World of Warcraft first launched on PC in 2004 and is one of the world's most popular massively multiplayer online role-playing games. Developed by Blizzard Entertainment, it's the fourth released title in the Warcraft universe. It allows you to create and level a character, go on quests, defeat various monsters, and explore a vast digital world. But, your character can do a lot more than kill things. Here's a guide to the game's emote system.

Emotes are commands that make your character perform specific movements, such as waving, coughing, dancing, or pointing. They're an excellent way to convey a feeling to the players around you, especially if you're into the role-playing aspects of the game.

This guide is specifically for emotes in World of Warcraft for Windows PC. Lifewire also offers some general tips, along with guides on dungeon etiquette and mounts.
