The Three


The candelabra of the Three is their main idol that is placed at the Sanctuary. This candelabra is representative of the 3 gods that maintain order in the world of Salt and Sanctuary - The King, The Judge and The Knight.

The King creates laws by which all men must abide. The Judge decides which men have broken the King's laws. The Knight carries out the King's sentence against guilty men.

The Three is a Creed in Salt and Sanctuary. It is one of the stronger creeds to start out the game with due to the high variety of weapons/upgrade materials offered by the blacksmith, good for heavy armor and shield builds, and the ability to get rare weapon buff items. However, it becomes one of the weakest creeds later in the game, due to its lack of any unique reward items for devotion, once weapon buffs become easier to purchase.

The Three is the de facto religion of most of the world due to the powerful influence of the nation of Askaria.



The Three Sanctuary Locations



To increase your Devotion with The Three 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: Red Flask, a Spiced Mead, an Imperial Pitchfire or an Imperial Shockstone.



To transmute weapons you have to speak with The Three 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 Three does change the ending of the game. There is a unique poem read for both the Survival and Dominion endings.

 Survival Ending

Born of salt
Devour'd by sea
From icy crypt
Deliver me

Dominion Ending



  • The Forgotten King is presumably The Three.
  • The Three is reminiscent of the Christian religion in many ways.  It has a trinity system in place for icons of worship, it became prominent through its persecution of other beliefs in a widespread area, and its symbol is similar to a standard cross.

      Lamest creed ever tbh. Bad devotion reward items, bad sales catalogues, and false gods. According to the lore it's basically a cult of Devara's Light... that's probably why it's not as good as other creeds with actual gods. Iron Ones are the exception tho, they just that badass.

      • Stock size depends on Devotion?16 Mar 2016 10:28  

        I summoned a blacksmith yesterday and wanted to buy the Corsair's Backsword and Kureimoa. Neither of which was available though. Does the stock of a merchant, blacksmith etc. perhaps depend on the level of Devotion? Or is the stock list on this page not correct?
