A Battle Standard is a reusable item that can be used to grant a buff to certain allies within range of the banner, similar to a totem. Using a Battle Standard causes it to be placed at the player's location; Battle Standards are stationary and cannot be moved once they have been placed. Battle Standards will despawn after a set duration, or if the player moves too far from the Standard, or dies.

There are several types of Battle Standard, with varying effects, range, duration and cooldown. Each is obtainable by different means. Each Battle Standard is available in a different form depending on the character's faction.

PvP Battle Standards
