Emotes in Diablo 4 offer a welcome contrast to the intense battle sequences against grotesque monsters, and the grim setting of the Sanctuary. On the flip side, they pose a serious benefit too – completing puzzles and ticking off quests.

Whether you’re celebrating a hard-earned victory against hordes of demons or racking up some extra XP, emotes are a vital component of Diablo 4 – you’ll also need them to complete certain quests that require you to perform a certain action such as shouting a word or cheer.

For a full breakdown of how to do this, follow our simple instructions:

  1. During your Diablo 4 gameplay, press Up on a controller or the default key of E on PC.
  2. We now recommend customizing either your left or right wheel.
  3. The left wheel has pre-assigned emotes ready to go, or you can meddle with them.
  4. To do so, click Customize on the wheel selection menu.
  5. Now, drag and drop the emote of your choice into the designated slot that you desire.
  6. Once you’ve done that, the emote will be permanently lodged in this position and ready to go wherever you select it from its location on the selected access wheel!

Emoting in Diablo 4 adds an unexpected but welcome twist to the franchise’s traditional formula, introducing a touch of light-hearted interaction amidst the somber scenery and heart-stopping battles.
