Clans is a Champions game on Mineplex that was released on November 25th, 2015. It is a faction based game mode in which players can claim land and kill other players. There are two types of servers, Hardcore and Casual. Season 4 is now out!
Clans deviates away from the standard Mineplex formula by being a long-term game. Instead of a mini game that takes at most 20-30 minutes to complete, items can be stored until the map reset (once every 4-5 months). Clans is open to all players, regardless of rank. It's truly a fun game that should be tried out by all.
The Clans Edit
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 awesome 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 to an extent.
Yes, currency does exist in Clans! We call this 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 100 Gems from main Mineplex once a day for 16,000 gold in-game.
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 dependant on how many players are currently on line. Fields at its maximum capacity can hold about;
64 Gold Ingot
64 Iron Ingot
17 Lapis Lazuli
That being said, it's all dependant on how many players are online, the maximum being 80. Ores will automatically be smelted upon mining, but only 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. 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 armour using Enchantment Tables. Sets can both be crafted using ores found in fields and around the map, as well as bought from the Shops!
Legendaries have existed in Clans for quite a long time! Their look has been updated and changed on multiple occasions to give us the current "beauty" we have currently.
Currently, there are a total of seven legendaries.
Meridian Scepter: Shoots projectiles up to 30 blocks away. Damage is dependant on the Class being used.
Hyper Axe: The best melee weapon in Clans. Minimal hit delay (increases each hit), 11 damage a hit, good combos.
Alligators Tooth: This legendary allows quick movement in water. Does 8 damage in water, and 12 damage out of it.
Giant's Broadsword: This legendary allows for quick regeneration. Using it will give you Slowness 3 for 3 seconds.
Windblade: Using this legendary you can travel the skies of Clans speedily off the wind.
Scythe of the Fallen Lord: Used to be a good legendary, not really anymore. Hit people for instant regeneration.
Magnetic Maul: Use the power of magnetism to attract players to you. Great for trapping!
Legendaries can be acquired from events with a very low drop rate of 1%. They're a really great addition to the server that everyone loves. The Runed Pickaxe also exists, which can mine blocks instantly. Is considered a rare.
There are currently three bosses in Clans. The first is the Iron Wizard. 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 two hours.
Next would be the Skeleton King. 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 armour you are wearing. This will drop 1 iron token and a random item drop. The Skeleton King spawns once about every two hours.
Finally we have the 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 3000 health, if you aren't prepared you are dead.
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 dropped Runes, which can be applied to armour, 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.
Previous Versions Edit
Clans was previously playable on BetterMC and NautilusGaming, servers which merged with Mineplex. In these prior versions, the armour 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.
There are also versions to this day of Clans available for you. While I don't recommend them, they do exist.
