1h Shaman Portals Sooooo... what do you think is up with shaman portals seemingly becoming almost as frequent as mage portals? We have seen some of them in Cataclysm, as I suppose the portals to those zones were created by the shaman - as there are no mages around - and we even had the quest in Twilight Highlands where we gathered some water essences for them to open one back to Stormwind/Orgrimmar. But now, with the class hall, we have a portal going between the Maelstrom and Dalaran, as well as three of the elemental planes, and several quests where Nobundo or whoever is like "tell me when you wanna go fam and I'll teleport you there". Not to mention Magatha calling us noobs for not even knowing how to open a portal from Thousand Needles to the Maelstrom. Has anyone figured out any explanation for them? How do they work? Would you ever use one in RP?Zhoun1 1h
2h 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.Cathríon46 2h
3h Potentially most powerful class? Which class is potentially the most powerful in the World of Warcraft? I think it might be Warlocks? Fel magic is considered to be the strongest, right?Nevian40 3h
5h Would you date the person above you? #38 The romance and nomance continues! @ Liruthien Folding her arms, Cathríon looks the Demon Hunter up and down in a not so subtle fashion for a few moments. "Well, I would be lying if I said I'm not entirely fond of the gratuitous amounts of cleavage and barechestedness regularly displayed by your ilk, but I'm less than enamoured with the horns and how they came to be, so that should allow you to draw your own conclusions in regards to how I feel about a potential date ..." Having another quick scan, she continues. "... basically, the Illidari are a lot more fun to look at than anything else we've seen pop up out of nowhere over the past few years, such as Death Knights and the Pandaren, but then again, I can easily inspire pristine skinned, unscarred and hornless Sin'dorei to expose even more flesh, so there isn't really anything unique which you can offer asides from ... your taint." As she begins to stroll off, she stops for a moment, turning back for a final look before adding. "I like the blindfold. Good choice of colour. It's important to remember where you came from, otherwise you'll become lost before you get to where you wanted to go ... then you could end up anywhere. We don't want that now, do we?"Cathríon157 5h
5h Deathlord's Vilebrood Vanquisher Death Knight Class Mount Spoilers Soo... I wanter what skin for this dragon is most lore-friendly because I dont belive its all of them at all ( and only "gameplay > lore" thing is the reason why we have three versions). First of all... we just undead'ed a red dragon. I dont remember any red dragons but I might be wrong... still... the only fitting skin for a red undead is... blood because its red. Other option is frost wyrm. All undead dragons that we knew had frost powers... but that have changed now (if not before... cause my knowledge limitations are annoying in this post) because after making Daumyr a undead... she still uses lightning powers. That said I doubt frost is very... lore-friendly. Unholy is goofiest of all for me... life =/= light... so holy into unholy have no place there. Just like there is no reason why dead red-dragon should turn into dead-green dragon. What do YOU think about this?Jesi3 5h
6h What would your character say to the above poster? #22 (There is still things to be said, people!) To Uruk: "Eat them? That is barbaric!...Though, if seasoned..." The tauren pauses for a bit. "MUST STOP SAYING THINGS LIKE THIS!"Ategami361 6h
8h Shadow/Void magic IC ? Would it be legal to use ? And how could one use the powers of the void as a warlock etc ? What spells could be cast ? How would the power affect you ? And etc, I am generally curious, Because I like the cool looking effects of the Wrathsteed, also, on the talk of the wrathsteed, could it be a summonable mount IC ?Warlockxz6 8h
9h Draenei and Language? I am just generally curious... Is it possible or logical for a draenei to either have big problems OR very limited knowledge of the common Language? I mean, the whole thing with Draenei landing and then just happening to be able to speak Common is a bit weird, wouldn't you guys say? Just generally curious if that would work for a character or not.Trazerid7 9h
13h Anyone know a good place to make your own inn at? Hello! So here's the thing.. This charecter of mine is a Barmaid / Innkeeper. And her dream is to own her own inn one day. But im not sure of any good places to make a inn that's not already taken.. At the moment im RP in Lakeshire as a innkeeper-in-training. Stormwind is a no go.. Seeing she dont like crowed big cities. So, anyone got anything? Would like it to be in Eastern kingdom if possable.Reawood11 13h
