Good communication is the key to success in MMORPGs like Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. Being able to talk with other FFXIV account holders, isn’t just fun, but it’s also crucial when it comes to dealing with high-end content. Learning how the chat system works can help you setup your next FFXIV Gil run.
The chat system in the game can be broken into two parts, public and private. Players looking to broadcast their thoughts publicly can use the default Say chat mode. Messages typed while this mode is active will be received by players nearby. If you want to reach a larger audience, for example when looking for more party members for a FFXIV items or FFXIV Gil run, then Shout is what you want. This chat mode sends your messages to players across a larger area. You can use Shout by typing “/sh” before your message.
For those looking for a little more privacy, the tell chat mode can be used to relay messages to specific players. This can be used by typing “/tell” followed by the recipient’s name, then the message. Players in a party can also talk in party chat with “/party” to ensure that their conversations stay within the group while out looking for FFXIV Gil.
