From Dragon Mania Legends (DML) Wiki
Clans are groups of players who join forces to socialize, to obtain clan dragons, to battle other clans, and to earn Clan-Exclusive Dragons and other rewards.
The Clan Fortress (the physical building South-East of the main island) is the base of operations for Clans. The Clan main screen can be accessed by:
- Pressing the button.
- Pressing the Clan Fortress, then the button.
- Pressing the top button in the Social System.
If the Trainer is not in a clan, the Join or Create a Clan option appears, otherwise the main Clan screen appears.

Creating or Joining a Clan
Trainers must be Player Level 25+ to join, or Level 30+ to create a clan; they also can only occupy one Clan at a time. To join or create a Clan, access the clan screen (explained above), then press the button. A list of Clans and a search panel appear, featuring several buttons:
- ᐸ - Go back or cancel.

- - Search through all clans on the same server and platform, by name, language, or both.
- - Create a new Clan.
- - Display the details of a Clan in search results.
- Quick Join - Select a random, open Clan to join (appears above the search bar, if not already in a clan).
Creating a Clan
After pressing the button to create a new clan, the Trainer must enter a Clan name, which is limited to 24 characters and cannot be changed later. An optional Clan description can be entered, limited to 100 characters, which can be changed later. Other options are as follows:
- / - Select a status for accepting members.
- Open - Any person can join without waiting for approval, if there are free spots.
- Join by request - Any person can apply but must be approved to join, if there are free spots.
- Closed - No person can apply or join, and no member, regardless of rank, can send invitations (status must be changed to accept new members).
- / - Select a profanity filter option.
- Edit - Select a Clan Crest and Dragon, used to represent the clan.
- Change - Select a Language to be used in chat, Global (any/all languages) is the default.
- Create 1.5 M - Confirm desired options and create Clan, which costs 1,500,000 Gold.
When selecting the Clan crest, the top row shows only Dragons the Trainer currently has, in the order obtained. The bottom row shows only the shields up to and including the highest Clan Level reached (only Level 1, initially).
- Use — Select a Dragon or Crest.
Membership & Levels
Clans start out with a maximum of 15 members, once certain Clan levels are reached, the limit increases. There are 15 possible Clan Levels, and increases in Clan Level also provide additional Crest choices (both provided in the table below).
|Level||Members||Clan Exp||Additional Shields Available|
Note: More shields are available depending on the league that Clan is currently part of.
Members of a Clan can have various ranks, initially assigned by the leader. Except for the leader, there is no limit to how many other ranks a Clan can have. If the leader leaves without assigning a replacement, the highest-ranking member automatically inherits their position. If the Clan Leader is absent/inactive for a period of 1 month, and there is no active Co-Leader, once a month on a predetermined (unknown) date, the Trainer with the MVP Badge may be promoted one level, until there is an active Clan Leader.
|Leader||Has full authority to accept, remove or edit ranks of members, manage the Clan Dragon, edit Clan settings, opt the Clan in to upcoming Clan Events, accept/deny applications to join (if Join by request is the clan status), and even disband the Clan.|
|Co-Leader||Second-in-command; can do everything the leader does except disband the Clan, edit the ranks of the Leader/Co-Leaders or kick them, but can promote other members to Co-Leaders.|
|Officer||Has the right to remove elders or regular members, can accept/deny new members (if Join by request is the clan status), edit the ranks of elders and regular members, opt the Clan in to upcoming Clan Events, and manage the Clan Dragon.|
|Elder||Symbolic position of respect, having no special access.|
Once in a Clan, the chat panel appears on the left and the Clan details and features appear on the right. Clan level is determined by the amount of Clan Experience, earned by members who complete Clan Quests. The top panel displays clan Details such as current league number, Clan name, Clan message (description), and Clan experience. Above it, the ? button displays general information about clans.
In the Clan details panel, Leaders and Co-Leaders have access to different Clan settings, depending on their rank. This opens the same window used when the Clan was created, with the clan name greyed out. Additional shields for crests may be available, depending upon the current Clan level.
- Edit Clan - Edit initially defined Clan settings or details (Leader, Co-Leaders).
- Leave Clan - Leave the clan (any member except Leader).
- Yes, I want to leave. - Confirm leaving.
- No, I changed my mind! - Cancel leaving.
- Disband Clan - Close/disband the clan (Leader only, and only if they are the only person in the Clan).
Below the Clan details panel are buttons for a variety of other clan-related tasks (each outlined below).
