With the release of patch 7.1, we added Quick Join for those looking to join their friends in content queues. We’ve also recently turned on “toasts” for when your friends join a queue. These toasts will appear in your chat letting you know when they are taking on content that you are eligible to join them in.
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!
