This has been happening allot to me, I open my inventory, and i'm either training pets or giving companions orders when suddenly I receive a message from a friend, since we don't have a shortcut to whispering you have to click on their names, this action closes your inventory just so you can whisper back... what i'm trying to say is could you please make shortcut whispering or at least make it that your inventory doesn't have to keep closing every time you whisper to a friend... I guess I don't have to whisper back, but that would be rude... Thanks for reading this!
In w101 the r button, is used as "reply". It opens that chat box with the setting already to a whisper to whoever last sent you a whisper, so all you have to do is type. I hope pirate101 gains this shortcut!
