Today I’d like to talk about runescape clans. So what are clans in runescape ?
Clans in runescape are basically organisations made up of players. To start a clan you need atleast 5 players.
What are clans used for ?
There are basically 3 types of clans. Clans that focus on clan wars, which are basically battles between clan members. These are usually recruiting the most geared players and catering mostly towards pvp.
PvE clans, which focuses mostly on clearing the game content. So raids and different bosses, these are the most popular clans since they give you a group of players that are hopefully about the same level as you and let you get a group together faster when you need one. Sometimes these have mandatory participation per week however, most of them are free-for-all.
Lastly we have the skilling clans. These mostly cater to free to play players and focus on helping their participants level up a particular or a broader selection of skills. There are also usually maintained by senior more experienced players and joined by newer players, so theyre a good place to start.
The benefits of joining a clan should be obvious but beyond having simply a group to play at your call, theyre also a good way to talk and socialize, as runesacpe is primarily a MMORPG, the emphasis here being on multiplayer. They are a great way to make friends even outside of the game and i know i still talk to some clanmates from my previous clans.
