation from moving you out of range for your next combo. Use Blood Sacrifice once your target is below 25% health but if you have hate, be careful to only use it when you have immunity. Try to stay on top of your target's head for a large attack speed increase.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Very simple rotations combined with a shield and a massive damage teleport/detaunt make Circe an excellent and versatile pick for any map but she's a bit thirsty (for power).

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Will of Circe - Virtually the only ST power worth using
    2. Wrath of Ages - Virtually the only AoE power worth using
    3. Mirror Image - Teleports you forward, detaunts, and summons a mirror image that explodes for massive damage. Use this whenever it's off CD.
    4. Bestiamorph - Not worth using in LPVE.
    5. Summon: Bestiamorph Berserker - Never use this. Even if it does survive the entire duration (it won't), its damage:cost ratio is utterly atrocious.
    6. Aegis of Immortality - Only use this when you need to skip a large section of the map, as it will prevent you from being knocked out of fast movement mode.

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose ST:
    Uppercut (tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Mirror Image>Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>
    Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>Uppercut (clipped with)>Will of Circe>Repeat

    Note: Once out of power, either simply continue to spam Uppercut and clip when able or spam Arcane Blast (ranged-tap ranged-tap ranged-tap ranged-hold) or Pulse Beam (ranged-tap ranged-tap ranged-hold) until you've regained some power. Arcane Blast and Pulse Beam spam both bave higher non-clipped DPS than Uppercut but you'll likely have boss hate, so you may be better off sticking to Uppercut.

    General Purpose AoE:
    Solar Flame (ranged-hold ranged-tap)(clipped with)>[Mirror Image>Solar Flame (clipped with)>Wrath of Ages>Repeat portion in square brackets until out of power]

    Note: Once out of power, simply stick to Solar Flame spam, clipping when able. You can also substitute Power Discharge or Fist Slam for Solar Flame at close range.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    An above average character and one of the most complex and fun to play. Performing well with Deathstroke requires that you understand the flow of his power combos as well as their respective dmg:cost ratios and that you be able to adjust your rotation for the situation.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Concussive Grenade - A decent 360 pbAoE with a very large area and a reasonable power cost
    2. Sniper Shot - An effective ranged finisher. This can be countered but as soon as you activate this the damage will go off after a set amount of time. You can jump to unlock your movement (slightly) during the cast. You can clip this with soder or breakout trinket. Sometimes fails to hit target.
    3. Onslaught - A high damage melee power combo with a steep power cost. To do the combo do a melee-hold after initiating the power.
    4. Shock Staff - Above average damage 360 pbAoE but steep power cost. Generally not worth using in LPVE.
    5. Backflip Burst - A high-efficiency combo power with good damage. To do the combo, do a ranged-hold at about the point of the backflip where you're completely upside down (the timing is important but it's easy once you get used to it). Grenade (combo) can hit targets beyond red reticle range.
    6. Covert - Stealth mode but unlike with other characters, it only partially alters your tray.
    4. Skilled Sword - (Actually in the 4th loadout slot) Use this when fighting multiple targets, as the damage doesn't split.
    5. Surprise Attack - (Actually in the 5th loadout slot) Use this when fighting a single target.
    6. Cuff 'em - (Actually in the 6th loadout slot) Do not use this in LPVE.

    Important Rotations
    General Note: Doing well with Deathstroke is a matter of adjusting your burn rate and power consumption for the situation at hand. Early on, you want to sit in "cruise control" dealing decent damage without chewing up your power too quickly. Near the very end of a boss fight, you can throw whatever you've got left out very quickly.

    Cruise Control: Best compromise of dmg:cost over a prolonged encounter. Average damage but sustainable
    Flurry (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Concussive Grenade (see note)>Flurry (clipped with)>Backflip Burst (full combo)>Repeat
    Note: Clip Concussive Grenade with Covert and either Skilled Sword or Surprise Attack (situationally dependent) whenever available. Try to only clip Soder onto Concussive Grenade, not Backflip Burst. If you do need to clip onto Backflip Burst, make sure you do it after the combo grenade has been fired.

