(Redirected from TP)
Jump to: navigation, search

DDO Points (FKA "Turbine Points" and changed during winter of 2016 when Standing Stone Games acquired DDO and LotRO from previous owner of Turbine, Inc. who wanted to switch focus to mobile game development.) are a way to pay for various content within the game using the ingame DDO Store, whether you be a VIP, Premium Free To Play or just a Free To Play user. DDO Points were introduced in Module 9. You can gain DDO Points in several ways.

Gaining DDO Points[edit]

Gaining DDO Points depends on what type of account you have.

VIP[edit]

There are three methods available for gaining DDO Points as a VIP Subscriber:

  • You get 500 DDO Points every month.
  • Earning Favor within the game.
  • Purchasing DDO Points using real money.

Premium Account[edit]

Premium Accounts are accounts that have registered a Dungeons & Dragons: Stormreach retail account key, purchased at least one month of VIP status, or purchased DDO Points in the DDO Store.

There are two methods available for gaining DDO Points as a Premium Free To Play account holder:

  • Earning Favor within the game.
  • Purchasing DDO Points using real money.

Free To Play[edit]

There are two methods available for gaining DDO Points as a Free To Play account holder:

  • Earning Favor within the game.
  • Purchasing DDO Points using real money in-game.
    • Note: Purchasing any amount of DDO Points immediately upgrades your account to a Premium Account.

Bonus DDO Points for previous play or participating the beta[edit]

Players were given free/retroactive DDO Points if they participated in the module 9 beta, or paid for the game prior to Module 9's release:

  • Retroactive DDO Points if you were a previous subscriber (now known as a VIP). Amount was based on length of membership.
  • Retroactive DDO Points based on the highest amount of favor you had on one character.
  • Bonus Points if you participated in the Module 9 Beta.
  • Bonus Points if you used the DDO Store in the Module 9 Beta.

You gain 25 DDO Points for each full 100 Favor gained by every character you ever make. Bug: Currently no TP is available for 5,000+ FavorSo there are no such quest as Palace of Stone.., No DDO points awarded after 5k benchmark?, There are no TP income for favor over 5000..
Each character is tracked separately. Deleting a character does not erase the TP he or she earned.

Special Rewards[edit]

You gain bonus DDO Points the very first time you reach certain total Favor thresholds on each server. You can gain each bonus only once per server. (The first bonus may not be awarded until you talk to Dax Boon in Korthos Village, check your award mail in-game in Stormreach, or both.)

A common recommendation for earning TP is to reach 100 favor on each server.
For each server you will earn 100 bonus TP for reaching 5, 25, and 50 favor for the first time on the server, 25 TP for reaching 100 favor, 100 TP for reaching 1000 favor, and an additional 100 TP for every 1000 thereafter.

Congratulations! As a special bonus to you in recognition for the first time you achieved ## total favor on the {SERVER} game world, you have been given ## additional Points to spend at the DDO Store!
To enter the DDO Store and start shopping, just click the gold coin icon at the far right of the main menu bar.
The more new quests you complete, the more points you will be awarded. Happy Adventuring!

Monster Manuals[edit]

DDO Points can also be earned by purchasing volumes 1 and 2 of the Monster Manual. For each of the 10 monster types in volume 1 and the 10 monster types in volume 2, 15 DDO Points can be earned as a mid-progress reward and 35 DDO Points as an end reward. These awards are for total number of monsters slain in the category per server. This gives a potential for 1000 DDO Points awarded per server via monster manuals.

Spending DDO Points[edit]

The only method of spending DDO Points is using the DDO Store from within the game. There are many things available that you can spend them on, from Adventure Packs to XP & Loot Boosters. Go to the DDO Store wiki page for a list of items.
