Questions from a WoW fanboi =)Follow

The closer it gets to Sunday the more I want to know about the actual gameplay of WAR.

Today's question is a totally cosmetic one....

In WoW they have /silly, /dance, /laugh, /clap, etc that are actually animated. Each race has a different style dance. Those, and the /train voice emote, are honestly the reason I continued to play WoW thru the gameplay learning curve lol.

Sounds dumb, but coming over from FFXI where 10 macros or 12... can't remember now, would be all you need to use at level 75, in WoW I had over 12 abilities at lv 10 O.O... needless to say this EZmode clicker was confused, but those cosmetic features entertained me enough until I caught on. I still get a kick out of the male Gnome /train emote and their booty smacking dance.

Anyway, WAR have anything like that? Voice emotes or just animated emotes?

Another real fast question. Having played AoC and not liking the figting in that game (click to swing, no auto attack that I found anyway, the different angles you can swing which really did nothing except tick me off lol), is there a auto-swing here? Don't even get me started on the defense shields in AoC T.T

I can't tell you how long I must have just sat there in AoC not attacking the mobs.

Well, just trying to pass time at work, and time until Beta starts. Any answers would be great =D

There are a list of emotes in WAR and I have to admit that this was the first thing I looked for.
Try /katadance for a very cool dance move. There is not actually a "dance" emote as far as I can tell. My guess is they threw in a bogus /dance emote to poke fun at the WoW people. When you try to /dance, it says something like, "Tepetkhet looks like she wants to do something "special" with Aku." When you /special, it just says something like, "Tepetkhet does something special for Aku" which...for my dark elf...ended up being a faint smile. hahaha

War Goblins are 100x funnier than WoW Gnomes (or goblins for that matter).

See thread "How I became a Squig Herder" for proof. :P

Goblin /special - Clutching at their eye, a giant plume of what one would assume is their blood, comes out, and they frantically spin around on the ground.

Orc /special - Kinda looks like they're putting on deoderant.

Human /special - Sock Puppets.

Chaos /special - Floating up above the ground, they wait for a moment, and do a backflip before landing gently back on the ground.


Combat is Auto Attack, just like WoW.

The orc is 'miming' grabbing someone in a headlock and punching him in the face.

Wheeew, thanks for the responses. Just petty, dumb questions, but I'm really hoping this will be the next MMO I stick with. FFXI --> WoW --> WAR? could be.

Thank God for for the auto-attacking. In WoW raids my mouse gets clicked enough lol, don't want another AoC clicking marathon.

Welp, see ye guys Sunday!

Oh btw the sock puppets is going to make me roll one of that race now :/ There goes my gameplan of Chosen --> Maraurder leveling.

You don't have to click in AoC? I thought the shields were pretty cool btw, you had to actually think about which combos to use because you wanted the final attack to strike non shielded side. Combat was awesome in AoC I found, just the game lacked content and polish at higher levels.

Anyway I'm excited to play WAR as well, I just found it funny how we had differing outlooks on the combat system in Conan. I found it pretty awesome and brutal, though melee classes should have turned off "auto face enemy" so that you could position yourself to strike everyone better. I really like the idea of "AOE" on everything, even as a melee class.
