How to Get the Sway Emote in Lost Ark

What is the Sway Emote?

The Sway Emote is 1 of 32 Emotes you can acquire and collect in Lost Ark. Emotes are unique animations that you can use to convey various emotions, reactions, and actions in Lost Ark.

Sway gives your character the ability to dance the cha-cha dance style in-game. You can even use the Sway Emote with other players and start a synchronized mob dance in most areas of the game.

How to get the Sway Emote

You can get the Sway Emote by completing the Becoming an Idol Quest on Peyto Island. Sail to Peyto, then look for the NPC Danidani on the main deck to start the quest.

You will need the Cheer Emote to complete this quest, as it starts with you cheering for Danidani using the Cheer Emote. The Clap Emote is also a requirement for this quest since you’ll need to applaud the Mokokos for their performance.

After you Cheer and Clap to the Mokokos, look for Producer Hermes near a table on the right side of the stage. Talk to him and accept his invitation for an audition, where you will use the Dance Emote within the orange circle to complete Producer Hermes’ request.

When you complete the Dance, talk to Producer Hermes again to complete the Becoming an Idol quest and receive various rewards, including the Emote: Sway book.
