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. The intended purpose was for veterans to be able to indicate to new players their willingness to give help and advice, but it has since evolved into a substitute for the Commander icon, mostly 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.
