In general, Clans allows players to party up with others to create a clan/faction. As a clan, you can claim an area of land and create a base. You can choose to make traps and store gear in your base, or to go out and fight others! You can choose to go to war with other factions for rewards and resources. Alternatively, players do not have to associate themselves with a faction and can instead wander around the game, playing alone.
Alliances with different Clans are definitely an option if both sides opt for peaceful relations. Just as easily as one can ally someone, they can un-ally them. Scamming is also allowed as long as it is not related to the real world.
Clans has a currency which we call gold. There are multiple ways to get it. Firstly, gold can be acquired by killing other players. 4% of their gold will drop onto the ground, and you can pick it up. That's not the only way, of course. You can trade 1000 Gems once a day for 16,000 gold, and you can collect your daily 500 gold from Carter the Creeper in the Clans Hub. You can also mine for other materials and sell them in the shops for gold as well.
Alternatively, you can mine for ores in fields and sell them as well as collect resources around the map and bring them to the shop for a reward. The ores respond after a defined amount of time, which is dependent on how many players are currently online. Ores will automatically be smelted upon mining if they are mined in fields. The last place to gain currency is through farming. Farming was buffed in the latest season once again, and farming potatoes, and especially mushrooms, will get you a hefty amount of money at the shop if some work is put in!
In the Clans game mode, your pre-defined builds from Champions on the network are saved, with the exception of if they have any disabled skills. Once putting on a set of either leather, gold, chainmail, iron or diamond, you can apply your Champions skills can be applied to weapons and armor using Enchantment Tables. Sets can both be crafted using ores found in fields and around the map, as well as bought from the Shops!
Tip: Ranger armor can be crafted by placing gold and iron ingots in a checkered pattern in the crafting grid. A full ranger set has a material cost of 14 gold and 10 iron or 14 iron and 10 gold.
A set of armor from Shops costs 12,000 gold. If iron weapons are added the cost is 14,500.
Spawns: Spawns are a zone that are found at the North and South of the map. This is where you start out and respawn when you die. There is a villager who can teleport you to the other spawn, the shops, or your clan home. (If set) You should use /map in order to be able to navigate around the world.
The Fields: The Fields is an area where you can mine for diamonds, iron, and gold. Ores respawn over time. Don't let down your guard; people can attack you at any time!
The Shops: Found at the East and West of the map, you can sell materials, buy them, buy clan energy, and much more. This is a safe zone where you can not be attacked.
The Borderlands: A dangerous place where you can get lost easily if you don't know coordinates. You can't use your map here. This place is where the events occur and be careful; other clans and their allies will go try to kill the boss and will try to kill you too.
The Altar: Found in the borderlands at the coordinates 350, -1000 (x,z). This is the location where you can start raids.
Legendries are unique weapons or tools that are custom modeled items and have a special ability. Legendries can be acquired from events with a very low drop rate.
Currently, there are a total of nine legendries.
Meridian Scepter: Shoots projectiles up to 30 blocks away
Alligators Tooth: Quick movement in the water. Does 12 damage in water, and 8 damage out of it.
Giant's Broadsword: Hold right-click to heal you and give you Slowness 3. Cannot attack while healing.
Windblade: Hold right-click to fly. A bar above the hotbar indicates the charges.
Scythe of the Fallen Lord: Hit people for instant regeneration. Only obtainable from the Charles Witherton raid.
Magnetic Maul: Pulls players toward you. Deals inverse knockback.
Runed Pickaxe: Pickaxe that has the ability of instant mine. Also gives user haste effect.
Knights Greatlance: Charge forward and deal extra damage.
Hyper Axe: 50% reduced hit delay allowing easy combos. Right-click to use "Hyper Rush". Hyper Rush gives speed 1 by default and can be increased up to speed 3 by applying a haste rune.
World Events are Events that occur in Clan. A player can earn loot and even Legendries from them
This mighty beast has the ability to kill players who try and attack it quickly! Caution is advised when fighting this great beast. It can hurl blocks at you and spawn earthquakes from nowhere! This will drop 1 iron token and a random item drop. The Iron Wizard spawns once about every hour.
With the power of its minions at its side, it's no laughing matter either. The Skeleton King has 30 Undead Warriors and 15 Undead Archers with the ability to deal up to 5 hearts of damage depending on what armor you are wearing. This will drop 1 iron token and a random item drop. The Skeleton King spawns once about every hour.
Charles Witherton Raid
Finally, we have Charles Witherton boss. The only boss that drops a specific legendary. Upon killing it, there is a 45% chance of a "Scythe of the Fallen Lord" to drop. Read the Legendaries section for more. To fight this boss you must bring two iron tokens to an altar. Up to 10 people can join you to fight this boss. Upon activation, those standing on the altar will be teleported to a realm where they must complete a plethora of difficult challenges to finally fight the boss, Charles the wither. With 5000 health, if you aren't prepared you are dead.
The Undead City is located in the borderlands. Undead Archers and Undead Warriors spawn within the radius of the Undead City. The undead mobs drop emeralds as well as other loot. In the city are towers which have chests upon them. Left-click on a chest to open it. Each chest gives random loot.
The nether is accessible after killing a boss or purchasing a rune amplifier. A portal will spawn in one of the shops if activated by a rune amplifier. Otherwise, the portal will spawn were a boss was killed. Undead mobs such as Undead Archers, Undead Warriors, and Ghasts spawn in the nether. Upon killing an Undead mob it can drop a variety of loot including diamonds, iron, leather, gold, or even runes. See below for more information. The mobs in a rune amplifier have a higher drop rate of runes.
This event is always active on weekends and does not impact other events. The Merchant can trade a variety of goods from armor to rares. The Merchant only accepts emeralds as payment for their goods. The Merchant will be located somewhere in the borderlands. Once it is found its location is announced and displayed in a similar way to events. After a while, the merchant will move to a new location and will reset. Also found in the borderlands are duplicate or fake Merchants. When a fake Merchant is found it will not announce its location.
This event is an event that occurs sometimes when night begins to fall at any point in time, and lasts for the full duration of that night. In this event, Undead Warriors and Undead Archers (the same ones found in the Undead City, Nether, Charles Witherton raid and Skeleton King events) spawn freely all over the map in large groups, which drop emeralds when killed. Undead Warriors still have their lunge ability in this event. This event is particularly deadly to players with no armour, so for most players who aren't in a clan/faction, it is discouraged for them to try and fight it alone, especially without an armor class equipped. This is the rarest event that naturally spawns in the clans event rotation and is not affected by the progression or starting of other naturally occurring events, which means it and the events around it have no affect on it's chance of occurring.
Upon purchasing a rune amplifier, or killing a boss, a nether portal will spawn in a select location with the coordinates posted on screen for the entire server. Entering this portal will teleport you to the custom nether of Clans. There are a total of 10 generators spawning in dangerous mobs. Killing them has a 5% chance to drop Runes, which can be applied to armor, weapons, and legendaries to add the only enchantments available in Clans. Runes enable things like Sharpness, Fire Aspect, and even can give you a speed effect for X number of seconds. Variables like how much sharpness and how long the fire lasts are determined randomly upon applying runes to your weapons.
Clans were previously playable on BetterMC and NautilusGaming, servers which merged with Mineplex. In these prior versions, the armor that players equipped determined their class, and skills were selected via enchantment tables. Even before BetterMC, the game was available on AusMC.
Bases were only able to be raided when a majority of faction members were online and were typically built using stone bricks. Stone bricks had the ability to withstand multiple blasts of TNT, a rare block. TNT generators were available to create the said block, but took a long time; due to its rarity, TNT was a viable trading product.
