Sunspear rank is a title available to characters who go through the Nightfall campaign. A character's rank in the Order of the Sunspears is determined by the number of Sunspear Promotion Points (SPP) accrued, which are collected as quest and mission rewards, by killing certain monsters while under the effect of a bounty, by turning in books and by vanquishing areas in Istan and Kourna.

For Elonian characters, progress in the Sunspear Rank title track is required to complete:

Foreign characters have no requirement to progress in this title, but through primary quest rewards and other circumstances, will earn enough points to achieve the rank of Sunspear Castellan simply by playing through the Nightfall campaign.

Hero skill points

Main article: Hero skill point

Rising in Sunspear rank also awards Hero skill points: 1 point for each of the first two ranks, and 2 per rank thereafter, for a total of 18 points per character. These can be spent at a hero skill trainer.

Sunspear skills

Main article: Sunspear skill

These are a set of 11 PvE-only skills that a character can learn which are linked to the character's progress in the Sunspear title track. Unlike normal skills, these skills will not be unlocked on your account, making them unavailable for use by PvP characters and heroes. These are acquired for 1 Hero Skill Point, but cost no gold.

To get your first Sunspear skill, earn the rank of Sunspear Sergeant. Then speak with Runduk, the Sunspear Rank officer in Sunspear Great Hall. For the other 10, earn more ranks and obtain them from the Hero skill trainer at Sunspear Great Hall, Kamadan, or the Command Post. See Sunspear skill for complete details.

Sunspear skills cannot be purchased using hero skill points until you have a secondary profession.


  • Once a character has reached the rank of Commander, Sunspear Scouts in Istan will no longer give Sunspear bounties.
    • The scouts on Istan also seem to consider the player's level. A high level Elonian player may not be granted the bounty, even when that player has a low Sunspear rank.
  • Once a character has reached the rank of Castellan, all scouts/priests will no longer give Sunspear bounties in normal mode. Progress past Castellan is only possible in Hard Mode. There is no cap for the bounties in Hard Mode.
  • You can acquire from and turn in a Normal Mode Night Falls book via Captain Ahkenchu only if your Sunspear rank is below Sunspear Castellan (8).
Historical note: Prior to the Nov. 13th, 2008, game update, this title contributed towards the Favor of the Gods.
