Quality of life


Social

Social

We want to make it easy for Slayers to form connections and party up together.

We also made some adjustments to voice chat to make it easier and better to use with your party.

    - The UI now more clearly shows which friends are available to party up and play.
    - It’s easier to see what your friends are currently doing in game.
    - It’s easier to see whether you have your mic muted or unmuted, and whether your voice chat is enabled. You can also able to enable/disable voice chat from the Social Panel.
    - We’ve added notification breadcrumbing and brighter color treatments to make it clearer when you have a new party, friend, or guild request.

  • You can now open up an interaction menu with other Slayers in Ramsgate and in your airship lobby. In Ramsgate, if you are nearby another Slayer, you’ll see an interaction button appear. Through that, a social options menu will pop up, which lets you easily invite them to your party, add them as a friend, or send them a message. In the airship lobby, you can select another Slayer and pull up that same social options menu.

  • Voice chat is now only between party members.

  • You can now use chat commands to perform social functions.
