In the last two weeks we've discussed where to go for an instance and what to do once you get there. Since dungeon runs usually require five members, this week we'll talk about how to find people to go with you.

It's amazing to me exactly how hard instances can be. Not the mobs, but the group. We've all been in ugh-PUGs before.
