Harlequin is a large Oceanic multi-game clan spanning many MMOs over its history. We currently officially support SW:TOR, GW2, Archeage, and Tera.
Harlequin was born in September, 2008, primarily as a group of friends looking to play sandbox MMO's with like-minded Australian gamers. The idea was to create a community where good people and good fun was always first above high numbers - within months, Harlequin became the largest MMO guild in Australia, purely because many Australian MMO gamers were looking for the same thing. Through Darkfall, Mortal Online and many other games along the way, our community still keeps the same sensibilities and many of the same members from day 1.
Harlequin isn't just a guild - it's a community. We have an active forum with members from all sorts of backgrounds, playing all sorts of games. We have had several guild meetups in capital cities. Harlequin is a close-knit community of people of many ages and from all walks of life.
We do not have membership restrictions based on class, level, playstyle, etc. Anyone is welcome to join as long as they abide by the rules and want to have fun! And joining us in one game means you can play other games in future with a community you already know.
In addition to our forums and mumble server, Harlequin uses many tools to assist in communication and coordination. Our website features event calendars, a marketplace, a wiki, a signature creator, and Call to Arms (which allows an officer to alert all members signed up via email or text message to an event such as a siege for fast response).
Harlequin is recruiting all hardcore and casual players alike for PvX gameplay. We have traditionally gravitated towards PvP, and as such, we will be doing a lot of WvW, as well as structured PvP, with the aim to dominate and make a name for ourselves as we have in so many other games. Harlequin has always made a name for itself, being known as the "best of the reds" in Mortal Online, and winning the first AvA season on the Tradewind server in Global Agenda.
On the PvE side, we will be taking on world bosses, explorable mode dungeons, and anything else the devs want to throw at us.

If you’re still seeking a guild to join for either BWE/Head Start/Launch etc come and join Harlequin! You’ll find that the OP should be able to fill you in and answer your questions otherwise feel free to post your questions here or on our website – www.theharlequin.com.au
As a majorly Oceanic community, we are looking for like minded individuals to help not only nurture their goals but as a collective, Harlequin’s own though a dominant joint effort. Whether you are from the Oceanic region or not, a casual or hardcore gamer, we don’t discriminate and welcome everyone from all walks of life.
As the passing (unfortunately ) BWE has provided invaluable experience over many avenues, over the time frame of now and till the headstart, Harlequin will be preparing to move into a defined direction in order to be prepared for official launch and the future. So we want you to come get on board with us, not only as a gaming community, a guild but also as a family!
From a Member of Harlequin
Since joining Harlequin in 2010, I've increasingly made new comrades who we all share a common interest it doesn't have to be about games. It could be music, movies etc.
The great thing about Harlequin is the diversity of having a place in a large variety of different games. Sometimes if you get along well with a few mates you even end up playing games together outside of Harlequin (other MMOs, RTS, FPS)
Although we may have a Hiearchy every member is capable of giving their input. The Hiearchy system or ranking system we have is not even due to being with us for long periods of time, but more for being reconised as a respectable member who other members believe he/she is worthy of doing more and has helped the guild.
If your looking for a Guild that has a relaxing and welcoming community, and a fetish for hardcore/casual gaming then give us a go. You never know how good things are until you try it.
