Clan names may be comprised of up to 16 alphabetical and numerical characters and cannot include spaces or special characters. You cannot mix characters from different alphabets. If such a name already exists, you'll get a message.

Dissolving a clan

Clan - dissolving clan confirmation.jpg

A clan can be dissolved from the same NPCs (see above). Choose the corresponding option in the NPC dialogue and confirm you wish to dissolve your clan. It takes seven calendar days to dissolve a clan. During the period you can still cancel the process. Clan skills are restricted until the dissolution occurs, but clan chat and clan bulletin boards may still be used. A clan cannot be dissolved when involved in a clan war. If a war is not accepted, the clan can still be dissolved. Members who leave the clan during those seven days will still be unable to join any other clan for one calendar day, but once the clan is dissolved the members who remained can join other clans immediately. Any property belonging to a clan will be transferred to NPCs once it's been dissolved.

Clan Leadership Transfer

A clan leader may transfer their rights to other clan members. It's a last resort measure when strictly necessary. A clan leader transfer happens after regular maintenance time.

Joining a clan

Before joining a clan, only 2 buttons are available to your character: "Clan Entry" and "Penalty". In the "Clan Entry" system, if you don't belong to any clan, you can choose one of the ways to join it:

  • Public - a way to join a clan via application. It doesn't need permission from a clan member entitled to invite new clan members.
  • Allow - a way to join a clan via application which needs permission from a clan member entitled to invite new clan members.


Managing a clan

Inviting others to a clan

Clan leader and clan members with privileges can invite other characters who don't belong to any clan. To invite a character to a clan, target them and use Alt+N, then press Invite in the lower part of the clan window.

You can invite a character only if they (or you clan) don't have any penalties restricting their enrollment/acceptance into a clan.

Such clan leaders and clan members with privileges can use the "Clan Entry" button to announce recruitment, choosing a way to join their clan: Public or Allow Public or Allow (Public is chosen by default).

  • Public - a way to join a clan via application. It doesn't need permission from a clan member entitled to invite new clan members.
  • Allow - a way to join a clan via application which needs permission from a clan member entitled to invite new clan members.

Leaving a clan

Any clan member except the leader can leave a clan at any time. Press (Alt+N) and then choose "Leave". When you press the button, a message appears telling you about the penalty for leaving the clan and then you'll see the confirmation window. When a character leaves a clan, a penalty is applied - it's impossible to enter any other clan for 24 hours.

Восклицательный знак.png Warning!

If your character is a member of a clan, you need to leave it before:

  • Deleting the character
  • Changing its name
  • Moving the character to a different server

Dismissing a character from a clan

Clan leader and the members with privileges can dismiss characters from their clan. In Clan interface (Alt+N) choose a character, double-click its name and press "Dismiss". When you press the button, a message appears telling you about the penalty for dismissing a clan member and then you'll see the confirmation window. When a character is dismissed from a clan, a penalty is applied on the clan and on the character: the clan cannot invite anyone in 24 hours, and the character cannot enter any other clan for 24 hours.


Clan management interface

Managing clan privileges

Clan privileges are divided into 5 levels (each of them can be assigned to any specific clan member) and 3 ranks: clan leader, elite clan members and just clan members. To open the interface, in Clan Interface (Alt+N) press the "Privileges" button.


To assign some rights to a clan member, double click the character's name in the clan list, in the interface window next to "Privileges" press the "Change Privileges" button, and then you'll see a dropdown list with the privileges levels.
