A thing Blizzard seems to ignore, is that most people who do not roleplay, still use most of the roleplaying tools out there. They use RP items(as in, items with low/no stats, focused on graphics or effects), they take part in seasonal activities that give no PVE/PVP-related rewards they spend lots of time/money on mounts that give no different stats than other mounts, and so on. I think, for example, player/guild housing isn't going to be something ONLY roleplayers use. Personal tabards(which has been mentioned in a different post) will probably become popular among non-roleplayers as well.Just like roleplayers use PVE/PVP content, PVP and PVE players often use RP content.

I agree with that too, though. Instanced guild housing would be nice for everyone. Even my non-RP guilds often find it a pain in the ass to find a secluded spot to hold a gathering.

As a roleplayer, I can't say I like the personal tabbards idea. That's a normal thing, not an RP thing.See, the idea of having a tabbard is like you're wearing a uniform, or a flag. It's a way to align yourself and be recognized as part of a larger whole. Having a tabbard to represent you... and only you... is like saying "Look at me! I'm so awesome I can be my OWN guild/country/faction!"Good thing for people who love vanity mounts and crazy looking weapons to stand out from the crowd, bad idea for roleplayers who actually want to fit -in- with the world. Totally opposite goals there.I'm not really fond of the Blizzard stance that if something has absolutely no practical application at all, it should make a roleplayer happy.

I agree with what Zunaj said about tabards. I would like to design my own just because I use it to hide my ugly outfits. If something were added like dies to color your clothes to match personal tabards wouldn't be needed. Well, by me anyway.