21h Matching set to class mounts So now that most of us have class mounts, what transmog do you use with it or what do you think is the best set/combination that fits with the fantasy of that mount?Callixtus12 21h
21h [H] Pandaren RP Guild? ... I accidentally posted this in the German forums.../blush Anyway, I've noticed that there aren't any Pandaren-based guilds in the Horde, even though I see a lot of Pandaren running around in Argent Dawn. I've been thinking about making one. What do you think? Would you be willing to join, is it worth making? Any name suggestions? I was thinking about a RP/social guild with the aim of integrating Pandaren into the Horde.Zhupai1 21h
1d 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 :-)Xirque159 1d
1d Rate the appearance of the character above you #8 (And new thread to continue http://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/15161828670?page=26#post-501) ... Here's a picture to show Kahli'wa's more ceremonial outfit. Which also works as my transmog: http://imgur.com/iF56hN3Kahliwa464 1d
1d Your in a Inn your in a in what do you do: Erah sitting at the back of the inn bored out of his mind drinking sweet nectar. in the corner light shining radiating the inn not to brightly but not to dark. he see's the inn packed with many people goblin,gnomes,draenei,blood elf,orcs, humans and others. he looks next to him a blood elf pushing her chest at his biceps talking gibberish(obviously drunk). Erah ignores her and spots something spectacular saying: "Interesting?" note: that everywhere is lively gambling, a mini bomb about to explode in a face of a tuskarr and a fight starting between a goblin and a human....Erah2 1d
1d EU RP servers for Horde? Hey how are the other European PvE-RP servers aside from Argent Dawn? I've been RPing on AD for some time, but since you can't have more than 12 chars within one realm, I've decided to split my Alliance chars on one and Horde on another. More room for variety this way also. Could you recommend me which would be best choice to RP as Horde?Kendolf2 1d
1d /Emote battles: What should be allowed or not Ok, so I usually would go for a /roll battle since it's easier, but there are at times i would have to do /emote battles, and I won't know for sure what kinds of emotes are right or not. Just this evening with my guild; I had to do /emotes batlle without roll since my female rogue alt was going through some trial, and she was on fighting with a fel guard. The emote went something like this: Lucia would dodge the attempt attack from the fel guard's swing of the axe, then would grab her smoke grenade, bites off the switch and thwrows it before him. If successful, she would grab both her daggers and run forward to jump above him, flipping around twice before landing, then strikes the daggers right through the fel guard's back, but not instantly killing it The GM there would tell me the emote I did was bit too OP or godly. I am a little concerned about what I should do about it to make me a better at /emote battling without roll. Was the emote too OP? Are there any tips I should know to get better grip on it? Please make the explanations easy for me to understand since English isn't my native language. How long it is doesn't matter. Thank you :)Lgriggers9 1d
1d I feel abandoned So as the title says i feel abandoned. My name is Hekil. I have experienced way too much. But i never spoken about that, until now. You may think, im just another whiny low-lvl paladin, who wants to cry about his damned life. But no. I'm here to tell you my story about many mistakes and attrocities i have done recently. And i hope, some of you will recognize themselves and try to mend their ways. My story begins in the Outland. Well, actually it begun during the last moments of the Second War. If you remember, there was massacre when the orcs led by Grommash Hellscream and Rexxar attacked our Netherguarde keep. I was one among many young boys who craved for vengeance for their lost homes and families, for glory and fame. Unfortunately, we lost that fight badly. If my memory serves, there were only 25 survivors, others were brutally murdered. Our only solace was knowing that our honorable leader, Danath Trollbane, was alive and was coming with reinforcements. At least, we thought so, until the orcs imprisoned us, though each of us was ready to die for the Alliance and Azeroth. My brother in arm, a native of Southshore, Ardin, told me he heard something at orcish: he wasn't really sure, since he couldn't distinguish their words clearly, but he insisted the orc warlocks were going to use our souls as a conduit to summon a void creature, that would