This article is a list of commands available in World of Warcraft. Such commands are commonly called “slash commands” because they require that you use the slash (/) key before typing in the command.

Note: Some commands require a parameter, and some commands have optional parameters. Required parameters are indicated by []s. Optional parameters are indicated by <>s.

Note: It is likely this list is incomplete; there is no known list of every slash command in the game.

Basic Commands Edit

/?, /h, /help
Displays some help about using various commands.
/a, /assist <player>
Assists <player> or your current target by targetting what they are targetting.
/ach
Brings up the Achievement window.
/afk <message>
Toggles Away From Keyboard status. <AFK> status appears next to your name. If you enter a message, players sending you a /whisper will be sent this message in addition to the standard <AFK> message. Note: A player using this command in a Battleground will be automatically removed.
/camp, /logout
Starts the logout progress, after which you will be returned to the Character Select screen. When your character is currently “rested” (in a city or inn), you will be given the option to log out immediately.
/cast, /spell [spell]
Casts the spell or uses the ability [spell]
/combatlog
Toggles writing of the combat log to your hard disk.
/dismount
Dismounts you.
/dnd <message>
Toggles Do Not Disturb status. The <Busy> flag is placed next to the name of a player who is set DND. When DND is set, you cannot receive /whisper messages. A player attempting to send a /whisper will be notified that you have Do Not Disturb set. If you specify a message, they will also be sent that message.
/mountspecial
Your mount will do a special emotion (not all mounts capable to do so).
/equip [item]
Equips the named [item] if it is in your inventory.
/exit, /quit
Starts the logout process, after which World of Warcraft will completely exit. This command always offers the option to quit immediately. Be aware, however, that your character will remain online for the full 20 seconds it takes to log out, even if the window has closed. Be wary of using this in dangerous areas.

Starts automatically following <player> or your current target.
/ins, /inspect <player>

Rolls a random number between <minimum> and <maximum>, including both <minimum> and <maximum>. If only one <number> is given, then the roll will be 1 to <number>. If no numbers are given, then 1 to 100 is used. This number is then displayed to everyone in the same party or raid group as yourself and to everybody within /say range.

/reload
Reload the user interface. May be useful when an addon fails and must be restarted, as you can do this with this command without having to logout.

Chat Commands Edit

These commands are used to say things to other players. Unless otherwise noted, these channels are displayed in your current language. So, for example, if a Night Elf is currently speaking in Darnassian, Human players would not be able to understand them.

/e, /em, /emote, /me [message]
Emotes [message] to all players in the general area, prefaced by the player’s name. The resulting [message] is given as an action, ie “/em does something.” would come across as “Player does something.” Like all methods of communication, /em does not work cross-faction, and members of the opposing faction would only see the phrase “Player makes some strange gestures.”.
/bg [message]
Displays [message] to all other raid members while in a PvP battleground.
/c, /csay [channel] [message]
Sends [message] to all players in [channel]. This does not use your current language. You can also use /# (where # is the channel number) to send a message to [channel].

Displays [message] to all officers in your guild. (You must have the 'Officer Chat Speak' privilege to use this)

/r, /reply [message]

/ra, /raid, /rsay [message]
Displays [message] to all other raid members. While in a PvP battleground, use /bg instead.
/s, /say [message]
Displays [message] to other players in the general area.

Sends the private message [message] to [player]. No other players will see the message.
