I'm a little confused about how /sh works. Every time I used /sh, I get no responses. I also don't see anyone else chatting in /shout. What is the distance on this? The world feels empty to me without seeing random spam =(

If it's like FFXI, /shout is seen/heard in the entire zone.

As for chatting in shout that's pretty much a no no. I wouldn't expect many people to chat in shout.

I'm reasonably sure this isn't correct unless they changed it in retail. I was able to outdistance the RMT shouts without going very far. Shout seemed to have a somewhat short range in beta. Might have changed tho = /

Actually, unless they changed something since I've been gone /shout in FFXI didn't always cover the entire zone. Whitegate was a good example were if I stood on one side of the zone I couldn't see people shouting on the other. I noticed the same thing during Beta when it was easy to test thanks to RMT: their spammed shouts disappeared once I got a certain distance away from them even if I didn't change zones.

So shout covers a large range, but not the entire zone if it's the same as beta.

Edit: Beaten to it!

It is what XI went by as far as the effective distance of shout, say, spells, etc. If XIV is like XI as far as the Yalms of certain actions goes, then this list will give you an idea.
