/emote revisited

Quite a long time ago, there was a discussion about adding new emotes to WOW. There was much demand for ‘teabag‘ – So I suspect Blizzard blew the idea off. I on the other hand kept thinking about it. Here are a few of my ideas:

  1. Reading Map. When ever a player is viewing their map, their toon would be holding up a map. Each race could have their own variation. You could have one race holding an old moldy scape of paper, while another might hold it upside down. You get the idea. Then parties would be able to see when some one’s attention was distracted and cover her in a fight. Or…PvP players would know who wants paying attention. You could even have feints where people put up transparent maps on their screen and wait for an ambush. It could be a lot of fun.
  2. Checking Journal. Similar to maps but for all the other junk in the UI. Quest logs, Guild screens, Professional skills. The animation might be anything from the toon digging through a backpack to pulling out a writing desk to make notes. They could even have class specific animations. Mages could scribble with floating paper and glowing ink.
