    Default How Long is the average Dungeon Run?

    I got into a Random T1 last week and I noticed that to go through 3 bosses was well over an hour. Probably closer to 1.5. I had no idea the dungeons always took so long. They said we had 3 more bosses to go and I had to back out (which i hated doing) due to family obligations.

    So my question is.. are all dungeons 3 or 4 hours to run? Are their any that are smaller? Yes I know the rifts are about perfect for time (and I do them a lot) but the loot gets old and needs to be refreshed.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,

    StevenX

    An hour +- 20 minutes depending on your group and how many bio breaks there are. If you only have 40 minutes to play, don't queue for dungeons. Very rare to get in to a 3 hour dungeon group these days, but 1:45 happens once in a while.

    Run an expert rift group, and run a chain raid rift group once you have some gear. Lots of great stuff drops from those. Crafting rift groups are fun too, no gear but lots of loot.

    t1s should take 10 minutes per boss (including trash) if your gear is minimum for the content. if you are overgeared can reduce that to 5 mins or less.

    You can do most in under an hour, especially T1s. You guys were either dying a lot, or you had absolutely no good dps builds.

    Ap normal, about 15 minutes

    As for experts, been in a few pugs where peeps have picked up achi for speed runs without having to exploit terrain.

    So average for an expert i would have to say about 50 mins more often than not a bit less.

    Default Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it.

    I appreciate the feedback. An hour or so (10 minutes per boss and trash).

    Best Wishes,

    It truly is variable.

    We've all worked with (or gone to school with) people who can take a half-hour task and stretch it out to last all afternoon. You'll find different types of groups.

    Try to mesh with the rhythm of the other players.

    Anywhere from sub-30 minutes, to 2+ hours. Random groups are random, sometimes you get four other ridiculously overgeared people who could run the place with their eyes closed, sometimes you get a load of freshly-dinged 50s who've never even seen the place before. Unless you queue as a premade group it's completely unpredictable.

    Usually about an hour.

    But the question is irrelevant. It's an MMO. Heavy time investment should be assumed for any activity you sign up for.

    Add about 10 minutes to the rapid assault time and thats what any decent group should do.

    T1s can be really fast (as in groups that want Rapid Assault) I think the last RA group I got in RotF was a couple of minutes off the 35 minute cut off, OR they can be painfully long , as in brand new level 50 tanks/ healers who have never done the dungeon before, even on Normal.
