Teachings of Ballad

Teachings of Ballad info card

Ballad's first book, Teachings of Ballad, was published after his death. 

The contents of the book mainly come from Ballad's speeches in various temples. 

It is also the record of "Death and Rebirth" that Millelith spreads to humans.

Wishes for peace and solace, prayers for all living things. I'd often hear these mumbled by the voice of a young man offering incense, but from where I could not tell.

A book that narrates the tragic tale of a certain individual's life. Its contents are no doubt deeply moving, but it's rather long and doesn't seem to be very popular among its target audience.

Nowadays, however, the birds have become more common and have grown to be a sign of portentous events on the horizon rather than good fortune. They usually carry their gold in their hands, and upon death, this gold has a chance of being dropped by them.

This material can be used to ascend 4-star adventurers, and to level up more advanced adventurers and dragons.
