I've become a big fan of emoting. I stuck with only the standard emotes for a long time, until I learned that you can /em anything. Anything! Our king of emotes is our gnome mage Nkm, pictured here with Buns. I made them stand for a pic because they are so freakin' cute.
Anyways, here's an emote "conversation" from a while back with Nkm when we were waiting to start a raid run and I had my Seb (Magical Crawdad out):
Nkm is sad because he really hates fishing and he'll never be able to get the Magical Crawdad and then he won't be able to get the 75 pets achievement
Keredria is thinking that is a long ass emote
Seriously though, Nkm really has the funniest emotes, which I think I expressed as an emote. And just as an update, he did get the Magical Crawdad. :)
However, Nkm is not the only emoter in the guild. Our rogue Terrondris is a big emoter when he isn't busy teabagging anyone who has died (which is another post all together). One emote that he has somehow reserved strictly for me (I'm touched T, just touched) is:
Terrondris pats Keredria's bedonkadonk
Its funny because I was in IF one day and a lower level stranger who I did not know at all emoted patting or pinching my bedonkadonk! I immediately knew that it was one of T's alts and whispered him.
Another reason that I love emoting is that it allows you to talk across factions. When I encounter asshat Hordies, I am a big emoter. But when I run across Horde who has helped me in some way, or waited their turn to finish some daily, I emote thanks to them as well.
Now the other day when the fishing daily was to get the Terrorfish in Wintergrasp, I get there to see this:
Whoa, holy crap! I've never seen a concentration of so many fishers outside of the fishing tournament. Anyways, we're all working on getting our fish, when I notice that a Horde rogue (I forget his name) was stealthing around flagged. He was kind of going from person to person, standing behind them and emoting a number of things. I'm not sure if he was trying to start something or what. But it seemed that everyone else was just ignoring him. However when he came to me:
Keredria wonders why "Hordie rogue" has nothing better to do
"Hordie rogue" laughs.
"Hordie rogue" agrees.
"Hordie rogue" wishes Keredria luck and bids Keredria farewell!
