I still see the "Raiders can't be RPers" too mentality FROM CLASSIC WOW at times--because that's where it's still from, years and years later. It's caused issues when people wanted to schedule RP events during guild raid times--or got angry because we were doing for fun RP raids instead of a (honestly boring and non-event) weekly guild meeting.My solution is to be part of a guild (or guilds) that not only raids but also RPs. We only raid 2 nights a week, we RP before, a bit during, and after raids, we attend the server social events, we RP with each other and random people on other nights. If your guildmates can't be part of or supportive of all of your game activities, why are you there? Also, I know plenty of RPers in non-RP guilds that still get plenty of RP. My server, despite one or two old school hardliners, is very open and welcoming to Raiding RPers for the most part; our walk-up RP is too quiet to NOT be open to any potential RP!And here's an idea--wear other gear or RP clothing instead of raid tier all the time. What soldier goes to a bar in full uniform and field kit gear? Why would our characters? My priest has a huge assortment of dresses. My paladin may occasionally wear her armor, but usually goes to events in "civvies". There's a built-in outfitter now, use it for RP sets as well as raiding/pvp/dungeon/offspec sets!Being an RPer means being open to RP and promoting it and supporting it on the server. It has nothing to do with also being a PvPer or being a Raider. It's about being open, friendly, and IC when hanging out at the bank or AH, behind the Cathedral, or even at the raid itself with your pals.
