Who would be up for this?
Seems easier and more effortless than in other games. Unless you are already in a guild of friends, I don't see why not.

If anything would be a shared chat channel for help with quests and dugeons.

Anyone interested?

Have they removed faction restrictions from cabals? Or would we need three?

Uhnn, right. Scratch this.

I created the f13 Chat Channel though. It's cross-everything so it should be useful.

/chat join f13   - to enter the channel
/chat leave f13   - to leave the channel
/chat list f13     - to see who else is in the channel

Then you can add a tab in your chat interface by clicking on the + sign and making sure to pick f13. This is necessary to prevent message to be lost in the /general flood. The #f13 tab title will get red colored when there are new messages.

It can be password protected too, and you can kick and ban people. So it's really guild-chatty.

Read these instructions if you are unable to talk in the channel, or if it doesn't autojoin back when you log in.

The chat system is weird. When you join a channel, including /group or /cabal it doesn't automatically "subscribe" you to that channel apparently. What you want to do is open a new tab for that specific kind of messages and then right click on that tab, and on "Talk to channel" you should put a check on the relative channel for that tab, AND THEN do the same thing under "Subscribe channels ---> Public Groups ---> specific channel for that tab".



Please, feel free to join.

Anyone else having trouble chatting in the f13 channel? if I type /f13 or /#f13 i can't enter anything, if I just use it as my default channel nothing I type is seen. If I try to subscribe to a channel it tells me there's no groups available or whatever.

Anyone else with issues? I'm guessing I messed something up but it just seems odd

Finally, but we haven't tested yet, you should put a checkmark on "Autosubscribe new channels" on all tab, cause it seems you do not autojoin previous channels when you log out and back in. So, this might fix it.

Ok DO NOT USE "Autosubscribe to new channels". That makes a real mess. DO NOT USE IT.

Sounds like you could have the problem I'm having. Have you lost access to all public chat channels?  As in Subscribe Channels > Public Groups just has the computer generated one plus say and tells? If so then it's a known technical issue (always seems to happen to me if I lost connection to the game) that they're working on. Which doesn't make it any better when you've been unable to use chat for about 6 hours  Ohhhhh, I see.

Different problem I think Tyrnan, I haven't lost any chat access

As for Falc's solutions, I couldn't get it working with a new window, had to be kept in the main window but my group window works fine de-tached

Just to remind you all to join the f13 chat when in game. It's pretty cool to have people willing to help you with quests and groups and everything all the time (we are spread across so many differentt timezones).

/chat join f13   - to enter the channel
/chat list f13     - to see who else is in the channel

Remember that you have to manually join the channel every time you log in, and you definitely want to dedicate a chat tab to it, or you will never notice new messages. See you there.

We just finished an all-f13 double-run on the second dungeon, Inferno, and it went very well. This is a group photo from the event.

The f13 chat channel is still buggy as hell but it's not preventing us from meeting up and having good things going on. Despite the game being, as many put it, almost a single player game, the dungeons are lots of fun due to the lack of trash mobs, and worth the "hassle" of grouping up with other f13 folks for rare loot and interesting boss fights.

Take this as advertisement: join the f13 chat channel (or buy the game if you haven't yet), and ask in channel for help with dungeons. Funcom built it in a way that it's always useful to rerun old dungeons, regardless of how much you outleveled them, so as a result everyone is always willing to lend a hand. Don't be shy.

Also, but this is just a personal side note, time to scrap that :lol Funcom: bullshit.

Not quite, because there's still a good bit of :lol Funcom: bullshit in the game - like the bugged up quests and the chat channels fucking up.

But yes, they got the server shit right, as in the servers aren't melting and I haven't ever really had trouble logging in. And goddamn but the game is fun.

Kinda agree. Really enjoying the game, but there is still a borderline-unacceptable amount of jank here for a modern been-8-years-since-WoW MMO. Now that I know ya'all have a chat channel, I'll join it. I'm not a fan of my nickname, but they wouldn't let me do "DQ".

Well I was the one who started the lolfuncom thing and it was mainly about why pre-release I never even bothered to look at information about the game or try the open beta. But yeah, this is a great game. We'll see what happens at release, but I'm finding TSW a lot more fun than I found the GW2 beta.

If you can read this, you're on a board populated by misogynist assholes.

Just for fun, the Leaderboard for XP earned among the f13 people. As far as I know my friend list has you all, so I only had to edit out the few non-f13 friends (the blanks in the picture).





In short, Segoris get a life.  why so serious?

I find it funny that I'm not one of them.  I can't seem to play this game longer than an hour before needing a break.

I've had some freetime lately, yes.  awesome, for real

More importantly though, I'm almost never alone, which means I earn XP at a much faster rate (also some quests later on give 1mil xp per quest along with whatever you get for mobs). I've been in the same duo since Blue Mountains and we're now in the last part of Trans (and have re-done most of the zones for achieves and what not for clothing)

The times I'm on alone I don't get shit done because the game plays entirely different for me as it's a bit less fun (though still fun)

I would like to duo the later zones but don't have a partner and my friends aren't there yet.  Going solo I find the ap per hour to be faster over powering Kingsmouth town than barely surviving Translyvania.

Blue Mountain sucks solo as well.  God I hate that zone... love the look of it though.

The Bog was awful (and I left BM before even getting to it, so I was over-geared when I did finally get back to it). The biggest problem with BM is it is not appropriately tuned in difficulty to a point where it is actually easier to farm some lair mobs (near the mines) or go to Egypt then it is to do a number of the BM quests at the intended level. It's being nerfed soon though which will help, but I'd still suggest finding a good duo/trio and hitting content.

How the eff did I pass you?  I'm behind you in content.  I'm only like halfway through BM.

edit:  I do lots of fusang and dungeons with people when they're on.  That might be it.  I'm also unemployed and a cat ass apparently.

No idea.  Maybe you kill more stuff than I do.  Or do more instances. Or PVP (this could be it).

Maybe I have a 10% exp reduction for choosing the Sara Palin face/hair combo.

Well, with the chat channel being busted, this is sorta relevant.  We created a cabal on the dragon side a few days ago.   If you're dragon, and want people from here to talk to until they fix chat again send a message to me, Seraphim, or Njal (Ardahl, Leanan, Raineth).  There's one on the illuminati side also, but I'm not sure who set it up or can give invites.
