I have a suggestion–the game chat needs to allow things like “@” or “-” or other simple characters. It seems like the only non-alphanumeric characters allowed are very basic punctuation characters.
If i want to have a chat with a (non-guild member) player, how do i do this?
There is a little chat bubble near the top left corner. If you need to directly message someone you can add them as a friend through world chat to speak in DMs or you can talk with them in World chat.
Yes all you have to do is add them from the world chat and then you can select their name in the messaging tab and send it to them privately.
