Clans are groups of players associating themselves under a single name, similar to a team, but potentially on a much larger scale. A Fan Site Kit is available for download to help clans make their websites look legitimate. The Kit provides various renders, banners, images, and more.

Advantages

Dojo

Main article: Clan Dojo

The Dojo is only available to Clans, and provides a "home base" that can be utilized by any clan member. The Dojo also houses facilities necessary for Research and Trading.

Research

Main article: Research

Research can be started and funded by clan members within the Dojo. This unlocks unique blueprints that cannot be acquired through other means, with the exception of purchasing items through the Market using Platinum.

Trading

Main article: Trade System

Clans can construct Trading Posts within their Dojo to allow clan members to take advantage of the Trade System.

Dark Sectors

Main article: Dark Sectors

Clans can make use of the Orokin Lab within the Dojo to construct Solar Rails, which can be deployed to grant public access to Dark Sectors.

Any Tenno that utilizes the Solar Rail pays a clan-set tribute (or "tax") on both Credits and Resources collected during the Dark Sector mission. In return, various boosters are applied to any earnings or drops within the Dark Sector mission, typically resulting in a greater abundance of Credits, Resources, and other drops than one would see in regular missions.

Joining / Creation

Create clan

Joining a clan is done by being invited to a clan and accepting the invite.

Clans can be created in the game by selecting the communication tab, then selecting "Clan", and within that, "Start your own clan". Your clan will be created after typing in an appropriate name.

If the user is the Warlord of the clan, while in the "Communication", "Clan" menu, clicking on the username and select the option to leave will delete the clan.

Clan Tier

Clans are organized into several tiers, each of which grants a Clan a certain maximum amount of members and regulates inter-clan competition. At the same time, each tier has a direct impact on the cost of all items or research funded by the clan. This is done in an effort to keep gameplay fair according to the size of a clan.

Clan Tier is upgraded by constructing the Barracks associated with the desired clan tier. Clan Tier upgrades must be done in order, ascending from one tier to the next until the final tier is reached.

It should be noted that once a Clan's tier is upgraded, the change is permanent and irreversible. No in-game mechanic for reversal exists, nor will Digital Extremes support reverse the upgrades, even if they were accidental. As such, caution should be exercised during Dojo construction to prevent unintended tier upgrades.

The table below outlines each tier, the member capacity of each tier, and the Barracks required for each tier.

Clan Tier Multiplier

As mentioned in the Clan Tier section, each tier incurs additional costs for research, rooms, and decorations[citation needed]. This is done in order to balance gameplay, ensuring that clans with many active members don't rapidly outpace clans belonging to lower tiers. This results in an overall balanced gameplay and ensures fair costs for each tier.

To aid in understanding and describing construction and research costs, the multiplier that determines the total cost for activities in a clan is referred to as the Clan Tier Multiplier, or just the Tier Multiplier. The cost values for each tier are calculated by taking the base cost for a Ghost clan and multiplying it by the given tier's Tier Multiplier, with the result representing the final cost for the given tier.

The list below displays examples of the scaling costs of each tier as a result of the Tier Multiplier mechanic. See Clan Tier for the actual multiplier values for each clan tier.

  • Ghost Tier - All research and funding costs are at the base level, as this tier has no multiplier.
  • Shadow Tier - Required to pay Credits6430,000 credits to fund a project with a base cost of Credits6410,000.
  • Storm Tier - Required to pay Ferrite64 6,000 to fund a project with a base cost of Ferrite64 600.
  • Mountain Tier - Required to pay Salvage64 19,500 to fund a project with a base cost of Salvage64 650.
  • Moon Tier - Required to pay Circuits64 50,000 to fund a project with a base cost of Circuits64 500.

Interestingly, it would appear that the in-game costs displayed to players are not the result of a live or real-time calculation that utilizes the Tier Multiplier. This can be observed when reviewing the cost of Forma to fund Dojo rooms. In several instances, the first three clan tiers may require a single Forma each, with the last two jumping to much higher levels, such as Mountain requiring eight Forma and Moon requiring fifteen. Outside of Forma, however, the Tier Multiplier is observed to directly dictate all clan costs.

Alliances

AllianceEmblem
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

Clans Rank and Roles

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.

Clan creators will always start with the Warlord rank, and will have all available roles assigned to them by default.

Role Descriptions

The table below provides descriptions of the capabilities each role provides clan members when assigned.

Default Role Assignments

New clans are created with the default set of role assignments. Both assignments and rank names may be changed by clan members with the appropriate roles.

Clan Emblem

Main article: Clan Emblem

The Clan Emblem is a purchasable equipment that displays a holographic image of your clan's logo on your Warframe's shoulder. You can also add the Clan Emblem to the side of a Sentinel or Kubrow
