takes some time to provide players with information on the Instance Finder coming with Update 5
. In a nutshell, it works like this: The tool exists in order to allow players to easily find instance parties and to reward them for participating in random content. Joining and completing an instance or skirmish using the Instance Finder, which can be done with or without an existing fellowship, will grant players instance currency, which can then be redeemed for spiffy loot.
For the full details on how the Instance Finder works, head on over to the official dev blog.