help them in their schemes in Azeroth. We didn't know what their plans were, but suddenly Grommash refused to "sacrifice" us. He despised the warlocks' leader, Trokrun and begun to argue with him about "honor during any wars" and so on. Then, out from nowhere, Teron Gorefiend. He spoke to Grommash and the latter seemed to calm down and submit. The day after the warlocks started their rituals. I think it was 15 of us to die immediately since their souls had been drained. The youngest of us, Donin, noticed a huge hole opening in the skies. Everything got black, we couldn't see anything, but we could hear a voice. No, it wasn't just a voice, it was a terrible howl, i don't even know with what i can compare it. Then we saw a gigantic bundle of dark energy, i had heard about giant ogres, but any ogre was merely a runt. The orcs called him "Zuraku". I didn't know what that meant, but it didn't care me, because orcs gave 7 of the remaining warriors as a sacrifice and food for this monster. Now i can clearly tell you i have never seen anything more cruel and terrific than that sight: the monster didn't just eat them, he absorbed their essences and ate their bodies spitting out their skulls only. The voices and cries of my brothers.. They still don't leave me, i hear them whenever i'm alone. Uhh.. I lost consciousness. I didn't know how many days i had been without any signs of life. Anyway, when i woke up i saw the following: Ardin, trying to get me up, and Donin holding his scratched blade and defending us. I didn't know what was going there, but soon i saw the orcs in panic and heard the voice i had wished to hear for all that time: the sound of Danath's horn. Hope came to me that moment. We saw Grommash, Trokrun and Teron discussing something. Ardin told me to flee, since the orcs were getting to ready for the incoming attack. Donin informed that Teron and Zuraku disappeared for their cause. The battle was bloody, but hopefully we won. This time Danath came with high-Lieutenant Turalyon, Kurdran Wildhammer, Alleria Windrunner and archmage Khadgar. Grommash and Rexxar fleed with the remaining orcs. Though the fight was won, i lost my friend, Ardin. Donin and me burried his body and we sworn to avenge his death. We were among the first to accept Turalyon's plan for invading Draenor. After few days of preparations we were ready to start our journey. Hopefully, nothing bad happened to me and Donin. We survived the war in Draenor. We cheered Turalyon when he killed Teron, glad to see Khadgar winner against Dentarg, we were extremely proud of Danath, who defeated mighty Killrog in a rival. But then came the day when we had to lose everything we ever cared for: some of us decided to stay in Draenor forever to never let the Dark Portal open again. But some met even more miserable fate: with Turalyon and Alleria they stepped to the Void, following Nerzhul. And as you might have already guessed, i was among them. When leaving Draenor, that had became the Outland, i remembered my hometown, Strahnbrad, my family, my mother and sisters begging me not to go to the war and my father who died protecting Southshore. Yes, i knew i was going to lose everything, but i was full of determination that i would stop that madness once and for all. I realised i could never return back but it was honor for me to die shoulder to shoulder with Turalyon himself. And thus we met the Darkness itself... _________________________ So my first part ends here. I will keep telling you my story later on, if you enjoy this, my kids. Anyway, the night is long and the campfire won't extinguish soon.Hekilrandir4 1d
1d How do you RP magic? There are all kinds of magic roleplayers. At simplest, magic is merely a way how the character fights in rp events and they focus more on the other traits of the character. Then there are roleplayers who put a lot of thought in how their character uses magic. They might have made a complex system how magic works for their character or they might have a long list of spells that are written in their character's spellbooks. There is a lot of different sources for magic lore, such as quests, wow books, wow rpg books, real life and even other games. I'd love to read your opinions how you roleplay your magic use, what kind of "system" you have and how it plays on your character. I'd be eager to also read if your toon practices some of the more untraditional ways of magic and how it works for you. I'm making this thread for two reasons. First one is that I'm curious and interested in the subject and other reason being that this thread might give people new ideas regarding magic RP!Nare7 1d
