Just hit lvl 80, I needed to do 10 Fractals for the Monthly, what do I need to know about Fractals so I'm not a huge drag on the group?

I haven't done any of the dungeons or fractals. Any advice for me if I want to get my 10 factals done this month?

Thanks.

Start at level Fractal level 1 and don't try to jump into higher groups.   People's patience for inexperience declines as you advance, but you will know what to do for the most part by the time you get to that point if you start from the beginning.  Just jump in-immersion works best.

Just advertise it as a lvl 1 monthly marathon lol.

But no, you actually do not need to do any fractal for the monthly.

Much easier to just get the WvW kills instead of doing fractals.

Go join a zerg
???
Profit

this

but if you are dead set on fractals, youtube is your best friend.  learn those fights, fractals are traditional dungeons, no paths, just straight dungeon mechanics

You have specified a guild tag, do you not have a guild? If you want to fractals, just invite some people in the guild for level 1 (preferably one that has done fractals before). If everyone know the fractals and are good geared, you will go through 4 of them in less than an hour (my record is under 30 minutes, heh). 10 really isnt that time consuming, at a slow pace we are talking 3 days to complete it (doing one fractal rank per evening).

Keep in mind you dont have to do all the monthly options, just 4 or 5 of them or whatever it was.

As others have already pointed out, you do not need to do fractals in order to get your monthly reward, you can simply pick any 4 of those achievements.

If you want to do fractals though, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just make sure you join <10 groups and make it known to your group that it's your first encounter with that particular fractal level. Read through this if you want to familiarise yourself a bit more on the tactics for the different locations.

Just put on your LFG that you're new, but eager to learn.

Jumping puzzles, events, veterans, are easier than fractals. The fourth one I completed first was so easy I can't even remember what it was.

What do I need to know about Fractals so I'm not a huge drag on the group?

1. Go to GW2LFG.com
2. Join a Group that is doing any even fractals (2,4,6,8,10) below level 11
3. Don't act like you know-it-all - Don't act like you know-nothing-at-all
4. Just stay with the group. Do what they do and you'll be fine.

Do this 3 times, and you will be done w/ your monthly before you complete your 3rd set of fractals.

This is exactly it. If you don't have a guild to go with, this is the best advice.

Also, when you are at Jade Maw and the thing pops up over your head, pick up that crystal reflector thingy. If you can't - dodge. This will save you some grief.

Most people are really helpful and patient in low level fractals.
