Role-Playing

14 Feb 2014 Forum Guidelines - Please Read Welcome to the World of Warcraft discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of World of Warcraft with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the World of Warcraft community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Reporting You can quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The World of Warcraft forums are for discussion of topics directly related to World of Warcraft The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to World of Warcraft, Battle.net or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Takralus2 14 Feb 2014

2h What would you do with the above poster? #17 "If you immediately know the candle light is fire then the meal was cooked a long time ago." Meng would observe the elf, reaching toward the other monks floaty thing, sitting in the background offering nothing but Zen Koans. (Last one was full, this was my post. don't forget to take into account the other posts in it.) https://imgur.com/a/iNQo0Xinmeng54 2h
3h Technology how technologically advanced are the people of Azeroth do they have phones or TV because in the engineering you can make a wormhole. So i'm kinda confused cuz the game is set medievalist period and we see goblins with cars,I know is a fictional mmorpg game but i'm just wondering. how does this fit lore-wise and in mostly when role playing.Erah7 3h
3h What would your character say to the above poster? #23 Awwww yee. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBgnxDNdNmQ Oh wait, wrong thread! Well, we might get it on ... who knows? >8OCathríon273 3h
3h Would you date the person above you? #39 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd6dtkuKvao ... well, there have been a lot of anthropomorphic types in the threads lately, and I'm going to use any excuse to make Motörhead refrences!Cathríon204 3h
4h About DH weapons IC I know how all Demon Hunter's equip warglaives but i was wondering if they could wear a shield IC and equip a sword on the other hand. I observed that equiping double warglaives make them offensive in combat. However, my character is not that agressive to use warglaives. Personally, i don't think there's any disadvantages for equipping a shield and a sword. I also don't think there is anything lore-wise or RP-wise to prevent Demon Hunters to equip them. I know how -most- of the Demon Hunters are dedicated to kill and devour demons but my character isn't that much of offensive and bloodthirsty since she gets enough souls on Argus. Thank you all for reading and answers. It would make the RP interesting and combats less deadly for the non-agressive characters.Theliyell6 4h
4h Cross Race Breeding? Just wanna ask, what races can breed with each other because I heared that only titan races can breed with each other but than elfs can breed with humans . Elfs aren't made by the titans so I'm not sure If It got retconed or not?Drekos21 4h
6h The /dab Emote You know the dabbing that became mainstream nowadays. Why Blizzard who gets referrence and adds into WoW did not add this new animation. Just think about it, your character bends its own head to the right down, covering its head with its righ arm and then left arm is being rised at 45 degree of slope. Please blizz, I wanna /dab when I achieve something good at the game.Algonquin31 6h
8h Transmogrification troubles. Erah thought I was a Dark Ranger. I guess my Xmog is kinda moody. But Tiramisu here is a very optimistic elf, a farstrider no less! I'm no expert on elves, or what they should look like, in fact, excluding my Demon Hunter, this is my only blood elf, I wanted to use the bow because of the quiver, and the shoulders because they are one of my favourites. https://imgur.com/a/yE2hX Is my old Xmog, Dark and broody I suppose, I just love the shoulders. So I matched with them, the tabard is Warsong, I know, it's just the only thing I had that matched it. https://imgur.com/a/JDRc4 I tried to make a shiny happy version, even got the same shoulders near enough. I'm very err... vain? Obsessed? Can't remember the word I wanted. I care a lot about my Xmogs and try to be matching but unique, so if someone doesn't like one, or thinks I look like something I'm definitely not trying to be, I endeavour to fix it. And also worry... So, What are your thoughts? Is it better now? Worse? Any advice on improvements? Edit: I even got a new pet just to match the new set. (New set to match the new Ra?)Taramis0 8h
10h General RP Chat #41: Puns, we got them! -Restacks a pile of papers while flashing a brilliant smile- Welcome to General RP Chat news and I'm your host Corny. Earlier this day we had some grave news, when some were talking about death knights. The topic of weird changes to quest rewards was also brought up and a little chat about classes. Next up: Do undead actually want brains? Or is it just a misunderstanding and they are looking for someone named Brian? Later on the weather: Is the cold front here to stay? This is Corny with the news, wishing you all a lovely day.Cornelicus222 10h
2d MRP trouble in 7.3? I got the "Your addon is out of date" message when 7.3 came along, so I disabled it. Found MRP for 7.3 and unzipped it in the same folder as before. In-game I have the option to disable/enable MRP, but I get no MRP tab in my character window, and I see no MRP signs on other players. Anyone else have this problem? Or know how I can fix it?Johnmore10 2d
2d Can't RP Hi, I've read a bit about RP and it looked fun so I transferred my Gnome onto the highest pop (that I could tell) RP server and set up MyRoleplay. I've been wandering around major cities, brewfest etc, and I'd say 80% of people don't have an RP addon and those that do were generally out of character. I feel anxious starting an RP when there are so many non RPers around that will probably take the mick. I've also asked in General and Trade chat a few times if there were any RP guilds recruiting and I haven't had a single response. Am I doing something wrong? EDIT: Had a few people in trade chat make fun of me when I say LF RP guild.Grindlegrep11 2d
