Champions Online DPS Chart

Update 8/8/14: A more updated version is currently being maintained by Flowcyto HERE

This is an updated version of the original DPS chart posted on StockyAnn.net. I have added the new powers added in the Night Avenger update, as well as more recent adjustments to powers like Two-Gun Mojo. The test character used was a Level 40 character in Hybrid mode with no gear and no talents.

This chart reflects direct, unconditional damage dealt by a power. Hence, I have taken the liberty to omit low damage utility powers like lunges and pulls, and highly conditional powers and DoTs, as it would be difficult to represent them fairly in such a list. However, there were some notable exceptions that made it in due to having high enough damage to compete with pure damage dealing powers, like Heat Wave and Seismic Smash.

The version on this blog only shows the Energy per Second (EPS), Damage per Second (DPS) and Damage per Energy per Second (DPES). A link to download the full version is provided at the end.

The top quartile of powers in each category (AoE damage, Single target damage and heals) is highlighted in green, while the bottom quartile is highlighted in red.
