Just to clarify: right now the random dungeon mechanic DOES give you a lockout for any dungeon you run. It just ignores lockouts when placing you into a random dungeon. Example1: You run heroic AN with your guild to get a trinket for a tank buddy, which locks you for AN. The random heroic queue will still have a chance to send you to AN the same day.Example2: You queue for a random heroic, and go to ToC with a pug. Later your hunter buddy wants to hit heroic ToC for Marrowstrike, but you are locked out and cannot go unless ToC comes up via the random dungeon finder system.

Just to clarify DOUBLY SO:While the LFG does select HC dungeons that you have already run that day (as well as causing the lockout for that HC outside of random LFG) it will be less likely to be picked from the list of dungeons when choosing random HC.Example:You run Heroic Azjol-Nerub with your guild. You are now locked from Hc AN for the day.You join the random LFG. It selects Hc UK. You run it. You are now locked from Hc AN and UK now.You join LFG for the 2nd time. Hc UK and AN can still pop up, but they're less likely to than instances you are not locked to.

This may have been just a glitch, but last week I was in a guild group that ran the ICC 5-man heroics, whereupon we signed up as a full group for a random heroic as a group, drew HoR, and found the instance empty and had to wait out the 15 minutes to try again. Bad luck to be sure, and not the hugest of setbacks, but reports of running afoul of lockouts in the random dungeon finder are not entirely unfounded.

@KJP Agreed. The system is certainly still pretty buggy.
