- Not to be confused with the popular Youtube video blog, TradeChat.
Trade Chat is a common Chat channel that only works in capital cities and certain sanctuaries (unless you manually join a channel out-of-zone). This channel is intended for buying, selling, and trading of items and services, but is often used for general inane chit-chat.
This is the only chat that isn't affected by the new Cross-Realm Zones that were implemented in Mists of Pandaria. You will still be able to see your own trade chat when grouped with other individuals during a Cross-Realm group.