1d Choose a theme for the above poster. Cathrion was suggesting themes for my Shaman, I'd still stick to Manowar. but it gave me an idea for another forum thing that I can waste several hours of each day checking for updates upon. Pick a Musical theme that -YOU- think suits the above poster. Music is a good way to enrich our minds, even bad music. So let's share bands eh? Edit: I generally enjoy sharing heavy metal with people, hopefully people will enjoy it, if you don't want to listen, totally up to you. Edit: Finntroll is always a good answer!Grikkha360 1d
2d General RP Chat #40: Storming into a new thread Yes, I did want to make a heroes of the storm pun given the last thread's ending. I REGRET NOTHING! But yeah, Garrosh being added. I don't actually have anything against the character being added like in his own right, there are plenty bad guys in HotS and I will fully admit it is fun to occasionally be able to play as the guys you usually beat up (I greatly enjoy playing Diablo, Leoric and Gul'dan for some examples). It's just uuugh... Another Orc. We already have Thrall, Rehgar, Rexxar, Gul'dan and Samuro... Meanwhile we have no Draenei, no Eredar, only one Troll, one Goblin, one Tauren (who is a joke character rather than a proper lore character anyway), one Undead... etc. I don't mind Garrosh being added but the Orc thing is getting old >.<Tyrinne30 2d
2d Describe the above poster in 5 words or less (Part 3) Not the one who ended the thread prior, but I will open a new one, as needs must.Elyssarain348 2d
2d What would you do with the Above Poster? #16 At late night while Cathrion is out, Dakuh breaks into her house, stealing her daggers, blades, jewelery even her scarf. He gets away with it before Cathrion returns, and sells everything to Feenly and co.Dakuh289 2d
2d A returning player question Greetings folks Having recently got back into Wow, I've begun gathering friends to join the fray too. Although we'd like to quest on the RP realms this time around. Enjoying the content on offer at a slower and casual pace. Giving time to chat, joke and chillout. Carving paths through Azeroth and having our own adventure. Which realm, faction and regions do you think would be ideal for this style? Preferably with a Alliance / Horde ratio that's even. Having done a bit of research, Argent Dawn or Defias Brotherhood seem to be the best choices. But if anyone could give any recommendations, feedback, reference particular guilds or a point in the right direction. Would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Additionally if anyone would like to party up feel free to give me a shout Haydenator#21689Shinishot3 2d
3d Dealing with DK Eyes Literally searching through content in this subforum trying to figure out a solution to my problem. The Problem Simply put who wouldn't want to be able to play on their Main? The character they see the most, use the most, put in most of their pve-hours? Too bad if that is a DK. And there you have the little forced on you problem of the blue eyes branding you a DK. To prevent suggestions of DK rp - on my server DK Rp is dead. Not undead, not pretty dead - 100% dead and empty. While i considered a Lonewolf style character in the wild stumbling into RP once in a blue moon, this just makes me frustrated on the inside. Thoughts therefore So the solution is to not be a DK ic whilst being brandmarked a dk by the engine. 3 ideas came up, each one with different problems: 1.) Non Dk despite eyes - this has a bitter taste to it. One might think of you as to lazy to level a real RP char, puts you in a boat with "Not a DK"-DKs who atleast in my experience have a bad rep. 2.) High Elf. Now the eyes make sense. Embracing them as part of the concept and getting rid of the lazy tag. Now you end up all to easy as a special snowflake, Mary Sue or simply still a Non-Dk dk in the eyes of people. You simply have another argument for you. High Elf i would only try to play on alliance, where it would become a non human human. Again a can of worms. 3.) Googles - Unless making it a gnome those things look hideous as !@#$ and it becomes weird when being removed IC. Like discovering a certain something between the legs of the chick you pulled from the bar last night. Conclusion and question I am sick of my main being unviable to do RP cause i enjoy the DK class, but each posdibility seems to come with problems/instant judgement. I just wanne enjoy my one most played character in any scenario. Rp, PvE, PvP, Petbattles, Transmogfarm... whatever it be, but what tips could you guys give me to mske it happen in RP?Valenir10 3d
