Mantle Assasins is a small European international Guild Wars 2 Community. We consist of a mature & level headed player-base who have similar goals within the Guild Wars 2 Universe. We originally formed in Guild Wars 1 in 2005 & have been playing underneath our MA tag ever since, the majority of our current members joined us in 2006, & we have remained a solid community since. The misspelling is done purposefully with Assasins (Should be Assassins), this came down to a typo when we originally formed. We set up a community poll prior to the release of GW2 to see if the Guild wanted to mend the typo. The end result was the majority being in favour of us keeping the typo, as they classed it as part of our heritage, & people felt it played a big part towards the many great experiences we had created for each other over the years. We dabble in all things PvX, varying from PvE, PvP, WvW & self-made Guild Events. We also offer our own Website, Forums, TeamSpeak3 Server & a Minecraft Server (for the Creative among us!).
Something that we started back in the early days of Guild Wars 1, was what we dubbed "The [MA] Way". To sum this up in a meaning, within MA we do not aim to be #1 in PvP, WvW or Dungeons, we aim to create the best experience we can in a laid-back atmosphere & have a laugh while we're at it. The team gets wiped? We just laugh in the face of team wipes, get back up & jump right back in without all the aggro & rage you get from a lot of other guilds out there! Although don't get the wrong idea, we're very good working together as a community, but without the tension of being criticized if you or we muck up :)
We do not recruit heavily, allowing time for new members to settle in & get to know the members before we recruit more. This also benefits those who are already in the guild as it gives us the time we need to get to know our new members well before bringing in any new faces & getting to know them. This system has served us well, giving everyone a chance to know everyone.

Introducing (left to right) James, Lexi & Dennis, we are the team behind Mantle Assasins to ensure the guild runs smoothly. Over the years we have worked together to provide an unwavering level of continuity. The end result is long standing community of friendly and approachable players.
James is the only remaining founder of the MA community, from way back in November 2005! Over the years, he has dedicated countless hours working with the community to bring it to where it is today. Nowadays, he can’t play video games nearly as much as he’d like, but always finds time to spend with the community and ensure that the community continues to grow and develop for the foreseeable future.
Dennis is one of the longest running Officer’s of the MA community, joining us in April 2006 and being promoted not long after with his infamous “eat your veggies!” slogan. He is easily the most organised and logical thinker among any of us. He has always shown a great dedication and passion toward the community, and as a result has been a key contributor to MA’s overall success.
Lexi is our most recent addition to the team, joining the guild in July 2013, and being promoted to Officer in April 2014. In her comparatively short time as an Officer, she has made great progress in contributing toward her role and the greater benefit of our guild. She is particularly fond of taking charge of our custom events, such as ‘The MA Pub Quiz’ which includes a few rounds of GW2 trivia, and Moa Hockey which involves players with sticks and unfortunate moa birds! She also has a knack for brainstorming design idea’s for the website.
