Chat Commands


/help [emote/guild/normal] – Shows the player all of the commands available in area specified.

/hidecorpses [all/none/allbutgroup] – This command allows the player to choose to not see other player’s corpses in-game.  This allows for less lag in situations where there are many corpses around. Keep in mind that the all and the allbutgroup options will hide NPC corpses. Your own corpse is never hidden. The default is none.

/ignore – Will block all text from that character.

/inspect [ON/OFF] – Toggles on and off your ability to inspect others with a right-click of the mouse. Use this toggle if you use the mouse for movement and find yourself accidentally inspecting others.

/invite [target] – Invites targeted player into a group. This command can only be executed by the group leader.

/invwinlabels – For Velious subscribers only. This command toggles on and off the descriptions for the full screen mode inventory.

/language – Returns the number of the language that you are currently speaking. /language [help] returns a list of languages and their identification number. /language [#] sets the current language.

/lfg [ON/OFF] – Indicates that you are “Looking for a Group” in the /who and “/who all” lists.

/location or /loc – Displays the character’s current location coordinates within the zone. The location will show as x, y, z.

/loot – Allows the character to loot a corpse from a short distance. The corpse must be targeted when performing this command. You can achieve the same result by right clicking on a corpse.

/lootnodrop [ALWAYS/SOMETIMES/NEVER] – This command is used to specify how you loot no drop items on corpses. Always is default and will cause a prompt box to always be shown when looting no drop items. Set to sometimes so only items not usable by your character will show a prompt box. When you have this set to never, you will never get a confirmation box to see if you want to loot or not.

/me – Same as /em

/mousespeed [0-3] – Changes the mouse travel speed across the monitor. 3 is the maximum setting (the higher the number the faster the mouse moves). Don’t set this above 3. Your mouse will move too quickly and you will probably not be able to play.

/msg – This is the same as using /Tell.

/note – Allows the player to write notes when in-game to be referenced later out of game. This creates a notes.txt file of the text. Each line of text sent using /note is appended to the end of this file. There is a maximum number of 455 characters when creating a note.

/ooc – allows you to say something as yourself, not as your character, heard throughout the zone. Please only use this channel for out of character speech, and please try to limit your out of character speech to this channel.

/petition – Used to request assistance from a GM. The more detailed is, the quicker the assistance can be rendered. To prevent ‘spamming’ of the petition queue, each character can only send in one petition (for as  long as that petition is in the queue).

/played – Returns the birth date and hours played for the current character.

/quit – Immediately exits the game. However, when you exit in this manner, your character has not ‘camped out’ in the proper fashion, and he or she will remain in the game world for a short period after you have quit. Your character will be under the control of the server, and may very well die while you are not there to tell it what to do. So only use this command when you are in a rush to leave the game or are in an in-game situation that you can’t get out of with the standard sit and camp method. The risk you take when using this shortcut to exit the game is all yours.

/random [x, x y] – /random x generates a random number between 0 and x. /random x y will generate a random number between x and y. This can be used to decide things randomly, for instance, who gets a recently acquired treasure.

/reply – If a “/tell” is received, the user may respond by using this command. /reply will reply to the very last person to send you a /tell.

/report – Allows a player to report the text that is currently being displayed in the chat window. If you
are reporting harassment, bad language, threats, or other actions by another player, use their character name for the in the report. If you are reporting falling for 10,000 points damage, or other irregularities that affect your character, then use your character’s name. You should then use /petition and let a GM know that you have used /report so that they will know to look for your reported text. To prevent ‘spamming’, you can only send one report at a time. You can do another /report only after zoning. Please make sure to have the text you want to report in the chat window when you use this command, /report will only send the bottom ten lines of text that are actually shown in your chat window. Use Shift-Page Up and Shift-Page Down to move through your chat text until you see the text you want to report.
