Chat Emotes

Bob
Several emote commands are available in the chat window, such as /wave and /dance, that will broadcast a local text message saying that you waved or you danced. You can also direct the emote at a specific character by selecting the character and then typing the particular emote command. The emote messages are only broadcast locally, so they'll only show up in the Chat and Local tabs, and only for those players within local range.

As an example, if Player1 types /battlecry into the chat window with no characters selected, here's what will be displayed in the local channel:

What Player1 sees: You shout a battle cry.
What other players nearby see: Player1 shouts a battle cry.

And if Player1 types /battlecry with Player2 selected, here's what will be displayed:

What Player1 sees: You shout a battle cry at Player2.
What Player2 sees: Player1 shouts a battle cry at you.
What other players nearby see: Player1 shouts a battle cry at Player2.

Can we eventually get an "I Emote in your general direction" emote? smile

Any chance these will eventually be followed by animations and sounds?
Ryan Dancey
@Zayvian - if the Crowdforging process directs us in that direction, yes.

Emotes are something I (surprisingly) miss. I'm not used to play games with actual people around and I feel I want to do stuff all the time… jumping just goes that far…

I'm with Schedim on this one.
Emotes are valuable for social interaction, and a some animations (wave, bow, dance, sit) will certainly add value for many gamers. Certainly not critical or urgent, but worth having at some point.

Text emotes are a great start though. thanks.

(btw, is it bad form to read someones entrails just after killing them?)

yeah, I like emotes too but would put them lower down on the scale of things to do, right after a DT bank, a company bank and a settlement bank. smile

At first glance I thought that said /strokechicken.
Hammerfall: Like a waterfall, but tougher.
