Atomic

Utilize the power of nuclear energy, rearranging the atomic structure of yourself, your allies, and your enemies at will. Split Atoms, cause Thermochemical Explosions, and burn under the intense Nuclear Pressure causing unreal destruction. Transmute into fortified metal and reorganize your atomic structure to protect you and your allies in your Tank role, or harness the power of the building blocks of all matter to lay waste to your enemies in the Damage role.

Access to Atomic powers will be available to members with an active subscription. Non-members may purchase access in the Marketplace for either 600 Daybreak Cash, 600 Marketplace Cash or 600 Loyalty Points.
Specializing in Tanking abilities, Atomic is the game's 14th power set.
