From DDO Compendium


Favor is a reward system that a character earns by completing quests. Favor is gained as a character completes a quest, based on the highest difficulty completed. The favor gained by a specific quest is attributed to the group (or patron) that requested you to complete the quest. By performing more quests for these different patrons (or the same quest at a higher difficulty), a character gains more Favor. The favor can special access to different benefits for that character, and occasionally for your account. Each character accumulates its own favor; most favor rewards will not apply to your other characters, but some will apply to future Characters on the same account on the same server. Favor is reset to zero upon Heroic, Racial or Iconic Reincarnation.

Gaining Favor[edit]

When your character completes a quest, it gains favor points for the patron that the person that handed out the quest. Quests have a favor value for the Normal difficulty. This amount is adjusted higher or lower based on the difficulty that the quest was run on. You do not gain favor for running a quest a second time, unless you run the quest on a higher difficulty than it was run last time.

The following lists the changes from the normal difficulty:

  • Casual
    • 1/2 Normal
  • Hard
    • x2 Normal
  • Elite & Reaper difficulty
    • x3 Normal

You can gain favor if you can run the quest, as it is not limited like the XP or Reaper XP is. You may see many "favor only" entries on the Grouping Panel because high level characters can run low level quests that were skipped during leveling and still get the favor.


Besides individual patron rewards (see below), DDO Points can be granted when favor is gained.

For every 100 favor a character gets, 25 DDO Points are added to the account. There are also special one-time rewards for reaching 5, 25, 50, 500, and every 1000 favor for the first time in a server with any character.

When you reincarnate a character and the favor is reset, each 100 favor you reacquire will again net you 25 DP.


Each patron grants special rewards at different levels for the amount of favor gained patron. There is also a special patron for overall favor rewards. The table below contains the information and links to the individual patrons.
