Ancillary Power Pools (also known as Epic Power Pools, shown in game as Epic power set) are powersets that become available for Heroes at level 41. Villains have access to similar Patron Power Pools. Warshades and Peacebringers do not get Ancillary Power Pools.

Unlike the regular Power Pools, APP are restricted by Archetype. The powers in these pools are selected from other Archetypes, and are designed to give each Archetype access to types of abilities that they do not normally have: holds and ranged attacks for melee Archetypes, armors for ranged Archetypes, etc.

Just like the regular Power Pools, you can choose a different APP during a respec.

NOTE FOR VILLAINS: Villains cannot change their PPP during a respec.

Defender Ancillary Powersets give them slight Scrapper-like resistance and some self-boosting powers; Psychic Mastery gives them slight control capability.
