Ding is a common exclamation used by players to announce to their friends and guild members when they reach a new level. Because of this, ding has taken on several auxiliary meanings, such as the act of a player or pet leveling up, the graphic associated with leveling up, etc. Originally, the sound effect when a character leveled in Everquest was a ding.

The introduction of an achievement for reaching a level that is a multiple of 10 has reduced the need to announce new levels. 'Ding' is still used when someone is excited about reaching a level that does not prompt an achievement announcement.

The appropriate response to 'ding' is grats.
