Clans are large social groups in Blade & Soul, allowing players to band together to achieve greatness, defend their ideals, and seek out adventure and rewards. A clan must be aligned to either the Cerulean Order or Crimson Legion; in other words, everyone in the Clan must have joined the same faction. No unaligned martial artists allowed! If players wish to join a clan that belongs to another faction than what they originally chose, they have the option of transferring their faction alignment (assuming the other faction is accepting new members). This will cost a small fee and gained Faction Rank. There are many benefits to being a member of a clan.
The clan system is split into two sections.
This type of clan has most of the benefits of the competitive clans but can not partake in clan battles and is usually used for finding groups or just chat in general
This type of clan has all the perks of a social clan but it allows the clan leader to choose a battle commander and join in competitive clan battles
In order to create a clan, the player must submit a proposal to a Faction Clan Supervisor. This proposal will include a clan name that meets their requirements and an application fee. The requirements for the clan name are:
- Must be between 3 and 20 characters long
- One space is allowed, but not at the beginning or end
- May not contain profanity or other banned words
Those looking for a clan will be able to search through existing clans via the Dragonspire, and from there, be able to contact a clan member for an invitation. Only those who have received an invitation can join. Invitations are only able to be sent by Clan Elders (by default) and above.
Competitive clans will require the clan to be level 2 to be able to advertise their clan in the Dragonspire or when you press H
Social clans are normally advertised by the system and are picked to be on the main screen when you press H or in the dragonspire
