Ecto - basically you have to set your deity's name (exactly) at character creation time; there is a Deity button which you click on the final Customize page during the creation process where you can key in a deity name.

As to the specific deity name to use -- see here:

/deities.html

Once in-game with your new character, you will find a special Deity Ring item in your inventory, which will give you the special powers associated with the deity. Use the ring's special power to pray and maybe get bonuses out of the deal.

Thank you very much for your help...

I suppose there isn't any way to choose my deity AFTER I have created my character, correct?

A couple of questions myself:

1. Is there a timescale for the rest being put in, I look forward to using Akadia.
2. If I make a deity using char now, will it receive a ring when the deity is implemented?
3. If 2 is yes, how is it going to be spelled (I'm not clued up on this)? I've seen Akadia, Akadi and Akida so far.
4. Will Akadia be like Talos and Kossuth, Aura of Wind and sonic resistance, plus as I've never had a deity so far, what do the different Auras do?

Ummm thats it for now...

Not at this time...I'll see about adding her when I get a chance though... icon_wink.gif

2. If I make a deity using char now, will it receive a ring when the deity is implemented?
Yes, it looks at your deity on join and if you don't have the ring yet you get it and can use it right away. Self installing deities. icon_wink.gif

3. If 2 is yes, how is it going to be spelled (I'm not clued up on this)? I've seen Akadia, Akadi and Akida so far.
It'll be spelled exactally how it appears in my reference chart which is what is posted.

4. Will Akadia be like Talos and Kossuth, Aura of Wind and sonic resistance, plus as I've never had a deity so far, what do the different Auras do?
Not sure what I can do with her...but it'll be decent. Auras basically damage anything near you with a perticular damage type...and the aura of protection protects allies near that character. They grow more powerful with your level and faith. icon_wink.gif

Hope that helps!

I was thinking instead of having another Aura of ???/??? Resistance deity, you could have Aura of Wind and some sort of Dodge Bonus, since Akadi is the deity of Wind and Movement. Would be kinda like a Talos(offensive)/Helm(defensive) cross and maybe give Tempus a run for his money, he's easily the best on offer.
Of course with Aura of Wind and Sonic Resistance it would round off the all the elemental damage types.
