This is looking pretty good. The patch notes are some of the better ones in a while and I'm excited about their plans to become more "agile" and make patches more frequently. Looking forward to it.

Wish I could get excited about anything this company does now. At least the new improved instance finder doesn't require turbine points to use.

I've really been loving SWTOR, but always am drawn by LotRO.

My problem with this game in the past has been really twofold: it felt really grindy, a bit repetitive (orcs, boars, bears, bandits...) and the quests were done in such a way that I'd go to a quest hub, kill mobs in area A, go to another quest hub, then have to go BACK to area A again, and constantly keep having to come back to the same area over and over.

Have these changed? Loved a lot about LotRO, but the repetition just turned me off.

@(Unverified) Questing has been streamlined a lot more, ever since a few zones were revamped, most notably Bree-land, Lone Lands and Evendim.

Does anyone ever get a group from the instance finder anyway? I wait in the queue all the time and have only gotten one group ever.

Maybe I'm on the wrong sever (Brandywine).

@Quidveritas I've never had any luck, either as a healer or dps.

@(Unverified) i think most people will still use GLFF to form a full group then que up for a random 6 man isengard instance for the currency and morale buff

Brandywine is the autoleveling server. Everyone goes there because it is the most populated and constantly busy in the ettens, players then transfer to the lower population servers and start strutting epeens, happens all the time on windfola, a rather dead server where the mediocre come to be gods. *laugh*

I play on the same server, and I generally have pretty good luck with it. Some days, not so much but I find it's fun to use for the random factor. Sometimes I get a 3 man group for library, other times a 6 man crew running a classic dungeon , other times I get 1 other person running skirmishes. Of course, I usually select everything and go as either a tank or DPS. The main problem I have with it is the 'support' role doesn't mean you are actually getting a healer. I got paired up with 2 hunters running a classic once, one of them qualified as 'support' even though they have no healing abilities. Needless to say, we didn't get very far.

When the IF was first being introduced, I made a post on the Bullroarer forum that it was not going to work as a LFF tool. One of the devs responded to me basically saying - the IF is not supposed to find you a group, but rather choose a random instance for you.

Turbine appears to not be so blunt about the IF anymore, but in the end its purpose is to provide an easier way to recycle old content and finding a group is a secondary function.
