Any character over level 10 may create a clan. When a character has reached level 10 or higher, he or she can go to the Warehouse Chief NPC to create a clan. Clan names may be comprised of up to 16 alphabetical and numerical characters and cannot include spaces or special characters.
A clan member may leave a clan, but they will suffer penalties as a result.
If the clan leader withdraws from the clan, the clan is automatically dissolved and receives penalties.
A clan leader may transfer their rights to other clan members. The leader must request the clan leader transfer from an NPC who is in charge of clan activities. The new clan leader will assume their new role during the next regularly scheduled maintenance time. The clan leader transfer should still be completed even when the server is down unexpectedly. A clan leader transfer may be cancelled anytime prior to the regular maintenance time.
A clan leader may dissolve the clan without the prior consent of the members. Dissolving a clan is done in the same manner as creating a clan, through the appropriate NPCs.
It takes seven calendar days to dissolve a clan. Clan skills are restricted until the dissolution occurs, but clan chat and clan bulletin boards may still be used. A clan cannot be dissolved when involved in a clan war. Members who leave the clan during those seven days will still be unable to join any other clan for one calendar day, but once the clan is dissolved the members who remained can join other clans immediately.
A clan leader who dissolves his/her clan receives experience penalties comparable to one death and cannot create a new clan for another ten days. In addition, all the skills and fame that the clan possesses will be lost.
