so I'm not sure if this was officially announced but I heard from the grape vine that when you create a character you get to choose something called a guardian and also a name day. The guardians are associated with an element and also a specific name day. like 1st moon 6th sun etc. However when you pick the guardian you don't also take its name day but can chose which ever you want. I thought this was pretty cool because choosing a guardian it seems is kinda of like ancient Greek cities where the god looking over the city represents the city and its proficiencies. IE Aries, Sparta, Athena, Athens. It seems to me that these choices could effect your stats or even how certain elements effect you, or maybe on a specific name day you do extremely well. Food for thought.

""Gods/Guardians
“The Twelve” gods have had their names revealed. When you create your character, you choose a god to allign yourself with. It is unclear at this point how a god will affect your character.

* Nald’thal, the Traders
* Nophica, the Matron
* Azeyma, the Warden
* Thaliak, the Scholar
* Llymlaen, the Navigator
* Halone, the Fury
* Byregot, the Builder
* Althyk, the Keeper
* Nymeria, the Spinner
* Oschon, the Wanderer
* Menphina, the Lover
* Rhalgr, the Destroyer

Nameday
Along with choosing your Guardian, you get to pick something similar to a month and day when your character was born. Details on this option are sparse.""

Is that all we have came up with? Its prolly a Dev cheat of sorts. I'd love to know how to max out Guardian Effects by choosing the one right day for any given guardian. So far I cannot find much information on character creation guardian choosing, and possible multiplying your elemental powers/resists. There has to be a Zenith when the effect is most potent!

As yet (at least) there is no effect depending on the Guardian or name day you chose for your character.

yeah the devs said a long time ago that they had not added any effect but that they would probably do so in the future. However, it would be minor and non-gamebreaking.

Bit of a necro, but for what it's worth, I remember reading a dev post saything that, yes there is no current function of the name day or guardian, but that when they do implement it, we would all be given the ability to change our guardian and day so we can benefit from the system in what way we would have done if we knew of the benefit before making our character.

In summation, the equation is as follows:

[Any Guardian] + [Any Day] = [Maximum Possible Effect]
