How to stop gold whispers: Search denied

Hello and welcome! Are you tired of those gold spammers whispering you? Are you afraid to turn your whispers off complete just to avoid them? WELL NO MORE! Here is Eden Eternals NEWEST product! the one! the only! Search denied button!


The search button will hide you from this tab:

Warning: Putting search denied on will hide you from anyone using this who might need a party. Search denied will not hide others with it off from you.

You will find the Search denied button under the Chr tab of your settings:


After you have turned Search denied on you should have next to no whispers from gold spammers anymore.

Hope this helps! ~Eden Eternal GS team

Hmm, I heard several people still could get whispered even though they have omitted themselves from the search function x.X

I have yet to see if I still can get whispered when I omit myself from the search xD

So far nothing on my side, and I started doing this since day... 3 of Open Beta or something around there.

...I still remember when this was first suggested on Grand Fantasia. Oh, the complaints about it being an ineffective way to combat gold whispers. Haha... ._.

It won't prevent direct whispers (i.e. initiated through r-clicking name on chat box or if they can see you (target > whisper) ) but will prevent them from finding you through the Search function and then spamming their message that way.

Meaning that it's only effective against bots that aren't in the area you happen to be in. But if you actively use world chat, you're screwed. Not a very effective way to combat bots, honestly, since the same doesn't work on GF and KS. They see you chatting = they whisper you.

Oooh, no wonder on GF I still got whispered by them every time I chat on the World chat too much even though I have hid myself from search all the time.

On EE, I haven't gotten any single whisper yet coz I don't talk too much on world chat due to lack of world calls xD

Haha, Well I never said it will prevent all gold whispers, Just next to none.
