Timestamp Options


With the May patch, there is a new option available in your character options panel, Display Timestamps.

You'll notice that there is some green text to the right of the Display Timestamps option, this is your timestamp format. Basically, you can put anything that will fit into that box, and it will be displayed in grey text at the beginning of each line of text in your chat window. However there are some special character sequences which will be replaced by various numbers representing the time and date.

So, what substitutions are available?
