Welcome to the game![edit]

Now that you've built your character and logged in, you'll want to know everything about the game. This page is a great starting point! The first thing you may want to do is find out how everything you've performed during character creation appears in DDO on your character - head over to the Character sheet page to find a central point of information about all your character's attributes.

The Character sheet will always be your primary source of information about all of your character's abilities, attributes, statistics and detailed build information. It's your go to place as you progress through acquiring everything in DDO, from Ability tomes through how your saves are calculated. All players visit it constantly, study it and seek to always improve everything they can on it. This guide looks to support you on exactly where to find all detailed information in one central place, help improve your game-play, and lessen the time spent researching.

Essential & helpful information[edit]

Shopping advice[edit]

  • If you have the patience to wait a bit, always try to take advantage of DDO sales! You can often save from 10-25%, and sometimes more (rarely as much as 75%!) off the listed price!
  1. Expansion packs
  2. Adventure packs
  3. Shared Bank (1495 DP) — Great for multiple toons on a server.
