Problem with PUGs is now that BC has been out for so long, most people have already been through the instance a bazillion times, so if you aren't "geared" you aren't accepted because alot of people now are just looking for a fast run and the bonus badges you get from the daily. WoW has turned into and elitest society, which should be reset for a time once WotLK comes out.Advice on getting a good group together? Don't judge players by their gear. When you have good players in your group, add them to your friends list. Eventually you will have a solid number of firends who are good at what they do. (Trust me, when someone whispers you and says: "I grouped with you last week and thought you were an awesome , would you like to group up again for another heroic?", it makes them feel good and all the more likely to join up.) Stick with it, put yourself into the LFG queue and do some dailies, battlegrounds, or other questing, you'll be picked up eventually, (assuming there are even people wanting to run the same instance as you on the given day.)

dpoyesac, thank you for saying what i was about to.i've been playing this game on and off since release, and am only just at 68 with my current main.. it'll be the first i take to 70. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that people appreciate good hunters if only because there are so many bad ones out there that know little more than autoshot. When played well we'll save a wipe many a time... but then, what class can't say that?

Agreed. The other night, during the time that LFG is completely dead, decided to PUG HRamps with a oomkin healer, and prot pally who just dinged 70. We only got about 5 pulls in, but it was still probably more fun that most of the PUGs I've done lately (does anyone still play for mere fun anymore?). Yesterday, on the other hand, I did the PUG from hell with a bunch of uber geared folk (healer in T6, tank in mostly T5, complimented with arena gear), and we wiped on every other pull. We went through 4 people because they didn't realize you had to be keyed, or were saved to it already. Odd, the badly geared PUG was infinitely more fun. But then again, I'm one of those odd people whose looking forward to WoLK mostly to have instances be challenging again (read: wipe over and over).
