Rift has several different chat channels, a few more than other games.

Depending on the area you are in, you will be in the general channel for that
area, which will be:

/1

Rift also features chat channels for your level range, from:

1-9
10-19
20-29
30-39
40-50

These chat channels are usually:

/4

Finally, there is trade chat, which is only active in cities. This channel is
usually:

/3

The remaining ways to chat are as follows:

/p (Party)
/g (Guild)
/s (Say, local area only)
/ra (Raid)
/bg (Battleground/Warfront)
/y (Yell)
/t (Tell/whisper)

The only correction I would make is the 40-50 is actually 40-49 and 50 is its own channel. You can also type /wf for warfronts.

Every channel people talk in will have a number and a designation like the level range brackets, a zone in the game or trade. So to talk to the people in those channels you just have to type back lash ( / ) then the number you with a space and then type your message. Press enter and boom it should appear in that channel.

So like if you are in Freemarch, Stonefield, Meridian, Silverwood, Gloomwood or Sanctum you type /1 followed by whatever you want to say. If you want to talk in trade you type /3. If you want to talk in the level specific channels then type /4 or whatever.

To reply to someone that whispers to you then you can press R by default.

It should also be noted that as should be obvious regional chats are only available if you're in that region, trade chats are only available in major cities, and as isn't quite so obvious you can only access level-based chat rooms once your level is at that range or higher. IOW, you can chat in everything up to 40-49 at level 43, but not level 50 chat.

Just to make sure most if not all of the ground rules get posted in this topic.
