    Re: whispering

    What is whispering and how do I do it?

    Recently concluded a sale, and need to "whisper" someone.

    At the moment, my only skil in this internal messaging is the /f m *message* thing.

    Appreciate any help.

    /w *accountname to whisper someone not on your f list.
    or
    /m charname to whisper someone

    whispering is communicating with a single player.

    /w [account] message

    putting a * in front of the account name checks ALL servers in the realm for that player instead of just the server you are on... IF I am not mistaken :)

    That's wrong. To address an account name, you add a *. If you address a character name, you don't.

    if you have a large friends list
    use /f L to find the [number] of the friend you would like to message
    then type /w %f[number] *message* to contact them
    ex.
    Code:
    /w %f3 snappy message here

    I absolutely hate when people type /f m blahblahblah. Im trying to play and get my screen flooded with messages not even for me. Its the most annoying thing. If you're messaging someone specific then type /w *accountname message or what ffejrxx said.

    I'll second that. Please, PLEASE don't get in the habit of messaging your entire friend list. I don't ever feel comfortable giving my acct name out to people in public games for just that reason. I had to whisper some guy repeatedly for days to get him to remove my name from his list as he was using that friends whisper trick every two minutes. There are times (like you're rushing someone and want to invite your friends) that it's useful. But usually you should stick to the individual friend whisper format: /w %f13 message

    I learned my lesson the hard way to not give out my acct name either in pubby games. You end up on everyones friend list and they never clean their lists. Getting people to remove your name from their list is like pulling teeth. One guy I had to spam really bad to get him to finally remove me. I guess he didnt like it either.

    /f m is good if you only have a couple friends 2-3max, but mass spamming gets very annoying

    or you can use
    /whois charname
    to get the *username of people in the same game
