My current favorite unconventional use for an existing emote is to use the first part of the /graffiti emote to pet horses. Are there any which you’ve found yourself or have seen other players using?
Plenty! I love posing my character for screenshots using emotes. It’s all about positioning and timing.
Don’t want to screenie-spam, but I can describe a few that immediately come to mind:
- /preach when standing between two people to simulate an encouraging pat on both their shoulders
- /graffiti with a rifle out for the classic “snapshots from the front line” pose
- /shy with a sword out to simulate inspecting the blade
- /facepalm in front of a flower box for an especially contemplative, playing-with-flowers pose
As with Cordite’s examples, using the last frames of the /showfist emote, you get a real nice ‘What?’ pose.