    Afterburners: Max DPS but you'll go from max power to empty in less than 30s. Mostly for squishies and trash adds.
    Flurry (clipped with)>Onslaught (full combo)(clipped with)>Concussive Grenade>Repeat

    Note: Clip Covert onto either the Onslaught combo or Concussive Grenade whenever it's available.

    General Note: Maximize your overall output by finding the right compromise between those two extremes for the situation at hand while remembering to leave enough gas in the tank to do Sniper Shots below 35%. In general, you'll want to spend most of the time in Cruise Control. It's rare you'll have enough juice left to go full Afterburner, as your power requirements will increase when you introduce Sniper Shot into the equation at low boss health.

    Example of a Variable Flow Rotation: You can see here how quickly you can switch from "sustainable combat" to "total max DPS power dump," so don't feel rushed.

    Sentinel of Justice: Edifying Chant
    → Deals 5 ticks of 10-30 pet damage (1 sec/tick) for a total of 50-150 (100) pet damage.
    → Reduces damage of affected enemies by 7% (6 sec).
    → Hits 8 targets in a field and splits after 2 (Ground).
    → Increases maximum health of pet owner by 1500 HP (6 sec).
    → Edifying Chant's damage stacks, but not its HP buff or damage debuff.
    Notes
    → Only one Sentinel pet may be summoned at a time.
    → Circle of Judgment stacks with itself, but not with Edifying Chant.
    → Circle of Judgment would reduce a 35% damage modifier to 25%. 2 Circles would reduce it to 15%. Likewise, 2 Circles of Judgment would increase max health by 3000 HP.
    → When max health changes, % HP stays constant. At 1200/1500 HP, a +1500 max HP buff would change your health to 2400/3000 HP. The lower your % HP, the less you gain from the health buff.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Much like Cheetah, Doctor Fate's kit simply doesn't translate well to LPVE. His schtick is that he buffs the health of the group and lowers the attack of your enemies, which is great in LPVP but pretty useless in LPVE where the group heal makes both effects redundant and pointless. To top this all off, he doesn't actually even have a rotational flow so he has a very derpy & wrong-feeling PVE playstyle. If you need an Arcane Hero, go with Shazam because Doctor Fate is one of the weakest LPVE picks on par with Cheetah (but with better AoE potential).

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Fateful Blast - "Fate"ful… Ha! Get it?! Anyways this is a decent enough ST attack but it's long CD prevents it from really saving Fate's DPS rotation.
    2. Cleansing Blast - This is actually a really fantastic attack but it's again hampered by a terribly long CD. Contrary to initial appearances, the area on this baby is massive; it's a 360 pbAoE with range slightly beyond maximum. However, if you're point blank the damage procs instantly but if you're at max range it takes a second or two to reach the target.
    3. Circle of Judgment - Excellent damage but, again, atrocious CD. The health buff isn't really helpful in LPVE. I recommend only using this for boss fights or large groups of adds where you know you'll get full damage from it.
    4. Displacer Orbs - Contrary to appearances, this is a pet and it follows pet rules, ie. you can't initiate combat with it even though it looks like a direct attack, it will start attacking a target you're already in combat with. Also, if you leave combat, this pet "de-summons," meaning it's only really helpful on bosses. Lastly, since it is a pet, it can't crit.... making it pretty terrible all round given it's insane CD. As such, only use this in boss fights.
    5. Summon: Sentinel of Punishment - Both pets are lackluster but add ~2.3% to your DPS. This pet has more health and marginally (by 1 DPS) damage so I suggest keeping this one out.
    6. Summon: Sentinel of Justice - Occasionally debuffs your targets attack damage for 6s and increases your max health but only has 2/3 the health of Sentinel of Punishment. As neither the buff nor the debuff are particularly useful, I suggest sticking to the marginally tankier pet.

