Comprehensive guide to nameplate icons?

Hey there all;

I've recently started playing GW2 again after an almost 7 year absence, and I was wondering if there's a page detailing all the different icons I'm seeing against people's names.
I know the Map Completion one ('cos I got it!), but there's a bunch of different ones I don't recognise, and there doesn't seem to be a page for this on the wiki, or my search-fu is lacking!

Thanks in advance!

    I think the Nameplates section of the GUI page on the Wiki covers them all:

    Basically apart from their profession symbol, the gold star for map completion and the mastery icon (if they've trained any masteries) they're all PvP league badges.

    Oh, there's also the Areanet guild tag, which is a little red Anet logo instead of text. But of course you'll rarely see that because it only shows up on devs who choose to represent that guild (basically when they want to be recognised as devs).

    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings"

  • Thanks for that!
    Although I'm sure I've seen more than the ones shown on that page.
