The Gods of Norrath have returned with the launch of Echoes of Faydwer. For a little background on why the Gods left in the first place, consider reading the Tome of Destiny. There are 4 tiers of godhood, each tier created by members of the previous tier. Tier 1: The Supreme Creator of the universe is known as The Nameless, who has never been heard of since creation, and the only known god of that caliber. Tier 2: Below the Nameless and 1 degree of separation closer to mortals are the elemental gods, representing the 4 elemental planes who rarely show any interest in the affairs of mortals. Tier 3: The gods of influence, who created the mortals, and actively scheme against each other for power on Norrath; at times these gods directly interact with mortals (2 confirmed are mortals who ascended to godhood). Tier 4: Minor deities who serve at the will and pleasure of gods of influence, some were originally mortals until they were elevated. So far, the only worshippable deities are gods of influence.
How to Become a Follower Edit
Should you choose to worship a god, seek out a Deity Historians for directions to the various prophets of the gods. These prophets can help you make the final choice of alignment and start you on your long path of devotion. Currently, 14 Gods have returned to Norrath (8 with EoF, 1 with LU38, 3 with RoK, 2 with TSO), of the 16 planes of influence in the known universe (Anashti Sul has been displaced; the 3 remaining planes were ruled by Prexus, Erollisi Marr, and Veeshan). In Destiny of Velious, Prexus made his presence known with his Avatar: the mighty Lodizal, and prophets: Nipik and Osh. Two unspecified female Deities are expected to return shortly. Of the returned gods, 4 can only be worshiped by 'good' characters, 5 by only 'evil' characters, and 5 can be worshiped by good or evil characters. Therefore good players have a choice of 9, evil of 10 and exiles of 14.
Prophets will not deal with Player Characters before they have reached an Adventure level of 20.
Once you have chosen a deity, their prophet will begin you on a 5-part series of quests to prove your devotion. Along this path, you will receive many tangible rewards: two house altars, an equipment accessory, a non-combat buff pet, and a cloak.
The material rewards will vary from quest to quest in the series, but two rewards are consistent at each stage: you receive a large amount of favor points and you unlock a new pair of Blessings and Miracles. Favor points are spent at your altar to acquire one each of your unlocked Blessings and Miracles (2 uses per purchase).
Each Deity's page lists detailed information on associated Blessings, Miracles, Pet, and Cloak, along with links to the devotion quests. See Beliefs for a more detailed list of progressive rewards from each step in the series of devotion quests.
In addition to the large amounts of favor granted by completing the progressive devotion quests, you may also tithe items at your altar to gain small amounts of favor with your god. This favor can be spent on Blessings and Miracles, which can be used to boost your fighting during difficult combat.
If you regularly use Blessings and Miracles, obtaining a better altar will allow you to purchase them at a discount. You receive two altars as the rewards for devotion quests #1 and #4. There are also two different kinds of altars crafted by Carpenters (Tier 4 and 7). Deity Historians also sell a plain altar.
For detailed information on Altar Types and favor cost reductions, see Altars.
See main article Avatars.
Each of the returned gods has an Avatar that will occasionally descend to Norrath if enough favor has been collected by worshipers of that god. The Avatar will remain on Norrath for 1-3 days or until they are killed. Three of the god's Avatar can remain on Norrath at a time.
If the Avatar representing your god is descended, you can approach them and receive a small, 5-hour buff. See Avatars as well as the individual Category:Avatar articles for detailed information on these buffs as well as information on the price of attacking the avatar of your god.
