Ok so I've been doing dungeons to get my monthly done. I did a few different dungeons with a few different people and I didn't have any bad squads, but I had one that was just awesome. Three Guardians and two Mesmers (I was on one Mesmer). It was CoE Story Mode and I don't know how difficult that dungeon actually is (it was my first time and everyone elses too ) but we were amazing. No one even went into downed that I remember and we always had a ton of stacked boons on. Not really any point to this thread other than to say it was great.
Also I just for information purposes I finished my monthly on a lvl 80 toon and got the 10 jugs of karma, 20 mystic coins 10 laurels and 50 silver and I don't know how much xp. But in case you were wondering what the reward for monthly was.
