Introduced in Update 2.0, Clans represent the main social feature, second only to the Friend System, in Dragon Mania Legends, allowing Trainers to get together under the same banner and take on various activities. Upon joining a Clan, Trainers can raise a Clan Dragon with fellow Clan members and battle other Clans to achieve greater success and earn unique rewards.
The Clan Fortress is the base of operations for Clans and all aspects related to them. Selecting the Fortress and choosing the option will open the main page of member access. This page can also be accessed through the tab in the left-hand side of the screen. The image of both access options will reflect the banner of the league the Clan is currently in. The Clan interface can also be accessed through the Friend System interface. This access button displays the Clan's name, their level, their Coat of Arms, the time left until the current ongoing event is over or, conversely, the time left until the next event begins, and the Trainer's rank.
Creating or Joining a Clan
Trainers need to be, at least, Level 25 to join a Clan and Level 30 to create a Clan, and they can only be part of one Clan at the same time. In order to join or create a Clan, the Trainer must head to the Clan Fortress, select it and then press the button. From there on, a list of Clans will be displayed, as well as the panel. The same panel can be accessed through the tab.
If the Trainer chooses to join a Clan, they can either select one from the available list under the panel and inspect it through the option, press the option to choose one of the Top 50 Clans, or the button to search a Clan by their name, by language, or by both. Additionally, if the Trainer is clanless, the button will appear at the top of the panel and pressing it will randomly add the Trainer to an open Clan.
If the Trainer chooses to create a Clan, the option must be chosen from the panel. In the window that pops up, they can choose the name of the Clan (the Clan name can not be changed once chosen, thus the name must be decided upon wisely), choose the Clan crest through the button, select the language (this represents the usual language the members communicate in and will not affect the interface of the game) through the button, add a description, choose the status (open, closed, or join by request) of the Clan, and enable or disable the profanity filter for the chat. When editing the crest, the top row will show only the Dragons the Trainer currently has, in the order they obtained them, while the bottom row will show only the shields that are currently available to a Level 1 Clan. When the Trainer decides on the desired Dragon and shield, the button must be pressed to confirm the choice. Once everything is settled upon, the button must be pressed and 1,500,000 Gold, the cost to create a Clan, must be paid.
The main page shows details about the Clan to which a member belongs and has several buttons below it for various Clan activities.
The header of the Clan shows:
- Clan name - There is a limit of 24 characters for the name.
- Coat of Arms - The Clan's distinctive heraldic bearings (Dragon chosen to represent the Clan) and shield.
- Clan level - The Clan Level is determined by the amount of Clan Experience earned.
- Current experience - Experience is earned through Clan Quests.
- Clan status - The current stance on accepting members.
- Clan message (description) - A public message or motto made up by the leader (limited to 100 characters).
- Search button - Used to look through all Clans on the same server and platform.
- Leave button - Used to leave the current Clan.
- Settings button (only available to the leaders, co-leaders and officers) - Used to edit the information about the Clan (only available to leaders and co-leaders; the leader also has the option to disband the Clan through the button if they are the only person in the Clan).
If the search button is chosen, the same panel and list of Clans will be shown only that when pressing the option, aside from the top Clans, the Trainer will also see the position of their Clan as well the Clans in its vicinity.
If the settings button is chosen, leaders and co-leaders can then press the button to make changes to the Clan header. This option will bring up the same window when creating a Clan, only that the option to change the name will be grayed out and more shields might be available to the Trainer, depending upon the current level of the Clan. Once the Trainer is done editing the header, they must select the button and pay the necessary cost of 150,000 Gold to proceed with saving the changes. Officers also have the option of accessing the settings, but they only have the option available.
