The House of Splendor


"A mask of pure gold. The face of man is bound by the flesh of man: imperfect, emphemeral, and rotten. But a face of gold knows none of these flaws."

The House of Splendor is a Creed in Salt and Sanctuary. They are an unusual creed that is focused on getting as much gold as possible. However, it is far from a pointless creed as you can get rewarded for devotion with the powerful Goldenwine to buff attack and defense. The merchant also has rare upgrade materials and members also get access to expensive gold items, the Axe of Splendor and Resplendent Set.






To increase your Devotion with The House of Splendor you must turn in Remains at any Stone Leader. Devotion maxes out at Rank 7. The following items can be traded in in batches of 3 for either a: Lilyred Wine, Iris Wine, Goldenwine and Cleansing Clothx2


To transmute weapons you have to speak with The House of Splendor Chemist. Transmutation allows you to convert a Weapon, Shield or Armor into another of the same type using the remains of Bosses and Enemies.






Choosing The House of Splendor does change the ending of the game. There is a unique poem read for both the Survival and Dominion endings.

Survival Ending

Bearing gold
On failing flesh
Freed from gaol
To splendid rest

Dominion Ending

Love of gold
Bitter heart
Plunge this splendor
Into dark

    • Goldenwine is better09 Jun 2016 05:28  

      I think Goldenwine is better than Defilement from Betrayer creed as the former is a buff that can be used on any enemies + defense up + gold find, whereas defilement just affect those enemies that it hit and didn't last as long either.<br/><br/>I have a much easier time dealing with bosses using goldenwine than defilement.

      • This leader asks for similar remains...03 Jun 2016 23:21  

        Anyone find it peculiar that this leader is asking for the exact same remains as The Three's leader? I mean, it'd be quite a stretch to say that they're connected in some way, but... huh...

            Unless the other factions have something you need this faction is the best "value" as gold retains it value by being 1/5 as good as salt(500g per 100 salt) then the buff item increases damage by 50% and damage taken by 20%, and more salt via more gold. What other faction gives you more?
