Disambig icon.pngThis article is about the warrior skill type. For various consumables produced by guilds, see guild banner.

Banners are a warrior skill type that apply buffs to their allies. Once summoned, banners function as an environmental weapon. They can then be replanted to a different location to follow the flow of the battle. Banners cannot be interacted with by non-allies and are indestructible.
