When I press
Gon the keyboard, my character summons down my banner on the spot. It hangs around for a few seconds, then disappears.
What is the purpose of this?
“Dropping your banner” with G is an emote that serves no immediate function.1
At best, it’s a customizable emote that shows off your swag—your in-game achievements convert to banner adornments. You can also change the banner’s color, sigil, and shape to reflect your taste.
Dropping the banner will create a marker on the map for party members (orange arrow, turns to pulsing circle when close)
