    Its bugged, that is the estimate is bugged, I also got the >1 hour on healer selecting multiple dungeons.
    After 2 minutes I was in.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    I tried to queue as a DPS today, waited an hour and a half. I finally got tired of waiting, and left and logged onto my healer. My healer got into a dungeon within two minutes.

    I might have to join a dungeon guild just so I can finish leveling undaunted on my DPS guys, because Dungeon Finder isn't working out so hot for me. :/

    It's like this on almost every MMORPG I've ever played with a dungeon finder. The game has far more dps than other classes so dps can end up waiting a good while.

    I don't know why in most MMO I've played, group finder are bugged.

    Bugs are like :
    • Very unaccurate estimated time
    • Long wait time and instant proc when you restart the queue

    I feel this strange because dungeon finder is not such a complicated algorithm.

    Ye, it did take maybe 4 min, but it was the first time I saw an estimate, it is new for the update? But my hope for finding a dungeon anytime soon became very slim when I saw that estimation XD If I would not have been on a tank I would have skipped it and done something else.

    I like how FFXIV does their roulette system. You see you wait number and time in queue. So you know when it is okay to go afk and grab some food or something, and not accidentally miss a queue.

    well as averages are concerned, ymmv; they aren't absolute truths, If you're the 16th dps in line, just because the six dps queue'd before you waited about 5 minutes each for a tank/healer, doesn't mean thats how long you'll wait. The problem is that they can;'t calculate exactly how long itll take for a person playing a critical role to decide "hey I want to jump in a dungeon right now"

    If you want fast queues play a tank or healer lol

    Its new for the update, in my experience it took 10-15 minutes to get in as DD on random normal.
    DD queues on vet pledge tend to be a bit shorter at least in prime time. has not done random vet.
    Then queuing on specific dungeons its smart to specify multiple

    Yesterday I was trying to do random normal dungeons for the first time for undaunted points, and I've been playing a magicka nightblade recently. My build is definitely not optimized for damage because I am running a destro/resto. I did find that queuing as healer/damage got me in under 2 mins every time. I was grinding lots of gold to buy sets that are for a damage dealer, but it seems like I should just be an all out healer for my random dungeons group. That means I need to spend more time grinding gold, which I did not plan for. I have one heal on my bar currently, so I'm not sure if I should bring more or what. I should have done better planning for PvE content, but I was focused on PvP, and I realized undaunted passives was a thing that I needed to get.

    I'd like to practice running an all out damage magicka nightblade, but the wait time it too ridiculous for that. I did a whole bunch of normal dungeons last night, and I'm fine with being a weird hybrid build if it gets me in faster.

    My preference is to not do a lot of communication with other players (I'm shy), but it seems like I'd have to get together with some people that run the normal dungeons in an organized group, or else I'm going to wait for 45 mins + if I want to switch to destro/destro. If anyone has feedback for the issue I'd be very appreciative. I feel like an ass being a healer/damage char, but I guess it seems to be working good enough, so eh.
