Generally used when harassed, or just annoyed by someone.
The ignore list can only store 50 names maximum, increased from 25 with Patch 3.3.0. This can be expanded via AddOns (like IgnoreMore), but new ignores may not have the same functionality.
Slash command usage
To ignore a player character:
- /ignore name
- /ignore name realm
To unignore a player character:
- /unignore name
- /unignore name realm
- To remove an Ignore, use Unignore.
- Player characters on your ignore list cannot be matched with you with the /lfd system.
- Player characters on your ignore list cannot ask to duel you.
- Player characters on your ignore list cannot send you mail.
- Note that circumventing an ignore by means of creating alts to contact someone via whispers is considered harassment, and is punishable by GMs if this action is brought to their attention via an in-game petition.
Patch 3.3.0 (08-Dec-2009): The amount of characters a person can ignore has been increased to 50. In addition, players on other realms can be placed on the Ignore list.
