    Default LFD tool expected May 4th

    From an interview with Massively's Justin Olivetti:

    One of the biggest improvements with the update is the addition of a Looking for Group tool. This was something everyone wanted, Hartsman said, but the team refused to rush it out the door in poor shape. It does what you would probably expect: Players can queue up for an instance by role (the system recognizes which builds you have and offers options for tank, healer, support and DPS) and then wait as the tool assembles the group for a cooperative adventure. Once a group is formed, the system thenn throws them into the maelstrom automatically. The LFG tool isn't just for dungeons, either; it's designed to help players get together for world quest content like epic or arena quests.

    The LFG tool will come in handy in conjunction with 1.2's improved daily dungeon system. Trion's tweaking the daily dungeon quests so that you can either do one per day or let them pile up so you can knock out a bunch at once. Hartsman said that this caters to the "weekend warriors" who want all of the special rewards of daily dungeons but can only make time for them once a week. The game will store up to seven daily dungeon quests for you at a time.

    I just hope they give us some flexibility in how the groups are set up. Tank + Healer + 3 dps is a horrible set-up for experts unless you out-gear them.

    Many threads on this already I find it hard to believe you couldn't find one.

    It's the only thread on the announcement (as opposed to the pros and cons of LFD) in the Dungeons forum.
