Further Commands for Chat and Macros

When speaking, you can use a series of "% codes" that expand into various pieces of information. These are also useful when creating macros. Note that they are case sensitive: using lower case will return a lower-case result (%O will return Him, %o will return him). Race (race name or "Unknown") and gender ("Male," "Female," "Neuter") results are always capitalized.

Emotes are character actions within the game. Many of them are acted out physically by your character, and some have accompanying audio. All of them display a text line within your chat window. If a target is selected, the emotes will be addressed to your current target. If no target is selected, they will be generic actions.
