    Easy dungeon resetting without leaving instance

    Not sure if this counts as an exploit but it has made things easier for me while farming the same dungeon over and over.

    The advantage of doing this instead of walking out and resetting is saving the time it takes to walk outside which can be very long for certain dungeons.

    Step 1. Clear everything that you want in the dungeon you're in
    Step 2. Convert your group into a raid group.
    Step 3. Invite a new person into your group and make him group leader
    Step 4. Everyone inside the dungeon logs out.
    Step 5. When everyone in the group is offline, the newly invited person clicks "reset instance".
    Step 6. Every one logs back online

    Now everyone will be ported to the start of the dungeon and everything is reset.

    Step 7. Remove the newly invited 6th person from the group and convert the group back from raid to normal 5man group.


    For dungeons like BRD (or maraudon princess runs) this can save you alot of time.

    These ads disappear when you log in.

    You can skip step 2. It works without raid.

    Wouldn't get banned. Not sure why you say this - this is a tactic as old as time. Not really an exploit. Everyone is considered out of the instance, you reset the instance, everyone logs back in and they are at the start. It is not similar to the dungeon layering exploit that banned people.

    Not Bannable. Everyone does this. People even use 2nd accounts just for this purpose.

    Thanks for sharing OP

    I meant it's not needed to convert to raid, so people don't misunderstand. I was solo AoE Farming Maraudon as Mage, so I don't need a Group of 5, you understand me?

    because its something that was known and used from vanilla. its not a classic only thing.

    the only reason it doesn't get used in retail is because retail has been dumbed down so hard.

    You can reset an instance by your own by inviting an alt to your group and having him offline all the way, once you want to reset, you log out from your main and log in on your alt, reset, and log back.

    You still need another person who can invite your 2 toons to the same group tho.
