Devara's Light

icon cleric

The Earthen Vessel is the creed's idol. Follower's of the Goddess of Light worship Devara, deity of humility, kindness, and forgiveness; healer and protector of the downtrodden. 

Her creed is the oldest known, though it could be the consequence of it's cleric's meticulous recordkeeping. Pilgrims of Devara have been dying out for centuries.

Devara's Light is a Creed in Salt and Sanctuary. It specializes in healing and prayers, so it is the de facto creed for a cleric or paladin type build. It also has the game's most powerful healing items; however, there are not as many options available equipment-wise.

It is the second, out of the three options given by the Old Man at the start of the game; the other being, The Three and The Iron Ones.
The Creed might be one of the oldest known, given to their Clerics meticulous recordkeeping. They follow the believes of the Goddess of Light, Devara, deity of humility, kindness and forgiveness, seeking to embrace all living creatures to find salvation in her bosom; even to those of other faiths, as all are welcome and forgiven, accepted to bask in Her light, and receive Her Forgiveness.

The Creed offers care with it's miracles, some only found within the creed; capable to mend wounds together, support the body with additional defenses to either Physical or Ephemeral attacks, with also some additional offensive miracles to fight back with; also, Devara's care can still be felt on Her phials, particularly Her Water of Blessing, granting a limited protection when quaffed.

The members of this Creed's therefore, are provided with both, reliable healing options, as well as a potent damage type that many enemies are weak to, making it specialized for Cleric's or Paladin's type builds.
Additionally, their Devotion upgrades are present mostly close together, throughout the first quarter of the game, with the only trouble being the lack of options available equipment-wise, meaning the Saltborn will require to explore the Nameless Island for better alternatives.

Choosing Devara's Light does change the ending of the game. There is a unique poem read for both the Survival and Dominion endings.


Survival Ending

Ageless solace
Clasp'd by death
Curs'd no longer
Gasping breath

Dominion Ending

This pantheon
Of timeless gods
Shall tremble at
The spreading dark



  • It is speculated that the Candlelit Lady is actually Devara herself.
  • This creed is reminiscent of certain Middle-Eastern religions and cultures.  The type of apparel as well as the various creed-specific items, such as clay vessels and in-game history of the religion, allude to the real-life Middle-Eastern cultures.

      Their mage have Lighning Ball magic, but you need to wait some time after you upgrade devotion to lvl7 or complete Dome of Forgotten. Don't know for sure

      • And here I am!
        This is going to be a big list of stuff to update, and it's going to be for all Creeds too.
        I feel that, both for story, and information to add the additional text when you start, end and talk with each NPC's, as well as writing the apostate dialogue, checking appropriately the items prices and devotion required, mentioning perhaps the class level and focus cost of sorceries and miracles, and so much more...
        I've stopped now at the Sanctuary Description; I've tried adding a small table with a list of the items, having the icon of them for "graphic design and style" but Tables are my Achille's Heel. I have no clue how to edit, change, or even shape the table itself. It's more so baffling when I see the other, sleek, and slim tables, while mine stretches across the entire page. Really need to check it out...
        But other than that, I'm glad to had gathered lots of info on the creed now, always felt bothered by some inconsistencies and wanted to make sure which were right or wrong.

        If anyone PLEASE know how to work on Tables tell me, and I'll see if I can add you on discord or something to chat and converse to work together.

        • I have maxed out the devotion in this creed on my cleric character, but I don't think I can buy any more specialised things like in other creeds. Prayers were sold at like devotion 3, or 4 but max devotion didn't give me dragon fire for example, and weapons/armor are still the same as in the beginning.Are there any special rewards I've missed?
