WoW Chat Commands – 41 Essential’s

Wow chat commands are an essential part of World of Warcraft and can be a powerful tool when chatting with other players. The more chat commands you know the easyer and fatser it will be to communicate with your group or raid parties and therfore have a much more enjoyable experience.

WoW chat commands can also be used in combinatioon with WoW Emotes and WoW Commands within the WoW console.  They create a very powerful way of scripting but not automating a lot of the functions within WoW and will make game play smoother and faster.

They will also let you party or raid groups know what you are doing or if you need assistance with something.

To help run an active fast paced XP group with players that know the drill, the Main Assist (sometimes also the Main Tank) could setup some short macros and place them on the Hot key Bar

WoW Chat Commands


  • /say Incomming %T
  • /say Assist me to slay %T and Kill it!!


Here i have used the /say command to let all around me know we have a new target incomming and be ready to kill but this could easily be setup with the /p command for your party or /raid for your current raid.

NOTE: Too much of this kind of script in chat can be annoying sometimes, so please pick your balance right so you will still get future group invites.

Try a few different combination until you find ones that suite your character.
