Tribes are a major part of Tribal Wars, allowing players to group up to support each other and eventually win a world.
Finding a tribe
It is strongly recommended that you find a tribe to join as soon as possible if you are a new player. While it is possible to create your own tribe, we would recommend waiting until you have more experience to do so.
In order to join a tribe you will need to receive an invite, it is not possible to apply via the game interface. To view a list of tribes, you can click on Rankings and then Tribes. However, you may prefer to view tribes that have a strong position on your continent, in which case you should go to Rankings and then Continent Tribes.
Most tribes will typically show whether they are recruiting or not on their profile. They will also list the name of the leader or recruitment manager. This is the person you should mail to enquire about an invitation.
Leaving a tribe
If you aren't happy in your tribe, it is always possible to leave. Click "leave tribe" to leave your tribe. You find that button when you click on "tribe", right above the internal announcement.
Note that this is subject to world settings, some worlds do not allow you to leave your tribe.
Positions in the tribe
There are a number of privileges that can be given to each tribe member.
|Duke / Tribe founder|
| Setting someone to duke status makes this player Tribal founder, with all powers and rights in the tribe. They can disband the tribe, change its name and settings and edit other players' rights.
Never give this right to a member unless you really trust them. They can disband your tribe, and once that is done there is no way to get it back. You will need to recreate it from scratch.
|Baron / Tribal aristocracy|
| Barons are able to set privileges and titles of other members and kick members from the tribe.
You should be careful when giving out this right. A malicious baron could kick all the members of the tribe.

|Allows the players to edit the tribe's profile and edit the diplomacy lists. They can set which tribes appear as NAP, Ally or enemy.|
