Clan Academy

The level requirement for a character to join a Clan Academy has changed from level 40 or lower (the character must not have completed the second class transfer) to level 75 or lower (the character must not have completed the third class transfer). Accordingly, the graduation requirement from the Clan Academy has changed from level 40 or higher, with completion of the second class transfer, to level 75 or higher, with completion of the third class transfer.

To sponsor a Clan Academy apprentice, a clan member must now be of level 76 or higher and have completed the third class transfer. With the Goddess of Destruction launch, all previous sponsor relationships have been annulled. Apprentices must be appointed new sponsors who meet the new sponsorship requirements.

New Clan Academy apprentice skills have been added to the game. These skills stack with other clan buffs. These skills can be used by a sponsor or a clan leader on any Clan Academy apprentice.

A sponsor cannot use the Academy Precept Level 1 skill at these times:

  • After the Clan Academy apprentice graduates.
  • After the apprentice leaves the clan or is expelled from the clan.
  • After the sponsor leaves the clan or is expelled from the clan.
  • After the clan is disbanded.

A clan leader cannot use the Academy Precept Level 2 skill at these times:

  • After the clan undergoes a leadership transfer.
  • After the clan is disbanded.

When an apprentice graduates from the Clan Academy, the clan now receives 290 to 2,000 Clan Reputation points instead of 190 to 650. In addition, 1,000 Clan Reputation points are awarded for every 10 apprentices who graduate from the Clan Academy.

The quests that a Clan Academy sponsor and apprentice can take on together have changed. The old quests, The Leader and the Follower, and To Lead and Be Led, have been removed. They are replaced with new quests.

The stats of the Academy Circlet item have changed:

  • The circlet is now acquired when a level 40 or higher Clan Academy apprentice completes the Follow Me quest with his or her sponsor.
  • The circlet can no longer be purchased from Blacksmith Pinter.
  • If a character of level 40 to 75 dies while equipped with the Academy Circlet, the XP loss penalty is reduced by half.
  • The circlet cannot be traded or dropped, but it can be stored in a warehouse or destroyed.

The Mentor Ring has been added to the game. The ring can only be worn by a Clan Academy apprentice or graduate. It is an A-Grade ring that gives M. Def. +55 and MP +22. It cannot be traded, dropped, crystallized, stored in a clan warehouse, shared via the Dimensional Merchant, or used while in the Olympiad. The ring can be destroyed or stored in a private warehouse.

The Clan Oath set can no longer be purchased from Blacksmith Pinter. Clan Oath sets already existing in-game will not be deleted.

The combat relationship between apprentices and enemies has changed. Apprentices of level 70 or higher now have the same relationship to enemies as other clan members. If an apprentice of level 70 or higher kills or is killed by an opposing clan member, Clan Reputation is not changed. All apprentices can now participate in PvP activities such as clan wars, castle sieges, territory wars, and fortress battles, just like other clan members.
