I first played when BC first came out. Groups for five mans were easy.I have now returned (with a new account and character) and on Dalaran it is damn near impossible to get a group together for any five man. Thank God for Recruit-a-Friend bonus XP (five quests netted me 19950xp EACH!) and knowing a few 80's willing to run instances with me. Takes a bit of the fun out of it, but I figure the faster I get to 80 the faster I'll be having fun getting groups together for "when the game really starts."

I think it to be rather disappointing how non-80s don't really run instances with each other.. just buy runs from somebody with extra time. Back when I leveled, there was no trouble finding groups for 5mans. And guess what? I had a good time running those 5mans. They weren't tedious or anything, they were fun. I met some new people, some of them I still play with years later! Now I"m leveling a palidan, and even though I offer to tank or heal, NOBODY wants to run 5mans. It's just stupid. Great content is there, you can have fun pre80. Just because you aren't max level doesn't necessarily make the point of the game to race to it.

Jur,This isn't true. I assume it takes more time to get a group then in the past, but I can proudly say that with my level 52 main, I've done every single instance in the game so far with a level appropriate group, even Maraudon (or at least appropriate enough...let's just say I haven't been "run" through any of them). Next up, Sunken Temple!It can be done...it just requires a bit more planning ahead.Pre-emptive edit: Ok...I lied slightly...I didn't do Ragefire Chasm until recently. ;)

I hate that too. Instance attrition killed me in BC and vanilla as well.
