Always. At 9 pm it takes no more than 20min for a hm, 30min for a op or lost island. I'm a dps at po5. ,

GF works great for the most part (they need to add gear check). There's no reason to not use it if you're looking for a group. You can spam chat at the same time while being in the GF. If you're actually looking to do FPs, then GF is awesome. It also sends you back to where you were so that is really awesome as well.

Then what the hell are you doing here? I will never understand people like you.

Population = 70% dps, 20% heals, 10% tanks. You do the math on who gets in quicker with lfg. Make friends with a healer or tank, or pull /1 shenanigans. Things would be insanely easier with dual spec. No fussing about with reassigning points nor quickbars.

Ive used it a couple of times and its not too bad. My only complaint of it though is that it doesn't allow you to group as well as use it. I imagine as DPS that if I found a tank through general to tick him in, we'd find a group easily. However, I have to either group manually or through the lfg.

Mind you, it's early stages yet, maybe they will make a few changes here and there to allow pairs of people to use it together.

For all intents and purposes, dual spec already exists if you're a sub.

Buy the field respec perk.
Respec for free in the field.
Win.
Win again when you switch back for free after you're done.

The only thing I would suggest to improve on this is to have a save spec option so you don't have to keep manually confirming each respec. Not that you don't get pretty fast at it after a couple times, but it's a matter of convenience.

I use it every day on Jedi's Covenant server. Works great! I play mDPS and my wait times are typically less than 10 minutes. Those saying it is broke or whatever, obviously have never used the tool. I love it, as I can hop on and get my FP and OP dailys/weeklys completed quickly.

I also use it when playing my level 26 Healer. Queue times are almost zero as a healer.

The wait time for being in group finder is rather dependent on what role you charecter is qued as, if you're a tank, chances are you will have a fairly short wait time.

Currently there is an ingame shortage of tanks, before that it was healers.

As I understand it, the Group Finder doesn't work for things like Heroics. Thus, there is still a significant LFG for <insert Heroic> in chat for given planets and Group Finder doesn't appear to help with that.