When viewing the details of a Clan as a non-member, the Trainer can see the Clan's name, its Coat of Arms, its level, the maximum number of members it can have and the current number of members it has, the language, the description and the status. If the status is set to open and there are available openings in the Clan, the button will be displayed and the Trainer can press it to immediately join the Clan. If the status is set to join by request and there are available openings, the button will be displayed and the Trainer can press it to apply to the Clan, then wait until their request is reviewed by a member with the ability to accept or reject it. Trainers can not apply to multiple Clans at the same time, thus, if they had already applied to a Clan, they have to cancel their request or wait for it to be declined before applying to another Clan. The request can be cancelled by heading back to where they applied for the Clan, selecting the option, then confirming by pressing the button. No button is available if the status of the Clan is set to closed.
Additionally, under the Clan header, there is a list of the current members of the Clan showing their name, their avatar, their level and their rank. Next to their name, the existing option can be chosen to inspect their islands.
A Clan can have one of three statuses to indicate their current stance on accepting members:
- Open - Any person can join the Clan at any given time, without the need to wait for approval, as long as there are free spots.
- Join by request - Any person can apply to the Clan at any given time, as long as there are free spots, but they must receive approval in order to get into the Clan.
- Closed - No person can apply to the Clan under any given circumstances and no member, regardless of their rank, can send invitations to outside Trainers. The Clan must be set to either of the other statuses, by a person with appropriate permissions, in order to be able to accept members.
Clans start out with a maximum of 15 members allowed. Once certain levels have been reached, the limit on the number of members allowed will be increased. Various increases in Clan Level offers additional choices that can be used for the Clan's Coat of Arms.
|Level||Members||Clan Exp||Additional Shields Available|
More shields are available depending on the league that Clan is currently part of.
The Clan Chat is the interface where members can communicate to each other. It is always shown in the left of the screen whenever the front page of the Clan is accessed through either of the options. Whenever a members sends a message, their name and Clan Rank is shown, as well as the time they sent the message and the icon if they are the current MVP.
Messages are written at the top of the chat interface and then sent through the button (the message can also be sent through the enter key on the keyboard). The Trainers' equipped badge is shown in the left of their name. The names of other Trainers are colored in a lighter shade of blue while the main Trainer's name is not displayed. The messages of all Trainers are colored in black and those of the main Trainer are over a lighter shade of orange background while those of the other Trainers are over a light gray background. However, Trainers have the option to color their text by adding # and any number from 1 to 8 before their text. Additionally, the Messages are limited to 512 characters and profanity is censored with asterisks. Profanity, however, can be enabled or disabled when editing the Clan settings.
Apart from member messages, the Clan Chat also sends automated messages for whenever a Clan levels up or a Clan event started, who is elected the MVP of the event, who and when they completed a Legendary recipe, who joined, left or was removed from the Clan, who asks for donations, who and which Clan Dragon they changed, who and which characteristic of the Clan they changed. Automated messages are generally sent in light gray text over an even lighter gray background, but the color of text becomes green whenever a new Trainer joins the Clan.
If a Legendary recipe is completed, the automated message will be sent in white text over a purple background. During Clan events, if there are people who asked for donations, but have not received all the ingredients they asked for, whenever a Trainer is scrolling through the chat and said incomplete donation message leaves the viewable screen, the Trainer will see a number in a yellow-bordered shape indicating how many people have not received all the items they have asked for. Whenever a request for ingredients appears in the chat, other Trainers can donate by pressing the button in the right of the requested ingredient, and can also press the button to see how many times they have donated for that day. Enchantment Material can be requested from Clan members by selecting the button. The Trainer can request either 16 fair or 2 average material at once every 24 hours. Once a request is sent, the Trainer must either wait until a fellow Clanmate has donated the requested material or 24 hours before being able to send a new request. Donators will receive 1 Enchanted Trinket for 1 Fair Material and 6 Enchanted Trinkets for 1 Average Materials. A donator can donate up to a maximum of 24 times per day. Legendary and Divine materials can not be requested or donated.
If there are people who asked for donations, but have not received all the Material they asked for, whenever a Trainer is scrolling through the chat and said incomplete donation message leaves the viewable screen, the Trainer will see a number in a purple-bordered shape indicating how many people have not received all the items they have asked for. Whenever there is a new message, the icon will be shown in the top-right corner of the Clan-accessing option in the left of the screen.
