RPing never really used to make its way into questing with me. I play on an RP server, but sometimes, I just... NEED to be out of character; to me, quests and instances are one such occasion. I'm not a heavy-RP kinda guy, by any right; I do RP, though, and I love to RP.With Cata's release, however (or more accurately, Patch 4.0.3a), came my NE mage. And with HER came a multitude of in-character decisions and reactions. When she was sent to Maestra's Post, she'd been told in the quest text that it was under attack. When she saw the MAGNITUDE of the attack, however... well, let's just say she killed a couple dozen more Horde Invaders than was necessary.Also, a friend and I used to run Wrath heroics all the time (pre-Cata), and every so often, he'd begin a very, VERY brief RP session, centered around a 'captain's log' method of speech. I, being the smartass I tend to be, would fire off a couple responses, and everyone in the group - even the ones who scoffed that we were from an RP server - would laugh at some of the exchanges. It helped brighten the mood (provided there were no asshats in our random, of course, lest they were to take offense to a couple of people actually ENJOYING themselves somehow [asshat being defined as 'elitist' or 'gogogo' people who had zero tolerance for anything but getting through the heroic as fast as possible]).

To hijack your comment a little:A well placed, sarcastic/snarky comment will almost always loosed a group right up... or at least, this is what I've found.Nothing like explaining what "Butt pulling" means (as a hunter/ranged character, it is when you back up for a bit more range, only to stick your butt into the closest group of mobs accidentally) to lighten up the mundane #12653 run through [dungeon].I'll usually do little things, like scold my pet as a Hunter (Stop chasing the critte- *CRUNCH*... bad dog.), or ghostwolf dance on my Shaman, to help lighten the mood otherwise.
