I was thinking the "old style of dungeon finder" meant the Burning Crusade style where there was an actual window that you would open up in-game. You'd select your role, put notes for yourself, etc. A little similar to the Dungeon Finder we have today.Here are a couple of photos that I scrounged from the web:http://images.wikia.com/wowwiki/images/9/9d/Patch_3.1.0_LFG.pnghttp://pcmedia.gamespy.com/pc/image/article/740/740486/440LFG_1161298228.jpgI liked this style of Dungeon Finder because it promotes community on the server. You could build a server-wide reputation that way (with your faction at least). The only way to find people on your server to group with now is by spamming Trade Chat (because no one uses LookingForGroup Chat).Also, Blizzard needs to incorporate some kind of temporary guild perks for people who are picked up to fill in for raids and rbgs. For instance, if I were to help a different guild raid Dragon Soul, I should have access to their guild repairs, guild perks (if they're a higher-level guild), etc...if they choose to let me.

Good point although I'll counter with the ability to make groups through realID, I would argue that your reputation and friends you make are really region wide, your specific server really doesn't matter as much.No one has used the LFG chat since blizzard changed how LFG chat works. I can't remember specifically what changed or when, but it was something like it changed so that you had to be in a major city to access LFG? I think that was in the 3.3 patch. It basically made it so that it made it a lot more inconvenient to access the lfg channel, and since everyone was in a major city to begin with, it just went to trade when looking for groups.It's still worth it to put together your own groups from time to time, or at least partial groups. A good example of this is once you hit outland, I would usually get the level 59-61s in Hellfire together to do a Ramps run. A lot of times people are just questing and don't even really think about running Ramps unless they get a quest or two, and people on your server will appreciate someone willing to take the lead to get up a group for it. You just use the /1 local channel.I disagree with the guild perks idea. It would pretty much defeat the purpose of being in a guild for the advantage of getting perks.

I can understand not being able to use another guild's perks, but if I'm helping a different guild raid, I should be able to use their money for my repairs. I have access to their feasts and cauldrons which are from guild rewards. Why not their repairs?

Repairs are stupid and should be removed from the game.
