    Default New player but experienced MMORPGer. No one running dungeons?

    I'm on Defiant - Zaviel says it's high but I'm trying to queue for the 1st dungeon level 15 and not getting anywhere? I moved to another high one and got the same thing. Does no one run low dungeons or what's going on? I'm DPS.

    Cheers

    You need to queue as tank or healer to get fast dungeons. For DPS the wait is around an hour.

    The sub-60 dungeon queues are significantly longer. If you don't queue as heal or tank you might sit there all day without a nibble.

    and I would like to add, level 15 is the perfect time to start learning how to tank or heal, if you want to get faster queue times by the time you hit level cap. it's very low pressure since everyone else is also still learning their skills and the dungeons are easy.

    Would you suggest changing to a 'medium' population server then?

    I believe the suggestion was "queue as tank or heals."

    It's going to be a long queue on any server if your only role is DPS.

    LFG is cross-shard, no point in switching

    It has nothing to do with the population of the server, it has to do with the ratio of DPS to tanks/healers.

    Low level dungeons (<50) aren't that great to head into while leveling anyway, the EXP isn't crash hot and any gear you pick up would most likely be replaced by the rewards of the next few story quests you do in a new zone.

    Another thing to keep in mind is how fast leveling in this game is. The first few dungeons are out leveled very quickly
    Even free cost too much now

    Due to the levelling speed, many players do not actually bother with the dungeons anymore; I would suggest that unless you can group up with guildies or friends in the same levelrange you skip the dungeons if at all possible.

    Queueing will take so much time that you're better off continuing to xp normally. Same thing for crafted armor; unless you have it lying around anyway, don't bother. You'll outlevel it so fast it's a waste of resources. Once you get to your 50+'s you can start tagging along with experts for fast gear. (Ideally if you have a guild that can afford to drag you through them and gear you up.

    Its a casualty of the numerous changes to the game to speed up the leveling from 1-50 when SL hit.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    From my personal experience I would suggest to have a support role as well. A couple of months ago I leveled a mage, and always queued as DD/heal/support. From Level 15 to 49 most of the time I got into the LFG group as support, with a significant number of instant invites. So to me it looks like there is a real lack of people queuing as support for the low level dungeons.

    Maybe the universe is trying to tell you that people should really start to learn how to play tank or healer because there's already a crap ton of DPS in the game.
