PvP rank experience

I'm currently in rank 56 of pvp, and until now I've more-or-less never paid attention to the pvp experience bar because it doesn't matter (I don't like using really flashy finishers). But with the release of the mistforged armor which requires level 100, I've become curious as to approximately how many matches I would have to play until I'm eligible for them. Except that I'm not sure how to estimate this, because I don't know what all my sources of xp are. The Wiki page on "PvP Rank" appears to only list two ways to get pvp rank points: 500 points for a loss, 1500 for a win (so ~1000 points per game on average). But I occasionally see people imply that there are other ways to get rank points as well: clicking the "Ready" icon before a match, for instance, or capping points in farming servers. So I'm a little confused. Just what exactly are all the ways one gains pvp rank experience?

    yes you have little xp bonuses if you have a top stat (5) clic ready (10) and a thing with autobalance in private lobby.
    anyhow you can't really rush ur lvl 100, only way is to play.

    There are plenty of Boosters that increase PvP XP gain, also certain events that automatically give effects such as Call of the Mists also increase it.

    Without boosters it could take you anywhere between 1000 - 1500 Games, depending on the matches Won and Lost + Top Stats, etc. etc.
    I didn't do exact math it's just somewhat guessing.

    Which ones are these? Most of the boosters specify that they increase PvP reward track progress, but that's different from PvP XP. The Experience Booster and Heroic Booster say they boost xp "in All Game Types" but I just ran a pvp match while using the Experience Booster and there was no change: the indicator at the right, at the end of the match, still said 1,500 xp for the win. It seems that either the extra xp is "hidden" with those tonics, or pvp xp is immune?

    Those two should definitely work, take a look at the amount of Rank exp you have before the match and then after the match. When the match ends it will likely still say something like "+1500 victory" but I'm the exp bar you'll get more.