In the Clans interface, the Clan Fortress button houses all functions related to the Clan Fortress Powers and Clan events. This button features an Enigma Egg if the clan is new or has a Clan Dragon needing to be hatched, or it features the current active Dragon if no hatching is needed. Once a Clan dragon is hatched, the Clan is eligible to play in events and the Clan Fortress button may also display one or more countdowns timers, including days until event participation opt-in, the next event, or the current event's end.
Tapping the Clan Fortress option from the Clan interface opens the Clan Fortress courtyard, displaying the current egg or active Dragon and other buttons:
- - Open Clan Fortress power, which reduces the timers on all Hatchery slots depending on Fortress Level.
- - Open the Clan Dragons Collection.
- - Show the next Clan Event type, time until start, and recommended Clan Dragons for the event.
- Hatch - Hatch a Clan Dragon egg (appears only if there are eggs to hatch).
The Members List button has two numbers on it, the first represents the current number of Clan members, the second represents the current maximum members. Pressing it provides a list of all Clan members and their information including avatar, Player Level, rank (if any), name, Dragon Collector Points, donations to other players, MVP score (and badge if present), Clan Power Booster points, the last time the Trainer logged in (depending on their privacy settings), and a more ••• button.
The ••• button on each player's listing provides additional functions:
- Visit - Visit the Trainer's islands.
- Invite - Send a friend invite (appears if not already friends in-game)
- Check Profile - Check the Trainer's profile.
Ranked members see further functions (depending on their rank):
- Remove - Remove player from the Clan.
- Promote - Promote the player to another Rank.
- ✔ - Accept non-member request to join (if Clan status is Join by request).
- Decline - Decline non-member request to join (if Clan status is Join by request).
The Competition Rankings (represented by 1,2,3) button displays rankings as follows:
- Top Clans - List the Top Clans on the same platform and server by monthly ranking.
Leagues - List the Clan Leagues by Leaderboard scores (ongoing events only).
- Clan Event
MVP - List the Clan MVP and scores of all other Clan members (current event if ongoing, or last event if not).
The Collection option provides a list of currently owned Clan Dragons.
Clan Dragons are unique Dragons that can only be obtained in, and belong to, a Clan. Each Clan receives an Enigma Egg when the Clan is created, this egg houses Chip, the first of 10 clan Dragons that can be earned by obtaining Card Packs in Clan Events. Each Clan Dragon requires multiple eggs to be hatched, performed though Community Hatching where members incubate and hatch the required number of eggs, before it can be used.
Clan Dragons cannot be placed, fought with in individual battles, or sold, and they remain available as Clan members join or leave. Clan Dragons have a Rarity but no Dragon Codex entry, no Elements, and they give no experience nor DCP points. Instead, they have Powers that can be activated before a Clan Event starts, making it easier, though it cannot be changed once an Event has started.
See Clan Dragons for a list of Clan Dragon and their Powers
Clan Dragons can be hatched by pressing the Clan Fortress option and then pressing the Hatch button. When all required eggs are hatched, the image of the Enigma Egg is replaced by the Adult Dragon and its Clan Dragon Powers become usable.
Only one Clan Dragon can be active at a time, and only the Clan Leader, Co-leaders, and Officers may set which is available for a Clan Event. On the Clans Collection screen, for an upcoming Clan Event, Trainers can:
- Power Up! - Power up the Clan Dragon (if Clan Quests were completed to earn Power Boosters).
- Change or Activate - Change/Activate the Clan Dragon (Officers, Co-Leaders, and Leaders).
- Once a Clan Dragon is activated, 60 minutes must pass before it can be changed to another Dragon, and active Dragons cannot be changed one a Clan Event starts.

The Clan Quests option provides a list of tasks individual Clan members can complete between or during Clan Events to earn personal rewards and help the clan. Between Clan Events, Clan Quests earn individual players up to 1,000 Clan Coins per day, unlimited Power Boosters, and Clan experience .
During clan events, Trainers are given 5 quest options to earn items needed for Clan Events. Only one quest can be selected at a time, though they can be refreshed, with a wait time, to produce alternate quests. Once the Clan Coins daily limit is reached, quests can be continued for Clan Experience and Power Boosters only.
Clan Experience & Power Boosters
Clan Experience helps the Clan rise in level, it stops accumulating when the maximum Clan level is reached. Clan Power Boosters are used to Power Up the Clan Dragon.

The Clan Chat interface appears on the left of the main Clan screen, and is used to communicate with other Clan members. After joining a Clan or as a member, a limited number of past messages remain in chat (as of Update 6.0 50 were retained, though this is known to change in Game Updates). However, if the screen stays active, the number of retained messages increases until full log-off.
