You know what? I have yet to complete the new ZG. It's not for a lack of trying; I've been in several times. It's not for a lack of gear; every time I've been in, it's been with groups that severely outgeared the place.No, it's because everytime I've been there, the some number of the DPS have no idea what to do with the Hakkar fight and end up dying, resulting in a wipe because you can't really finish it with a single DPS + Tank&Healer. I still run the "normal" heroics for my weekly VP. Yes, I could get more doing the troll heroics. But then I'd have to deal with the people who figure that encounter mechanics don't apply to them, and I just don't need that frustration. At least with the launch heroics, those people don't affect any given run to as much of an extent anymore.

I have to disagree with you on a point Hal. While healing a ZG on Jin'Do, it ended up being just me and the tank for the last dire troll right after he jumped and then the chain. Being atonement specced helped me a lot I think. That and the tank doing 10k dps single target and having around 240k health.

I didn't run them for the longest time, but been running the dungeons lately on different alts. The groups are so random it's hilarious.What I find is it's rare for me to actually do a full run. Usually the group I join is already midway or the group I'm in falls apart completely and I leave to go do other stuff in frustration.

Hate to break it to you... but Jindo 2.0 has been soloed. Reports on the MMO-C forums of a tank soloing the entire ZG instance (still trying to figure out Mandokir solo)

Get a guild group? I know for some guilds that getting anyone to group up is a pain (people in mine won't respond while they solo queue. they do this to just about everyone not just me... why be in a guild if you refuse to even attempt to do anything with anyone in the guild?) but if you can manage it then the runs should be much smoother.
