Norrathians, welcome to the Convenience Age!
The long-overdue EverQuest II Dungeon Finder – a matchmaking system that creates automatic dungeon teams for level 20 players and up – goes live today.
The Dungeon Finder feature is becoming an MMO fixture, and Sony Online Entertainment pretty much had no choice but to implement this insta-group crutch or risk losing subscribers to World of Warcraft and RIFT that have similarly expedient systems in place.
The Dungeon Finder can be accessed via these keyboard commands:
- - /dungeonfinder
- - /dungeon
- - /df
Dungeon Finder users can choose to sign up for a random dungeon or a specific one. Gear collectors will surely zone in on the instances that promise upgrade drops, while power levelers will be more predisposed to roll a random dungeon due to the hulking 25% XP bonus.
Other notable specifications for the Dungeon Finder you may want to keep in mind are:
- PUG server-wide only, so no Antonia Bayle-Crushbone mash-ups
- Only Need Before Greed as the loot option to thwart EQII plat ninjas
- Lockouts only apply to current expansion dungeons
The official Dungeon Finder primer has all the nitty gritty, so read ‘em and start queueing!
