With this feature joining a tribe and remaining within it's ranks will grant you benefits to help you in the wars ahead. After joining a tribe a player will be rewarded with Prestige every week and can do
Prestige can be used to boost your villages and/or troops, or can be donated to the tribe to unlock even more bonuses and make the current ones more powerful.
You can access the Tribe Skills via the entry "Tribe" in the main menu and then select "Levels".
Prestige is the currency used to activate the skills or can be donated to increase the level of the tribe. Currently you can get Prestige every week. The amount you get depends on the time you have been a member of the tribe. Long time members will have more weekly prestige to spend than newcomers. Prestige can be accumulated and saved for a later date but upon leaving the tribe the saved prestige will be lost. You can also get Prestige by doing the Tribe Quests.
Currently there are seven skills to choose from. Each gives a bonus to a specific aspect of the game and can be activated in return for some prestige points. The skills are unlocked by reaching a specific tribe level and their power increases with the tribe level. The skills are active instantly and shown on the right hand side of the screen.

Each tribe member can freely choose which of the available skills they want to activate for their own villages. A countdown and a progress bar indicate indicate how long the skill will be active.
The tribe level dictates which skills are unlocked for the members as well as the power of the unlocked skills. To increase the level tribe members will need to donate some of their prestige to the tribe to increase the tribe's experience points (XP) or if the tribe is rewarded for fulfilling the Tribe Quests . When reaching the necessary amount of XP the tribe level will increase. While a tribe can never have less than zero XP, tribes can loose some XP when kicking players.
- The amount of XP a tribe looses depends on how long the player has been a member of the tribe and the amount of members the tribe currently has.
- If a tribe looses a level by kicking members the previously unlocked skills will be locked until the requirement is reached again.
- Players leaving a tribe will not deduct any XP from the tribe, but the leaving player will lose his Prestige.
- If a tribe is dissolved all players will lose their Prestige.
- Kicking inactive players will also not deduct any tribe Prestige.
- The amount of XP lost for kicking a player will be shown in a tool-tip.
Required XP to unlock a level depending on the tribe member limit
