If you were put off by having to manually locate a band of fellow adventurers in Guild Wars 2 without a third party add-on, it appears as if a late 2013 target has been set for an official "looking for group" tool.
"As we’ve announced previously, we’ve got a team working on an in-game LFG tool to be released later in 2013" said Guild Wars Director Colin Johanson on the official forums.
I remember asking ArenaNet about this helpful add-on close to launch, and I'm glad to see it's finally coming to fruition! This should help some people jump back into the game and get into the action in moments.
