I usually do my dailies and farm. Or I'll look things up on the web and check back a lot to make sure I didn't miss the queue.

Same, except the things I look up on the web are NSFW.

Same. Dailies. Farming or Fishing. Reading wow.com.Occasionally I will use the bathroom...but somehow I usually miss the queue in that 30-45 seconds lol
This is infact - an issue of huge frustration for me.On my DPS - I have tailoring and enchanting, so when I'm in queue I largely have nothing to do. I'm not really into daily's and I don't bother questing so I tend to just hang around the 10 or so minutes it takes.On my tank however I have two gathering professions, so time in Q would be time spent out gathering only I never have to Queue because it's instant for Tanks.There I did it... I QQ'd about no Q.World First?

Arg and I just noticed that Matt Low stole my answer :S

Dailies for the ADC if I'm on any alt that isn't a healer or tank. I find I don't have to wait a lot if I'm going as a tank though.

I tab out of game also, but to avoid having to keep checking for fear of missing the queue, there is an option you can use to enable game sounds even if the game is running in the background...so you'll hear the queue when it pops up ;)

Well I tend to queue as a tank and my wife queues with me as a healer, so out wait time is about .2 seconds. Not much time to do anything other than click a button to teleport into the dungeon. Although it sucks when I do queue as DPS, "estimated wait time is 15 minutes"....30 minutes later.

Matt stole my answer too! I was going to say "I breathe."

I do the same on my dps. If I cant find a tank from the guild to queue with i will go run some dailies or sit and hoc jc and lw in trade chat if i did the dailies already.On my tank i do not have any wait time ever. I click to queue and I get a group.

@ FalgornI feel your pain. I have numerous 80s, most are DPS, but my tank is an herbalist/alchemist.I need herbs to make cards for my main's darkmoon faire rep. But my herbalist gets instant queues, so... yeah.Oddly enough, queueing as DPS on my undergeared priest was getting me groups incredibly quickly last night. Wasn't even able to get halfway through the fp from Dal to AT grounds. lol

@DraelanYou probably get fast queues BECAUSE you're undergeared. A few weeks ago, the hosts of The Instance were talking about the LFG tool, and apparently it tries to group people up so that they will succeed. (Meaning, they won't group a bunch of overgeared players together when there are some undergeared ones that won't be able to do it in a group of undergeared players). Since there are (probably) less undergeared people using the LFG queue, you probably get priority because you have a lower gearscore. Maybe. It was kind of a rumor.I usually do Argent Tournament dailies, farm meat or mine. I always do the cooking daily right after I get in my first queue of the day (after logging into the inn in Dalaran). The usual stuff.
