For Dwayna’s sake, join a good guild.
A good guild tells you where the world boss train is and when the zerg is running in WvW. They help you fill out dungeon parties and help you take down a champ. They announce in guild chat where the rich iron veins are and help you level your character. They do the guild challenges which are pretty generous: It’s easy to get ascended accessories and some sweet back pieces by doing guild challenges.
