How do I add friends when they are not in the same location?

I have a wonderful note here from Scarlet and a question to boot:
Dear Mr Necromancer,

I've tried searching your blog but I can't find the answer to this, so hopefully you haven't answered it already. I did find 'An hour with Jordan Skybane' which was the funniest thing I've read in a long while, I'm definitely going to try that :)

My question is, How do you add somebody to your friends list when you aren't in the same location as them? And how do you add people to your friends list during a battle?

Thanks very much. I love reading your blog!

Kind regards,


Thank you for your pleasant letter! Somedays I miss Jordan Skybane . . . I haven't found a newbie that was as fun as he was yet.

The trick to adding friends when they aren't in the same location or during battle is either through the power of the mystical and magical True Friends Code or through using private messages.

You get your true friend code by clicking this button here.

This will give you a screen with a random code that you can use to add your friend for the next 48 hours on *one* character in your account. Quick, easy, efficient.

Of course, you may be in game, without an e-mail for this person, and you can't just blabber your true friend code around with menu chat or filtered chat, can you? NOPE! That is why we have this second way! What you have to do is to establish some whisper/private/purple text with the person you want to befriend with another one of your characters. Amber and Kyle will now demonstrate how this goes down . . . today we join Amber and Kyle as they sit back and relax with a spot of chat in Malistaire's Lair.

Amber logs off now that she has some private chat established and logs on Aeden here.

Aeden presses "R" and talks to Kyle since he was the last person that account talked to (yup, he's still able to talk to him even though it's a different character . . . that's the magic of whisper chat). Kyle says something back to him (if he doesn't he can't add him). Aeden clicks on Kyle's name in the chat window and adds him as a friend.

Aeden ports to Kyle for powerleveling duties.

I'm not sure if that fully answers your questions, but I hope that helps!

Happy Dueling!

Power leveling? Could you define that some time? And you mentioned AOE spells a few times on Ravenwood Radio, what's that?

Wait, does Kyle have a star pony mount?! So they're a KingsIsle gift now. Huh.

Thank you so much! That's exactly what I wanted to know. I don't think I would've ever guessed whisper chat remembers between characters... how useful!

I'm sure I will have more annoying questions in future, so until then all the best,

Thank you! I didn't know the whisper chat thing. That's useful!
