the real problem is,i got 25k in the bank only,i sold everything of value (i double checked it) and i have no idea what can i do to get that last point until the headstart
what i need advice is,what should i try to do that would take the least time?

Imperial Phoenix, Black Widow, and 4 hero armors looks like the fastest route to me. You can easily knock that out in a day or two.

Yeah, hero armors are pretty easy to get if you have a decent hero setup (I know discord is kind of out, but I found all of them easy enough with just discord). Glint's challenge might require a second human team, I haven't done it for a while. Also, most of these armor can be bought for around 7-10k.

Glint's Challenge

Dajkah Inlet
Acolyte Souske

The Shadow Nexus
General Morgahn

There is five of them. The imperial phoenix you just need to beat factions for. You can do the black widow instead of an above hero armor, but I think it's a bit more intimidating if you've never been to the underworld. It doesn't take long though (I would do the quest with all the illusionary weapon mesmers).

I usually go something like...
* bring agony on first guy, unless you are melee then bring splinter weapon
* Signet of Creation on second
* spec for domination
* ineptitude elite

Discord works better if you can supply hexes/conditions as well, and the all caster teams don't work as well if you're melee...

If you don't want to grind (money at least)
You can do the new Wayfarer quests, that is pretty much guaranteed to get you that last point.

Bit of hoofing it around, but not all that bad.

and 30/30,i actually liked the new quests,it's all about exploring and reminding of the quests you did/places you didn't check yet
looking at the young pale tree was pretty awesome too

This is a relevant question: HoM is account wide, right? So I could get one title on one char and another one on a different char and they'd both be counted for the rewards?
