Banners are a skill type that apply effects to allies. Once summoned, banners function as a bundle and 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. Warriors who carry banners for their group are often referred to as Banner Support.
