After completing the Leviathan and Omega DLCs, are Dominate, Lash, and Flare available bonus powers when starting a new character? Or do I have to wait to purchase them in the med bay after that character has completed those DLCs?

They can be assigned immediately upon character creation, the same as any other unlocked bonus power. Luper567 (talk)


Hmm. Because those three aren't showing up on the Character creation menu for me, and I've run five characters through Leviathan and Omega already. This is the first character I've started since then. I do have Slam and Dark Channel. DC19 (talk)


I just went to the new character construction screen on mine to check, and they were all there at the bottom of the list. Don't know what else to say, other than one time, the game reset my unlocked powers flags. :/ Luper567 (talk)


Hmph. Yeah, I checked on one of my other characters and they're all available in the Med Bay for purchase. Granted, the power I wanted (Flare) has some detractors that say it's too much of a hit on DPS to be worth it ... but having Aria use it was great for just blowing up a room full of mooks and ending a fight in one shot. Even better for setting it off in the troop bay of a Cerberus shuttle ]:D DC19 (talk)

  • No reason to care about damage-per-second when a Warp/Flare combo will make all of your enemies dead in one second. LilyheartsLiara (talk)
  • DPS isn't the be all, end all that some people think it is, and Flare's DPS is only low if you're calculating it based off single targets.  Against groups, the DPS is fantastic. 6thLyranGuard (talk)
  • Agreed. Flare sucks against heavies unless you're doing it as a detonator for a combo, but it's hard to match as a way to clear out basic enemies fast. Might see if I can't replay the last battle of Omega with one of my other characters, then switch to creating the new one and find out if that gets me Flare back. DC19 (talk)
  • Flare does not actually suck against heavies, either.  It has enough damage and force that it will leave a definite mark on them.  But it's so much better if you are using it to detonate Warps. 6thLyranGuard (talk)
  • Yeah, I just noted that even at Rank 6 Aria wasn't making a major dent in the Atlases - few bars of shields gone, but that was it. DC19 (talk)

Just tried replaying the final fight of Omega and then switching to creating the new character - still missing Dominate, Lash, and Flare from the menu. Unless I can figure out a way to get them available I may just go with Stasis as an interim power for my adept. Bummer. I was so looking forward to playing through the entire game biotic-nuking things left and right ...

EDIT - well, it wasn't available in character creation, but it was available for purchase in Normandy's med bay as soon as I got aboard. A worthwhile expenditure of 4750 credits, methinks. DC19 (talk)
