all i get is "cannot send messages with a newly created account"
Be it private messages or zone chat. People can whisper me, but i cannot respond"

Chat was broke in Thursday's update. Not sure if they've fixed it, yet.

EDI: Just checked and it's back to normal now. May want to test it again.

Im getting this same problem too, but i have found that joining other chat rooms is an adequate fix for now, ive at least been able to talk with other players and gain some useful tips on how to play.

Would think so, too. Most f2p games have some restriction for newly created chars regarding the chat system, so that e.g. goldsellers cannot spam chat with their offers, or if they do and get banned, they first have to level a new char to 10. Or there are trolls that like to create new chars for their "show" in the chat (had a game where someone was caught using 10 different chars and creating new ones every now and then just to get argumentations, fights and flamewars going..).

The chat system for private messaging and ingame mail.zone chat included only opens up after 100-200 hrs of ingame play if completed if your a silver or f2p account. its a stopgap measure to keep the system from being overloaded.
