Mentoring Badge

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The Mentoring Badge (frequently called the "Mentor Tag" or "Apple") is an icon that a player can use to mark their current position on the world map. It also adds the word "Mentor" before the player's name in chat while active. The intended sole purpose was for veterans to indicate to new players their willingness to give help and advice, but it has since evolved to also become a substitute for the Commander icon, often used to indicate the locations of events and group activities.

Only players not currently in squads can have an active Mentor tag.


The Mentoring Badge is unlocked by learning Pact Mentor in the Pact Commander mastery track.


There are two ways to toggle the badge:

  • Clicking the "Mentor" button in the party interface.
  • Typing /mentor in the chat window.
