We are making some changes to the way the Dungeon Finder tool works, to help reduce some of the less desirable behaviour that we've seen and to encourage deeper tolerance for others while playing. These hotfixes will require realm restarts, which are likely to take place during next Wednesday’s maintenance.

  • Players who are outside a dungeon for more than a few minutes are now immediately able to be kicked.
  • If queuing as a group with a tank or healer, and the tank or healer drops group (or is kicked) soon after joining, those that queued with them will also be removed from the dungeon.
  • If three or more players group queue with each other, it will require an additional vote for them to kick anyone they did not group queue with.
  • If a group queue of 4 kicks the one person that they did not group queue with, they will each receive a more severe penalty to their ability to initiate future kicks.
  • If someone initiates a vote kick for someone they group queued with, they will not incur a penalty to their ability to initiate future kicks.


We’ll be closely monitoring these changes, and look forward to your feedback.
