Hey just wondering why no one can talk by typing? does it have to do with paying or parental controls what?

Please see this page in our players guide for more information about the types of chat.

Ways to Chat

There are three different types of chat. Depending on your account, and how it is setup, one or several of the chat types below may be available to you. The three types of chat available to Wizards are:

1. Menu Chat: This is also referred to as "bubble chat". It is completely safe and all free players (and under age 13 Wizards) may use the Menu Chat.

2. Text Chat: This is a form of chat that allows you to communicate with others using words from our dictionary. Subscribers and Wizards that are over age 13 may use this type of chat.

3. True Friend Chat: This is the same as "Text Chat" except it is enabled through the use of a "True Friend" code. If a Wizard knows a friend in real life, outside of the game, they can exchange a code that will allow them to communicate with one another. It may be used by Wizards of all ages.

If you are over 13, you need to log into the website, click My Accounts under your name, and follow the instructions under Account Management for changing your chat settings.

If you are under 13, you will need the parent account to activate chat, if they choose to do so.
