Clans are groups of players associating themselves under a single name, like a team. A Fan Site Kit is available to help clans make their sites look legitimate with various renders, banners, images and more.
Joining and Creation
Joining a clan is done by being invited to a clan and accepting the invite.
Clans can be created in the game by clicking on the “Clan” button on the top right of your screen (the shield icon) and then typing in a name of a clan that has not yet been created.
If you are the Warlord of the clan, while in the Dojo you can right click on your name and select the option to leave, in which you can delete the clan.
Clan members can construct a home base for their clan and access the unique features that lie within.
In the Clan Dojo, clan members can initiate researches to gain access to special weapons and equipment.
Clans can setup a Trading Post to gain advantages with the Trade System.
Dark Sectors are areas in the Solar System that are ruled by a specific clan. In there clans can collect taxes from any incoming Tenno with a return for an abundance of more desirable resources.
Clans are divided by five (six) tiers to keep competitions and Dojo prices “fair.” The rankings are determined by the highest level of Barracks in a Clan Dojo. Thus, if a 14 member clan builds a Mountain Barrack, they will have to compete against other Mountain Tier clans as well as pay the resource cost for rooms of a 100-300 member Mountain clan. There is currently no way to downgrade your Clan’s Tier, including removing members, deleting the Barracks, and going to Warframe Support; upgrading is permanent as well as the resource costs for that particular tier.
Ghost Clans may have up to 10 members. Clans with fewer than 10 members can recruit until they have 10. To grow farther, they must first build a Shadow Barracks.
Shadow Clans may have up to 30 members. Clans with fewer than 30 members can recruit until they have 30. To grow farther, they must first build a Storm Barracks.
Storm Clans may have up to 100 members. Clans with fewer than 100 members can recruit until they have 100. To grow farther, they must first build a Mountain Barracks.
Mountains Clan may have up to 300 members. Clans with fewer than 300 members can recruit until they have 300. To grow farther, they must first build a Moon Barracks.
Moon Clans may have up to 1000 members. Clans with fewer than 1,000 members can recruit until they have 1,000. A 1,000 person clan cannot grow larger, but they may continue to create clan halls.
- Main article: Alliance
Multiple clans with mutual interests can unite and form an alliance. An alliance can house a maximum of 4000 members, regardless of the number of clans. Clans in an alliance can share a Vault and join force in a Dark Sector conflict. If a Dark Sector is successfully occupied by an alliance, any revenue gained from credits and resource tributes will be shared across all clans.
Ranks and Roles
There are 8 ranks and roles available in a clan. Ranks are not strictly seniority or levels of authority, but rather a set of “Roles” (privileges) for a player within the clan. Players are assigned ranks by anyone with the Promote role (up to their own rank by default) or Regulator Role (top 2 by default) by clicking on the member in the clan view of the contacts window in game. The clan Warlord is able to change the rank names as of Update 9. It can be anything, and can be change without your approval.
A clan creator will always start as a “Warlord” and have all roles available to him/her.
The following is the default role assignments with the default rank names.
These may be named and assigned differently within different clans.
|Ruler||May change the roles of other ranks and edit the “clan message”|
|Recruiter||Can invite others to clan|
|Regulator||can discharge/kick from clan|
|Promotion||can promote others to less than or equal to own rank|
|Architect||can draw from clan coffers to build or destroy sections of the Clan Dojo|
|Host||can host the Clan Dojo|
|Treasurer||can withdraw resources from clan vault and modify additional trading taxes|
|Tech||can queue Dojo Research|
|Tactician||can begin construction of Solar Rails in the Dojo, and can deploy completed Rails in the Solar Chart|
