In this example, I chose Zakum.

If the boss cannot be selected there may be level restrictions or uncompleted pre-quests. (example)

Step 3: Selecting the Difficulty

Use the arrow keys to choose which mode boss you want to fight. You can hover over the boss image to see more information. (example)

If the difficulty level appears in grey (example) it means you are not yet eligible for entry. This can be due to uncompleted pre-quests or level restrictions. You can hover over the icon for more information.

Step 4: Time to Wait!

A small window should appear that indicates you are on the waiting list. Leave it to search for a party. You can continue to fight mobs and walk around but refrain from opening the storage or shop windows.
