* These fields are defunct and should always be received as value
0x00000000 or a debugging value such as
0xbaadf00d (see this article on Wikipedia for more info).
** For STAR/SEXP/SSHR/JSTR, this field is UTF-8 encoded. For all other clients, it is ISO 8859-1 encoded. It must also be no longer than 255 characters; official clients should only be able to send 224 characters (including the null-terminator).

- This is sent for each user who is already in a channel when you join it, as opposed to EID_JOIN, which is sent when a user joins a channel you have already joined. It is also sent when logged on using D2XP/D2DV and a user requires an update to their statstring - for example, by logging a different character onto a realm.
- The text value is the user's statstring.
- This is sent when a user enters the channel you are currently in.
- The text value is the user's statstring.
- This is sent when a user exits the channel you are currently in.
- The text value is an empty string.
- This is sent when a user whispers you.
- This is sent when a user (excluding self) in chat speaks.
- This is sent when a server announcement is being made globally.
- The username supplied for this event is now always
Battle.net. Historically, the username was the name of the Battle.net Administrator who sent the broadcast.
- The flags field for this event is used and indicates what special conditions exist for the channel in question. See Battle.net Flags for more information.
- This is sent to inform the client of an update to one or more user's flags.
- Battle.net usually sends this event for every user in the channel, even if only one user's flags have changed. This behavior can be exploited to detect invisible users, by performing an action (such as an unsquelch) to provoke a flags update. Users included in the flags update whose presence has not been indicated by
EID_SHOWUSERcan then be added to the userlist as invisible. Care should be taken, however, to account for the possibility that an asynchronous send error has occurred. Should an
EID_SHOWUSERevent occur for an invisible user, they should be marked as a normal user, not readded to the userlist.
- Some 3rd party server implementations also use this for dynamic ping updates.
- The Flags and Ping fields in this packet is equal to the originating user - the one who sent the whisper. In other words,
EID_WHISPERSENTcontains your flags & ping, not those of the person you whispered.
- See info on
- It is probably safe to assume that the text and user data for this message follows that of EID_CHANNELRESTRICTED.
- This is sent when attempting to join a channel which your client is not allowed to join.
- The text field contains the channel name.
- The user data is your own.
- This is information supplied by Battle.net. This text is displayed in different colors depending on the client.
- The user data in this event is usually that of the user that triggered the event. For example the response to the
/whoamicommand will come from yourself, but a ban message will come from the operator who issued the ban.
- This is error information supplied by Battle.net. This text is usually displayed by clients in red.
- The user data in this event usually follows the same rules as EID_INFO.
- This is sent when any user (including self) uses the emote feature in chat.
