/assist Target If you target a player who is engaged in combat, the /assist command will automatically target for you whoever that player is fighting at the moment. This can be very useful in heavy combat. You may want to set this as a Social and move it to your hot keys.
/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.

/dynamiclights On/Off When on, this command enables players to see specially rendered lighting. This command is most useful when the player is holding, or has a light source with them, such as a torch. Turn this command to off if you notice low frame rate.
/emote (text) or /em or : (text) or /e emotes the text. This is used to add fun to the game. For example, after a big battle, you can type /emote cleans the gore off his sword. Everyone around you will see "AllaKhazam cleans the gore off his sword." More people should use this command.
/exit Exits the game immediately and makes your character go linkdead (which means it is still there for a minute or so and can be attacked). Really only for emergency uses, such as when the boss walks into your office.

A /friend by itself will list the players in your friends list.

Keep in mind that the all and the allbutgroup options will hide NPC corpses. Your own corpse is never hidden. The default is none.

/loc or /I You may want to put this command in your hot keys so that you can use it when you are about to die. Then you only have to scroll back up to see where your corpse is located. You can also use /loc to keep track of important locations within a zone or to coordinate positions with a friend. It gives you an X-Y set of coordinates of where you are or where the object you are targeting is. It works as follows: X. This is your North/South direction. The higher the number, the further North you are, and the lower the number the further South you are. Y. This is your East/West direction. The higher the number, the further West you are, and the lower the number, the further East you are. If you're trying to track down something and you have the coordinates but don't want to deal with the North/East/South/West thing, all you have to do is start walking around while rapidly using the /loc command and see the difference in x,y while you walk in different directions. If your current x is higher than the x you're trying to find, change directions until x starts to get smaller. If you keep using /loc you should narrow in on an x,y location very quickly. Remember to be in the same zone though.
/log On/Off turns on the feature that copies your log to a text file in your EQ directory.
/loot loots a corpse which is located in shallow water or lava, keeping you from having to go in yourself.

/mousespeed 0-3 Changes the mouse travel speed across the monitor. 3 is the maximum setting (the higher the number the faster the mouse moves). Don't set this above 3. Your mouse will move too quickly and you will probably not be able to play.

/netstats or /n Displays network statistics : ping times, packet loss.