This button can be used to access the Clan Quests. Clan Quests are various tasks that can be done by individual Clan members at any time to earn up to 1,000 Clan Coins per day, as well as various amounts of Clan experience . Trainers are given five quest options to choose from and only one quest can be selected at a time. Once the limit for Clan Coins is reached for that day, members can still continue on doing quests to gain experience. This experience is used to help the Clan grow in level and it no longer accumulates once the Clan reaches maximum level. Completing Clan Quests is the only way to gain this type of experience and between 90 and 130 experience can be given per quest. Additionally, these quests can be refreshed for free and will take 2 hours to do so, but the timer can be sped up with Gems. Multiple quests can be refreshed at the same time. The quest the Trainer desires to do has to be chosen by pressing the button. Once a quest is started, if the Trainer wishes to no longer do it, it can be refreshed through the button. Whenever the Trainer wishes to refresh through the latter button, an additional must be pressed to confirm the choice. When a quest is finished, a notification at the top of the screen will be shown and the Trainer must access the Clan Quest menu and then press the button to complete it.
There are several types of quests:
|Quest type||Requirements||Quantity Range|

In addition to quests, the Trainer can toggle between them and the chat through the tab and the tab. If the Trainer presses the button, they will be taken to the current active Clan Dragon (or the Enigma Egg if no Dragon has been hatched).
The Great Dragon Race, Sugar Rush and Clan Siege are the only available events for Clans. Clans can participate in these events only if they qualify by having a Clan Dragon fully hatched. For the duration of these events, Clan quests, in addition to the regular rewards, will give items needed for Clans to progress through the events. Clans will receive various rewards for completing milestone, as well as for their final placement at the end of the event, while the member with the highest score at the end of the event will become MVP and will receive the MVP Badge and an amount of Clan Coins which scales with Clan League their Clan is currently in.
There are five different leagues into which the Clans are grouped. Each league groups Clans that are of approximately the same strength in regard to Clan Events. The league leaderboard resets some time after the end of a Clan Event and the scores are determined by the Clan's progress in the event. Each league has several leaderboards, each having a maximum of 100 Clans. Clans are promoted and demoted in accordance to their final position on the leaderboard at the end of a Clan Event. The number of Clans that are promoted and demoted depends on the league: the top 5 Clans in League 1 are promoted to League; the top 10 Clans in League 2 are promoted to League 3 while the bottom 25 Clans are demoted to League 1; the top 20 Clans of League 3 and 4 are promoted to League 4 and 5, respectively, while the bottom 25 Clans of League 3 are demoted to League 2 and the bottom 35 of League 4 are demoted to League 3; the bottom 40 Clans in League 5 are demoted to League 4.
The league a Clan is currently in affects the prizes and requirements in Clan Events. More specifically, the amount of Clan Coins received from the leaderboard and milestone are in accordance to the Clan's league while the amount of Food and Gold depends on the Level Modifier. Additionally, the Clan Coins offered to the MVP are also different. All the Milestone Card Packs offer Dragon Pieces for the same Dragons, but the amount varies in accordance to the league. The Grand Prize Card Packs offer Dragon Pieces for all Clan Dragons. However, Pieces for Kutter can be obtained only from those packs awarded in League 4 and League 5 while Pieces for Boone can be obtained only from League 5. The amount of Dragon Pieces rewarded by Grand Prize Card Packs depend on the Clan's final position on the leaderboard and the amount is not affected by any league. Additionally, each league gives the Clan several other shields in addition to those unlocked through leveling.
|League||Shields Available||Milestone Card Pack||Grand Prize Card Pack||MVP Reward|
|1||None||1 per pack||All Clan Dragons
(except Kutter and Boone)
|2||None||2 per pack||750|
|3||3 per pack||1,000|
|4||4 per pack||All Clan Dragons (except Boone)||2,000|
|5||5 per pack||All Clan Dragons||3,000|
See Community Hatching for information on hatching Clan Dragons
Pressing the button will show either the Enigma Egg if there is no hatched Clan Dragon or the current active Dragon. Once the first Dragon is hatched, the image of the Enigma Egg will be replaced by whichever the current active Dragon is. If the Enigma Egg is shown, the Trainer can press the button to send an egg to their Hatchery.
