now that we have a warpriest tree, one can only hope more battle clerics will emerge.

can we please have some diversity in the choice of deities and weapons?
why (for example) can't a human worship the undying? why can't a horc worship the lord of blades? and while we're on the subject, how come dwarves don't have their own deity?

allowing for more racial/deity interactions would increase building options, and please oh please add some more deities and weapons. surely that isn't a hard thing to do.

welll... i would rather like to see all dieties dropped from game, and replaced by something more generic, and dietiy choice left out to level of something done by players for roleplaying feeling and not something used for configuing the build.

so drop all dieties and replace them with generic enchancements.

for now we have weird situations like gnomons, purge the heretics where unyealding sov pally/cleric/fvs goes to kill his ppl for favor sake...... for the silver flame priest.... yea.....

but to make it even worse we have 2 worlds now, with diffrent dieties for each, it will start to get weird at one point or another.

I would love to see some more deities added to the game, mainly for the weapons (we only have Bow, Short Sword, Long Sword, Scimitars, Great Sword, and Mace), cosmetics, optional dialogue, and other side abilities.

I would like to see more faith choices added because the current choices favor elves, drow and warforged.

Can see the Devs now. Breaking out the old Deities and Demigods (Legends and Lore). Which Pantheon first?

If they drop the deities than what's the point in Divine classes? How can a Cleric be a cleric if they worship no deity? How can a favored soul be a favored soul if their not "liked" by deities? How can a paladin be a paladin if they worship and fight for nothing?

Also, that thing with Gnomon, he was never good to begin with since he's a Raksassa of the Lords of Dust undermining the Silver Flame.

This wouldn't be Dungeons & Dragons Online if they dropped the deities because if they do, they might as well delete the Divine classes and become a different game.

All I can say is that your suggestion is horrible.

On Topic: I would very much like to see more deities added to DDO, there just isn't enough, and I think every race worships their own deities.

I don't know about FvS, but paladins are forces of law and good in 3rd edition. 4ed **** that is (not so slowly) creeping into DDO turned them from holy warriors to melees of a god (any). They don't need to worship deity, they may find strenght in their faith not in god, but in law, order, and self sacrifice.
Clerics don't need to worship any deity, they may choose to worship a cause, a philosophy or way of life.
Theese are all roleplaying choices, and until enhancement pass clerics or paladins didn't had to choose deity- it was non mandatory enhancement (skipped by most clerics I know BTW).
Now indeed, it turned form 3rd to 4th ed BS and everyone is forced to worship something.
(whats more insulting, domains that were finally planned for enhancement pass (screenshots were there) were removed from plans)

you misunderstanded what i mean, i dont mean to drop it completely, i mean to drop dieties, and make faiths generic, where a choice of specific benefits (weapon bonuses, special powers and such) are not setting divine char to be a representative of one specific deity.

we have few faith choices in game but none of them has ANY REAL meaning in game, faith choice does not help you nor give you problems.

by ebberon logic, divine char from ANY faith other than silver flame would be at least treated like garbage by silver flame.

as for gnomon? at the point in the game story , at level where his quest is placed, we dont know YET he is rakshasa, he not nessesarely have to been replaced by one YET, so all we know he hires us for silver flame and not his own plans.

ok so the idea still stands, to make all divine benefits and powers not based on specific deity, just make them fit all at once, give multiple choices.

btw, if you want to see how wrong things are in ddo, check what deity in soveregin host favors longsword and what is its alignment.

Splitting up the sovereign host into it's various deities would be a quick start (copy and paste the SH feat change the name and weapon it effects...done) after that I agree with the OP remove the racial limitations on dieties there's no reason a Halfling can't worship Vulkoor or Moradin and there's no reason an Eberron Character can't worship Faerun Dieties (or vise versa) especially a multi-class one (found their faith when they cam to the new world)

I would LOVE to see some classic diety/iconic hero marriages.

Oghma - FR god of knowledge, invention, and inspiration - This would make a great iconic spellsinger bard or archmage wizard.

Onatar - Eberron god (sovereign host) of forges, creation, and industry - Did somebody say iconic dwarven artificer?

Kelemvor - FR god of death, judgement, and burial rites - Would make an interesting pale master wizard or necromancy cleric.

Tempus - FR god of war, victory, and honorable combat - Probably the best choice for an iconic warpriest favored soul specializing in battle axes.

Talos - FR god of destruction, earthquakes, and storms - Evocation-based cold/electric druid iconic, please.

Aureon - Eberron god (sovereign host) of law, knowledge, and magic - Great archmage wizard iconic. Acrobats would have fun as his favored weapon is the staff.

Path of Light - Eberron 'group' based on meditation, protection, and law - Great shintao monk iconic, seeing as the favored weapon of the 'group' is unarmed strike.

The Mockery - Eberron god (dark six) of domination, trickery, and war - Probably a ninja spy monk specializing in kamas.

Lathander - FR god of birth, youth, and the spring - Would make an interesting healing-based druid.
