Dungeon Finder is a tool for finding groups for 5-player dungeons, as well as a means of directly entering those instances. Dungeon Finder can be accessed through the Group Finder, found via a button on the micro menu at the bottom of the user interface. Dungeon Finder is unlocked at level 15.

Dungeon Finder selects players to form a party from all servers in the battlegroup, so there need not be a full group of players on one specific realm. Note that it is not possible to queue for dungeons outside of the player’s level bracket or expansion level; e.g. level 80 players cannot queue for classic or Burning Crusade dungeons.

The first screen players see shows the role selection toggles and the type of dungeon desired. By default, the selection is for a random dungeon. This can be changed via the Type dropdown to such options as Random Lich King Heroic, Random Burning Crusade Dungeon, or Random Classic Dungeon. Running a random dungeon confers additional rewards in the form of emblems and gold.

Selecting a specific dungeon or dungeons can be accomplished by choosing the very first option in the Type dropdown. The UI changes to show a list of dungeons, all of which are selected. To narrow the list, click the checkbox next to the category line to select/deselect all dungeons in that category. Players can also collapse categories of dungeons by clicking the +/- box just to the left of the category checkbox.

• Players may teleport in and out of the dungeon at any time if they are not in combat. They will always appear at the beginning of the dungeon upon returning. However, players who join as replacements for a dungeon in progress will appear at the location of the players already inside.

• In Uldaman, the [Gni’kiv Medallion ] could not be traded. In order to form the [Staff of Prehistoria ], the [The Shaft of Tsol ] must either have been looted by the same player who took the medallion, or it must be given to that player. This was fixed in a subsequent patch.

• The Mechanar also has optional content obtained by combining particular drops. If everyone loots blindly, it is likely that each part will go to a different player, preventing them from being combined. The only workaround is to have everyone except a designated person avoid looting these items.

• If Ley-Guardian Eregos is defeated when The Oculus (heroic) was chosen randomly, the player will be be given a [Cache of the Ley-Guardian ] from the Cache of Eregos. If the Oculus was chosen specifically (presumably by that player), this extra reward is not given.

At the launch of the game, there was only the LookingForGroup chat channel. This channel was available in all zones, but it was not a linked global channel. This was problematic since zones of the same level range are spread out throughout the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor. At this time, many players relied on their guild, friends list, or even whisper to find groups. Otherwise, they would travel to Orgrimmar or Ironforge respectively, find a group, then travel back out to the site of the dungeon, making dungeons far away from these cities very unpopular. As a result, warlocks were also very popular at this time, as they played an important role in forming groups. Blizzard eventually added a queuing system related to the Meeting Stones in front of the instances, but it was rarely used, and was generally a failed feature. In Patch 1.9, the LookingForGroup channel became global, although it was restricted to the major cities. In Patch 1.11, the LookingForGroup channel became truly global, no longer restricted to chat in cities only.

With the release of the Burning Crusade expansion and Patch 2.0.1 came the release of the new Looking For Group interface pane as well as the conversion of Meeting Stones from a queuing system to a summoning mechanism. At this time, the LookingForGroup channel was completely removed, since the interface was intended to replace it. Instead, players began to use the Trade channel for LFG, guild recruitment, and general global chat. Blizzard responded by hotfixing a rate limit of so many messages per minute. However, this was eventually lifted, and Trade channel continues to be a mixture of trade and other uses even today. After much community feedback, in Patch 2.1.0, the LookingForGroup channel was restored, although it was only available while actively using the Interface Tool.

In Patch 3.1.0, after the release of Wrath of the Lich King, the Looking For Group panel was improved to include the role which your currently logged character is able to fulfill ( tank, damage, or healer), specify leadership, and identifying groups or individuals via the Looking for More pane.

First announced at BlizzCon 2009, Patch 3.3.0 saw a new cross- server Looking For Group (and Looking For Raid) system. This is the second cross-server feature Blizzard has added to the game, after Battlegrounds. Cross-server features are generally used to help users on low-population realms find groups, which was previously nearly impossible any time other than peak hours.

In Patch 6.0.2, the Dungeon Finder was merged into the new Group Finder interface. The distinction between the Dungeon Finder and other associated utilities was clarified; the Dungeon Finder now found groups only for dungeons, while scenarios and raids were found through the wider (if not perfectly named) Dungeons & Raids interface.

• Patch 5.1.0 (2012-11-27): Dungeon Finder, Raid Finder and Battleground groups now feature a new "Instance" chat channel (/i) separate from the Party chat. Using /p or /raid to switch channel will be redirected to the Instance channel, unless you were already in a pre-formed party or raid group when you queued. Using /bg will likewise be redirected to the Instance channel.

• Instead of getting 70 VP for the first Cataclysm Heroic in a day, you will get 70 VP for the first seven tier 1 (4.0) Cataclysm Heroics in a week. You will get 140 VP for the first seven tier 2 (4.1) Cataclysm Heroics, which are Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman.

• When in a Looking For Dungeon group, using an instance portal to that instance will now take players to the Looking For Dungeon entrance point instead of the normal destination of that portal. This will make it easier to return to the instance after dying in an LFD group.

• Killing High Interrogator Gerstahn before killing Emperor Dagran Thaurissan in a Blackrock Depths – Upper City random Looking For Dungeon run will now provide the proper reward. This also applies to Archmage Arugal and the Crown Chemical Company bosses in Shadowfang Keep during the Love is in the Air holiday event.

• Patch 2.0.1 (2006-12-05): A new Looking For Group tool designed to assist players in finding groups for instanced dungeons and quests will now be available. This interface gives players the option to be added to a pool of other players also looking for a group, as a means to expedite the process. In addition, players will also be able to search for additional members in situations where they have a group and are simply looking to find more players.