6d General RP chat #39; Elves are people too! Carrying on: ... That I can grasp as they lose some of what they were as they grow. There was an original, often idolized image that changed far beyond first impressions. My objection is that this happens universally as storylines advance and the narrative demands more from the actors involved. They could not remain isolationist in a changing world and fighting the scourge/demons put such a dent in their numbers that the cenarion gender barriers had to go. Again I struggle to see how night elves suffer uniquely from lore developments. Well, aside from losing some of their vauge WC3 image. My impression of them remains as a unique culture with a special relationship with the living world and the "gods" of the setting. They're no less primal than they were. Maybe we focus on and enjoy different things about them? I think they're way too special and distinct to be dismissed as filler or purple humans. And like I said, I don't regard playable night elf/highborne mages to be irredeemable heresy given the appropriate buildup and context it received. That, and I forget what exactly made night elves matriarchal in a rigid sense. It's a lingering trope I often see played up by RPers that benefit from it (priestesses, amazonian sentinels) when my memories are dominated by segregation rather than supremacism. That, however is its own lengthy debate... As for silly questlines or voice acting killing the race lore, I don't think it does. Trolls aren't ruined forever by zen'kiki flopping around on the ground in seal form and humans remain a thing despite entire quest zones being pop culture references.Marinya500 6d
6d How powerful are we? So here a role playing question for you guys and girls is (since im new). How powerful are we cuz i refuse to just be a foot soldier or someone higher than that. i rather be on the level of a near powerful mortal not above khadgar level. but strong enough to be recognized by my peers e.g shamans,mages. and I refuse to down grade my Character power like im a freakin shaman. i know im powerful i can summon a mountain out of sheer will. at very least on par with muln earth fury. so what do you guys think. ps not above thrall since he OP but just below him but powerful enough to be recognized.Erah22 6d
19 Jul Rogue class description is misleading https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/game/classes/rogue ... Cutpurse? Excuse me? You don't see Mages being described as "Arcane Addicts", or Warriors as "Brainless Brawlers" do you? Because not all of them are like that. Why claim that all Rogues are cutpurses? ... While some Rogues are indeed like that, this is unfair prejudice against all players of the class. Any other class can be of such moral standards as described above. You don't have to pigeonhole a whole class into such a negative connotation. ... When I think Rogue, I imagine Robin Hoob, James Bond, Bilbo Baggins and many others. Hardly "brutal" archetypes "free from the constraints of a conscience", don't you think? Again, any other class can be a be brutal, heartless mercenary. Not all Rogues are like that. ... Outlaw Rogues (Pirates, right?) don't even "do it from behind" anymore. And why is it that all Rogues are described as "lethal assassins"? Why not "charming fencers"? Both would sound equally silly in the class description because it's all unnecessary stigmas and earmarks. Again, you don't have to pigeonhole a whole class into something like that. Anyhow, here's my take on a decently balanced and well descriptive Rogue class definition: ...Nevian1 19 Jul
19 Jul Family Tree Names, yea.. So! Due to a prolonged vacation I find my self at the well of boredom so I decided I want to make one of my characters backstory go back 10 generations. Making little stories for each of his forefathers, here's where I'm looking for help for some names for his forefathers, men and woman, five generations back on his fathers side are dwarven so throw some in there if you want, the rest would be human I believe, I could sure come up with them myself, but having other people suggest names may just help the creative process since it's a lot of names :D Double Thanks in advance, cheers!Bensworth1 19 Jul
19 Jul Details, details. Blizzard has a habit of creating stuff like nations, but not giving them any laws or any organizational structures. If they could possibly do that, it would explain a lot on how the Kirin Tor for example operates, which would make rping a character from their ranks easier. Ditch "laws" and bring anarchy bwahahahahahahaDevyx8 19 Jul
19 Jul Fire... mounts? So I've been debating (with myself) whether or not one could have a fire mount in character if they were skilled with fire, per say, Cindermane Charger, Pureblood Fire Hawk, Flametalon Of Alysrazor, or perhaps Ashes of Al'ar? (granted it's not Al'ar or Flametalon) Could the mounts that I mentioned above be created through fire magic or would they have to be summoned from the firelands? Maybe something completely different? I'm trying to figure out a mount suitable for my character (Half Elf, High elf and Human, fire user) that won't be too much of a hassle to have such as a horse or a gryphon that you have to tie to something all the time or what not. (PS: Mog not finished pls no hate </3)Dagandale6 19 Jul
