[PvX] Harlequin - Oceanic Gaming Community
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.
Check out Harlequin's Story.
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.

We have been getting new recruits over the past few days but the door is open for more - Come join us now for the upcoming GW2 BWE!
With the BWE right around the corner, now would be the perfect opportunity to join Harlequin today!
Harlequin will be rolling on Sea of Sorrows for the upcoming beta events!
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!
We hope to see you fill our ranks soon!
A thanks to those who've applied so far, we've had a steady amount of recruits continue to join the guild. For those potential recruits, come join us as you won't be disappointed we have a sound plan heading into GW2 and will make sure our guild won't be a place that you won't be able to progress or be nurtured.
Whether Oceanic or International, we will show the community how dominant we can be especially for WvW, a guild that you can invest your time in, start as a guild member and settle as a family member. Not only are we set for GW2 but a plethora of many other games you can join with us!
With the recent stress test announced (and hopefully another beta weekend shortly after), I'd say it be an appropriate time for me to bump! Harlequin is still recruiting so please come and join, whether you're planning to play casually, hardcore, mainly PvE or PvP etc, it doesn't matter as this is the clan that'll offer you the community, the resources, the teamwork to thrive in.
Join today, you won't be disappointed!
Two new updates that'll serve as the thread's latest bump, first off I'm sure we're all taking in the latest patch notes favorably (PvP/WvW section appealed to me greatly :P) and secondly Harlequin will soon have a guild spotlight posted soon that will allow some further insight towards its humble beginnings + more!
Don't worry, I'll alert you guys with more info about it when the time comes - with that said, Harlequin continues to have a steady amount of recruits join from all walks of life and there's still plenty room for more. Come join us for the next BWE, a few games of LoL or even some ArmA 2 DayZ action, there will be plenty to do once you've joined so go go go!
A perfect opportunity to post has arisen! With the next BWE event announced, now would be an excellent time to come join Harlequin. We plan to spend most of our time in WvW after having gotten to know the PvE counterpart to the game fairly well. You, as a potential recruit would be briefed up to speed with our intentions heading into this game and with also the general guild happenings altogether so you won't be left out.
Come join us today, don't miss out on playing with such a prolific Oceanic guild!
Again the final day rolls in, a shame to see the second BWE go. Harlequin spent it's BWE on the battlefields of WvW within the Divinity Coast server trialing an alliance as well as in sPvP exploring the game's meta - What a weekend it's been, adrenaline fueled and PvP filled.
For those still searching for a clan, there is no doubt Harlequin would be the right one for you. If reading the OP isn't enough, feel free to hop over to our website, contact one of us in-game (Starayo.1723 or Oxea.9506) or even pop down your comments, questions etc here!
