Crests



According to legend, crests are a symbol of power that the goddess bestowed to mankind long ago. They are passed down by bloodline–typically through the descendants of the old heroes and saints, who are now nobility. 

The crests themselves are divided into “Major Crests” that grant immense power and “Minor Crests”, which are a weaker variant. Not all nobles inherit a crest and it is not understood when a major or minor crest is passed down.

Notes:

  • It seems major crests have an increased activation rate.
  • In addition to those listed, it’s possible to obtain crests via special items.
