WoW Emotes – 213 Amazing World of WarCraft Emotes

Click WoW Voice Emotes – 53 Amazing World of WarCraft Voice Emotes if you are looking for the voice Emotes

WoW emotes or emoticons are a great way of expressing yourself in World of Warcraft and so its a great idea to memorise a few and then have this list ready for when you need more!

Emotes can be used with no target selected, targeting yourself, another player or NPC. Some WoW emotes will do different things depending on what your target is.

To use an emote, click into your main chat command window or just hit the slash / key. With focus on your main window you can begin by typing the slash command /   Then followed by the emote you want to use.

WoW Chicken Emotes
WoW Chicken Emotes

To call someone a chicken, target them and type in   /chicken   and the text will turn orange as the defualt colour to signify an emote. When you hit the “return key” the emote will execute and all around you will see it.

All WoW emotes are executed on the command line can can be made into a simpe macro and then a shortcut button for speedy access  during combat or just one that you may use a lot. Unfortunately  since Blizzard removed automation commands (due to farming) on the macro page you can no longer que up commands that would include a spell, then a pause (or wait commands as it used to be) and then your emote. You can however have up to 255 characters to try and achieve what you need.

How to Use a WoW Emote in a Short Macro

  • /sleep
  • /say time for a nap
  • /em DND, Sleeping

WoW Emotes Macro

This would be the effect of that macro, along with the sleeping animation. The first line creates the sleeping animation, second line makes yoy character say “time for a nap” and the last adds a personal emote using /em DND, (Do Not Disturb) Sleeping.

If you wish to make your own World of Warcraft emotes you can use the /em command with any combination of text you like.  This will not have any sound or graphic animation unless you add an additional emote to enchance yours followed by what ever text you wish.

  • /cry
  • /em misses EverQuest!

Your personal emote /em will also start with your characters name to show others that its you crying.

Here is a list of WoW emotes, Some of them have associated animations and sound. Funny WoW emotes add another dimension to your character and i always enjoy chatting to players that use WoW emotes freely in everyday chat.

If you are unsure on how to make a macro, its worth checking out my other pages on WoW Macros and WoW Slash Commands. These will help you put together some great commands for your character that will have your friends amazed!
