Welcome back to The Queue, WoW Insider's daily Q&A column where the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Adam Holisky will be your host today.Good afternoon all. I want to give a shout out to everyone in Fargo, North Dakota who is dealing with the flood that's going on, in particular everyone who is busy sandbagging. It's big, bad, and full of water. But on the plus side there are now ducks outside of my apartment, and I live two and a half miles from the Red River. But ducks are cool. It's made me want to go fire up Duck Hunt. I may be pawning off The Queue this week to Alex, depending on how bad things get in my area. He's anxious to talk about Mountain Dew I hear.
"Any idea on how the leader of a Battleground is determined?"
The first person who joins becomes the leader. However, the Battleground leader will switch to the leader of the largest group who joins after the first person joins. Of course, that's assuming a group joins at all.
"What happens when you queue for a Battleground while in a raid? Can it be used as a free rez?"
"There are a lot of people that I would rather not listen to trolling away in trade chat all the time. My ignore list is full and I can't add any more people to it. Any chance Blizz will ever expand the maximum number of people I can put on my ignore list? Any chance they'll ever turn trade into a global chat and make another trade channel so that people who want to chat still can while people who only want to be in trade don't have to?"
They probably won't expand the ignore list. I don't see it on their list of priorities. However with that said I wouldn't be surprised if they did. Check out the add-on IgnoreMore if you'd like to expand your list now.
As far as a global chat channel, Blizzard has said previously they're against doing that. It kills any RP sense, and people already use and abuse the group chat for that as is.
"Has the requirement to have a key to enter Karazhan been removed?"
No, you still need someone to open the front gate for you. However after that gate is open you're free to go in – attuned or not.
"Will tabards ever give rep during raids?"
Doubtful. People are chain running heroics now, and they're getting a ton of rep that way. There's really no need to give folks another way to earn reputation.
"What is the clam opening/stacking capability of the new sea mounts?"
