Deities (EQ2)  

Your character can choose to worship a Deity. Seek out the nearest Deity Historian for information and directions to the prophets. There are fourteen returned deities from which to choose: five evil, four good, and five neutral. Any one can worship a neutral god, but only evil characters can choose evil gods (and good characters, good gods).

To show your devotion you must perform quests in the name of your deity. Each deity has its own progressive line of quests. The first three or four quests are soloable or duoable, but the last quest for most gods requires a group. For each quest that you complete you unlock one miracle and one blessing and receive a substantial amount of Favor. Completing the final quest rewards you with a cloak specific to your deity.

You earn Favor by doing the deity quests and tithing items to your deity through their altar. Most equipable items (including some Tinkered items) can be used to earn favor, and better altars reduce the favor cost of blessings and miracles.

Renouncing your Faith

Should you lose faith in your god or find another suits you better, you may renounce your current god. Go to your deity's prophet and click the altar near them. Select "yes" when prompted: you will lose all benefits of that god, but will be free to prove your worth to another deity.