19 Jul What is the "Loner" race? I'm a quiet person. I like to be alone, and i don't really like interacting with people. I have decided i wan't to make a RP character in WoW, because it seems cool. The race i wanna roleplay as however. I cannot decide. I have come down to either The Forsaken or the Dwarfes. As i said earlier, i like to keep myself company, i'm not depressed or anything, but i like being alone (i am sure alot of you do as well). The Forsaken like to be alone, but they are kind of a bit too mean :) Dwarfes like to wander of alone too, but they seem a bit too proud, What would you recommend, and why? Thanks in advance..Deliría6 19 Jul
19 Jul What is your favorite food? (IC) IC: Hello there, peopple of Azeroth! You might have hear about Snowleaf's research work and now i am looking for what kind of favorite food does peopple of Azeroth have. What is your favorite food? That what you made often and just brings a big smile on your face, when you taste it delicios taste... now that made me hungry.. Ahem! Send letter to my hutt and i shall read it through, then i shall do research about it! OOC: Hello! This is my character post in new's paper or an note on noteboard. There is an locationg for her mail box, so no need to worry IC stuff ^^ So, what is your character favorite food? If he or she has one and you wish to be part of research, do post it under this post. I shall make at some point an ''research'' about it to Argent archives, where my character research is.Taylinin18 19 Jul
19 Jul New to RP So, I finally decided to take a break from nonstop raiding and mythic+ dungeons and head to more adventurous world. But the thing is, i'am completly new to this world. I know what RP is, and even though i heared much things about how to create an RP character. I still don't quiet understand this. So I made this night elf druid character (Yes i know much about their lore) to begin with. And so I have a few questions, about how to create your character's backstory, how does the argent dawn server works, where can i find some people to roleplay with, and HOW TO ROLEPLAY. So let's start with first question, and that is: How to create your characters backstory? I mean do u create your characters story by just leveling and doing some RP scenarious as an story part? Or you just create the whole story? The next thing I would like to know is: How does the AD server work? I know that RP servers are different than other servers. But how exactly? Is there like some RP scenario or just RP group finder? (Something like dungeon finder) Or you just have to find a guild? And what about levels? Are levels in roleplayng important? I also heared they are not as important as on other servers but they certainly are. Is that true? What about the people to roleplay with, only guilds again I guess.

18 Jul Thoughts on "Highlady" title? After I got the "Highlord" title I ran with it for a couple days. I'm assuming its okay for males who roll female paladins, but I'd rather much prefer "Highlady". Liadrin is of course "Lady Liadrin", granted not a Highlord. What are everyone's thoughts on this? I've seen a thread requesting "High Priestess" for female priests. I think both are valid.Hetepheres40 18 Jul

16 Jul 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!Tethenar296 16 Jul
16 Jul LFRP: Pandaren or Demon hunter needed Hello, My name is Petros and I play a Night elf Balance Druid on the Venture CO. RP PvP server. I am looking for two individuals to assist me in a role-player scenario/adventure. I wish to go to Orgrimmar to spread political propaganda against the !@#$% Queen Sylvanas and her Forsaken abominations (and also Death Knights).* *It would be better to schedule a diplomatic mission but alas, no proper channel exist to do that. (would require too many people to organize *note to self, see what it costs to hire a Horde RP guild and maybe some bodyguards*) Therefore, I am looking for translators who can fascilitate communication between me and the general population of Orgrimmar. On our way back from the mission we might swing by the former capital city of Lorderon (currently under Forsaken occupation) and remind the rotting cadavers to kill themselves for good. Food and travel expenses included. There will be sweets. Requirements: Any Pandaren or any Blood/Night Elf Demon Hunter. Gender is irrelevant. At least 885 item level required for the plan to go smoothly. 900+ iLevel is preferred but not required. Date will be anounounced after translators have been found but planning to do it ASAP.Petros2 16 Jul
