This goes side by side with WvW players ticked about fractals (and WvW players do have to do them because of that 8% increase to overall stats). I get your point though, you don't want to enter into the world at all. Ever. Because you chose to only PvE. I would have enjoyed not having to go in either, I mean come on, those points are hard for keeps and towers you do not own. But I want my legendary, so I WvW (besides I enjoy it). Not everyone does, and I wouldn't expect them too.
Likewise I find it silly that PvP and WvW players have to do hosts of items in the PvE world for a legendary. End result is it's the player choosing what to do. You sound like a completionist at heart. I respect that, and while getting 'ganked' will happen in WvW ... it will happen less if you only do the points as your world owns them. Makes it a easy fast run, and check. Keep locations in EB for example swap every week. Just some thought, but you also sound as if your closing in to the end and patience have worn thin. My suggestion, if you just want it done? ... Be honest in your world's chat, and /map chat for a party and ask for some help. In one 'karma train' (even though its not much karma, there is a cycle that will eliminate all the outer supply camps. Then its just towers and keeps.
Also while you are doing this you can express your dissappointment through to Anet, on their forums. Your not alone in this arguement, but many who are not so one sided (either pvp or pve) would look at the postings as a person whining and contributing very little. I think you are frusterated, and if you were on Darkhaven, I'd help you get most of them in a day.
It will be very hard to power through the WvW PoI's as some of the base keeps in EB may not even flip at all across the week. So I would just do what you can once ... powering through the easy stuff, then just map in and check when you are in LA, and have second.
I was exactly in your shoes when I was doing my 100%, and only after I had got the point's grown hugely interested into WvW. When first stepping in, and getting slaughtered because you really don't get it, it's upsetting. (someone who doesn't go in WvW wouldn't know about the current enemy habits, nor where it would be safe to go. Remember many of us WvW players leverage voice comm, continually and have a good understanding of the full map always).
Best tips, group up... safety in numbers. It's a gang mentality out there. Know your color and the enemy colors (press your b button, its shaded behind it)... start with your borderlands and hitting the towers and keeps you own (these flop all the time), usually you will have the heaviest and free reign here. Do it during your servers prime time. Don't wait till the end of the night, because thats usually another servers morning.
By ALL means when you check the map, AVOID THE ORANGE SWORDS. That is battle territory, and likely zerg territory. If you have the chance to join in a zerg of your world, do it. If you see map chat saying 'Rally on me, we're going to take garrison, (or stone mist in EB)' ... join them. Stay in the back, away from the front, and just get your points and get the heck out.