    Important Rotations
    All You Can Really Do (ST):
    Sooooooo... because of his insane CDs, Doctor Fate doesn't really have any "rotations" per se. For ST, basically, just spam Arcane Blast (highest DPS-when-spammed combo and allows you to move while you're doing it) and clip whatever power's off CD with priority being from left to right. Don't bother using Displacer Orbs outside of boss fights (it'll be a DPS loss and good chance it won't be ready again when you start the boss).

    All You Can Really Do (AoE):
    For AoE it's essentially the same, but with Power Discharge, Fist Slam, or Solar Flame.

    Power Discharge Variant (Point Blank):

    Note: You can also substitute Fist Slam for the combo

    Solar Flame Variant (Max Range):

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Donna Troy is easy to use and highly versatile. A great pick for any map and one of the stronger all-rounders in LPVE.

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Reprimand - Her go to ST power and with a mercifully short CD.
    2. Concussive Stomp - A solid short-range 360 pbAoE with a low cost and a reasonable CD.
    3. Lasso Maelstrom - A slight DPS loss if used for ST but amazing for 2+ target situations
    4. Persuasive Lasso - This power's true strength is its high output combined with the fact it can clip its own combo. If you use this as part of a ST rotation, you'll see a slight DPS loss but if you spam this for a total power dump at the end of a fight it's a massive DPS gain.
    5. Girdle of Rhea - In general, only use this if you're about to skip a large area of the map and don't want trash mobs knocking you out of fast movement.
    6. Panacea's Gift - Generally speaking, this is pretty useless in LPVE. However, if you get separated from the group heal and need to hold out for your teammates to catch up, it can help you stay alive. Try not to waste power on this though.

    Important Rotations
    Effective & Efficient ST: Stick to this for main bosses until they're low on health
    Backfist (tap hold hold)(clipped with)>Reprimand>Repeat

    Higher Burn ST but Less Sustainable: Good for squishier sub-bosses who won't last long
    Backfist (clipped with)>Persuasive Lasso (combo)(clipped with)>Reprimand>Repeat

    Power Dump ST: For when the boss is almost dead but you've still got gas in the tank
    Persuasive Lasso (combo)(clipped with)>Repeat

    AoE: Also use this for multi-boss situations, like in Trigon's Prison, since Reprimand is 100% ST
    Since everything you do knocks your targets around, just mix Concussive Stomp, Lasso Maelstrom, and Persuavive Lasso's combo clips onto Backfists however seems appropriate for the current juggle situation.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Felix Faust's ST performance leaves a bit to be desired but his AoE for shredding trash mobs is phenomenal. Having a Faust in the group is a great way to speed up maps with add-kill phases like Ace Chemicals (eg. culling the Chemlings at lb) or Hall of Doom Armoury (ie. killing the hidden key mobs quickly via mass murder).

    Weapon(s)

    Power Analysis
    1. Soul Siphon - The single most potent pull & trash-shredder in LPVE
    2. Skull Scatter - Aside from the hilariously excessive and macabre animation, this hits like a truck on top of sacrificing their pets (it's what they're good for) for even more AoE damage.
    3. Soul Shield - In general, only use this before skipping a large portion of the map to prevent trash mobs from knocking you out of fast movement.
    4. Necrobiosis - Not only is this a good ranged finisher but if you deal the killing blow with this, you get a temporary pet that deals damage and can be sacrificed for even more damage.
    5. Summon: Ravenous Soulless - This derpy little turd exists to die and not much else. I don't recommend using him (although he is pretty fun to watch flail around as he follows you)
    6. Summon: Savage Soulless - I recommend this be the pet you pop (before murdering it). There's a solid chance he'll get off 1-2 respectable (for a pet) AoE attacks before we pop him with Skull Scatter.

    Important Rotations
    Much like Doctor Fate, Felix Faust's CDs are quite long so he lacks a fully defined rotation. Follow the best practices below.

