When Thermalix and Mechalis submit their “Petition to Address the Dire Lack of Rocket Camels” to Blizzard, they also plan on sneaking in a document or two supporting the addition of some new emotes. Here’s what they’ve come up with so far, demonstrated (sorta) by Thermalix and Caliverne:
/arrr or /yarr
We got the hat. We got the pants and the shirt. We got parrots galore! It’s about darn time we had a pirate emote. There could also be /ninja. You could use either one when you
are about to steal need loot for transmog purposes. Yeah, I need those shoulders. THEY MATCH.
/omg or /wtf
Especially handy for those who use the Dungeon Finder or LFR regularly. We’ve all been in those groups where that “Thing You Don’t Do” becomes the “Thing That Idiot Just Did.” There is clearly a need for an emote to express the frustration and shock one feels at the moment when you realize you have a mage tank!
For use when you are the one who has done the “Thing That Idiot Just Did.” (See: Thermalix, Smart Move #3201: Run up to Helix Gearbreaker in Deadmines Heroic to start a conversation about his fears.)
While many are fond of the air guitar, Mechalis also suggests we add the air drumset and the air accordion just to keep things varied. Remember to always play an /encore after your audience /claps! Show them you appreciate them. They are armed.
Who hasn’t seen someone do this? There needs to be an appropriate tantrum animation before you pull the mobs and dump the party. Then, since everyone else has been appropriately warned, they have time for a quick /omg or /wtf before they die!
p.s., please add /meow too, kthxbye
