How do you get into a trial?
And why can’t we just que into one via lfg? Would love to run one soon....what kind of gear drops in them and how long are they? How would difficulty compare to say, a heroic dungeon (4-man)
In addition to the good comments above I want to warn you about something. Yes in craglorn you can join any of the constant and popular spammed NORMAL trials and you'll be carried mostly but you will have no clue when or why things go wrong and this doesn't prepare you for ever joining a trial on Veteran where you absolutely need to understand what is going on.
Therefore I cannot stress enough that you first read up on the tactics of all trials on any site such as www.alcasthq.com for instance and join that trial after reading up. Then you will start to notice things you otherwise wouldn't and you will avoid making stupid mistakes that kill everyone.
@heartburnkid I'd highly advise getting into a guild that occasionally runs trials, or answering a LFG call for a NORMAL trial. AA, HRC or CR are the easiest to start with. You can find the mechanics on Alcasthq.com
Reason for saying guild or normal trial is people will be forgiving of lack of experience or needing to be taught mechanics, where as in a vet trial or a harder trial you'll be expected to know mechanics (unless it's a progression group or with a guild).
What platform do you play on? If Xbox EU I can get you into a trial tomorrow afternoon.
Like others said, join a guild or lfg in Craglorn. If you're in Na ps4 and have a guild slot open I can send you an invite. We run normal trials three nights a week and a majority of our members are new to trials so we take it slow and explain mechanics.
