I have a suggestion... and it's not yet been made, but I was very curious about it, since our characters' faces are so expressive...

Moods that logically tie into the emote. When I make my character laugh, his body is incredibly expressive... but his face never moves. It feels cumbersome to me to have to spam the emote channel with /mood cheery, /laugh, /mood calm... or whatever combination. For emotes like /taunt or /cry I can see not changing the face because there could be a range of moods there... moods the character would probably already be IN. But I'm sorry, I just don't see a character laughing without this affecting the face.

(A side note... the vocalizations also don't work for that emote, so if this is just something bugged on my side, please let me know. I have gotten most other voiced emotes to work and have noticed that my character's face moves and speaks, but even though people on the forums say /laugh is supposed to be voiced, I don't hear it.)

/wookiee - Wookie laugh

/showoff - different class different skill Smugglers do a cool coin toss and gun spin and shoot during recovery would love that as an emote. Jedi could do some action lightsaber trick. Troopers shoot in the air. etc.

/dagger - dagger toss spins and throws several daggers why? for fun.

/pirate - puts an eye patch on and says "Ahoy matey"

These were in Pirates of The Caribbean Online which is no more so it isn't really stealing. They ended it.
I know some ladies who would like /nails where they stand one hand on hip and hold the other out and bring it back in and repeat checking their nails.

/glare - hands on hips forward stance, angry face, head shaking back and forth left to right.

/coin - coin flip repeats

/sleep - character hunches over and drops head - sleeping while standing - avoids issues with lying down. Keeping it Teen. Add on - Making a snoring sound for a few secs would be hysterical.

/bark - <character name> barks like a dog.
/meow - <character name> meows like a cat.
/howl - <character name> howls at the moon.

/polish players will take out their weapon of choice and proceed to clean/polish it, finish off with a short test.

/construct <weapon> take apart of rebuilds weapon of choice. For lightsabers would require a meditation (similar to jk reset animation) to disassemble and reassemble the hitls. Others can rebuild another weapon (blaster pistol for most).

I would really love to see 'stances', so our characters are not just standing in one a boring and bland way.

Something like a shoulder leanm hands on hips arms crossed over the chest, or even a nice hands behind the back military stance, for all us professional people. Almost like a channelled emote that keeps the character in that position until they move.

I hope that makes sense. It isn't an emote in a sense, but I feel like it could put a lot of life and emotion into a character.

I don't know if this has already been said but I desperately want the Meditate emote to have a n action associated with it. Maybe have the character sit down with his legs crossed or go into the position that Introspection (Jedi Knight healing trance) puts you in. It would be enormously appreciated.

Can we please have some trainer emotes. The animations like the various class trainers do? Also the cracking knuckles/savor moment thing the Inquisitor does with both hands.

/prone - An emote to put characters into the prone, sort of like an alternative to /kneel where your weapon is put away and concealed. This would probably be well liked amongst role-players.

/playdead - An emote where your character clenches his chest as though acting and then falls to the ground. Your character then continues to lay there until the player attempts to move or conduct any other action.

/rest - An emote based on the military position of Parade Rest, as seen in various cut scenes of the game, in which the character folds his/her hands behind their back and spreads their feet to shoulder width apart.

Or even just stances as suggested, something to give characters an alternative way to stand. Perhaps even something with their hands on their hips, hands in their pockets, or some of the ones suggested above. Thanks for reading!

I would love to see some class specific emotes, they could be bound to class just like some gear is. Picture hovering in a zen-like meditative pose or "force-juggling" rocks or cubes as a jedi consular. Or, practicing lightsaber techniques as a jedi knight. Bounty Hunters could be scanning the galactic media for their next target kinda like the operative rest function. Or the BH could summon several tiny scout droids like Darth Maul did in SW1 then send them off. Troopers could have some military emotes like checking or cleaning gear, talking on a headset, counting ammunition. Sith warrior could have a "force choke companion" as someone mentioned elsewhere. Smugglers could "/play dejarik" or "/count credits". Sith Inquisitor could hold out his hands and shoot lightning between them in a show of dark power. They could shock their companion with torturous lightning to remind them who's boss. Etc etc
