Could not agree more. I've been using Rift Mobile but as that is still in Beta it's occasionally buggy. I'd much rather have a separate channel without having to put dozens of players on ignore because I really don't feel the need to read their conversation about anal sex (this is just one example of 50 chat on my server).

There is simply no way for me to see when a zone event happens without. I am fine with missing the opportunity to PUG raids and raid rifts but I would love to see when these events happen so I can participate in this portion of the game.
Can we PLEASE have a channel or set of channels that announce zone events but disallows public input?
Then that's the solution to it. Please put these announcements in the world defense channel. Thanks!

Either allow everyone to see Zone Events through the World Defense Channel no matter their level, split up the World Defense in to level appropriate channels that unlock as you level (much like the Common Chat Channels now), or just copy the concept of the Common Chat Channels and unflag the ability for player blah-blah-blah.

This would be great, especially for those zone events you didn't complete on the way to 50.
