There are a variety of text commands that one can use ingame to perform certain tasks. These are all preceded by a "/" and are typed into the text box like dialogue. The various different type of text commands can be broken down into a few categories.


An emote is a command used by the player to express emotion and add a little flavor to his/her dialogue. There are two types of emotes.

  1. Built-in emote commands, such as smile or salute.
    Typing in a built-in emote with the word "motion" after it will perform the emote without putting text into the chat log.
    Typing a built-in emote with the word "text" after it will display the text in the chat log without performing the motion.
  2. Typing /em followed by text will do a custom emote without animation.
    Example: /em points at a large bird in the sky.
    You would see this: <Name> points at a large bird in the sky.
/amazed /angry /bell (/bellsw) /blush /bow /cheer /clap /comfort /cry /dance
/dance1 /dance2 /dance3 /dance4 /disgusted /doubt /doze /farewell /fume /goodbye
/grin /huh /hurray /joy /jump /kneel /laugh /muted /no /nod
/panic /point /poke /praise /psych /salute /shocked /sigh /sit /slap
/smile /stagger /stare /sulk /surprised /think /toss /upset /wave /welcome

Job-Specific Emotes

Job-specific emotes were made available with the December 06, 2010 update. In order to use these emotes, you must undertake a Trial of the Magians from one of the Magian Moogles in Ru'Lude Gardens (H-5). Once the respective trial is completed, the job-specific emote can be performed using the /jobemote command.

  • Items can be collected before or during the undertaking of the quest.
  • You do not need to be on the job in question to undertake or complete the quest for that job-specific emote.

Note: The "motion" keyword does not work with /jobemote. Typing in /jobemote with the word "motion" after it will still perform the emote, but unlike with the other "/emote motion" commands, it will still display the normal chat log text associated with that emote.

For specifics on unlocking each job emote, refer to the Trial of the Magians: Emote Trial Categories.
