Emotes

Introduction

Emotes are animations that players have the ability to perform. They can be used for entertainment, during clue scrolls and even as a way of communicating with other players.

Most emotes can be accessed from the emotes interface which can be found in a tab where the public and private chat tabs are. Emotes that have been unlocked will appear in colour and those that are locked will appear faded out. Not all emotes will appear in this interface. Items that have special emotes will appear as right click options for the item either in the inventory or in the worn items interface.

Default Emotes

Default emotes are unlocked upon creating a RuneScape account. They are free to use by any player.
