- Initiate -
All new members to the Clan begin their rank as Initiate. An Initiate has sworn to our Code of Honor and vowed to uphold Clan values as they gain membership into the Herd. It is then the Initiates duty to demonstrate their loyalty to the Clan and walk a Path of Honor among us. Over time, an Initiate's honorable deeds will be noticed by our council of Elders and eventually result in their ascension as a true Thunderhoof Clansman.
- Clansmen -
These members represent the fabric of our organization. A Clansman has proven over time that they truly have the spirit of the Clan within them and their title is a life-long symbol of the respect and honor they have earned in Thunderhoof Clan and with all Shu'Halo.
- Champion -
Thunderhoof Clan has seven Champions, one for each path a Tauren may follow, be they Warrior, Druid, Shaman, Hunter, Death Knight, Paladin or Priest. Once per month we open the floor of Thundarena so that Clansmen may lay challenge for this title through honorable combat. Our Clan Champions represent the strongest among our seven classes and it is a great honor to hold this title, though they may be called out to prove themselves worthy time and time again.
- Elder -
This is a special rank identifying founding members of Thunderhoof Clan who not only have been with the Clan for a very long time, but served as Master Crafters under our old system of government and who assist in Clan administration duties. The Elder rank is considered closed and may only be given by the Chieftain under extraordinary circumstances.
An initiate may not have an alt in the Clan until obtaining the rank of Clansman.
(This rule was suspended during the release of Cata, and is now back in place)
Clansmen are entitled to up to six alts (one character per class available to tauren please), but must declare a 'Clan Main'.
