Because players could now customize their hotkeys in RO, the Chat Box had to be adapted to allow usage of hotkeys that were restricted in the past.

Chat Boxes typically have word filters to allow players to restrict the view of profane language.

Both Ragnarok Online and Ragnarok Online II feature Chat Boxes for in-game communications as well as Ragnarok: Valkyrie Uprising and Ragnarok: Ash Vacuum.

The Chat Box in RO2 is more reflective of modern MMORPGs in that it is already designed to allow players to not only communicate with other players but also view and toggle system messages.

Unlike RO, RO2 players are limited to only 4 tabs so refined and distinctive chat tabs are not possible in the game.

To create completely separate Chat Boxes, click on the lock icon on the corner of the Chat Box and click on the symbol to create new Chat Boxes; clicking on the - symbol deletes the tab.

Each tab/Chat Box can display certain information by clicking on the circle icon on top of it. Press F10 or click on the corner of the Chat Box to adjust the height of the main Chat Box.

There is currently no way to adjust the width of the main Chat Box, however, the additional Chat Boxes made by unlocking the Chat Box can have their width and height adjusted freely. To save a chat log, enter the following into the Chat Box: Doing so will product a file in the Chat folder of the Ragnarok Online folder.

It is unknown how much information the chat log system collects, but it's been reported to save up to 200 lines of chat.
