An emote is a command used by the player to express emotion and add a little flavor to his/her dialogue. There are two types of emotes.
- A built in emote, such a /smile, where the character will preform the emote and put text into the log
- A manual emote, which begins with '/em and continues to make a custom emote
- For example /em looks at the Mandragora with puppy dog eyes. would show up in the chat as <Name> looks at the Mandragora with puppy dog eyes.
Additionally, for any emote that preforms a motion, you can type /<emote> motion to lose the text and only preform the motion.
Built in Emotes
- /bell (/bellsw)
- See /jobemote notation and requirements for more information
- See /sitchair quests below for more information
Added in the June 2015 Version Update, the /sitchair command allows players to lean their backs against a chair and sit on it instead of on the ground. Entering the command while seated will cause the player to stand up.
In order to use this feature, you must possess the appropriate key item related to the chair you wish to be shown sitting in.
All the /sitchair emotes have to be purchased or crafted, except for the original one (with no number). See the item page for details on where they can be purchased. Using the item gives you the key item required.
Additionally, none of these emotes gives a text dialog when it is used, they are purely action based.
