    Its pretty simple, you queue up for warfronts over and over and eventually get a full set gear that is superior to full raid relics. Doesnt matter if you dont win a single one of those games, or spend the entire time emoting at the enemy faction, you will just get there slightly slower.

    You forgot to mention that said gear is still worthless, as new gear is released faster than you can keep up, so the majority of the warfront (and, it seems, the shard) will STILL outgear you no matter how many ranks you achieve.

    Other than that, yeah, good assessment.

    Yep.

    It's a pure mindless grind.
    No skill needed. Winning doesn't even get you all that much of a boost compared to killing as many of the other side as you can.

    I've literally had matches where losing I've earned more prestige and favor then the winners.

    Real pvp does not start until you are Rank 5, maybe rank 4.. Be prepared to eat lots of dirt.

    Go to "create", choose your race, gender, appearance etc. Level up to level 10, queue up for warfronts.

    Learn how your class works and which soul combinations work best for you and your team.

    Level up, gear up, progressing and perfecting your play style, try different soul specs eg. spec 1 - DPS, spec 2 - heals/support. Continue to learn how your class works while enjoying warfronts and PvP until level 49.

    THEN - At level 50 enter a warfront to find out that EVERYTHING you have been doing is pointless because anyone who farmed prestige earlier and is now rank 6+ can kill you in 2 cooldowns and there is nothing at all you can do. At first you will philisophical about it and settle in for a long grind but then you will work out that your future is you running about 1000 warfronts and all you will be doing is spawn, buff, die, spawn, buff, die rinse and repeat.

    Do something much more fulfilling, physically and spiritually, get a hobby, spend some time with those people who matter to you, do some housework, get some exercise, do something nice for your community.

    Ok, well that's what I did...
