Sends a private message to a player.

/tell player message

You can also use /t, /whisper, /w, /send, /charwhisper, /cw.


The name of the player to whom you wish to send the message.
Text to send.

It is possible to specify modifiers inline with chat text to pass certain information with the "%" character:

  • %f - Inserts the name of the current focus target or "<no focus>" into the chat text.
  • %n,%t - Inserts the name of the current target or "<no target>" into the chat text.


  • Players can use the tell functionality to send messages to players on any realm in that region.
  • This does not bypass ignore functionality, which means that the character being ignored will see a reply stating as such. It is also impossible to whisper opposite faction players.
