The Chat Console

The Chat Console is used to communicate with other players and execute certain commands.

To access the chat console, click the chat icon (Chatconsolebutton.png) or press the chat key (mapped to ↵ Enter by default).


To chat with other players, open the chat console and type a message, then press ↵ Enter to send it.

Players can change which chat domain they send messages to at any time by selecting from the drop down menu in the chat console or by appending a message with the appropriate tag character. Additionally there are some chat domains that can be quickly selected by pressing the correct key combination.

Domain Tag Shortcut Purpose
Local N/A <chat key> Chat with nearby players within a town hub or zone instance.
Global # ⇧ Shift+<chat key> Communicate with a multitude of players within the same league.
Party % Ctrl+⇧ Shift+<chat key> Chat with all party members.
Whisper @<character> Ctrl+<chat key> Chat with a specific character only. The keyboard shortcut can be used to reply to the last whisper received.
Trade $ Communicate with players for the purpose of trading items.
Guild & Communicate within your guild.
Twitch ^ Communicate with the chat. Only works when streaming through the Path of Exile client. (This feature is removed)

To avoid having the chat console fill up with unwanted messages, players can leave global and trade chat by un-ticking the Join Global Chat and Join Trade Chat checkboxes respectively.

Within each league, the global and trade chat domains are made up of separate channels. When joining global or trade chat, players are automatically assigned to a channel. Players can change to a different channel at any time by using the /global <number> and /trade <number> commands. For example, entering /global 3 would allow the player to join global chat channel 3.

Popular channels

Global 820

/global 820 is a channel for sharing common or uncommon quests that you might encounter in your travels through Wraeclast.

The channel started when Forsaken Masters released, the masters could spawn randomly in areas and to effectively level them it was necessary to share masters with each other. With time it has grown to include challenges, Trial of Ascendancy and other quests that are better to do in large groups.

Users in that channel may use various acronyms to succinctly explain what they're offering. To keep spam to a minimum it is best to avoid repeating what you're looking for frequently.

This is, by far, the most popular global channel.