16 Jul Roleplay a Scarlet Crusade Monk? How feasible is it that I could RP as a Scarlet Crusade Monk? I know most of the organization is gone, but there's still a bunch of em around. Scarlet Monastery also has monks. There's even a Scarlet Crusade npc in Stormwind (Brother Crowley). And you could RP that he trained you as a monk. As human I think this makes a better story then the generic "Pandaren came to Azeroth and trained us". Considering also that as a human monk I would barely have any training done compared to original pandaren (who obviously have trained much longer). It just seems better on a roleplay/story standpoint that my char would've had training for a longer time already through the Scarlet Crusade. I also know of those draenei monks in auchindoun, and I guess it's a similar thing for if you'd want to roleplay one of those.Zaitama31 16 Jul
16 Jul 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=kXqU6kNwYvgTaikuya336 16 Jul
16 Jul Warlock demon summoning, legal or not? I've been googling and searching the forums but most information on the subject seems to be quite vague or simply lacks any source material to back up their claims. I've read that It's frowned upon, which is fairly obvious, and that It's even banned in ironforge, but lots of these topics where from pre-2014. I'd imagine since Demon hunters where accepted into the horde and alliance in legion and they essentially constantly struggle with the demon that serves as their power source, it might've effected warlock law somewhat, but again I'm just guessing. I'd really love to hear about source material discussing this subject so i can form a more solid view on the matter. Thanks!Aralise12 16 Jul
15 Jul 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.*Yabu199 15 Jul

13 Jul Eye Of Aman'thul in ToS? So...we use all the pillars of eternity in ToS to move around the tomb and seal the tomb, apart from the eye . We knew we needed all 5 of them to seal the tomb, but the eye of aman thul seems to be completely useless since its nowhere to be found in ToS. Am I missing something?Caleanon2 13 Jul
13 Jul Languages in RP Hello fellow Rp'ers. This is one of my first forum posts, however I am posting due to an IC concern about my rp, I have been using a concept of which I am unable to understand the languages of the other alliance races. I have devoted a part of my TRP to this, of which spending multiple years learning them with tutors as well as using books while I speak such languages. I have now had two Draenei tell me that the Draenei language is far to complex for anyone but themselves to speak, And that other races can only understand with the assistance of arcane magics. One also saying OOC I would be unable to speak such a language, I asked where I could find such information but they auto ignored me thus i was unable to get a source. So I am asking on the forums if such things are true or if I can get a relevant source and I will stop using such a concept immediately. (I have done prior research on this and nothing came up, so not just being lazy, just cannot find anything and no one I know sees a reason either.)Talvizz24 13 Jul
13 Jul Any range display addon for raid profiles? So i was wondering if there is any addon that will show me if my party members are in range or not. For example if someone wasn't in range their raid profile would turn grey instead of green.Krethuz3 13 Jul
11 Jul an expansion with RP elements within it greets to all, i was thinking the warcraft lore community has been growing in the last few years, so why not add some RP elements within the next expansion. this is my idea and how it can be added. legion have stepped up the archaeology, so why not take it to the next level by making each race research its own history for cosmetic items and unlocking new class fixtures within each race here are a few example trolls: unlocking more voodoo masks, troll glaives/weapons/armor sets, and end reward unlocking raventusk green skin for trolls human/dwarf/gnomes: each of them can take different path but the main idea is unlocking their titanic history with each race having its unique humans kul'tiras sailor armor, dwarves wildhammer/dark iron orcs: unlocking clan bases armor with weapons, and end reward brown/grey skin nightelves/bloodelves: highbourne/ancient druidic armor and weapons, such has spellbreaker/bloodmage for bloodelves. these are some possible ideas and they should be race base restricted not class, and i would like to hear the community's thoughts and ideas in the comments bellow. have a pleasant eveningRokaro10 11 Jul
