I think there should be more orc/human role play. There is a weird bond between them and it would be nice if it was able to be explored more by the rp'rs out there.

By bond, do you mean the hilt I'm holding, or the pointy end that's lodged in that Human Paladin?Throm-Ka, "Friend".

Hate for the sake of hate is dumb. It also ignores a lot of the lore of WoW.Gotta look past the violence at times.

Or we can exterminate the vermin infesting future Alliance lands. Either way.

Leethax, you seem like my kinda guy. Wanna do lunch over tauren steaks? I hear they're very good.

This is a neat idea, but I'm curious how one would actually accomplish it. How is cross-faction RP done? I've never seen it, so I'm having a hard time picturing it beyond a string of emotes.

@ MariusAgreed, however...It's true that there have been many Orc and Human friendships, partnerships, and alliances. Jaina and Thrall being I think the most obvious example. My point however, the one that doesn't stab things, would be this is Warcraft. The entire theme of the game is based on the conflict between Orcs and Humans.The story has evolved, and so have many of the characters, but at it's core, this game is about conflict. That's what I find fun about it. I can put aside real life, where I spend my time skirting the grey and being diplomatic, and instead embrace faction loyalty. Does this mean I never play Alliance? No in fact I've been leveling and rp'ing a Dwarf for Brewfest.Anyway, I love complex characters and story lines, but I also love the simplicity of the faction conflict. I'm not a fan of sports, I've never been a nationalist, so Warcraft is where I play with these concepts. Besides, more than being Horde for life, I'm at my heart a Forsaken sympathizer, which gives me plenty of reasons to dislike Humans...and want to stab them. Alot.

@ WollsmothYou have to use Real ID, Vent and characters (players) who act as "translators". In fact it would be great if Blizzard just did away with what is essentially an old PvP mechanic and allow us the ability to learn languages. Which could work very easily considering the fact that our characters already complete quests for characters of the opposite faction, it would only make sense that your character could eventually pick up another language simply by being around these NPC's so much.
