Everyone Is Talking!

I was excited as my game began to load up, I was not fully in the game yet but I could hear my guild mates chatting away.

Oh how cool!

It was a thrill to enter into game and hear people you spend time with each day of the week, not just type out a greeting of “hello” but to actually hear them. It does have a few draw backs, that being hearing the voice of that lovely little fae girl in a baritone, ever though everyone knows its a guy playing her. That part is just takes a bit of getting used to.

As the evening wore on, the chatter died down. It became more of the tool that it should be rather than a novelty. People drifted off to other channels and groups, as they went off adventuring. Which is something I also did.

It was while I was out adventuring that I got another big shock, it seemed that the players were not the only ones using the wondrous new voice chat

"Heads up we got one in the zone, yups looked like a named player, call the boys!"

It seemed that the mobs had their own channel!!

ITs her again, way over conned let me tell you..

"ITs her again, way over conned let me tell you.".

It seemed every where I went there was at least one mob who had teamed up with other mobs in some hidden mob channel.

She is not attacking yet, just standing here looking at me. I think she knows we are up to something

"She is not attacking yet, just standing here looking at me. I think she knows we are up to something!"

Ok fine I could see the mobs talking to each other but ….I don;’t think I will ever be able to harvest again with out wondering….

OH GODS its another one, they are going to take a pick to me any morment!! Hide the Rare ore quick.

"OH GODS!! its another one, they are going to take a pick to me any morment!! Hide the Rare ore quick."

Ya that was a bit disturbing. A Node channel? the nodes are talking to each other? Wait till I tell Den Mom!!

It also seems that ….well ….normal usable objects also are banding together on the chat channels.

She is going to try and move me again I can just tell!! Can't wait to see the look on her face when I fall a part! HA that will teach her

"She is going to try and move me again I can just tell!! Can't wait to see the look on her face when I fall a part! HA that will teach her"

I think the final straw to this extra use of OUR chat channels is when I needed a ride and found the cloud busy on the ride channel

So I was talking to one of the griffens in antonica and..oh hand on a sec I have one of those pesky players wanting a ride..

"So I was talking to one of the griffens in antonica and..oh hang on a sec I have one of those pesky players wanting a ride.."

So let this be a warning to you all out there, the voice chat is great for us players but….we are not the only ones out there using it. You will never know now which mob, node or object is talking to there buddies about YOU.

    I knew it! I knew they were doing it all along! But you wouldn’t believe me! Said I was paranoid! Ha! Ha! Vindication!

    I can’t seem to find any anywere. I even went to where you went Elquin. Is there something I need to have checked, or create a room?

    Thank you!

    No Wingers nothing that I know of needed to be checked. I think once they found out that I was on to them about using their own channels, they got more careful about talking when people were around. (( I think they fixed this in one of the patches)

    I’m guessing it was just GMs, or are they still talking to each other? And, if so, are the names of the pictures you uploaded the channel names?

  5. Elquinjena says:

    HI ya Talanann well no I don’t think it was the GM’s and no there was no channel. It was some sort of bug that made the mobs look like they were using the voice chat feature. I thought it was amusing so made it into a story
