Chatheads are the term for the icon which "talks" when players and NPCs are engaged in conversation. They are animated and show the face of the player or NPC. NPCs with chat heads vary from humans and gnomes, to dragons and cats. Players' chat heads can show either their default face and hair, or if they have something equipped on their head (for example, a helmet), the equipped item will show.
Chat heads can display emotions such as anger, worry, drunkenness, happiness, shock and sarcasm.
- According to Mod Alec, it takes about six hours to model and animate a chathead.
