A Favored Soul is a divine spellcaster like the Cleric but there are a few major differences. As a Favored Soul you are able to cast more spells per rest period, represented by your greater amount of spell points, but unlike the Cleric you can only learn a small number of the available spells. In short, as far as spell casting, the Favored Soul is the Divine version of a Sorcerer.
The Favored Soul class must be purchased in the DDO store for 995 or unlocked on a per-server basis by earning 2,500 total favor on a single character. The Favored Soul class is not free to VIPs.
- Skill points at 1st level: (2 + Intelligence modifier) x4
