Emotes allow players to express emotions during the game. Bow to a friendly player or wave to say goodbye to a comrade. Players can express emotions such as joy, anger, and sadness through character motions. You can enjoy the game alone, but as you progress in your adventures in Vana’diel, many powerful monsters await you. You will need a group of allies if you want to survive. A party can hold a maximum of 6 players, but some monsters are too powerful for a single party to defeat. Alliances, consisting of a maximum of 3 parties, or 18 players, can be formed to battle such powerful foes. These are the basic ways of communication in Final Fantasy XI. All of these can be performed by first typing “/” (without quotations) and then the action.
