Clan Avatar FAQ
#1
Clan Avatars:

What happens if the person that summoned the avatar logs off? Who will gain control of it?
Mod Maz: This depends exactly how long is left before it expires. If the person logs off and the 6hr expiry happens, the avatar will be back up in the habitat, other than that, it's attached to the person who summoned it.

What skill boost will the avatar give when people are skilling at the citadel? Does the entire area count as the 6% boost?
Mod Maz: 6% is within the range of the effect, 3% on the same world. This is regardless of whether or not you are in the citadel.

Do buffs stack?
Mod Maz: No, only one buff can be active on a player at any one time.

Why is there a cap on the amount of orts you can receive each day?
Mod Maz: Primarily to make sure that each clan member earns their orts over a controlled period of time which was at least spread across two days of normal play. It also means we can give relatively high drop rates without causing things like monster spawns being camped purely to harvest orts, thereby disrupting others gameplay.

Why do the orts not go straight into your inventory instead of that only possible with the avatar's buff? This is pretty annoying.
Mod Maz: Because taking an inventory slot should be your choice, not ours. If you choose to have it in your inventory, simply activate the automatic ort buff on your avatar. You can also choose to opt out of having the orts drop simply by speaking to the Captain of the Guard in the clan camp.

Can you please make a place in the Citadel where every clan member can store their orts?
Mod Maz: No, as citadel data is only available within the citadel, so we would not be able to keep track of your orts in the other worlds.

Why can we not get orts while PvPing?
Mod Maz: Because they are non tradeable.

Can we please have the option to put the clan avatars handbook on our POH bookcases?
Mod Maz: This will be available with the next update.

If you read the avatar handbook, it states that the xp boosts doesn't work with bonus xp weekends. Do this means there will come another form of bonus xp weekends in the future?
Mod Mark: We like to keep our options open. We are definitely not planning any this year.


Some questions answered:
will the clanleader/owner be able to recall the avatar at any moment (f.e. due to abuse )
You can remove the Avatar Warden title from the person who has it out, this will cause it to be dismissed.

What happens when the avatar dies tanking?
It will make its way back to the habitat.

Can the avatar go in dungeons and help with dungeoneering?
No.

What happens if the person that summoned the avatar logs off? Who will gain controle of it at that moment.
This depends exactly how long is left before it expires. If the person logs off and the 24hr expiry happens, the avatar will be back up in the habitat, other than that, it's attached to the person who summoned it.

Will orts also drop when doing cs/ls?
No.

What skill boost will the avatar give when people are skilling on the citadel? does the entire area counts as the 6% one or not.
6% is within the range of the effect, 3% on the same world. This is regardless of whether or not you are in the citadel.


Why only admin+?
Because only admin+ can write to clan data.

How big is the area of effect?
Approximately 20 tiles radius around the avatar.

Do buffs stack?
No, only one buff can be active on a player at any one time.

<name> I'm not sure what your actual question was in amongst that wall of text.
The admin+ restriction for writing to clan data has always been there since clans was released. To keep track of avatars customisations, buffs, world status and other data, it needs to be written to the clan data. Hence, only admin+ can summon it.

<name> for details on each of the buff, please read the books available from the Captain of the guard where they are described in detail.


Can the avatar be taken to solo combat like kiln or Queen Black Dragon to tank?
<name> the avatar can easily be dismissed the same way as followers. If they don't, it expires after 24 hours as a safety measure.

Solo combat?
There may be a few places at the moment, but we're looking to restrict this as it's not in keeping with the purpose of the avatars.

Hey Mod maz if you change the title of an Admin in the clan to "Avatar Warden" and then de-rank them after they've summoned an avatar and left the Citadel, the avatar will disappear completely and you cannot find it in the citadel or anywhere. Could you look into this for us?
<name>, that's because once someone isn't admin they can't write to clan data to say that they've put the avatar back. Therefore it will take 24 hrs from when it was summoned to return. If it hasn't returned after that time, then please submit a bug report.

Will the clan avatar be able use durring mini games such as rcw, sw, fight pits and pc?
Currently no minigames except ClanWars and the Clan Battlefield. In the future, who knows?


You cannot summon the same avatar on multiple worlds.
You cannot summon the same avatar more than once.
You cannot summon more than one avatar in total per server.
But for example, you could have two different avatars on two different servers.


Quote:Only clan members with the title Avatar Warden will be able to interact with and summon a clan avatar. This title can only be applied to ranks of admin or above.
