There are also 14 standard races, with 4 available free-to-play (Human, Dwarf, Halfling, Elf) as well as 8 Iconic Races (which start at level 15).
Dungeons & Dragons Online has one of the most customizable character creation options in any MMORPG. After choosing their race and starting class, players can modify their character's facial features, hair, eye and skin color, gender, and other details (such as scars, tattoos, or in the case of Warforged, blades). A player can choose to develop a character in one class or multiclass later as they level up (a character can have up to 3 classes).

And players may choose to Reincarnate their character, restarting with higher stats and bonus feats to further develop their power.
Questing in Dungeons & Dragons Online is mostly instanced, and XP is rewarded for accomplishing them.

There are also multiple Sagas, which are a chain of campaign quests that give a large reward when fulfilled.
