wow New 7.1 Feature: Quick Join Your Friends

7 posts in this topic

Ol7DNwY.jpg

See what your friends are up to (and queued for) and join them more easily!

 

It seems we're getting even more tools to connect to each other! After the recent addition of Blizzard Voice now 7.1 brings with it another way to check out what your friends are doing and join them!

Now, while this is a very handy tool and will certainly make life easier (and more social!) for a lot of people, it seems it only emphasizes the need for an "appear offline" or "private" option in the game, as some players don't feel like sharing absolutely everything with their Battle.net friends. The latest status on that was that the feature is on the backburner, and that was two years ago.

We’re making it even easier to find your friends and join them on their adventures through Azeroth with the addition of a Quick Join option in patch 7.1: Return to Karazahn.

You’ll be able to quickly and easily see friends who have queued for select eligible content within your Social tab (o) in the “Quick Join” tab. You’ll also be able to recommend others by using /invite to join the group even if they aren’t already friends with the group leader. Additionally, friends won’t need to leave their queue to add you and will receive a join request that they can accept or deny for each additional member.

What content queues will you be able to join your friends for?

  • Dungeon Finder
  • Raid Finder
  • Premade Group Listings (once the friend has joined the group)
  • Non-rated Battlegrounds
  • Non-rated Arenas
  • World PvP such as Ashran

So whether it’s your guildmate, your Battle.net friend, or your Real ID friend, you’ll be able to find each other and take part in a variety of game aspects without the need to ask the age old questions of– “What are you doing?” “Any room in your group?” “Can my other friend join?”  You’ll just be able to see all of your friends, see what they’re up to, and ask to join with just a couple of clicks. It’s so easy, a drogbar can do it!

I've always been baffled by people who play an MMO but want to "hide" from their "friends ( a lot of quotation marks i know). I don't care if my friends can see that I am online or not, as long as they respect my desire to not be disturbed when I occupied with something else. The idea that people want to hide only perpetuates that culture where people would rather be dishonest than just say, hey yea i'm playing but i would prefer to just get on with my own stuff tonight. 

I can't imagine playing a game where i had to hide from my friends and avoid places where they might be,

I'm really looking forward to this feature. I'd love to be able to get in on things with my friends a lot more easily. That being said we really need the invisible or appear as offline feature added.

That's the issue! Sometimes, people simply don't respect that. I've had to remove people from my friend's list in the past because they, basically, won't take no for an answer. Quick joining in Overwatch, Diablo etc.

It's a fine line between still wanting to be friends with that person, but needing some time off from them!

      Armies of Legionfall is a new faction introduced in Patch 7.2. When you log in once Patch 7.2 goes live, Khadgar will be waiting for you to in Dalaran and he will lead the assault on the Broken Shore. The scenario is an introduction to Armies of Legionfall faction and completing it unlocks new World Quests and other quests that unlock new Artifact traits and more.
      In our earlier preview, we've taken a closer loot at it, but since there were so many screenshots, we've made a video. Keep in mind that reaching Exalted with Armies of Legionfall is required to unlock account-wide Legion flying (Legionfall Commander).
