Skirmish reward track

Match Overview interface.

The Skirmish reward track is an account-wide World versus World (WvW) rewards system based on earning points in 5 minutes intervals ("ticks") while participating in WvW activities. It is always enabled and can be monitored in the Match Overview tab of the World vs. World panel. It provides rewards independently of the WvW Reward Tracks, which are selected manually in their respective tab.

This reward track serves as the primary source of WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket WvW Skirmish Claim Ticket currency, used for purchasing various rewards from the vendors, including WvW-exclusive legendary equipment.

The Skirmish reward track is only active in the main WvW zones, Eternal Battlegrounds and the three Borderlands. Playing in the Edge of the Mists map will not reward progress.

Earning pips[edit]

  • Skirmish reward track provides rewards in tiers when sufficient number of points ("pips") is accumulated for each tier.
  • Pips are earned with each tick while having at least Tier 3 participation. Although the interface states as long as you have Tier 3 participation any participation Tier greater than or equal to 3 will count for earning pips.
  • Since each two-hour-long skirmish ends with a tick (24th tick of the skirmish, one tick every 5 minutes) and an overview of the current finished skirmish shows the achieved pips, it might appear that winning a skirmish awards pips. This is not the case.
  • The earned pips are based on the following criteria:

Pips earned vs Tickets
Tickets and memories of Battle earned per Pip
  • Every week a maximum of 365 WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets can be obtained, through Skirmish Reward track, requiring 1450 pips in total. The Skirmish Reward Track resets on the weekly WvW reset.
  • After transferring to a different world, you will be unable to earn any pips until WvW has reset twice. This means a maximum wait of 14 days and a minimum wait of 8 days until you are able to earn pips again.
  • Ticket gain per pip earned is very similar between ranks but slightly improves at higher tiers.
