We have our own IRC channel on, #eq2i

The channel is not often used, with the overall decline of popularity of IRC infavor of ingame voice and cross-server chats, but is a useful gathering place during downtimes, or for holding live wiki meetings, or for collaborating on wiki projects with other users (*this may be replaced by Wikia's "on wiki" chat system in the coming months)


It can be found by connecting to, and /join #eq2i

If you already have an IRC client install, and it supports irc:// weblinks, you can use this link: #eq2i

If you dont have a client, or cant use one, try out Wikia's web gateway
