A while back, we showed you how to make a clan in Destiny 2, but what if you prefer everybody’s other favorite space-based looter shooter?
Once you know what you’re doing, creating a clan in Warframe is a snap, it may seem a bit intimidating at first if you’re brand new to this.
Fear not, brave Tenno. Our guide will have you and your clanmates battling the Grineer together in no time.
How to start a clan in Warframe
- Boot up Warframe and log into your account
- In game, open the main menu
- Select Communication > Clan
- Select “Start Your Own Clan”
- Type in the name of your clan. Make it something good; it’ll cost you 200 platinum to change it later.
- Now, open your clan page and select Clan Management to start inviting your friends to join your newly created clan
Why you should start a Warframe clan
Warframe’s clan system offers a number of benefits beyond just making it easier to group up with your friends.
The clan dojo
When you create your clan (or join another player’s), you’ll receive a blueprint for a Dojo Key, which you can forge for 1500 Credits, 1 Morphic, 500 Ferrite, and 500 Polymer Bundles. Note that it takes 12 hours of forge time to complete the key once you’ve turned in the mats.
Once that’s done, however, you’ll be able to enter your dojo via the Clan Menu. These special locations are special hubs for you and your clan to use to socialize with one another, build monumental structures, and show off your best FashionFrame.
Research and trading
Clans may start research projects that unlock unique blueprints that would otherwise cost precious Platinum to purchase.
They may also construct Trading Posts within their dojos to trade mods, blueprints, and platinum with other clans.
Clan roles and permissions
There are a number of roles that clan members can be granted, and each of them carries a different responsibility and/or privilege.
The clan founder will automatically be named the clan’s Warlord, although they can also grant that title to other clan members. The clan’s Warlord may not exit the clan without dissolving it permanently unless another player has been granted the same role.
Players may also be granted the Architect permission, which enables them to construct additional rooms for their dojo up to a maximum of 128 rooms.
Those with Treasurer permissions can pull from the clan’s vault when contributing resources to a clan project.
There are additional roles and permissions that may be granted to clan members, and you can learn more about them at the game’s wiki.
Finally, being part of a clan allows players to construct a Railjack in their dojo. These new additions to the game allow you and other clanmates to fly your own giant space ships and engage in space battles.
But be prepared to work for this. Constructing these ships is a big task and will require resources from everyone in the clan.
Forming alliances with other clans
One of the more unique features of Warframe’s clan systems is the alliance mechanic. Clans may team up with one another to form alliances of up to 4000 players.
Alliances are created and joined using a system nearly identical to the clan system described above.
Clans within an alliance may share their vaults, share the spoils of certain challenges together, and more.
Now that you’ve created your Warframe clan and maybe joined an alliance, start working on ranking your clan up.
Warframe’s clan system is satisfyingly deep, and there are plenty of rewards to be earned as you grow and ascend through the ranks.
If you’re really ambitious, you might even build your own Fan Site using the official kit from Digital Extremes.
Better yet, create an account with us at Clutch, and start sharing your clan’s exploits with the rest of our growing community. We can’t wait to see you there.