    General Purpose ST:
    Spam Arcane Blast ([ranged] tap tap tap tap hold) clipped with Soul Siphon, Skull Scatter, Necrobiosis, and Savage Soulless resummons as required. If you need to conserve power, you can abstain from re-summoning your pet (not very good ST damage on sacrifice). Make sure you'll have Necrobiosis up again for when the target reaches <35% health.


    General Purpose ST:
    Similar to ST but for the combo, spam Power Discharge or Solar Flame and only use Necrobiosis for the killshot (to farm more pets to pop).

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    Flash is a top-tier character for any map with solid ST and AoE DPS capability and enhanced mobility.

    Weapon(s)
    Martial Arts (Hybrid)

    Power Analysis
    1. Whirling Pommel - Bread & butter power for both ST and AoE rotations. This is a 360 pbAoE with excellent range
    2. Hyper-Speed Vibration - One of the best pulls in LPVE and excellent AoE damage. Very useful for clearing large groups of adds. Do not use this for ST DPS!
    3. Hyper-Speed Hook - An excellent finisher but with a high power cost. Save this for when the boss is below 35%. Combo activated with melee hold.
    4. Phase Attack - Do not use this power. This power is never worth using.
    5. Speed Force Spin - Not nearly as useful or effective as it sounds. Since this knocks enemies away from you, you'll only get maybe 1-2 hits in with it before everything is out of range and its DPS is only good when hitting large groups. Extremely situational. Due to the high power cost, refrain from using this unless you're surrounded by tons of adds such that you're assured to get a lot of hits in.
    6. Quick Dash - Another bread & butter ST/AoE attack for Flash's rotations. Excellent dmg:cost ratio and a very fast animation make this a solid DPS power.

    Important Note: Flash's ranged hold attack, Hastened Burst, is also a teleport than can be spammed to achieve near-fast-movement speeds while in combat, letting him speed through maps.

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose: Optimal DPS:Cost for ST and AoE
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Quick Dash>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Whirling Pommel>Repeat
    Note: Try to stay on top of your target, as you'll get a massive attack speed boost (hence, in practice, Flash's ST DPS is much higher). Thanks to Flash's ability to do a superspeed double-jump, you can reliably position yourself on the head of even the tallest bosses without interrupting your rotation. Save your finisher for <35% boss health and try to always clip the combo with either Whirling Pommel or Quick Dash.

    Power Dump AoE: Good for pulling and shredding medium to large groups of trash mobs.
    Note: If the group is large enough, consider using Speed Force Spin as well.

    How to Play in LPVE
    Character Analysis
    An above average and very fun character who's well balanced for both ST and AoE.

    Weapon(s)
    Martial Arts (Kryptonian Hybrid)

    Power Analysis
    1. Subjugate - On paper, this power looks amazing due to its high damage and low cost. Unfortunately, its animation is too long to make it viable in standard rotations without clipping it with either Soder or Breakout. However, it's important to note that this not only lunges you in from max range but that its damage still applies if used slightly beyond max range, without the lunge, so it's an excellent power for initiating combat.
    2. Kryptonian Grenade Toss - An excellent ST/AoE power best used at point blank range but with a long cooldown. Sneak this into your rotation whenever it's up.
    3. Shockwave Punch - Melee-range 360 pbAoE with a short animation but slightly high power cost.
    4. Swoop Attack - Excellent DMG:cost ratio and a very short animation. Also a mobility enhancer (see Movement Capabilities).
    5. Freezing Breath - Not worth using in LPVE.
    6. Heat Vision - Not worth using in LPVE.

    Important Rotations
    General Purpose: This is a priority rotation with substitutions. See notes.
    Elbow Drop (tap tap tap hold)(clipped with)>Kryptonian Grenade Toss>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Swoop Attack>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Shockwave Punch>Elbow Drop (clipped with)>Swoop Attack>Repeat
    Note: If Subjugate (and something to clip it with) is available and you're fighting a ST, make it your next clip. Try to stay on top of your target; standing on your target's head will dramatically increase your combo speed and your DPS.
