    I was told I have to become merc'd and then dance to get the halloween avchievement. How do I do that. I am level 40 btw. I played a couple WZ but nothing.

    Happen to be playing when there's a queue imbalance.

    Also, it seems that if you let the invite linger and join when there is say 10 seconds left, it seems to stick me on merc more.

    Get a defiant to queue you up (should increase chances I think?)

    This. Group up with a defiant (make sure the defiant is lead). Then have the defiant group queue.

    Should put you on defiant side, unless it's a situation that would normally merc you.

    Nope, it's just the above method or luck.

    Just keep joining, it'll happen eventually. You get mercd when there isnt enough players on the other side to make the match, so you get put on it to even it out.

    No worries. Basically they changed it so that defiants can group up with guardians (I think the caveat is that you still can't do it on PvP servers). The full cross-faction changes can be found here:

    Your best bet for grouping up with one if you don't already know someone who has a defiant character at your level would probably be to ask in general/level chat. (Defiant and Guardians share chat now.)

    I thought all you had to do is dance at the starting area to get the achieve? That's how I got mine.
