How to use the Emotes and Emote Wheel in Diablo 4?

To use emotes, open the action or emote wheel by pressing on the E key if you are using a keyboard or the Up arrow if you are using a controller. You can then use the default emotes on the wheel by selecting them with the mouse or the analog stick.

To change the default emotes on the wheel, open the emote wheel again and select the Customize option. From here, choose which emotes you would like to change with a different emote.
