List of Commands

This section is largely incomplete and is in need of detailing.

Text Commands

Entering a text command starting with the / (forward slash) key allows players to change equipment, use abilities, perform emotes and various other actions. Additional directions such as subcommands and placeholders can be added to commands for even greater customization, such as specifying targets, toggling functions on and off, and so on. The additional directions should follow the main command, separated by a space.
