I am looking for good ways to get a full party in public games.

A full party is important because I heard that rare drops drop more often when you have a full 4 player party.

What quests on what difficulties would be a good place to start to get all 3 players needed to get the wanted full party?


Currently there are some load balancing issues on Blizzard's end making it difficult for a full party to form through public games, but your best bet is to hang out at the beginning of a quest for a little while, as that's where the game tries and puts players joining public games, and you will generally(perhaps never) get a public player joining mid-quest line.

Once the issues with Blizzard's servers are resolved, I imagine it will be much easier to form a full party.

Also, the source of the information for the load balancing issue was a forum post by a Blizzard Developer, which I'm having trouble finding.


Aside from the obvious suggestion of playing with your real life friends, I'd be amiss to not suggest playing with your internet friends?

If you can't get a full group of four between your friends, if you can get one or two other friends together, you should have a better chance of finding a fourth in a public lobby.
