The in-game voice chat seems to work fine, is it just out of habit that everybody is usint TS/Vent? Or are there still bugs/problems with the in-game voice chat?

I think its mainly the fact that if the server goes down, you will still be in contact with everyone, if you use the in-game chat that won't work.

the quality for in-game voice chat compared to something like vent for most people is like a drunken dwarf being dunked in water while trying to sing.

I think it is a customary thing, people use vent because they know how it works. That's why I use it. It also offers the opportunity to talk to anyone, while in game voice only works for those in your raid, party or chat channel.

I just don't find the voice quality offered by the in-game voice chat to be as good as TS or Vent. It may be that not everyone has optimized their set-up for the in-game chat, but it's very rare when I can clearly hear someone in the in-game voice system.

i dunno if this is true for everyone, but i dont use blizzard's Voice chat for one reason. lac of special effects. some people are very loud, others are very quiet, and i need to change peoples volume on a person by person basis, as far as i know this is not possible using the blizzard voice chat.

In-game voice chat sounds awful, and has no configurable options for users who are too quiet or loud. And as mentioned above, I frequently hop on vent when I'm working on something else as a distraction, even if I'm not in game.

My guild has people with a variety of accents, and English is not everyone's first language. The mumbling of in-game chat makes it nearly impossible to understand people.That's why we use Vent.
