The House of Splendor


"A mask of pure gold. The face of man is bound by the flesh of man: imperfect, ephemeral, 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



  • Creed Healing/Buffing items cause poison if buildup is raised to maximum.
  • This creed seems to revolve around a type of hedonistic cultism, possibly reminiscent of certain Greco-Roman timelines.

        Lock of hair, diamond cluster, amber idol, endless fang, and silver leaf can be purchased without joining/increasing devotion. I just found this creed and bought diamond cluster without joining, I am of the three rn.

          The best creed for a furious paladin build: 2H Weapon, Tower Shield, Weapon and Stat Buff Miracles and a lot of wine drunk makes almost every boss an adorable piece of meat.

            Join them for the easy access to gold and transmutation items! It makes such a difference when trying to get Tier 4 stuff.

              So this isn't mentioned anywhere, but I noticed that I can sell items to the House of Splendor merchant for 2.5x what I sell it to the Stone Roots merchant (so 25% of the buying price instead of 10%) - and I'm not even a member of this creed. I feel like this might be an important aspect of the creed's theme that's worth including somewhere.

                Sorry probably a dumb question, but I used a stained page on multiple sanctuaries and now hardly have any left with Merchants. (duh) My question is, how do I know what creed I am? (you can only be on creed at a time right?) The reason for asking is, my plan is to grab the "LAST" Crystal orb in game ..(last hope) and use it in a Sanctuary that has Blacksmith..Because also no more blacksmiths ...(needed for Splendor) Why is it I go to a different location and It seems my creed changes? I don' want to use the crystal orb, and it not be the creed I need....(House of Splendor) ..Thank you for your help....sorry so lengthy..

                  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.I have a much easier time dealing with bosses using goldenwine than defilement.

                  • 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?
