Skirmishes are player-vs-environment private instances which are balanced for groups of five characters. They are similar to Dungeons, but usually shorter and often involve staying in a fixed area while defeating multiple waves of foes, and a singular boss.

To enter a Skirmish you must use the Queue System. Skirmishes require 5 players; however, using the Private tab in the queue system, you can queue with 1-5 players. All Skirmishes have an Item Level requirement.
