They were formerly known as regular DDO Subscribers.

In-game benefits[edit]

  • Chat: Unlimited (Same as premium)
  • Customer service: Full. (Same as premium)
  • Idle Auto-logout: Increases to 60 minutes.
  • Gold Storage: Officially unlimited, technically limited to about 4.3 million pp. (Same as premium)
  • Mail: 50 maximum mails at a time. Anything over that will prevent you from bidding/posting in the AH/SE or receiving mail from other characters.
  • Auctions: 50 items up for sale on platinum auction house, 20 items on the Shard Exchange.
  • Access to all Adventure Packs (excluding expansion content)
  • Enter quests directly on Hard/Elite without having to run prior difficulties
  • Monster Manual access.

  • Shared Bank Vault for free (30 slots)
  • Shared Bank: Platinum Vault: First tier (50,000 platinum deposit) for free.

  • Daily Dice: One free roll on the Gold Chest each week.
  • Harper Agent enhancements: access for all characters to this enhancement tree.
  • Update 46 Patch 3 Release Notes: VIP players and Season Pass holders now get a small group bonus to experience. The bonus is per person in the party other than yourself, and provides a +1% XP boost per party member or member in your raid group, for a maximum bonus of +5% for a party and +11% for a raid group. This bonus is not applied for hirelings or other NPC companions in your group. This bonus stacks with other boosts to XP, including weekend XP bonuses, DDO Store elixirs, and Buddy Boost weekends. This is in addition to the standard +10% XP provided to VIP players.
  • Classes that prepare spells (e.g., wizard), can swap their prepared spells in any public area.
  • Classes that learn spells only when leveling up (e.g., sorcerer), can change spells at the trainer without any cooldown. Bug: The current setup for these classes is a little unreliable - you are automatically given the effect of a Blood of Dragons on each login, but this expires after an hour. You can reactivate the benefit by logging out and in again.

VIP loyalty program[edit]

Introduced May 1st, 2024, the VIP Loyalty Program allows active VIPs to unlock something special every month. To claim your bonus, speak to Violet Peregrine in the Hall of Heroes.

Account benefits[edit]

Special benefits[edit]

  • On rare occasions, VIPs may receive other benefits such as exclusive in-game items (for example, the Alabaster Lioness Figurine of Wondrous Power offered early in 2017).

Out-of-date benefits[edit]

  • Login Queue: Priority. Due to a spree of bugs, DDO's login queue was disabled immediately after DDO Unlimited launched. It has never been reactivated, and as such any character logging onto a full server will simply receive an error message - not that this has happened for several years.
  • DDO Compendium: Read/post. The in-game Compendium has been non-functional for several years.
  • Official forums: Read/post. As of the update to the new forums, all accounts except staff are treated identically.
  • Beta priority: High. DDO's limited beta programme was discontinued several years ago, to be replaced with the Player's Council (a fixed roster of players which is updated via applications on a once-yearly basis) and Lamannia preview server (open for a few short periods before each major update, free to all.) Occasional extra Lamannia previews are extended to content creators, including the wiki, but these are very intermittent (one occurs for each Expansion Pack, and there was a special wiki-only preview for the Epic Destiny revamp in U51) and appear to be unrelated to account type.
