So, many will choose to personalize their character but substituting the default 'laugh' for a laugh of their own to fit their individual character, using 'tmote laughs his own way'.
But as this uses balance, it's discouraging when you want to laugh while following someone or laugh during combat or other skill use.
Simple recommendation is a handful of changeable emotes. The common ones that are altered: laugh, smile, bow, etc.
So a person can SETEMOTE SMILE emote gives a warm, toothy smile
enabling them to use that one off balance.
I know something related was done as an auction in the past but this is with upcoming changes to the emote system in mind.
Obviously no "emote hurls a tarot card with the image of the Hanged Man on it at you. As it reaches you, a huge mass of rope bursts out of it, entrapping and hindering you." If that happens it's shrubbable like the abuse of any other system. Basically suggesting facilitating personalized emoting into the offbalance emotes to replace them somehow.
