Social Window

To open the Social Window, press O. The Social Window is one of the main tools used to interact with the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ community. Use this window to add friends, search for other players, add players to the ignore list, and check on your Guild. The top right of each tab displays how many friends or overall players are currently online.


Access this tab to keep track of the players you have added to your Friends List and view their whereabouts, level, and class.

To add a friend, click the + icon at the bottom of the window, type in the player's name, and click ADD FRIEND to include him or her in your Friends List. You can also type /friend and then the player's name to add someone to your Friends List. To remove a player from your Friends List, select the player and click the – icon.


Use this tab to locate players for group missions, Operations, Flashpoints, and other events that suggest or require two or more players to complete. The tab shows a list of players, which includes their name, level, class, location, Guild, and whether they are looking for a group.

You can filter your search by Name, Level, Class, Planet, and LFG status. Type in what you would like to filter by in the text box at the top of the window to begin.

NOTE: This feature is only available to subscribers or Preferred Status players (i.e. a player who hasve made a purchase via the website).


The Ignore tab lists the players you have chosen to ignore. Chat from the players on this list is filtered from your chat window. An ignored player cannot send you mail or trade items with you.

To ignore a player, click the + icon on the bottom of the window and type their name. To remove a player from the Ignore list, select the player and click the – icon.
