The currency tab.

Currency in DC Universe Online refers to tokens and cash used to obtain various items and equipment when trading with certain vendors and kiosks. There are several different forms of in-game currency, some can be obtained from defeating opponents and completing quests, while others can be earned through conversion with real world money. While the majority are available throughout the game, others still are only available and usable during certain events or can be found and used only through the obtainment of certain downloadable content.

Currency cannot be owned beyond its cap, thus any of it earned beyond, will be discarded.

Cash[edit | edit source]

Cash is the most prevalent form of currency in DC Universe Online. Represented by gold dollar symbol icons, Cash can be earned for completing missions, destroying objects or defeating enemies, players can also sell unwanted items to vendors for cash. Cash is the primary form of currency and is featured in the majority of trades with Vendors and Kiosks; used to purchase equipment, consumables, equipment repairs, and the Trait Reset (or Re-spec) service. It is the only currency that can be traded or mailed between players.

Escrow.png

Escrow[edit | edit source]

Escrow is cash that exceeds a player's current Access Level status. Once the player meets and exceeds their limit, as dictated by their membership, all money they earn that exceeds the limit will be placed in an "Escrow Account" until they upgrade their Access Level which increases their currency limit.

  • Free Membership, any amount exceeding $1,500 will be placed in Escrow.
  • Premium Membership, any amount exceeding $2,000 will be placed in Escrow.
  • Legendary Membership (All Access - AA), currency amount is unlimited and Escrow is no longer applicable.

The Marketplace also provides purchasable upgrades that enable the player to access 10,000 or 25,000 of their Escrow cash for a set amount of Daybreak Cash or to freely access the Escrow Account for 7 days.

The kiosk offers the same consumable items, toys, DLC Packs and collectibles as the Marketplace.
