Combat Badges are "perks" which give bonuses related to the badges. Badges are awarded for leveling up combat ribbons.

Most badges have 3 levels: bronze, silver and gold. The higher-tiered badges provide a stronger effect, and are unlocked by further leveling up the combat ribbon associated with that badge.

Standard members' characters can wear one badge, whilst veteran members' characters can wear two at a time.

Combat Badges[edit | edit source]

It should be noted that combat badges do not transfer between characters. Each character must level up his own ribbons and unlock his own badges. This takes some effort by the player and so you should level your characters according to what function you want them to serve.
