In Dynasty Warrior Online, a player advances his or her character by ranking up.

This is done by gaining Honor points via Battles or Quests. Once the player has acquired the necessary amount of Honor points he/she can rank up by completing the Quest given by the General you serve under.

For players under Guard rank (below 200 Honors), The Instructor will be the NPC that give promotion quests until player achieved Guard rank and "graduate" from the "Musou Dojo."

Once you achieve the rank of Guard you can choose a General to serve under (Click Here for more information by selection your Faction)

The General you serve under will be the person who gives you pay every 6 months in game time (7.5 days in real life).

You will also receive special bonuses depending on the general you serve under. Every subsequent promotion you receive will also increase your salary pay.
