My very evil Undead warlock simply walks everywhere he goes. Why? Because evil doesn't run. My Gnome mage had an unfortunate mishap as a babe, which caused him to become imbued with barely-controllable arcane fire magic. He has to constantly drink water to keep himself and any other flammable objects (including people) in the vicinity from bursting into flame. Quirks can add an excellent RP factor to a character. A superb example is the TV show character Monk. Fantastic use of a very common disorder in everyday situations. For RP, just be sure to have a solid reason for it. Doesn't have to be very rational, in my opinion, since we are dealing with a fantasy realm.

Hey Jim :) You don't find people get annoyed with you for walking when they have to wait for you to catch up? I would have listed "walking everywhere" as an anti-social quirk and advised readers against it, but if you can make it work in social situations, I'd love to hear how! I imagine it could work in places where your character would ride a mount, but in instances it could get tricky, especially on a wipe, when everyone has to run through half the instance again. I assume you never walk in PvP, of course.

This, and the skull day, are my favorites actually. I can see the walking idea as entertaining because he could be extremely irritated whenever he's 'forced' to run. I actually think that the warlock has the most intrinsic role play potential. Verbally abuse your imp, /laugh as you cast rain of fire. In character you hate everyone and everything but only in ways that is fun for everyone.My main is on a PVP server in a guild very focused on PVE progression, so the little roleplaying I do is just for entertaining myself mostly. But ever since the beginning when I was learning the classes and first found out that only hunters and warlocks get pets... I've pretended that my tauren warrior has an invisible yellow rabbit companion named russel. Russel hides somewhere in the chamber of a boss if the raid looks to be about to wipe so after we finally kill the boss i run around calling out "russel! its okay, he's dead, come back we've got more work to do! Russel! We'll leave without you".Generally people just stand around while loot is distributed.

Has anyone else noticed that you can almost always tell an RPer by something as simple as seeing them walk rather than run? It's almost as effective as using an RP tag mod.
