Spellicon D.png MISSING INFO! Please expand the content.


The following is a list of commands that can be used in game.

The following come from the Kunark manual and may not cover all the commands available in P99. Feel free to add more as found.

General Commands


Away From Keyboard. When activated, all /tells sent to you auto-respond with the message you provide. If no message is specified, you will replay with the default reply of "Sorry, I am A.F.K (Away From Keyboard) right now."


/afk <message> (*message is optional*)


Makes you anonymous in /who and /who all, preventing other players from seeing your class, level, current location and guild.


/anon (toggle)

/a (toggle)


If you target a character who is engaged in combat, the /assist command automatically targets for you whoever that character is fighting at the moment and puts you in auto-attack mode (this can be changed in options.) This can be very useful in heavy combat.To be most effective, it is best to set this as a macro.


/assist (with a character targeted)

/assist <name> (doesn't require a target)

/assist <ON/OFF> - Toggles the autoattack function associated with the /assist function. The default of ON turns on your autoattack when you use /assist. If you type /assist off then autoattack will not start when you use /assist. This is one case where you must use the parameters on and off for this to work.


/attack <ON/OFF> - Toggles in and out of attack mode. This will put you in attack mode even if nothing is targeted. Be careful not to use this when near NPC's that you have targeted. By default, this is set to the "a" key. Care should also be taken when you are near an NPC that you have targeted not to hit the "a" key, as this may cause you to attack the NPC.


/attack on

/attack off

These are best used in macros with attack on auto-assist toggled off.


Allows you to broadcast items you wish to buy or sell. /auction is zone-wide. It is recommended that you only use /auction for buying and selling items, and use /ooc for anything unrelated to buying and selling.


/auction <text>


Automatically drops an item from your cursor to your inventory. If you have no space for it, it will drop to the ground




Automatically splits any coin loot you get from a corpse with the rest of your group. Each member that is looting must have this enabled to split all coin loot.




Opens a page in your spellbook. Page 1 to 50.


/book [1-50]


Must be sitting, camps your character to character screen.




Shows current bind location (zone).





Clears the current chat window.




Gives the indicated player permission to drag your corpse.


/consent <name>


Gives vital statistics of a targeted PC or NPC, including their level in relation to yours and your faction standing.


/con or /consider

How to interpret a consider message

Con color

  • If your target is green, they are considerably lower than your level. You will not get experience for killing a green NPC.
  • If your target is light blue, they are barely high enough to pose a challenge. You will get a small amount of exp.
  • If your target is blue, they are lower level than you, but still good for exp.
  • If your target is white, they are the same level as you.
  • If your target is yellow, they are 1-2 levels above you.
  • If your target is red, they are 3 or more levels above you.

Faction Standing

See also: Faction
  • If your target "scowls at you, ready to attack," you have very bad faction with the NPC and they will attack you on sight.
  • If your target "glares at you threateningly," you have bad faction with the NPC and they will attack you on sight.
  • If your target "glowers at you dubiously," they don't like you but won't attack. Dubious merchants will refuse to sell to you. You may not be able to begin quests.
  • If your target "looks your way apprehensively," they don't like you somewhat and won't attack. You may not be able to begin quests.
  • If your target "regards you indifferently," they neither like nor hate you.
  • If your target "judges you amiably," then you have good faction with the target.
  • If your target "kindly considers you," then you have very good faction with them.
  • If your target "views you warmly," then you have great faction with them.
  • If the target "regards you as an ally," then you have extremely great faction with them.


Summons the character's corpse within a 50' radius of the character.




Allows you to decline a Duel.




Allows you to remove a players ability to drag your corpse.


/deny <Player Name>


Executes an Ability. 1 2 3 4 5 6


/doability 2 (*Sense Heading will execute if in #2 position*)


Challenges the targeted PC to a duel. To accept, type /d with yourself targeted as well. A duel is in effect until one "dies" (is knocked unconscious) or flees the zone.


/duel or /d


Increases the font size of a window from 0-5. (0 = smallest)


/chatfontsize [0-5]



In general, the result is a message to all nearby characters saying "<your name> <text>." For example, if Soandso types /em falls asleep, the resulting message will be: Soandso falls asleep. However, it's more common to use a predefined emote, such as /clap or /dance.


/em <text>, /e <text>, or :<text>


Forces your character to go link-dead and fully exits EverQuest.



See also: /q

NOTE: Your character remains in-game for ~1 minute after /exiting out. You will not be able to log back on to the same server, until the character is "logged out".


Takes you to the feedback /comments screen. Not in use on p1999, use the forums.




Brings up the menu for filtering text boxes.




When you use this command while targeting another player in your group, you will automatically follow the targeted character.

WARNING: Be careful using this around ledges, lava, etc. You'll probably regret it.




Without parameters: Lists the characters on your friend's list.

With a name: Adds character to your friend's list.



/friend <name>


Sends the text to everyone in your group.


/gsay <text> or /g <text>


Opens the window to play the mini-game "Gems". It is a puzzle game much like Tetris.


Short for guildsay, this sends a text to everyone in your guild.

The following is a list of guild commands:

  • /guilddelete
  • /guildinvite o (For guild leaders to create officers)
  • /guildinvite
  • /guildleader
  • /guildpeace
  • /guildremove
  • /guildsay
  • /guildstatus (checks target's guild)
  • /guildwar
  • /guildmotd


Creates a macro to be placed on one of your hotkeys. Edit it by right-clicking it (you can also right-click your Social presets, such as Afk and Anon).


/hotbutton macroname


Filters all communications from the ignored player. The ignored player can see the ignorers messages.


/ignore playername


To get your coordinate location in your current zone, type "/loc" or simply "/l". The resulting set of numbers is in the form of (y, x, z).

  • y: North (positive) and South (negative)
  • x: West (positive) and East (negative)
  • z: Up (positive) and Down (negative)

Note: The z coordinate often won't be needed, and is therefore not used in many cases.

Example: If you are at (200, 500) and you need to get to (-1300, 400), you must travel South and slightly to the East.




Opens the loot window for the targeted corpse.


Format: /mp3 { add <filename.mp3 or .m3u> | play [#] | pause | count | list | clear [#] | shuffle | ordered }

Example: /mp3 add C:\Users\jglenn\Music\Pink Floyd\The Dark Side of the Moon\05 Money.mp3


This command opens up a window where you can take notes. The notes are saved even when you log off.


Speaks in the "Out of Character" (OOC) channel. OOC is typically used for chat that is non-game related (like chatting with your fellow adventurers), but this isn't always strictly enforced. OOC is zone-wide. Note that you can also set your chat window to default to speak in this channel, in which case you don't need the /ooc but can just start typing.


/ooc EQ is the best eva! <Will send a message to the entire zone in the OOC channel saying "EQ is the best eva!">

/ooc 30 War LFG <Will send a message to the entire zone in the OOC channel saying "30 War LFG">

To use type, /outputfile inventory <char name>.txt or /outputfile spellbook <char name>.txt

  • Guild*
  • Guildbank*
  • Raid*
  • Spellbook
  • Inventory

Of coarse replace <char name> with your character's name so that you can find the file better. The file will be located in your Everquest main folder on your computer as <Charactername>.txt. You will find a in the text document a list of all items that character has in his inventory as well as bank; or if you used the spellbook switch a list of all spells the character has mem'ed in the spellbook.
