Sin in Salt and Sanctuary accumulates when the player changes their Creed by taking an oath at a sanctuary belonging to another Creed. Sin is also gained by desecrating another creed's sanctuary.


Sin will prevent you from rejoining a previously abandoned creed, and their respective, default sanctuary NPCs will react to your denouncement, some of them refusing to offer their services. Desecrating a sanctuary is much more serious; you lose the abilities to teleport to, heal at, level up at, or take oaths to any sanctuary of a creed you have desecrated, and you will be attacked upon entering.



You can absolve your sins by seeing the Candlelit Lady at The Watching Woods who can forgive your sins for a price. It costs 1000 Salt for each time you change your Creed, and 10,000 Salt for each time you desecrate a sanctuary.
