The Contacts and LFG panel (shortcut: Y by default) shows a list of friends and list of players one has blocked from communications.

Overview[edit]

  • Contacts and LFG panel friends icon.png Friends: a list of all the player's contacts showing status, character name, location, and achievement points. Displays additional information for other players that also have you on their friends list.
  • Contacts and LFG panel LFG icon.png Looking for Group: used to join or create parties for various types of game content.
  • Contacts and LFG panel followers icon.png Followers: a list of other players that have added your account to their contacts list and are not on yours.
  • Contacts and LFG panel blocked icon.png Blocked: a list of players who will have limited contact with your account, suppressing message through chat and mail.

Status[edit]

Players can change their status displayed to other players' contacts lists with the drop down menu next to their account name.

  • Invisible (sets account appear offline)
  • Away
  • Online (default)

Notes[edit]

  • Guilds will still be able to see the last login time of an account even if an account had been set to Invisible.
  • Blocking another player does not prevent that player from seeing your online status or your map location, though the blocked player will receive a "network error" when they try to send a message to the blocker.

Trivia[edit]

  • Prior to the September 17th 2013 update there was a tab called Group search which was replaced with the Looking for Group tab.
    • You can still use the old Group search Status (without using the new Looking For Group Tool), by using the Chat command: /LFG
    • This will add a LFG status that applies a blue search icon next to your name.
    • Blocking a player does not prevent them from seeing your text in any chat channel.
  • Player may set nickname to anyone on their list.
