    Every time I click on a vendor now it opens a chat conversation. It adds lag, it blocks my normal chat, it makes me have to click "Goodbye" every time.

    Someone told me this may be an option. I don't see an option to turn this off. Please don't make me have to click Goodbye to the bank vendor 50 times a day. Please don't clear my screen of what I'm ACTUALLY trying to see, which is my custom chat menus.

    "It's the little things that kill" hasn't been more true in a while. The small things that we have to do many times are the ones that dramatically lower the quality of life playing the game.

    Please give us an option to not enter chat mode when talking to NPC vendors. If this was just to hide SotA Map...all I can say is...why? It didn't bother me. It bothers me to clear my screen out when I'm trying to open my bank and adding extra annoying mouse clicks. If it's for new players, then fine, but please add an option to avoid it.

    And the change in view must go, I tried talking to Barry at Owl's Head's bank; he likes to walk to the door when you start to chat then change his mind and come back to you while the first person-ish view follows him up close to the bars... it's awful.

    I am not too fond of this *feature* especially when talking to a banker to put inventory into the bank. My inventory screen disappears and I have to exit the conversation to do what I need to do. What happened to the *hello* key word to initiate a conversation with a merchant, banker, etc? I disabled *Conversation Closeups* - it made no difference.

    Is this a bug or intended?

    Except if it removed please have tool tip for being able to chat to the npc. I think we should be able to talk to every vendor/ npc and get quests from everyone of them like at least rumors/gossip that can turn into quests.. Maybe right click vendor to chat with him/her if you want to talk. Just a thought ;)

    Edited. So to clarify what I was suggesting: when I said right click vendor a dropdown offers chat(vendor conversation) choices.;)

    Yes, for the 1 in 1000 times you actually need to talk to him, we do actually need a good way to talk to do so. Not typing Hello in chat is well killed. But there must be another way that doesn't include actually talking with them!

    +1 Especially for the banker. Getting those bars up in my face is very annoying.

    At the very least the "Goodbye" could close both boxes

    Just checked in a fix that restores the earlier functionality (conversation mode isn't launched for merchants/bankers/trainers until you click the Hello keyword in your chat window) for now until we have a better solution in R42. Should be live ASAP.

    (As a bonus it (a) works in non-English clients and (b) outputs to the system chat window, not the NPC chat window which some users disable)
