First of all, I want to thank the patience of the group that got stuck with me last night. Two people actually came back and tried to show me where to jump.
For those who do not know (I did not) there are a LOT of jumps over lava in this dungeon. If you are not a good jumper, you will get hurt repeatedly and probably die. I used multiple potions, charges on my stone of healing, and, in a final desperate attempt, I waded through the lava and used a scroll of mass resurrection (whatever it is called) because that was all I had. Then I tried a jump and fell into a cavern I think and was instantly killed. Back to square one. I could not bear to hold the group up any longer, so I abandoned the quest.
First, I am an older player (senior is the kind way of putting it), and therefore probably have slower reflexes and not so good of control over the joystick. Second, I have not been playing video games for the majority of my life, so am not as versed as others. However, I feel that this particular dungeon is really flawed. If you choose it and queue up with random individuals, you burden the entire group. I cannot knowingly do this in good conscience. I am fine with these types of obstacles in solo play dungeons where the only person I inconvenience is myself. I am not OK with it in a group situation. Jumping over lava is hard enough without having a sign on your screen saying "Your Group is Waiting for You".
I would suggest, if the devs think this is fun, that they need to reexamine their definition of "fun". I would also suggest that they have a practice course that we could run with those obstacles duplicated. No need for rewards, just give me a place to practice without the pressure of knowing I am holding up the rest of the group. I would love to be a better jumper but I cannot learn under the circumstances in ELoL.
Again, thank you to the people who were grouped with me. My apologies for abandoning you.