2d Best place to brood Ok guys, it occured to me as I was standing atop the Nelf tunnel of Warsong Gulch, peering back at the third and final horde flag to be ferried across the battlefield, that World of Warcraft has some truely epic landscapes. The view the supporting beam gave me was of the entire field of battle, and beyond that the whole of Warsong Hold. As I stood there, wondering why on earth my team were fighting mid, I realised I was basically Batman. Dark and brooding, stood perfectly motionless, with a clarity and dignity unmatched, I wondered where the best places were to just take in the Warcraft atmosphere?Aeronwen10 2d
2d Selling Chan's Imperial Robes I've been told this is a very rare and saught after tmog that Roleplayers would appreciate most. I am on Azjol-Nerub server, Looking for 120k http://www.wowhead.com/item=17050/chans-imperial-robesShaqiri0 2d
2d How would you get killed by the above poster? #2 We all can't die dead enough. @ Death Shatter his lantern while attacking him, decanting every single spirit collected. This causes them to swirl around and form a soulnado to appear which draws Cathríon in and tears her apart.Cathríon93 2d
3d What meal would you cook for the above poster? The chef is ill, and you're the first person they grab! You look out to the first person at the table, no time to see what they've ordered! Just cook them whatever... or poison them? Are you so craven and cruel?! Or maybe you will look at them and guess what kind of meal they like? Whatever you're making, you better hurry, they look hungry! I like making forum games, testing the water, maybe they will catch on, maybe not, no harm in finding out right? After spending a few hours bored waiting in the hospital, I came up with some ideas! Ling sits down at a table, only to see the waiter has run off "Err, hello? How do I order?" She sees someone being dragged into the kitchen, she decided to wait, and see what happens.Lingqiao6 3d
3d Let's make it an interview #2 First thread got full so it's time to continue! (Thanks Cal for leting me post this \o/ ) So how does this work? It's simple you answer the interviewer's question from the post before you in character and when you have done that you choose the next question the interviewer ask for the next person to answer! Like the question is, what's your favourite colour? Bob the Guard: "Periwinkle, just like my wife's eyes." then Bob makes the interviewer's next question ooc, simple! So ...Interviewer460 3d
3d What would you do in the dreams of the poster above? So, this is a little something that was inspired by Rizzo in the 'What would you say to the character above' thread x3 Basically, post what your character would do if they were in the dreams of the character above them. Go!Vegoras371 3d
3d Night Elf Backgrounds Hey there, I am wanting to try roleplaying in WoW after enjoying it in D&D and I was wondering what kind of history is seen as acceptable for a Night Elf warrior? I was thinking a criminal/mercenary that is now wanting to become a sentinel but is this pushing the boundaries? Would Night Elven society accept sentinels being former criminals? Would a better option be a sentinel that became a mercenary? Thanks for reading this :)Syraenia4 3d
3d What would the character above you drop? #1 Shamelessly stealing this from the General Chat because I thought it would be a funny (And hilarious in some ways) idea! So, the gist of this... You just killed the character above you (Somehow) and you go to loot the corpse. What special item does the character have available to loot? As an example... Tethenar kills Astrophel (Sorry dude) and loots his corpse. What does Tethenar find? Astrophel's Head Polish Toy Use: Removes all hair from your head and develops a radiant gleam so you too can have a shiny bald head like Astrophel! So. Shoot!Tethenar358 3d
3d Guess the IC title of above poster #8 Have just Capped the last IC TITLE abow with my "Arnt" Alt Starting a new one here at once. Play nicely :-)Xirque254 3d
4d Give a nickname to the character above you #1 I randomly came up with this idea, time will tell if it'll stick.Thedraes51 4d
4d cult guild I have been wondering since i have found/seen barely any warlock themed guilds, if people were interessted in them at all.Sneakyturtle0 4d
4d How would your character kill the one above? #10 *Yabu teleports nearby Xirque* *Stretching his hand, and charging a ball of Fire, Ice and Arcane.* Whispering a powerful spell: Kaaa.....meeee.....haaa.....mee............HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA *The energy beam is so massive, powerful and fast, Xirque is totally obliterated by the extreme dangerous power of Yabu.* *With his job finished, the mighty Yabu teleports himself away.*Yabu268 4d
5d Soo, are people still roleplaying in the older zones? So... I was just curious. Are people still roleplaying out in the older zones? It might just be me that have been a bit inactive, but I haven't seen anyone doing anything in older zones, like... Uldum, Outland (anywhere really), Pandaria or so on? I might just be a bit secluded, but I haven't seen that lately and it is a bit tragic. I always found it somewhat... well, "cute", seeing like a group of roleplayers hanging out in Jade Forest, or seeing a few walking trough the Snow of Icecrown :DTrazerid5 5d
5d Your character's theme? If your character had some song or theme what would it be? I'm going to take "Service and Sacrifice", from the finale of season 3 of The Legend of Korra. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXqU6kNwYvgTaikuya349 5d
