Aug 27th 2010 2:07PM I kept waiting for it to become more tongue in cheek or, you know, not take itself so seriously...Would have been way better if it weren't so srs bsns. Also photo of that guy in the middle of the video was...special?
Aug 27th 2010 1:29PM Same exact as me, first char rogue, second prot warrior :)
Part of the reason I focused on a warrior for my second maxed character was that for me she was a complete opposite of the rogue playstyle and totally refreshing.

Jul 20th 2010 7:24PM Well, it's not like you have to constantly rp all of those facets of the game. What makes rp awesome for me is that instead of mindlessly going through all the different journeys a toon goes through in WoW, you can do it in the mindset of a character. Even if I don't 'RP' it, so to speak, I still find it rewarding to go through quests through my characters eye. See the landscape as she sees it. This is particularly fun going into say, outland or starting northrend, because I got see, for example, hellfire penninsula through my draenei's eyes. Got to understand how visiting Draenor really made her reevaluate how she'd been living her life and how detached she was from her own people and history--not to mention the Light.
Anyway, that's how I see it, and why it's worthwhile for me.
Jul 15th 2010 8:19AM Honestly, I never felt I had any freedom in my choices. Nor did I really want any, honestly. The math and theorycrafting of the game is down at the bottom of the list of why I play WoW, so it's practically a non-issue for me.
Anyway, my speccing in the past has pretty much been: Go to third party site, copy build. I'm glad they're streamlining it b/c it seems a lot less clunky and updated.
Jul 12th 2010 11:11AM Of course it is, a huge part of roleplay is how your character reacts to other races and characters. I'd say it's an integral part of roleplay to have IN CHARACTER biases based on race, gender, age...Just like any real person.
Jul 9th 2010 4:12PM For rpers our characters are not ourselves. That's obvious in the sense that I'm not a draenei, but in the other sense that I share very few personality traits with my character as well. Rping is a lot like acting, and just because you're in a play with someone and the characters kiss, doesn't mean you and your fellow actor are involved somehow. Of course, there are always boundaries, and if you're secretly having an in character tryst that you're hiding from your significant other that can be a problem. I know many rpers who explain the situation to their spouses and key them into the character's storyline and most are okay with it.
Some aren't, and that's when you don't do it anymore.
There's alway the line of erotic rp, which many rpers, (like myself), don't participate in at all. I can definitely see how a SO might have an issue with sexual roleplaying in WoW...The kick is, no matter how serious a roleplayed in character relationship is, ERP is NEVER necessary. Even if the characters become intimate, many just employ a 'fade to black' technique in which the characters do what they do but the roleplayers themselves don't feel the need to be privy to it.
Jul 9th 2010 2:43PM Someone takes the game too seriously. Or, perhaps better put, doesn't take his relationships seriously enough.
