Step 6

The Symbol of Protection, governed by Lady Imaera, is obtained at the sixth step of the Order of Voln. The Symbol of Protection increases one's generic DS and TD.


  • Type SYMBOL OF PROTECTION. This symbol cannot be used on others.


  • Symbol of Protection grants a generic DS bonus equal to the user's ranks in the Order of Voln. The maximum benefit is +26 DS.
  • In addition to the DS bonus, this symbol grants the user a TD bonus equal to 1/2 the number of Voln steps completed. Masters of the Order will receive a +13 TD bonus.


  • The duration of Symbol of Protection is equal to 20 seconds per completed step. The duration for Voln masters is 8:40 minutes per invocation. Repeated uses of Symbol of Protection add onto the duration; this symbol is stackable.

Favor Required to Obtain Symbol of Protection

Formula: 400 + (( level2 × 10 ) ÷ 3 )
Ex. level 5 member: 500 + ((5 × 5 × 10) ÷ 3) = 583 favor
