    Default Character Slots

    Is anyone out there aware of some of the more esoteric sources of account character slots? I have 47 slots on my VIP account, for example, and can't even figure out how I got them. What I know is this:

    • 11 slots for being VIP
    • 30 slots from store upgrades
    • 3 slots from Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion
    • 1 slot from Ravenloft expansion
    • 1 slot from Sharn expansion

    That's 46 that I can account for. Where I got the extra one, I have no recollection. I did see an old thread in this forum (c. 2017) on the topic, but there were no concrete answers. One person in that thread suggested that a slot could be had through an old anniversary event, but I've been unable to corroborate this theory. If anyone knows some other sources of character slots, please help satisfy my OCD need to know!

    I have 17 character slots, and I have never bought one from the Store. Whence came these two extra slots?

    The Shadowfell Conspiracy expansion (Collector's Edition) comes with 3 Character slots I believe. Perhaps you got one of the top tier pre-order Expansion bonus bundles or something.

    Plus the 1 extra character slot everyone was gifted recently (10th birthday), that's 16. Don't know what that last missing one could be.

    Yup that's one of the one's I'm aware of, that I listed in my original post. MOTU and Sharn expansions never had character slots, AFAIK.

    Well you're the second to mention one from anniversary event … I don't remember this, though, and couldn't find anything to corroborate this. Are you sure it was the 10th anniversary?

    UPDATE: after a little more searching, I did find some discussion on this, it seems that, yes, everyone got a free character slot with U30, but this is already baked into the 11 I counted for being VIP. Prior to U30, it seems all F2P accounts got 2 slots, Premium got 6 slots, and VIP got 10 slots. So, there are still two unexplained slots on my and Tscheuss' accounts.

    I did not get extra char slot, so I sense something fishy.

    Its possible the store has offered more than 30 slots at one point, but doesn't currently. They've been known to put up things they didn't mean to from time to time.

    Default Slots from server merges

    I should mention that I think it's possible to have acquired extra slots as part of the server merges done many years ago. That's definitely not my case, however.

    Planescape City of Doors for DDO endgame. Even dying in certain places can create new adventures.

    It's baked into the 11 you get as VIP. Pre-U30, VIP only got 10 slots.

    Maybe you activated multiple editions of various expansions; those might include spots and stack

    ah, since I'm premium, I'm not in that group.

    was commenting on post that "everyone got them"

    You still got them, you have 5 basic slots then, instead of the original 4 that premium accounts got pre-U30.

    Hmmm interesting possibility, but not so in my case.

    Default Sharn

    Ah ha! Sharn expansion came with a character slot, too. OP updated, now there is only one slot I cannot account for.

    Yes, Masterminds of Sharn: Ultimate Fan Bundle is meant to come with a Character slot. Possibly if you 'pre-ordered' certain expansions it gave you an additional slot for a limited time.

    I'm wondering the same thing, but haven't been able to dig up anything conclusive.

    You can make 300+ characters
    The problem with focusing on the most extreme of players is that that group will only get smaller and smaller... Oof
    You know you have a problem when a virtual fantasy game ruins your concept of real world money and its value.
