Mar 13th 2011 11:26PM How to save RP, IMO:
When you are waiting for a zeppelin with a bunch of other people, make a small comment in-character. Someone is bound to respond- everyone else is as bored as you.
When you encounter someone else while questing, hail them in character and invite them to your party. Most players are good sports and will play along.
When you are bored and wandering around, look for people just sitting or standing in interesting places and ask them what they're doing. If they're RPers they'll take the opportunity to talk about themselves; if they're not, what have you lost?
In short, if you're bored, be bored in character, and don't be afraid to make the first comment! Most people are nice and friendly to RPers- They're just shy, really!
And if the person you try to talk to swears at you for being an RPer on an RP realm, report him/her to Blizzard and try again.
Mar 3rd 2011 9:42AM It just so happened that I had a friend over who hadn't played the game since BC, so I was showing him all the massive changes to the old world while he marveled.
I've just flown over the chasm in the barrens and I'm heading south to show him how 1K needles is flooded.
And then the sky goes red.
"What the hell?"
From both me and my friend. I stop flying and look around.
And I get a very good look at Deathwing as he comes straight down the road towards me breathing fire.
"OMG!!!! RUN AWAAAAAAAY!!!"
Needless to say, I died.
Mar 15th 2009 9:24AM This would have been a lot more awesome for me if it'd happened BEFORE I ground back all my Bloodsail rep so I could talk to Dirge Quickcleave... ah well.
Mar 6th 2009 9:43PM I wonder if they're going to remove or change the stealth removing part of Faerie Fire then. It'd suck to not be able to stealth for five minutes as a rogue. (though CoS might help with that)
Feb 5th 2009 10:18PM I named my character "Lagren."
Though nobody mispronounces it, I had missed the obvious...
Everyone calls me Lag.
Nov 6th 2008 2:17PM It's a one in a million chance... I hope...
Aug 30th 2008 4:54PM I'm going for a Troll Male DK.
Oh yeah, did you notice? It seems that the Blood Elves have gotten new emotes due to the events at the Sunwell... "Quel'thalas shines once again" instead of "the sin'dorei will prevail."
Or maybe i'm just confused.
