The "World of Warcraft" chat box is responsible for showing more than what is said in the chat channels. Combat information, whispers and loot information also appears within the chat frame. By default, the chat box is located on the lower left side of the screen. The chat box may obstruct your view of certain interface add-ons. Fortunately, you can resize the chat box and move it to anywhere on the screen.
