Emote means to express emotion. In World of Warcraft: Classic, you can make your character "emote" by using predefined slash commands. These commands generate a chat message (typically in a special color) that describes what your character is doing. This chat message is often accompanied by audio and some character action.

For example, using the /thanks command, text displays ("Character thanks target."), an audio file is played (character voice: "Thank you."), and a character animation occurs (character gesticulates).

Some of them have associated animations and sound;

  • if the table has an 'X' in the Anim column, it means it has an associated animation.
  • if the table has an 'X' in the Voice column, it means the command has an associated voiced saying.

This table also shows the difference in what will be communicated depending on whether you have a target selected or not.

Furthermore, you can create your own voiceless, actionless emotes using the /em or /me command. The /em or /me command works like this: If your character's name is Jack, if you type:

/em is looking for Steelbrow.
or
/me is looking for Steelbrow.

This will show up in your chat (and that of others around you) as:

Jack is looking for Steelbrow.
