    Didn't tried it.
    Yeah, It would be great if you can use a "voice communication" under a mission to speak with your teammates...

    Head set communication would be so awesome. I don't have a head set but i could get one.

    Well the most of us in the WSC use Ventrilo to speak ingame and it do make a BIG dif. as u often talk faster than u write as u r attacking at the same time image

    ts2 and ventrillo basically the same thing but can't join vent servers or vice versa but i know wsc is a big guild and how can you guys stand talking with vent with a guild 40+ members in gw? i could be wrong about your guild but your name sounded like another big guild in gw

    Voice communication is not featured in the game client as of yet. One version of the game does come with a headset from Logitech, and a copy of TeamSpeak, I believe.

    However to use voice communication you will need to use a VoIP program, like TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, Roger Wilco, etc. You will need to get the connection information of the group you wish to communicate with, in many cases this information is usually meant for guild members of a certain guild.

    One other program that is considering VoIP technology is XFire.

    xfire is supporting teamspeak with automatic join capabilities if I remember correctly.  Our guild uses Teamspeak and it works great.  You just need to create a seperate channel for different parties.  Most of the hardcore players are using it without a problem.  However if you have a dialup connection you might have difficulty running both Guild Wars and Teamspeak.

    XFire supports both Ventrilo and TeamSpeak that I have tested. However XFire itself is also checking randomly with registered members to ask what they would like to see as additions to it. One of which was it's own VoIP capabilities.

    You have probably mixed up us with some other guild. We are not so big, but not so small either in Guild Wars image

    About Ventrilo (voIP "voice communication program"), and that we are 40+ members on ventrilo... you can make different rooms in Ventrilo, and we are just so many ppl in each channel that we are for a mission or a PvP. or if you mean how we can be 40+ on our ventrilo server (cause in new ventrilo servers you can only be 8 as max, or you have to pay for more slots) is that we are using a old ventrilo server with a limit on 200users.

    Ventrilo is a GREAT way to use if you are playing guildwars. Like WSC Sleipner said before, it can be quite hard to write to your team while you are attacking a mob or busy with something else. Teamspeak2 is another voIP (voice over IP) program you can use for your guild.
