Help Index :: Communication :: Tell


tell : list the most recent tells you have received
tell : send a private message to a specific player
to : interact with a mob/npc


The 'tell' command allows private communication between players. Unlike
chat, gossip, and auction, which are all public channels, and
grouptell, tell is a private channel which only includes
yourself and your 'target.' Use of tell thus enables you to have secure
conversations and helps reduce spam on the public channels.

To list the most recent 'tells' which you have received, type 'tell' with
no arguments. Tell is used for out of character (ooc) discussions.

Frequently you will need to share some information or respond to a mob's
query. For this, see help
to and help ask.
