Really? I had never bothered to check as I just assumed it added to my rank as well.

Here are some calculations I did to give you an idea of how long it takes: http://www.guildwars...ssion-too-slow/
If you want to level up quickly, make a thief using one of the gimmick builds. You'll be able to consistently score 200+ points per match. Thieves have the best mobility in the game (meaning you can get to and from points faster than anyone else) as well as the highest burst (meaning you can kill even the toughest of enemies in just a few seconds; it's important to not waste time fighting people when glory farming).
Somebody else in that thread also suggested using an AOE necro to tag as many enemies as possible (and then you get credit for each one when they die).
Camping the trebuchet on Khylo is another good way to farm glory.

Aoe all day er day, hit all you can when you can, grab kill points from everyone.
Use movement speed around the map. If its not in your weapons keep the spare in your bags to use out of combat, switch back.
If an enemy is down and you didnt dmg them before so, its not to late. Lay some good hits before theyre stomped and youll get credit.
Watch the flow of teams. If theyre spread out then farm nodes, 20 points for nuetral and capture. Hide, let the enemy take it back if close by, kill them and retake it. Or if its a mosh style, dont go solo, follow them and soak up kill points.
Ress your team, easy 10 points if they just fell.
Dont die! Sling back if youre getting hurt, let the others take the hits until youre safe on health.
Stay IN the point until capped, 2 steps out and you wont get points. Cap a node till its yours then finish off enemys, extra 10.
Always kill champions, lords and trebs, easy and quick.
If a node is being captured hurry up and get in it. Blink, lunge, etc. Step in it even at the last second, 10 points.
I play aoe gs guardian. 300+ point games are normal. Under 250 and something is wrong. I hit 350 cap plenty.

Other posters have mentioned ideas on how to get glory but I'll just throw in a few tips:
Fighting away from nodes earns you the "skirmisher" award which is worth 10 glory. Note, does not work on RotC for some reason.
You can neutralize points much quicker than actually capping.
Tag everything for lots of points.
Kill Svanir/Chietan often.
Man the treb in Khylo.
Play a class with lots of mobility (Thief with shortbow, elementalist, GS warrior)
At least PvP is FUN.

PUGs are meant strictly for glory farming and build testing. The serious PvP is meant to be played in tournaments.
Just to expand on that.
You don't need to down a target to get credit for the kill. Even if it was your teammates that downed the target, you can still attack them (you usually just need to land 3-4 auto-attacks) while they are downed and get credit for the kill.

Tag people to get more glory to rank up faster to get pretty armor faster. It's simple.
Posted 01 October 2012 - 10:02 PM
I know what and why they are doing it, it just makes me want to punch those people in the face, but to each one his own
Posted 01 October 2012 - 11:09 PM
You want to punch people because they want pretty armor earlier rather than later? That's not very nice.

And yes, I like pretty armor.
