Is WvW decent gold/hour now?

No. If you are looking to make coin, PvE is still a better route. Example this weekend, after 2 hours of WvW on reset had about 60 unidentified green gear. After 1 hour the next day of a PvE meta had 200. Mind you wasn't actually testing this so more of a offhand comment from an observation over the weekend so your mileage will vary. Was out working on the Vision collection to use in WvW and had noted the differences on the side. Again wasn't testing this idea but made me shake my head. Random rolls are still random mind you.

If you dont like it that much but require something from it. Do the dailies and complete your chests, that's it.
If you like wvw and you are playing long term then the different currencies will be worth your effort.

Went ahead tonight and checked  before hand to make sure bags were clear. As I said over the weekend did a one hour meta which lead to 200+ green unidentified. After 3.5 hours and while zerg vs zerg surfing was 129 of the same drop in WvW. So will have to say still no, to being inline. If you are trying to make coin go PvE.

Depends on what you compare it to.

In general, nothing can compare to fractals or big map metas when it comes to gold/hour. If you go full degen mode and farm EBG for hours you may match the raw gold but it would not be in terms of time efficiency.

Zerging WvW is probably comparable to casual open world bosses without sweating a full boss train.

Nothing compares to solo  WvW in terms of negative gold though.

On the other hand, some players (like many thread starters in general discussion) may actually find the minimal rewards from semi-afk participation the most profitable if open world is too hard for them and/or they have no mounts. Though some even find that to be too hard because they don't know how to leave spawn without someone holding their hand. One should aspire to be more than this.
