While I dont play on an RP server I kind of want to. I make all my characters with lore/roles in mind. My Warlock-Orc with bloodshot eyes and is going to do every shadow council quest available. My shaman, an Orc with blue eyes to make him seam like one of the young frost wolf shamans and guess what rep I am going to work on as soon as he is high enough level. I even design them too look a certain role. My warrior is taurenn not because they are big and look cool in plate but the idea of a shock troop running into, bashing things out of his way with horns and pulling a massive axe/hammer/tree off his back as if to say come get me (Anyone seen the newer Narnia movie, the old minotaur in that movie that dies at the castle). Hell I even made a dranei that looks as close to a broken as I could so I could make him a shadow priest ;). Fallen from the light much?If you flame rpers, well maybe you should look in the mirror. As mentioned above, you play an mmoRPG. Your not playing a startegy game and if your raiding you have already moved through days worth of lore and are continuing to shape it. Infact y doing the raids you are helping out RPers. Many guilds never have or ever will see Kil'jaden, but still the lore will ssay and entrepid band of warriors charged into the Sun well to kick his ass out of azeroth. Because of that Rpers can move on to a differnt phase of the azerothian world. If you dont like that, then move on, find a different game that is less emersive, like I dont know, Mortal Kombat, or Halo. No loss for us who enjoy the lore/emersion in the lore and roles. Hell there is one more thing. YOUR RAID ROLES ARE BASED ON LORE/ROLE PLAYING! Thus the term ROLE.
