Among the plethora of new features and changes Blizzard is implementing in Warlords of Draenor, is a new party finding system to allow players to find others on the same quests and get them done faster.
We’ve all been there, waiting for friends to come online or resorting to asking in a capital cities general or trade chat for folks to help do quests so it’s not so boring to get them done.
The new group finder interface will be designed to assist players in finding parties interested in working on the same content, from pre-made PVP groups, grouping up to kill a world boss or simply just wanting to finish a bunch of kill quests in a zone that much faster. The new interface can be customized so it only looks for PVE groups for completing quests, dungeons or raids and PVP groups for rated battlegrounds, any size arenas, faction leader runs or normal battlegrounds.
Through its interface, you can start your own group or join another, and leaders will get options to set requirements for would-be party members ensuring they get the appropriate tank, dps or healer.
Hopefully this encourages players to actually do the quests that Blizzard spends so much time creating instead of just sitting in their respective capital cities waiting for their dungeon queues to pop.
World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor will launch on November 13th, 2014
