Chat windows within Black Desert are your main source of communication and general interaction with anything related to Dialog options. Most players will be very familiar with the typical chat window (default "Enter") functionality seen in many other games.


One of the features provided that may not be so familiar is the ability to create chat macros (The "M" to the right of the chat bar, and an emote menu "S").
