A similar category (jussive) is used for both optative and hortative statements.

Adejori Mood is indicated by clitics that attached to the first word in the sentence (which is not always the verb), thus even though there are two optative moods, one for wishing ill on others and the other for just wishing (usually more positive things), they are indicated through clitics and therefore are not inflections of the verb.
Shokitin There does exist an optative mood, which shares an auxiliary verb with the hortative mood.
