World of Warcraft is one of the most social games ever made. It started an era of great MMORPGs and made a lot of us introverts want to meet the world. One of the best ways to show your feelings in World of Warcraft is by using emotes. For this article I’ve gathered the 50 best emotes in World of Warcraft, whether useful or funny!
The funniest World of Warcraft emotes
Choo choo! The /train emote will light a party whenever you are. It is perfect to pass time while the raid leader explains the strategy, or when you want to have fun in Oribos.
Is your mate scared of that next boss? Target them and let everyone know they’re chickening out.
If you type /silly in the chat, your character will tell a silly joke. Each race has different silly jokes, so you can have fun on long dungeon dives.
Feeling sexy today? Be proud of your sex appeal and type /sexy to show everyone how hot you are.
World of Warcraft emotes you can use every day
This one is not especially funny, but it could be one of the most useful emote in World of Warcraft. /reload refreshes your interface, which can often solve interface issues.
Think you’re tough? Then why not /challenge everyone around, and see who is the strongest.
Fall on your knees and beg everyone around for that 1 gold you need to repair your stuff. Otherwise, if you don’t want to /beg, you could go around and farm a bit to get the money you need.
Whether you heard a funny joke or saw your teammate die to a boss, /cackle will make you laugh uncontrollably.
Feeling tired? Find a comfy spot and lie down with /sleep. Don’t snore too loudly, please.
What time is it? Where are you? Time to use that /confused to express your feelings.
Ironically, burping is probably the least bad of bad manners you can exhibit in World of Warcraft.
Burping wasn’t enough to disgust your friends? Well, maybe a /fart would do the trick. They might /smell at you afterward, at their own risk. Yes, WoW truly is a classy affair.
Got a secret to tell someone? Use /beckon to ask them to come closer to you. Beware if your war mode is on though, as an enemy could feel provoked.
Let the evil inside you take over and /gloat to make fun of others’ misfortune.
Feeling slavish? /peon will make you crawl servilely. Use at your own discretion.
If your status in Azeroth is still intact after typing /peon all around Oribos, you can lose even more prestige by using /plead. It does exactly as it implies, as you will fall on your knees and desperately plead for forgiveness.
When /laugh is not enough, /guffaw is the best emote to pick. It lets out a huge laugh, one that would definitely hurt your cheeks.
Feeling naughty? You can scare children away or just provoke someone with /rasp, which makes a rude gesture – just as /rude.
If you’re an FPS player, chances are you already use this one on a regular basis. Just as its names suggest, /spit lets your character spit on someone else. Or on the floor, if you are a classy spitter.
Let the moon shine even in Castle Nathria! /moon lowers your pants to show your booty for everyone to see. Luckily, it’s just text-based, and not animated.
Uuuh, what happened here? Use /cringe to move slowly backward, grossed out by something – or someone.
The first impression is important. If you’re meeting someone and want to do more than salute, /curtsey will make your character bow politely.
Why is life so hard? /violin lets you express all the sorrow you have been holding inside for too long.
Yes, master! /grovel makes you crawl and pledge allegiance to your master, whoever your target is.
If you’re tired of something (or someone), /sigh is perfect to express that. You can even add a /shrug for extra drama.
- /laugh /no
Combine two emotes in one macro to let your teammate know that their dad jokes are not that funny.
The best World of Warcraft emotes to use in a raid
This one is a habit I have before each big fight. Typing /crack will make your character crack their knuckles, just like in old action movies when the hero finally meets the villain.
The end of the world is near! Everyone, /flee and stay safe! Also useful when you are getting wrecked by a boss and you should fall back.
This emote should be mandatory for healers in World of Warcraft. It announces to your party that you are out of mana and could use a break.
Yay, congrats. No motivation, but still need to clap to stay polite? /golfclap is the perfect emote. You will applaud politely, but without any enthusiasm.
You’re the most powerful hero of Azeroth, and now is time to show it.
Turn the sound on for a compilation of the two emotes above.
Lick your lips or someone else’s shoes with /lick. It does exactly as its name suggests.
Not everyone is born a fearless hero. Standing right in front of Ragnaros can be intimidating. No one will blame you if you /cower.
Good boy! /pat lets you pet your favorite druid. Or a Tauren, we won’t judge.
The Tauren you just petted with /pat might try to come back at you with a /moo. Be careful.
What is the meaning of life? /question might not give you the answer, but at least you can ask the question.
This one lets you roar at people, showing how fierce and fearless you are.
They better not cross you! With /doom, your character threatens everyone with a cruel spell.
Your teammate just died before your eyes. You can either make fun of them with /laugh, or pay respect with /mourn.
Sometimes, pure strength isn’t enough, and you could use some extra help. You can /pray to the gods for help, but we can’t guarantee they will answer.
The best emote to use in Tirna Scithe or Gnomeregan. /lost is a cry for help to your teammates, asking them to come and get you.
Let’s go! /openfire let everyone know you are ready to open fire anytime.
Your hero comes back to the capital city from a dangerous mission. Wish your friends would kneel before your greatness? That’s the emote you should send them.
The best World of Warcraft emotes for parties
The very best World of Warcraft emote. /dance is a staple in most groups while waiting, or in front of the AH. There are even big events with many players dressed up and dancing around. Extra points for the druid dances.
Turn the sound on for this video, it gets even better.
Cluck cluck cluck! Let your inner chicken out with /flap, the emote that will make you roam around imitating a chicken. It also works with /strut.
Shake your undead/Pandaren/dwarven booty! No one will be able to resist your /shake.
Wait, what’s going on here? /puzzled is the perfect emote when you just got summoned somewhere, and everyone is dancing around naked.
Each race and gender has different flirting lines, so you may need to go Casanova-mode to hear them all. Or head to YouTube, but that’s less fun.
