This is a reference for the WoW defined slash commands availible for use in the WoW chat window, and as WoW macro commands in a macro. This list describes all of the 'slash' commands as recognized by World of Warcraft. See useful macros and user defined macros for other commands and macros. See slash commands (old) and list of slash commands (old) for the older lists. For full Macro API help, see Macro API.


  • Commands are listed in lower case, however in chat can be upper or lower case.
  • For macros a command is entered on a single line ending with a new-line '\n' character.
  • Emotes list is from FrameXML\GlobalStrings.lua.


  •  ? - command has not been tested or fully confirmed.
  • REMOVED - Removed from WoW, retained here for historical reference.
  • DISABLED - Command still exists, but does not function.
  • DEPRECATED - Is deprecated and should no longer be used.
  • Commands with multiple aliases are listed under the most expanded alias.


This is a WoW Reference, do not add commands from non-Blizzard sources; use User defined macros instead.
