    How do you use the chat facility in game, and is it possible to contact other players?

    How do you use the chat facility in game, each time I want to chat to someone whilst completing a quest with them, Iím having to open up the community tab, click on their name and click whisper just so that the chat box pops up where I can type in it. Is there an easier way to do this, without having to open up other tabs, and also is it possible to contact other players such as via a private message? Thanks

    How to use whisper in-game

    Chat does most of the things you want. Whisper basically IS a private message - only you and whoever you whisper can see it. There are several ways to use it:
    1. in a party or raid, click someone's name to bring up their info bar, then rightclick that, select Whisper
    2. in chat, rightclick someone's name, select Whisper
    3. hit enter to open chat, click the bottom left hand corner (next to where you type), select Whisper then the character's name
    4. use a shortcut: /w /whisper /tell /t /wh then the character's name
    5. use default whisper shortcuts
      Reply to whisper: Alt+shift+W
      Whisper again: Ctrl+shift+W

    Couple of other tips: Make sure Whisper is actually selected to display in the Tab Settings of the tab you are using (by default it is deselected in Trade chat, for example). Rightclick at the top of a tab to see Tab Settings.

    You can set up custom tabs via Tab Settings, including custom colours (many people setup a tab just for combat for example) and rebind some shortcuts - see Options > Key Settings>Misc.

    Hope this helps
