World of Warcraft Cheat Sheet

World of Warcraft may not be a web design, development or marketing topic, but that doesn't mean I don't need a cheat sheet for it. I've just started playing and can't remember all the slash commands and shortcut keys, so this is a simple quick reference for just that.

The World of Warcraft cheat sheet is designed to be printed on an A4 sheet of paper and live by a WoWer's desk, to make life a bit easier. A description of what is on the cheat sheet follows, or if you are impatient, you can go straight to the full size World of Warcraft cheat sheet.

I am a complete noob (I hate that word, but when in Rome ...) when it comes to World of Warcraft, so please be aware that while this is useful to those starting out (or with bad memories) it may not be so suitable for the extremely experienced.


Thumbnail highlighting emotes section. You can moo in World of Warcraft. That's just fantastic. How many other games can you moo in? Not a lot. But there is more - and this section lists those commands. Waving, greeting, insulting, farting and mooing are all here. Many of the commands have duplicates, so those duplicates have been removed for reasons of space (as you can see, there wasn't much room to play with).

Slash Commands

Thumbnail highlighting slash commands sections. Slash commands are important in World of Warcraft (I hear), especially if you want to communicate with other players (and you really should if you aren't yet). These sections list the more useful slash commands, including guild commands, chat commands and more.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Thumbnail highlighting keyboard shortcuts. Movement, targetting and panel display are all controlled with keyboard shortcuts (and mouse, but I get the distinct impression nobody actually uses the mouse for that). As someone who has been playing World of Warcraft since Saturday (and still managed to rack up 14 hours of gametime - is this game going to ruin my life like so many others before?), I can't remember all the shortcuts just yet, so I find it useful to have a quick list of the more important ones handy. And that is what this section is for.


So now that you know what it does, please feel free to print out the World of Warcraft cheat sheet:

And finally, if you like the cheat sheets, and want to say thanks, please consider buying me something from my Amazon Wishlist. Thankyou very much to those who have already hunted it down and sent me something nice - I'm very grateful!

Please note: If you wish to link to the World of Warcraft cheat sheet from elsewhere, please link to this page so others find the description, rather than linking directly to the sheet.