Messages input appear at the top of the interface after pressing either the button or enter on the keyboard. Messages sent display Clan member name, rank, equipped badge, time sent, and the icon if the member is the current MVP.
The color of text is changed by adding a
# symbol immediately followed by any number from 1 to 8, then the desired text to color. Messages are limited to 512 characters, and profanity is censored with asterisks. Profanity filtering is enabled or disabled by members of the appropriate rank who can edit the Clan settings.
Clan Chat sends automated messages when:
- The Clan levels up.
- A Clan event starts or participation period becomes active.
- MVP is rewarded.
- A Legendary recipe is completed.
- A clan member joins, leaves, or is removed.
- Donation are newly requested, or not fully completed.
- The Clan Dragon is changed.
- Clan settings are changed.
During Clan Events clan members may request help from, or help other, clan members. A limited number of event items, earned through the completion of Clan Quests, can be donated to other players.
When a donation request appears in chat, Trainers can donate by pressing the Donate button to the right of the request. The i button on the request displays how many donations the Trainer has made that day, and how many remaining donations can be made.
If members leave a Clan, their donation counter resets, even if they re-join the same clan; however, Clan Coins are not lost when leaving or switching Clans.
Enchantment Material can be requested from Clan members by selecting the button in the Clan Chat. The Trainer can request either 16 fair or 2 average materials 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, Divine, and Ancient materials cannot be requested or donated, except for extremely rare special occasions.
If there are people who asked for donations, but have not received all the materials 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.
When viewing the details of another Clan as a non-member, the following can be seen: Crest, Clan name, Level, current and maximum number of members, language, description, League, status, and a list of current members of the Clan (their name, avatar, level, rank and a ••• button to, depending on their privacy settings, buttons to invite/friend, visit their Islands). Non-member actions buttons appear depending on its membership acceptance status:
- Join - Join the clan (open/without approval), if there are free spots.
- Apply - Apply to join (join by request), if there are free spots.
- The applicant must wait until their request is reviewed by a member with the ability to accept or reject it. Applying to multiple Clans at the same time, is not possible, prior requests must be cancelled first.
- To cancel, return to where the Apply button was pressed, press the Pending button, then press the Cancel Request button.
- No membership button is available if the status of the Clan is set to Closed.
Clan Events are limited-time competitions Clans can participate in only if they have a fully hatched Clan Dragon. Clans work together to reach milestones, compete against each other and other Clans to earn rewards. For the duration of the event, Clan quests, in addition to the regular rewards, give items needed for Clans to progress through the event.
Members who have joined the clan after the event has started, cannot participate in the ongoing event and will have to wait until the next event starts.
Clan events begin on Mondays at 09:00 UTC and end Fridays at the same hour. On very rare occasions, these events can occur during the weekend. There are 4 types of Clan events, The Great Dragon Race, Emerald Wars, Sugar Rush and Clan Siege.
Clans are grouped into 5 different leagues of approximately the same strength. Each league has several leaderboards, each having a maximum of 100 Clans. The league a Clan is currently in affects the prizes and requirements in Clan Events. Each league gives the Clan several other shields in addition to those unlocked through leveling. 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.
|Icon||League||Shields Available||Milestone Card Pack||Grand Prize Card Pack||MVP Reward|
|League 1||None||1 per pack||All Clan Dragons
(except Kutter, Boone and Feather)
|League 2||None||2 per pack||750|
|League 3||3 per pack||1,000|
|League 4||4 per pack||All Clan Dragons (except Boone and Feather)||2,000|
|League 5||5 per pack||All Clan Dragons (except Feather)||3,000|
Note: Feather Dragon Pieces are only awarded weekly to the top 5 clans of League 5.
Promotion and Demotion
Scores are determined in accordance with final leaderboard position at the end. The league leaderboard resets at 23:00 UTC and Clans are promoted and demoted accordingly.
The number of Clans promoted and demoted depends on the league:
|League 5||Top 5 (Feather )||Bottom 40 ▼|
|League 4||Top 20 ▲||Bottom 35 ▼|
|League 3||Top 20 ▲||Bottom 25 ▼|
|League 2||Top 10 ▲||Bottom 25 ▼|
|League 1||Top 5 ▲||n/a|
See Clan Events for information on rewards and Clan event types
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 number of Gems that were 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 - 4.6|
|Updates 3.0 - 3.8|
|Updates 2.7 - 2.9|
There were five tabs available: Main Main , Quests Quests , Clan Event Clan
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 Visit 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 to 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 give 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 left 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 consisted 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.
