Menu Chat Improvement

Being a menu chat player, i have some disadvantages when it comes to communication. I would really like to see some improvement in the menu chat system. It is very good right now as it is, but i always see problems when i am trying to communicate with other players. It would help a lot if they could understand what i am trying super hard to say.........and not think i am crazy person. lol. Anyway, these are some ideas for menu chat that i think would help me, as well as others:

FOR REGUALR MENU CHAT:
"Flee the duel." (this one would be helpful for dungeons. they go into battle, you walk around it, and then they can teleport to you. it saves you battling. it has been hard telling people to flee like this. they think i am crazy)
"Let's go to your house."
"That is a quest you have to solo."
"Please stop teleporting to me."
"That might take too long."
"That quest is too hard."
"It won't let me teleport to you."
"Get more mana."

FOR BATTLE MENU CHAT:
"FLEE!"
"I have to flee."
"Don't flee."
"Don't use up my traps."
"Don't use that spell."
"Don't heal me."
"Pass."
"I can heal you."

Please think about adding these to menu chat, kingsisle! It would really help me out of struggling to get someone to know what i am saying.

P.S If anybody else has more ideas that you would find helpful, please post them on this post. :D

I'm not limited to menu chat, except when I'm in a group with menu chat players. These are all good suggestions. I would add:

* I don't have that spell in my deck [Battle chat]
* I don't have any [attacks | heals | buffs ] right now. [Battle Chat]

i think there should be a shop where you could buy phrases for 100 gole each. you could buy phrases like, lets say, a phrase like Go ahead, make my day! or Grrrr! or like a song. they should make wizard101 like club penguin storm.

also you need to add in not the spell type to attack but you need to specify

dagger key gem spiral


don't attack the dagger.

don't attack the key

don't attack the gem

don't attack the spiral..


kill the dagger

kill the key

use your wand.

just a few more ideas

I know about "I can't", but it would nice to be able to give them heads up: "I have no heals" or "I have no attacks", even if they aren't specifically asking for one this instant.

Yea, but see i am NOT ALLOWED to have text chat. My parents won't let me. So i dont really have a choice. But i think improving menu chat would be better for everyone.

Oh yea! I forgot about that. it is soooo annoying when i am dueling and someone needs healing but i dont have a healing spell yet! i say "one minute, i'm busy fighting." and they usually say: "no." "i need healing."
If i said "i cant", they would think i cant heal and flee the duel! I CAN HEAL YOU THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

Sure, but if you are in a group with someone using menu chat, you still need to use menu chat to communicate with them.
