Pet emotes

Disclaimer – these are not neutral emotes, They typically are assigned to a particular type of pet so what you find below will be a real mish-mash of emotes. I also usually assign a gender to my pet and design my custom pet emotes around that. In addition each pet has a particular personality and apperance that I try to convey… and on top of all that I have a twisted sense of humour and my own unique take on the english language.

  1. Role play a bit and decide what your pets personality is like.
  2. Think about the types of actions such a pet would make
  3. Keep it simple and classic so peeps don’t bite your head off for “wall of text” syndrome
  4. Make puns, even terrible puns are funny O_O

I load these into the pet emote addon’s editor because that is much easier than typing them everytime!

This mish mash comes from the following pet collection

  • A very serious young wolf (protector of a low level teenaged hunter)
  • A staid lady warpstalker with a lot of battle experience
  • A jolly bear
  • A snotty bouncy scorpion
  • An emo superior black cat
  • A sadistic evil minded cunning white cat

    Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    Yeah… i pulled a lot of content off my old wordpress hunter blog (great green Hunter) and the pictures are all over the shop … sigh. Some day I’ll have to back track through all these posts (years of posts) and fix it all woe.

    Thanks for sharing your pet motes! This is one of my favourite addons!

    My hard disk crashed and I had to reinstall WoW and addons. To my dismay, the link to the editor is no longer available .

    I would appreciate if anyone could email me a copy of the editor if it’s still usable for the latest version of pet emote. p9535422(a)

    Thank you!

    Try this webpage: (its a fan update of the old addon from Ammunition Studios and the download included the editor when i checked it 🙂

  5. Stormageon says:

    Thanks for the link! I extracted the executable file from the zip file. Unfortunately, the Editor is not compatible with the latest version of Pet Emote v1.8.1. 😦

    hmmm i am pretty sure before the editor came out (and peeps on MACs who could never use it) what we used to do was open the custom-emotes.lau in notepad (or note pad ++ I guess now its available it may work better) and edit text manually. Big Bear Butt had a post on how he did this in notepad ++ [ ]- its time consuming but I always thought it was worth it back in the day.
