It was briefly touched on, but I want to reiterate that you really need to be prepared to take an emotional beating. A fresh 80 in the Dungeon Finder isn't fun. At all. After eight 80s it made me question whether or not I wanted to keep playing. The first time I got verbally abused because of my gear, I figured it was a one off thing. Then it happened again. And again. And again. And... well you get the idea. The worst was getting booted from a CoS run becuase 2.3k dps wasn't good enough (btw, this was just a few hours after I hit 80, I think that's good enough, thank you very much). It wasn't until I got over about 3.5k gearscore (ilvl lookup should be restricted from addons in cross realm dungeons) that people stopped griefing me. Its been a completely miserable experience.On the other hand, I level this same toon completely through the dungeon finder starting at 15, all the way to 80. Sure, I had some back groups, but it was still a lot of fun. Never once had someone say something negative about my gear.

Don't forget that you don't *have* to use the Finder. You can LFG the old fashioned way, and let your guildies or others help you the first few times. Don't forget also that you could try a few normals before heroics, to make sure your timing is down for that class and role, etc.
