Emote

From Lotro-Wiki.com
Jump to: navigation, search

Emotes are commands that are entered on the chat line. All commands are prefaced by '/'. Emotes can also be activated by clicking on the chat bubble and making a selection from the emote menu.

You can perform a custom emote by using the /me or /em command on the chat line. This has no animation, but allows you to supply your own emote text. You can also override the default message for any of the other emotes by specifying additional text after the emote on the command line.

Emotes can be further customised by creating an alias.

Example: -- Creating an alias called ";hi":
/alias ;hi /shakefist shakes his fist at ;target and yells, 'Get off my lawn!'
By selecting another player and typing ";hi" -- your character performs the /shakefist emote animation and outputs the text:
<your name> shakes his fist at <your selection> and yells, 'Get off my lawn!'

See: Aliases and Quickslot Shortcuts for more information.

The first line of text in the list below is the output of the emote when nothing is selected. The second line of text is the output when anything (such as another character or an object) is selected.

Unless otherwise noted, the emotes have a corresponding character animation.
