Although I have never tried the whole role-playing thing I would gladly bow to those of you who do. I think it take a lot more mentally to role-play. Staying in character, making sure to stay true to your story, etc. So my hat is off to you guys. And I particularly want to say good job to those of you who feel so strongly about it that you skip spells and professions. HOWEVER I would comment about engineering. Does the person who doesn't believe in it ever go to Iron Forge? I mean between Dwarves and Gnomes its a huge, huge part of their lore. So I have to agree that just because it doesn't fit someone's idea of Swords and Sorcery doesn't make it not Rp-worthy. The other stuff I can see. If you are a Hunter and you envision your hunter being an archer then I would say that makes perfect sense to not touch a gun. If you are Holy and your character grew up only knowing the ways of light then good for you. That makes perfect sense.In the end I don't know. I would like to kind of start something casual on an RP server but I just don't have enough friends who would be in to it or even try it. And I do think that some of the hardcore RP'ing is kind of a turn off to them. For example; what happens when your friend that is not into the engineering thing groups with an engineer? Or a Gnome with the Mechanostrider mount? Do they just not group with that person? Is the person not allowed in the guild? Just some stuff that came to mind after reading this sorry for the rant and wall of text.
