The Clan system in Destiny 2 allows players to join together to help achieve a common goal. The higher the level of the clan, the more noticeable the advantages.
But how exactly does a clan advance? In this article, we’ll show you how to level up a clan in Destiny 2, and other pertinent info about the clan options.
What Are Clans?
Clans are player groups of up to 100 members that band together under one name. This allows players to have access to others. They can then ask for assistance for more team-oriented portions of the game. The clan also provides perks to its members, depending on the clan’s level, and the current gameplay season.
How Do I Create a Guild?
You can make your own guild by visiting the Bungie Website, clicking on Community on the menu on top, then clicking My Clan. Scroll down and choose create clan on the tabs below. You’ll be given the chance to enter your clan details, and once you’re finished click on Create Clan. Once back in game, you’ll now be able to invite members to join. You must have at least two members in the clan in order for the Clan Profile to be displayed in-game.
You can assign roles other than Founder to the members. These roles are Admin, Member, and Beginner. Different roles are allowed different permissions regarding clan management.
How Do I Level Up the Clan?
Clans level up by earning XP. They start at Level One and have a max level of Six. It takes 100,000 XP to get from Level 1 to Level 2, subsequent level ups need 125,000 XP. Experience gain is capped at 100,000 experience point per week. This means that it will technically take a minimum of six weeks to get a clan to max level. Personal clan member experience gain is limited to 5,000 XP per week, so to hit the clan limit you need to have twenty active members.
Experience points are earned by members by doing Story Missions, going on Raids and Adventures, going on Patrols, Meditations, Strikes, and Public Events. Any clan XP earned will be displayed to all clan members that are online at the time.
