FANDOM


Some commands require a parameter, and some commands have optional parameters. For example, /join takes two parameters, one option and one required. So it is listed as /join <channelname> [password]. In this case, <channelname> must be given, but [password] can be left off.

Chat Commands

These commands are used to say things to other players. Unless otherwise noted, these channels are displayed in your current language. So, for example, if a Night Elf is currently speaking in Darnassian, Human players would not be able to understand them.

/e, /em, /emote, /me <message>
Emotes <message> to all players in the general area, similar to /say, except displayed as "Player <message>". So, for example, "/emote loves the WOW Wiki." would be displayed as "Player loves the WOW Wiki." Unlike other chat commands, this one does not use your current language. Across faction boundaries it simply displays "Player makes some strange gestures."
/c, /csay <channel> <message>
Sends <message> to all players in <channel>. This does not use your current language. You can also use /# (where # is the channel number) to send a message to <channel>.
/g, /gc, /gu, /guild <message>
Displays <message> to all members in your guild.
/o, /osay <message>
Displays <message> to all officers in your guild. (You must have the 'Officer Chat Speak' privilege to use this)
/p, /party <message>
Displays <message> to all other party members. This does not include other people in your raid group, use /raid for that.
/r, /reply <message>
Replies to the last player to send you a /whisper
/ra, /raid, /rsay <message>
Displays <message> to all other raid members.
/s, /say <message>

/sh, /shout, /y, /yell <message>
