Nov 12th 2011 12:47PM I've never been a fan of leveling professions since it is boring to me so I just sell whatever happens to be the valor boe once a week.

Sep 7th 2011 11:55AM When I first started playing wow I started off on an rp server and I had a great time rping in an rp guild. Then one day I saw a guy that had a really cool looking weapon and an awesome looking set of gear. When I asked him where he got those things he told me that they came from Naxx (which was relevant content at the time).
Being both relatively new to the game (and to mmos in general) AND an rper you can only imagine how little I knew about actually playing the game since the most I ever did in terms of pve was quests, and not very many of them. All I knew what that I wanted to have fancy rp gear so I set out to reach the level cap.
After finally hitting 80 I spent a good deal of time being "that guy" in heroics, you know, the total noob wearing questing greens that does less dps than the tank and probably has no clue what he is doing. Even though I thought being level capped and hitting buttons was good enough I came to realize that it obviously wasn't but with the help of google and random people who wanted me to suck less I learned that there were rotations, stats, and add-ons such as recount and DBM that help greatly.
After finding out about those things I slowly started sucking less and less and even started joining pug raids to get experience with them. Downing a few bosses was nice and all but because I only pugged raids I never got to see any of the higher up bosses who had the coolest looking weapons most of the time. When I realized that I won't be seeing higher up bosses (or 25mans that have even neater looking things) by just pugging raids I left my quite life of rping to join a raiding guild.
Fast forward a year and a half, now I'm in one of the better guilds on my server, have that fancy gear I have always wanted, and I'm one of the best dps in my guild. Now I find it funny that I started raiding for cool gear to rp in even though I don't rp as much as I used to. I guess you can't have it all huh?
tl;dr I raid for rp gear.

Oct 30th 2010 7:13PM Back when my friend was trying to talk me into playing wow (specifically alliance with him), he was showing me all these towns, the first of them being stormwind. There I spotted a guy with two large swords on his back and I asked my friend "Are those two handers? how is he doing that?" and he told me about a warrior talent called titan's grip. I thought that was the most badass thing I have ever seen and decided to play a warrior just for it. I did have to learn how to play arms so I could pvp but hooray for the new patch, now I never have to not dual wield over sized weapons ever again!
Jul 20th 2010 2:10PM *get good shiny new gear
don't sacrifice me to the typo gods!
Jul 20th 2010 2:09PM Where did anyone get the idea that rpers don't want to raid? As an rper I saw raids as a good place to good shiny new gear and weapons for rp. It IS pretty time consuming but I feel that it great to be able to do both on one server.
May 30th 2010 7:10PM As much as I enjoy rping, the most I ever do is show up and "ride" other people's rp. No real story or consistency (as in I'll act differently at different times and maybe get killed for fun) I'm thinking of race and name changing and giving it a try for real but not sure on how to go about doing that.