5d Throne of Thunder. The "Blood" and Potential RP? Sooo... I was doing Throne of Thunder heroic 25 man. *Flexes some totally impressive muscles, cause that content is of course still difficult... right? :) * Anyway... I am not sure if I have read it anywhere, but what was those huge wats of... well, blood? Or whatever that was in the creation pit? What is it? And would it be possible for someone to "wield" it or whatever as a source of power?Trazerid2 5d
5d Describe the above poster in 5 words or less (Part 4) I ended the last thread on Erah, the wolf fur equipped elemental warrior!Tuaitha108 5d
6d What would your character say to you? I often wonder how my characters would react to their player. Be it aggressively or in a friendly manner. My horde characters would definitely be mostly aggressive toward the idea, probably in disbelief, even if slapped in the face with evidence. But my alliance characters would mostly be accepting, except a few! The idea for this came from the movie "Last Action Hero" Where Arnold Schwarzenegger is playing a character who eventually goes into the real world, and learns his whole life was just made up for amusement, and all the horrible things that happened to him were all just a movie. From an OOC stand point, I'd reckon my Raemia would ask me to stop race changing her. She's been a Gnome, Pandaren, Human, Troll and an orc. "No mon, Ah want ta stay one race, change ma hair oah sumtin!" IC however, she'd probably be both insulted and annoyed to learn that she was created by not only a human, but a lazy human! "Ack! A human, dis gonna be a tough one ta explain, nobody need find out!" Possibly shoot me, Raemia doesn't like humans much. "An where's ma Crocolisk?!" I had a Crocolisk as my first pet, But the old model looks really bad compared to the new one. I still have him, but in stable forever more. So, how would your character react to you, OOC and IC, how you've treated them over the years, all the character flaws you've written for them as well!Raemia21 6d
6d Agents of The ilidari Greetings Adventurers. Lord Ilidan has tasked agents like me to seek out rumors of hidden threats to Azeroth, Whispers of mighty creatures or areas of myth. We reffere to them as "The Darklands" & "Beings of power" These Beings are often huge and unidentefied. If you are curious about our work take a look at this pice of evidence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds_xC1OT-1U We have informed our allies in the Archeological society of Ironforge. There were rumors of a gnome capable of summoning great demons, this one seem to have reversed the portal magic and ended up in the realm of the demon. Are you our next informant or potential agent? Feel free to sign up or join our recruites on Mardum. Best Regards: Saaberus of The ilidari.Saaberus12 6d

11 Oct Few questions about rp Im trying to get into roleplaying by watching videos and reading about it but there are few things that i haven't really found a good answer to. 1. Roleplaying your character as the class or as the spec. Like lorewise can a warlock be the master of all the different aspects of warlock or should you rp as a spec? I understand that a warrior can probably be all 3 specs at the same time and paladin too but classes like warlock, mage, hunter and maybe even rogue now in legion, seem like they might not be as easily roleplayed as all 3 specs. 2. How smart can my character be? Iv read about godmodding etc and i'm not clear on where does the fine line go between doing something people really shun and just roleplaying a really smart character or something like it. 3. Can a warlock and a priest or a warlock and a paladin get along? Iv read a lot about different races and classes having different views on different classes and races lorewise but im not entirely clear about how much can you break the mold.?Magtere3 11 Oct
11 Oct Gilnean Roleplay Is there a active Guild who is Gilnean themed?Ranlur5 11 Oct
10 Oct RP with poor english Ive recently started to RP, but I feel emberassed And low on self-esteem when IT comes to my English. Is this frowned upon? Do RPers in general have tolerance for language being something that hopefully will improve as I RP ? The more serious RPers I have encountered types like i was in Hamlett and I feel my speach and emotes are too basicRàvñ16 10 Oct
09 Oct Draenei Shaman character. (could work or burned) Right so I was making a new alliance character to RP with. Something new and that could be a nice challenge and without really thinking picked up Draenei Shaman. Only to get an earful that they are actually not really reasonable because of the Draenei's connection to the light and how only after a few years they suddenly get into Shamanism. I was thinking that this character trained in Shamanism as a way to study what goes into it and perhaps to find a way to use it against the Orcs in the Horde. Basically I would like to know the public opinion on this particular Class Race Pairup and if it is even logically possible in character If not, well I could just make him a normal civilian and the Shaman stuff is just for levelling. Thanks :)Enanza7 09 Oct

06 Oct Hidden Area on Mac'Aree (The Praetorium) To the south east corner of Mac'Aree there is a floating island with a huge fort, I was rather curious about what this place was and i figured some of you might be curious aswell. Youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oF9pThZZTys I made a short clip showing what i managed to find out there, To me it seems like an arena of some sort. I have yet to discover its purpose, but perhaps you guys have an idea? Best Regards: Saaberus, Agent of the ilidari.Saaberus1 06 Oct
