Gestures are the fundamental communication feature in Elden Ring, especially when players play in Multiplayer mode. Gestures are referred to as Emotes, which are some particular movements or animated actions that players use to drop a message to the other players. They can even be used to leave behind some important notes to consider for the other players. They can be made anywhere at any point in the game. Some of the most common gestures are greetings, applause, waving hands, or even sitting.
These gestures are made by the ghostly version of the player’s character performing the emotes for the other players. They are left behind to guide the companion about locations, direct them in a specific direction, and avoid confusion.
Apart from using them for guiding purposes, these gestures at times can activate certain events, quests, and Boss fights and can even lead the player into a new location in the game. Using Emotes is fun, but players must be cautious about their use.
