It's true that figuring out a reason why your character kills things is a very good way to begin. Certainly it's something they have to acknowledge -- though you don't necessarily have to roleplay yourself as an extremely bloodthirsty mass murderer of thousands daily, regardless of how many mobs you actually farm. There are many ways to approach this; with my draenei hunter, I say she never kills anyone or anything when it is at all avoidable. Usually she just shoots them in the kneecaps (as in Terminator 2!) or else with a "Tranquilizing shot" arrow that puts them to sleep. I wrote an article about this killing our heroes do a while back:http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/09/02/mass-murder-101-how-to-be-a-hero/Also, there are a few quests like Sean mentioned, where you have to defend a group of NPCs from invading villains.* The ones I know about are not very easy to access, though, so you might not have heard of them. Still, a number of the quests you do are actually very heroic. I found it fun to talk with my friends about how my character was a spy for the Netherwing Dragons against those nasty Dragonmaw fel orcs, for example, when I was working on the daily quests for my dragon mount.*Here's a Netherwing "Defend the city" quest:http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=11097 (There are Scryer and Aldor versions)And here's the famous "Battle of Darrowshire:"http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=5721 (from pre-BC)
