In addition, any zone which has been conquered by a particular nation (you can see these by looking in your menu at Region Info -> Conquest) will have a Conquest Guard for that zone. They are recognizable by the nation title they bear: I.M. for Bastok, T.K. for San d'Oria, and W.W. for Windurst. Usually, they are just inside the zone line, and additionally there will be one at the Region Outpost. You can use this guard to set your homepoint or cast signet on you.

  • The duration of Signet is directly affected by your personal Nation Rank and your Nation's Conquest Rank (A player with Rank 5 whose nation is in 2nd place will have a Signet duration of 7 hours).
  • Having Signet effect while hunting in areas other than those associated with the Treasures of Aht Urhgan and Wings of the Goddess expansions will earn you Conquest Points. You can turn in your Conquest Points for special items. Signet effect also allows you to collect crystals from the monsters that you kill in these same areas, provided they are "Easy Prey" or higher.
  • The following items grant Signet effect:

Fed. Signet Staff icon.png Federation Signet Staff - Windurstians
Kgd. Signet Staff icon.png Kingdom Signet Staff - San d'Orians
Rep. Signet Staff icon.png Republic Signet Staff - Bastokans

These staffs are all available from Conquest Guards for 5000 Conquest Points and require Nation Rank 10. They are listed under "Common Items".


The main purpose of this buff is to participate in Conquest. You will earn Conquest Points when defeating monsters in appropriate zones with the effect active on your character. Additionally, you will earn Crystals as drops.

Additional Benefits

In the March 2007 Version Update, additional benefits were gained with the use of Signet:

  • Increased Healing HP while resting.
    • The initial value for Healing HP (based on the character’s level), as well as the incremental jumps in Healing HP (based on the character’s maximum HP), will be increased.
  • No TP loss while resting.
    • While Signet is in effect, TP will not be lost while resting.
  • Bonus experience in small groups
    • The amount of experience earned while in smaller parties will be increased. The bonus is in effect in a party of 2-5 players, but not when solo or in a full party of 6. The amount varies from 5%~15% based on number of players in the party.
  • Increased defense and evasion against attacks from your auto-attack target
    • If an auto-attack target is an “even match” or weaker, players will gain a bonus to their defense and evasion against the monster. This bonus only applies to attacks from an opponent who you are auto-attacking with a drawn weapon. No bonus will be obtained when attacking in a manner other than auto-attack, or when being attacked by monsters that unexpectedly join the fray.
