World of Warcraft Console Commands

World of Warcraft console commands

The chat log at the bottom of World of Warcraft’s screen can be used to keep in contact with the world’s players, but it’s also the place to go to if you’re looking to make things happen. You probably already know about emotes, such as /dance, but did you know that there are a whole world of forward slash commands? Start playing more effectively with these World of Warcraft commands.

How do you enter World of Warcraft commands?

It’s really simple to enter commands into World of Warcraft. Just open the chat, and type in any command, prefixed with a forwards-slash. Then tap enter, and see the results in action. Make sure you type in the ‘/’ before any command though: without it, you’ll simply say the command in chat, and everyone else will see it.
