Who Are We?What Is The Cradle? Who Are We?

Cradle is the strange planet on which Spiral Knights is set according to Spiral Knight's Wiki. In a sense, they are right. But what's missing from the description is that the Cradle is much more. Something bigger. Something more fantastic and something that represents everything as a whole. Much like our beautiful planet Earth. If you have any knowledge on the game you would know that Cradle, our Spiral Planet in a sense, was created and manufactured by Gremlins though the Wiki does not seem to back that up. What the Wiki does cover is that Gremlins like to break what they try to fix which would explain the existance of the Roarmulus Twins and Deconstruction Zone levels.

We are Cradle. A Tier 2 and 3 group of Knights (or soon will be) who work together to achieve what is needed to be achieved. We offer nothing but a home for Knights much like Cradle does for all players. In Cradle, we focus more on the Clockworks side of the game rather than Missions, though Missions is still acceptable. Founded on July the 21st 2012 by Takendown, Cradle hopes to offer the best Spiral Knights experience in and around the Clockworks and in Missions. We hope to form a guild of not only skilled players, but also players who have respect for what Three Rings have created for us. Respect for Cradle in-game as we do here on Earth. Respect for all that exists...

Why Do You Focus More On The Clockworks? Why Do You Focus More On The Clockworks Rather Than Missions?

A great question but not very easy to explain. While Missions may seem the easy and quickfire way to get to any desired Boss level such as the Jelly King or Lord Vanaduke, you are really missing out on things the Clockworks have to offer. The two images below should be able to provide reasons why we prefer the Clockworks.

Rare monsters offering unique items roam the Clockworks. Have you discovered any yet?
The Clockworks below the surface cycle levels in real time. You will never see all...

Of course both of the above do not seem to apply to Missions, not to mention that before the existence of Missions most people were finding rare and unique items such as the Darkfang Shield which currently cannot be found within Missions (or anywhere else within the Clockworks it seems).

That isn't to say that items within Missions cannot be found - That isn't true. There seems to be a decreased chance in picking up a item in Missions. At least, I've only found one item (the Blast Bomb) in the entire Mission series (1-1 - 9-4) while I've found more unique items within the Clockworks.

As well as rare items, rare monsters such as the Toxilargo and the Sloom can also be found within the Clockworks offering rare and unique items you won't find in Missions. While some less rare monsters such as the Toxilargo may appear in Missions, the more rare monsters such as the Mewkat may not.

As the Clockworks' levels shift from time to time, new levels are being created. Rare ones too such as a Raining Wolver Den or something similar to the Starlight Cradle. Of course, as this is rare, chances are you will find rare and unique levels once in a while. In Missions? Never.

A very good questionI Don't Focus On The Clockworks Much And I Play A Lot Of Missions. Can I Still Join?

Welcome aboard! - Of course you can still join! We do Clockwork runs regularly but that does not mean we don't do Missions! We just focus more on the importance of the Clockworks and experience everything that can be experienced within the Clockworks that players were experiencing before the existence of Missions. Whether you don't do the Clockworks and focus on Missions, there's always a place for you here! Don't feel left out! We count everybody as one! We don't exclude!
