With Veteran Status, you can start newly created characters at level 4 (with Veteran Status I) or level 7 (with Veteran Status II). You can unlock Veteran status in two ways, either by purchasing one or both in the DDO Store, or by by earning Favor.
- If purchase in DDO Store, one purchase applies to all servers.
- If accumulate 1,000 total favor on a single character, permanently* unlock level 4 Veteran status on that server.
- If accumulate 3,000 total favor on a single character, permanently* unlock level 7 Veteran status on that server.
- * If the character is later deleted, Veteran status is not lost.
Note that this is for new characters only; characters who undergo Heroic True Reincarnation do not benefit from this, and begin all future lives at Level 1.
For more information, refer to the Voyage.
