Always run toghter with your team in sPVP

Toghter we're strong

Never run by yourself, there are exceptions but use it as a rule of thumb that you're always stronger together with your team, and you can capture more points, kill more enemies if you work together. If you're new to sPVP and PVP in Guild wars 2 this is extremely important, as a new player you will do no good alone but in a group of people you can be very helpful even thou you don't know what you're doing in sPVP.

But keep in mind it's not a good idea to over do it, if the whole team runs from base to base taking new bases and leave the newly taken bases unprotected, the opposite team easily just retake their base, so remember to defend all the bases you and your team take, that's a important part of PVP that new players often forget, so keep that defense up!

Rebinding the Dodge Key

Dodge as fast as possible

Dodging in Guild Wars 2 PVP can be the difference of life and death, if you tap the key just a few milliseconds to late you may end up getting that sword in your face. That's why it's important to rebind your dodge key from the standard double tap to doge to something that's easier to access. For example a button on the mouse or anything you can press in a instant.

Rebind your keys

6, 7, 8, 9 and 0 is to far away.

Rebinding your keys will improve your speed a lot in pvp. The 6 to 0 keys that some of the skills is on by default is way to far away from the rest of the keys you are using. Rebind these keys so get quicker access to them. It might not seem like you will be much better in PVP if you can use your skills a little bit faster, but it's these kinds of things that determ if you're dead or alive in the end of the battle. So where ells should you place the keys for the 6 to 0 skills? The Q, R, T and F are for example great keys that are free to use. Try and see what works for you, just keep the keys of the left side of the keyboard for easy access.

Guild Wars 2 Gems and Glory Boosts

Gems in Guild wars 2 won't make you any better in PVP what so ever, because PVP in Guild Wars 2 is skill based so you can't just buy-to-win. But keep in mind that there's Glory Booster to be bought in the gem store for a few gems, these Glory Boosters will give you 50% more Glory for one hour, giving you large amounts of Glory (if you know how to pvp that is)

I would only recommend getting the glory boost if you want to level up your PVP level. It's not important to have a high PVP level in Guild Wars 2. You get rewards each time you level up, a chest full of random pvp gear. Just remember that it's all just cosmetic. Getting a higher pvp level will only give you access to gear that looks better, the stats on the gear will still be the same.
