A question from a nooby PVPer

So I mostly play PVE but I’d love to grind out pvp levels for the achievement furnishings! What is the current best way to farm levels and AP?

    I would say it depends a bit on your situation.
    Do you have many LFG leaders? Then zerg with them. No? Then I would make room for a guild that runs into that campaign.
    Personnaly I play with a guild and make 120k AP / hour. Could be higher I guess but it needs to stay fun for me ;)

    What ShortTripToHell said, either a zerg or a guild will get you there the fastest. I've heard that it can be hard to find random groups these days (though it varies per server/alliance), so a chill PVP guild is your best bet.

    If you're just in it for the rank progression, consider playing during Midyear Mayhem with the Colovian War Torte food active. This'll give you a 300% rank progression boost.

    People will generally form groups, so just write "lfg" in zone chat and hopefully you'll pick one up. Just run around with them for a while. Grab some siege as well; meatbags are useful for the AOE heal debuff, fire ballistas can pack a punch and have a nasty DoT attached to them. You can farm the stonefire ones (most powerful) from Dolmen chests in Cyrodiil if you're bored.
    Siege will allow you to stay out of harms way for the most part while still dealing a lot of aoe damage to accumulate AP.
    Another alternative is to go full healer mode and just run around sprinkling fairy dust on people.

    if you can remember, kill a cyrodiil delve boss for the 20% AP boost...

    Completely forgot about that. It made no sense to me that doing pve gives you an AP boost, but it's definitely a thing.

    what's really awesome is when you combine the delve boss, brindle, d-claw, d-lowe, pelinals scroll and low pop bonus all together :)

    Honestly look for new player friendly PVP guilds. You'll meet some nice folks and learn a lot about the game. On top of getting to PvP

    Because it's not really doing PVE, since PVP can and will happen at any time while you are trying to kill that delve boss.

    as much time as i've spent in cyro - i haven't cleared the zone of skyshards on any of my toons...just started focusing on skyshards recently and began clearing delves again...haven't been in a delve fight since forever though...

    it's funny, most of the ones i remember happened because i startled some player and they instinctively attacked...i remember now that i had started making sure players saw me before waving or whatever...i usually don't go in to a delve to get in to a fight with a player, if it happens it happens though...

    shoot, now pops are so reduced most of the time it's probably pretty unlikely to run in to anyone else...

    I would say just go with any siege group as a healer. There is always someone to heal so Symphony of Blades + Precise Regeneration is already very welcome
