The Public Grouping system has received an update! The system now automatically sets the level range to correspond with the level of the content you are running:
In Heroic levels, the upper level boundary is now the instance level, and the lower boundary is the instance level minus three. So, a level 6 quest on elite (which is instance level 8) will always be open to levels 5-8, regardless of the level of the players in the group. This has an upper limit of 19.
In Epic levels, the lower level boundary is now 20 regardless of the quest CR. The upper level boundary is the instance level +2, due to Epic levels having an expanded Bravery Bonus range. So, a level 25 quest on Elite will now always be 20-29. This has an upper limit of 30.
