I've been finding that, as bad as the PuG experience can be at the level cap, finding competent PuGs for instances while levelling has been even worse. I don't know if it's because you're inherently limited to a smaller sub-set of players who are level-appropriate or what, but I can't think of one PuG I've had while levelling my tank alt that didn't have at least one idiot.The armory can be a useful resource, but it's no use while levelling on the grounds that it's not unreasonable for people to be showing up in quest greens, because that's the most obvious source of (non-twink) loot at those levels. Aside from that, dungeon blues are meaningless because of the ease of getting a 70 to boost you through whatever instance a couple of times to get you kitted out.I've had balance druids chain pulling (when everyone else needs a mana break), priests getting bored of healing and busting out the dps at the worst times, a shadow priest who wanted to TANK...and so on. Fingers crossed for the situation improving at 70...

I agree. Pugging Instances while leveling is the worst. You never know when suddenly the mage and shadow priest are suddenly gonna start "yelling" at each other and swearing and the group will suddenly fall apart. Yes, that kinda thing happens all too often. I find it's better to just find four ppl around your level who seem to be leveling at the same speed as you and stick with them... easier said than done, I know, but Pugging is just like that. Good news, it does get a little better at 70, since by then most people have gained some experience with their characters.
