The emotes interface
The emotes interface

The emotes interface is an action window. It allows you to view what emotes you have unlocked for your character. The emotes interface displays all of the emotes that you can unlock, and highlights the ones you can use. Some emotes are only available in certain areas, for example the Clan Theatre emotes.

As with the majority of action windows you can adjust its size, swap and dock it with other interfaces, and move it around your game window.

Emotes are pre-defined actions that your character can do. There are a lot of ways to unlock emotes, such as completing holiday events, quests and achievements as well as earning them through the Members Loyalty Programme. Some pets and clothing items come with built-in emotes.

The emotes that are available to you are rendered in full colour, while those that are currently locked are displayed as shadows of figures. You can unlock these emotes by completing quests, special holiday events and random events. You might like to start opening new emotes by exploring the Stronghold of Security.

To activate an emote simply click on its icon and your character will perform it.

You can filter your emotes using the drop down list on the bottom left of the emotes interface. The categories are:

  • All
  • All (unlocked)
  • Greetings
  • Conversation
  • Dance
  • Feelings
  • Mime
  • Zombie
  • Holiday
  • Achievements
  • Weather
  • Treasure Trails
  • Loyalty
  • Clan Stage
  • Clan Audience
  • Store Emotes

Note that when in Legacy mode the interface functions exactly the same. The only difference is that it will have a slightly different appearance, cannot be moved or otherwise modified, and is accessed via the ribbon, rather than being docked with the chat interface.



These emotes are available to every player from when they are first in-game.
