Adventurer's Guide


Last Edited on : Oct 13, 2023, 15:47 (UTC)

There are two options for binding larger groups together in the world of Black Desert. The first of these is called a clan, while the second is a guild. This page will focus on the former.


➤ You can read more about guilds in the [Guild] page.

Clans can be created by Adventurers who wish to keep connected with one another, exchange information and socialize. It supports up to 15 members, but they have some restrictions. Below you can compare a clan’s functions with those of a guild.






Maximum of 15 Adventurers

Maximum of 100 Adventurers

Use of guild chat



Guild war

Can’t declare or accept war


Guild mission

Can’t obtain mission


Guild skill

Can’t use skill


Use of guild stable/guild wharf



Execute a Node/conquest war




As one can see, the functionalities of a clan are severely limited. They cannot participate in Node & Conquest War, cannot register or use guild mounts, cannot do guild missions, use guild skills, nor take part in guild wars. They are more like a social hub for small groups of Adventurers.



◈ How to Create & Disband

Anyone can create a clan by talking to a Guild Manager NPC.




Once a clan has been created, you can pull up the Clan window by pressing the G key. This will show you all of the clan members, their family and character names, classes, levels, positions, and whether or not they are online. To invite a new Adventurer to join your clan, you must be in the same server channel, and standing near one another. Then you can use the interaction menu to send the invitation.


Disbanding a clan is also easy. You just need to press the Disband Clan button while there is no one in the clan.



◈ Promotion to Guild

If you find your circle of companions growing, or want to participate in more group-oriented activities, you can spend 100,000 silver to convert your clan into a guild by talking with a Guild Manager NPC, such as Luciano Pietro in Heidel.


If promoted to a guild, the original clan name is kept.
