I would like to see a right click on player option to actually chat with other players via headset or in a party chat similar to how clan chat works but with an actual open mic Right click option for actual headset chat via other players, and multiple players in a "party chat" option tab similar to clan chat, but open mic.

I don't think Jagex ever will integrate this. And tbh, I don't think we need it.
There are tons of good services out there already (Discord, Skype, TeamSpeak, ...).

Why invent the wheel again if there's already a good platform, maintained better than they probably could? Maintaining good quality sound is actually quite hard from my understanding. Given how much each platform difference from each other qith quality. Steam being utterly freaking garbage, Skype being super great and Discord being alright. I personally use Discord due to its other uses, like most users.

Plus from the looks of it, Jagex uses Discord as well because most people use it and it is easy to manage.

As I recall, there was some discussion about one day implementing voice chat into the RS client... but it was a very, very long time ago (before Discord even existed), and nothing ever came of it.

& I am glad they didn't. Runescape and third party integrated applications is just a big no go. (referring to Twitch, lmao)

I think Discord is the better option. I have used both but the teamspeak can be
really confusing to set up and make it safe for everyone useing it.

Discord on the other hand seems to have easier set up and seems safer. I used
Teamspeak for years and was glad when i finally saw how easy discord is to use.

If RuneScape was FPS instead of MMORPG .....

I don’t see a point into having voice communication implemented amongst other players on RuneScape when we have an interactive text chat. Unless, ofcourse the repetitive offenders who consistently break the rules can have a way to bypass moderation (it’s difficult to filter what people say than what’s being typed), then this would be the solution.