Once the first Clan Dragon has been hatched, the becomes available and after being chosen it will bring up a window showing information of the current active Dragon's power, as well as the option to use it through the button. Additionally, in the right of the power button, there is also the option which will take the Trainer to the Clan's collection of Clan Dragons.
The active Clan Dragon can also be accessed from the outside by selecting the Clan Fortress, then pressing the Dragon's icon. In this very same screen, if there is an active Clan event, the time left until its end is shown just under the name of the Clan. If there is no active Clan event, then the time displayed is the one left until the next event.
See Clan Dragons for more information
In this section, Trainers can view the collection of Clan Dragons. Clan Dragons have a set number of matching Dragon Pieces which must be collected by the whole Clan through The Great Dragon Race events and require a collective Clan effort in hatching a specific number of eggs to acquire each Dragon. Additionally, Trainers with the appropriate rights can choose, through the button, which Clan Dragon is available to all the members. Once a Clan Dragon is activated for the entire Clan, 24 hours must pass before it can be changed by another Dragon.
Unlike regular Dragons, Clan Dragons can not be placed in Habitats, earn Gold, or fight in battles. Instead, they have special powers that can be activated by individual members for a limited time using Clan Coins. Only one Clan Dragon can be active at a time and the Clan Leader, co-leaders and officers can determine which one will be available. If the Clan Leader is absent for a period of 2 weeks and there is no active co-leader, the Trainer with the MVP Badge is also given temporary management over the Clan Dragons. The powers of the Clan Dragon can be accessed as mentioned above or from the outside by selecting the Clan Fortress and presing the button.
This button can be selected to view a list of the members of the Trainer's Clan. The first number represents how many members the Clan has, while the second number represents the maximum members the Clan can currently have, based on their level.
Once pulled up, the list will show the image and name of each member, their rank (if they have any) and Trainer level, how many donations they have made during events, the MVP badge , the last time the Trainer logged into the game, whether they are currently online or offline , and the button. Pressing this latter button will bring up the button that can be selected to visit their islands and the button (only if the Trainers are not friends in the game) to ask the friendship of the Trainer. Additionally, if the Trainer has the appropriate permission, they will also be shown the option which is used to remove a Trainer from the Clan, and the option which is used to promote a Trainer to a certain rank.
If the status of the Clan is set to join by request, members with the right to accept or remove Clan members will have a notification displayed onto the button whenever someones asks to join the Clan. The Trainer can then either decline or accept the request, or visit the applicant's islands through the option.
If members leave a Clan to join another or rejoin the very same Clan, they will lose all the donations they have made in Clan events. Clan Coins are not lost when leaving or switching Clans.
Members of a Clan, other than the leader, can have various ranks within their Clan. These ranks are initially assigned by the leader.
Co-Leader - Second-in-command after the leader; can do everything the leader does, except disbanding the Clan. Additionally, a co-leader can not edit the ranks of the leader or other co-leaders nor kick them, but can promote other members to co-leaders.
With the exception of the leader, there is no limit to how many of the other ranks a Clan can have. If the leader leaves their Clan without assigning a replacement, the highest-ranking member of the Clan will automatically inherit their position. If there are two or more people with the highest rank, the one with the most donations in Clan Events receives the leader rank. Additionally, if the leader shows no sign of activity within 2 weeks and there is no active co-leader, the MVP will automatically receive the co-leader rank.
