The Double Glory (or 2x Glory) is part of the weekend schedule that usually sees a rotating casts of different Double Events from Thursdays to Mondays. In this guide we’ll go over the areas and activities that are affected by the boost, and how you can profit from it the most.
Fancy a PVP Game?
With the Double Glory event it’s fairly easy. Glory is your PVP currency, so queuing up for a PVP match generally is a good idea. All Glory you’ll earn after a Domination, Gauntlgrym, or Stronghold PVP match will get doubled. Caches like the Badge of Glory will also hand out twice the rewards. But that’s basically where the good news end. Currently I can’t really recommend “farming” PVP because you’ll most likely have a miserable time.
First of all the queue can take a while, because the game mode lacks players. Currently it seems to be only filled with either overpowered veterans or clueless pugs (possibly farming Double Glory?). Most matches end prematurely because of lopsided teams. Players start camping, or even just quit. Since you need to win to get decent Glory rewards, it can get frustrating rather fast.
Even if you get a couple decent (or at least quick) matches in, there’s not a lot of good items you can buy for Glory right now. In case you’re actually into PVP, there’s the “Strategist” set that scales to item level 510 in PVP content. Ravenloft however made these item levels available in PVE content as well so you no longer absolutely need Strategist to build your PVP toon. Speaking of PVE, there’s pretty much only one item worth buying for Glory: The Bloodcrystal Raven Skull. It’s part of a Ravenloft Artifact set and can only be obtained through the Trade of Blades vendors. After that, doing PVP is just a very inefficient way to spend your time based on the rewards you can grab.
The Double Glory event is easily the worst one of the Double Weekends. PVP is a mess right now and even if you’re able to get into a couple matches, there’s really not a lot of stuff you can even buy for Glory. So the current advise is to stay away unless you really want something from the Trade of Blades vendors.
