Tip: Scenario Queues and LFR

Tip: You can do Scenarios while in queue for Looking For Raid/Dungeon.

It's not well publicized, and the UI doesn't really explain this, but the scenario queue and LFR/LFD queues are concurrent.  If you queue for both as dps, your scenario will pop up almost immediately  When you’re done, you’ll be 15 min further into the LFD/LFR queue. Sometimes that’s enough to put you at the head of the line, putting you in LFD/LFR immediately.

Basically, you can spend the time waiting in queue for LFR/LFD by doing scenarios instead of dailies (or trolling trade chat, etc.) if you prefer.

You can also queue for LFD and LFR and bgs at the same time.

Interesting. I thought they didn't like to let you queue for multiple forms of content at the same time for fear that you'd leave a group high and dry when the thing you really wanted popped. Are they just counting on astronomically high DPS queue times to keep that from happening?

The LFR/LFD queue won't actually pop while you are inside the scenario. It's more like you "re-enter" the LFR queue, but are inserted in the front (or wherever you should be according to time spent) when you exit the scenario.

You can queue for a scenario, and LFD, and LFR, all three at the same time.
