Voice chat

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Voice chat communication software (also known as Voice over IP or VoIP) allows users to talk to each other during gameplay, e.g. to discuss strategies and tactics in real-time. Since communication is a huge factor on team effectiveness, voice chat is nearly essential for high-end PvP.

Since Guild Wars does not include in-game voice chat, players must use third party software, which requires a server (to connect players) and software running the background on the player's computer. Anybody can set this up for a guild or other groups, since there are several robust programs available at little or no cost.


  • The server-side software can require a lot of computer power.
    • This should be run on a dedicated machine with a broadband connection.
    • There are also no-cost hosted servers made available by the various software publishers.
  • Some guilds and speed clearing teams require use of a voice chat program.