The first tab is for the monthly rankings of the Clans on the same platform and server. Trainers can view the time left before the monthly rankings are reset as well as the rankings of the Top 50 Clans and the Clans that are in the vicinity of the Trainer's Clan in rankings. The ranking scores are made up of the points accumulated by members from cooking recipes and feeding them to Clan Dragons in The Great Dragon Race, from damaging the opposing Towers and Clan Dragon during a Clan Siege and from feeding Shakes to Clan Dragons during a Sugar Rush. For each Clan, the Clan's level, the number of members, their score, their language, and a button for accessing the Clan details are given.
The second tab is for accessing the current Clan League leaderboard.
The last tab is for the Clan Event MVP rankings. Here, the members of a Clan can see their own scores during whichever is the current ongoing event and the time left for the event. Once the event is over, the information will still be visible until the start of the next event.
If a Great Dragon Race event is ongoing, the first column will show the total score score each individual Trainer amassed from feeding recipes to the Clan Dragon while the second column will show how many recipes each Trainer has cooked so far. If a Clan Siege event is ongoing, the first column will show the total damage each individual Trainer dealt to the opposing Clan's base, namely all the five towers and the Clan Dragon, while the second column will show how many sprites each Trainer have summoned so far. The third and fourth column will show the same information for both types of events. The third column will show the amount of Clan Quests each Trainer completed during the ongoing event while the fourth and last column will show how many times each Trainer donated ingredients.
See Main Shop for more information
In addition to the other benefits of being part of a Clan, members will receive a gift whenever one of their Clan members purchases Gems, directly or indirectly, during a so called Gift Giver Event. There are five different gifts and the gift that is to be awarded depends on the amount of Gems that was purchased. This event is a promotion that is only made available occasionally and for a limited time, usually no longer than 3 days.
|Updates 4.0 - 4.3|
|Updates 3.0 - 3.8|
|Updates 2.7 - 2.9|
The main screen showed fewer details on the Clan to which a member belongs:
Additionally, the buttons for rejecting and accepting new members were placed in the right of the applicant while the button was used to visit the applicant's islands. Starting with this update, the first buttons are in the left of the applicant while the last button was replaced by the button and moved in the right of the applicant.
Before Update 2.6, all Clan Quests could be done collectively, were divided into three tiers of difficulty and there was a limit to how many could be done per day. Once certain levels had been achieved, the limit of quests given per day was increased.
The quest tab showed Clan goals and stats. Ned, Arya and Professor Hogwin could each gave out up to 3 quests per day, with having 9 total being available for Level 11 and above Clans. While each character could give out the same type of quests, the requirements were lowest for quests from Ned and highest for Quests from Professor Hogwin. Each quest is listed separately along with current status and rewards for each.
Each month an MVP was picked based on Loyalty Scores amassed during the previous month. The MVP received 750 Clan Coins as a reward. The Loyalty Score was individual and was raised when an individual helped complete a quest. All Loyalty points were lost when a Trainer leaved a Clan to join another and were not gained back if the Trainer rejoined the same Clan. Clan Coins earned were retained regardless of what Clan was joined. The Loyalty Scores were discontinued with this update.
The Clan Event MVP received points based on each event task completed. As all Clans of the same server and platform competed in the same event, each of the MVP of the top three Clans of the event received the normal event reward for Clan placement as well as a five-card pack.
The monthly Clan score ranking was comprised of the collective amount of Loyalty Scores earned from Clan Quests. Starting with this Update 2.6, the Clan rankings are based on scores earned from completing recipes in The Great Dragon Race, a new type of Clan event.
Before Update 2.6, there were three different types of Clan Events, namely Settle the Score, Feel the Fury, and Winner Takes All. Each ran one after another in different weeks and had different milestones along with rewards for reaching them and a different thematic. The Clan Events tab showed a map of the milestones of the current event. A brief description was given above the map on what the task was for the current event along with a countdown clock for the time remaining. The score for the event along with rankings were shown at the top. Rewards included Clan Coins, Food and Gold. Starting with Update 2.6, these events have been replaced with The Great Dragon Race event.
