Rank is your character's title; each role has nine ranks, and they show the progression of your character's experience in a more natural way than the experience level. The main example is when your Quest Leader examines your rank (rather than experience level) before admitting you on the Quest.

Rank is shown on the first status line, right after your character's name.
