New WvW update is out .... and damn, is it ever geared for people that spend 16 hours a day in WvW :/
If you reach Tier 6 max participation, you should idle for 15 minutes before logging out to get 3x extra pips.
Being in a squad only benifit that squad leader. For one up for an extra pip, or don't worry about joining one.
The Skirmish chests are a joke. Nothing in them worth even 1g.
If you are WvW Rank 10,000 you can probbaly get claim tickets every hour.
If you have a life outside WvW, you'll be able to get claim tickets after 4 hours of playing.
The Legendary weapon and armor skins require completing the Hero's Weapon or Armor reward track for each piece you want.
It also requires 250 memories of battlke, 5g, and a lot of claim tickets. Good luck!
For max lazy pips, join an out numbered map, and do whatever it takes to get to Tier 3 participation and hold at all costs. You'll get no less than 6 pips for every 5 minutes, which is likely double what you'd earn playing on a full map.
