How to do a Silent Emote in FFXI (Final Fantasy XI)

Released in 2003 for the PC, Final Fantasy XI was the first title in the franchise to make its entry in the online space as a massively multiplayer online role-playing game [MMORPG]. The game was heavily inspired by Blizzard’s World of WarCraft, but it failed to come close to making the same impact as the latter.

Even though the experience offered by Final Fantasy XI was a forgettable one, there were still a few very interesting things incorporated in the game, one of which was the emote feature. By entering specific commands, a player could make his character perform certain actions. One of the many emotes popular among players was that of silent. The command for performing the silent emote is quite simple.

    The first thing that you need to do is to ensure that you have Final Fantasy XI installed on your computer. If you do not have the game on your system, you can visit your nearest video game shop and get a copy of the game from there, or you can download the game from the Internet. Try not to get your hands on a pirated version of the game, as that is considered theft and therefore an offence. Once you have the game with you, install it on your computer. Remember to check the minimum requirements to play the game and if your computer specifications meet the minimum requirements.
