Chat Bubbles

I would love to see chat bubbles implemented if possible. Obviously some people would prefer to play without them due to roleplaying and stuff so there should be an option to enable/disable them.

Actually, I don't think chat bubbles would be any more immersion breaking than having a Local channel at all. In fact, if we had total immersion we would immediately be able to see/hear who is talking, and chat bubbles would be an excellent indicator of that without resorting to floating names, which I think would be immersion breaking.

I'm in support of this feature, but I think it should be low priority.
[Sylva] is the premier Nature based settlement in Pathfinder Online. We're a family that has come together through the game, and we're one of the most active settlements currently. We have a solid roleplaying foundation and are a home to those who both love and hate PvP.

[The Seventh Veil] is a meta-game group with members in several different settlements. We've created many guides and spreadsheets for the game that are referenced by hundreds of players on a daily basis and we maintain multiple websites like [Goblinary.com], [The Storehouse], and [The Unofficial PFO Atlas] to make information more readily available. The Seventh Veil promotes positive game play at all times.

To argue some, I would say that nameplates wouldn't be any more immersion breaking for some of the same reason you pointed out: if it were total immersion, we would be able to see/hear who is talking, and those of us with high perception would likely see and recognize someone's face.

But yeah, a chat bubble WITH the speaker's name would be good. And then, as a separate, thread-hijacking topic: perhaps include toggle-able, floating names/nameplates for characters, yet they appear at different distances based on perception? Eh? Yeah? No? Who is this annoying rogue stabbing at this thread? smile
