Well, I think that the "in-progress" dungeon problem should be debated.I know it's hard (and sometimes just impossible) to follow an instance when a tank (mostly) falls off the party...Yet it really creeps me when I see that the instance is in progress. When you have been like... 20, 30? minutes waiting, sometimes you want a party that hasn't been failing (I know, people get out of party for more reasons, but right now...)I usually accept the invite, but I think there's some kind of "moral" problem that should be debated.

It kind of screws you if you need a drop from boss 1, but they're on boss 3. If you stay, you get locked out of possibly getting your drop for a day. If you bail, you'r a dick and get dungeon deserter.

"It kind of screws you if you need a drop from boss 1, but they're on boss 3. If you stay, you get locked out of possibly getting your drop for a day. If you bail, you'r a dick and get dungeon deserter."If you choose a random dungeon then there's obviously a chance of getting a dungeon in progress, but if you choose a specific dungeon then I'm 99 percent sure that you are bound to get a fresh, uncleared one, to allow just this kind of thing. If all you need from heroics is one specific drop from a specific boss to complete your pre-raid best in slot set, or just two or three such items, then you can queue up for those specific dungeons. I suppose if you wanted the fun and variety of randomizing dungeons but didn't want to risk getting dungeons in progress for some reason, you could specifically select all dungeons. I think you wouldn't get the Luck of the Draw buff that way, though.

I rejoice when I get an in-progress dungeon. I'm egotistical enough to believe that I'm probably better than the whiny quitter who they're replacing, and my daily valor points are that much closer than usual.Usually I'm right.

@Cyrus I think the luck of the draw buff is given anyway, since it's for use of the Dungeon Finder tool, and not specifically *Random* Dungeon Finder. You will not, however, receive any extra loot upon completion of the dungeon if queued in this way.
