CHT (enhanced CHatTool) is an addon for Raid groups scattered over multiple guilds.
Its main aim is to provide a communication platform like the guildchannel or the groupchannels like party&raid.


  • Multiple custom channels use only one real custom channel.
  • Allways know who you are talking to, even if your opposite chats with his/her twink.
  • Classchannels for raids.
  • Tank, DD and Healer channel for raids.

Chatlog Entry

The chatentry header consists of 4 different parts.

  • the channelname
  • your guildtag
  • your nametag
  • your charactername

Depending on your configuration it may differ from the following example.
[channelname][guildtag][nametag][charactername]: <chatmessage>

channelname: The channelname can only be one of these: Global, Tank, DD, Healer or a Classname.

guildtag: The guildtag is a automatically created shortform of your configured guildname and can be displayed.

nametag: The nametag identifies you to your conversational partner so that your partners know who they are talking to even if your are chatting with one of your twinks.
