Feb 21st 2011 9:45AM When you're making a half breed character, ask yourself why you are making one. Are you interested in the racial dynamic of never being able to fit in somewhere, are you interested in the idea of having to proof yourself to two races or are you just trying to figure out a way to make your character more interesting?
If you're going to play a half breed, make sure the character is an actual character and not just a half breed. I can't recount the amount of half elves I've seen that bring up their heritage every ten seconds.
"My pointed ears? Oh yes, I'm a half elf. That's right, I am half elven! Can you imagine that!? A half elf! Isn't that just terrific!"
"Well, what kind of things do you like to do?"
"Well, half elf things, of course!"
Of course, your heritage should play a part. Maybe you were always struggling for your father's family's approval. Maybe they didn't like the fact their son married a human girl and you have to live up to that. You're hard working and take everything in stride. Maybe you're an orphan, raised by your human parent while the elf peaced out. You could be curious about that parents and seek to be like them, even if you never met them. Whatever you do, don't go on about being a half elf every ten seconds. That's not a character, that is a gimmick.
Jan 9th 2011 11:32PM You aren't missing a year. Blizzard has stated that some of the construction, changes have been going on during Wrath, but they couldn't just make patches to show those things. Places like Stormwind were -always- the way they are now, minus the park and changes that came from Deathwing, we as roleplayers, need to retcon ourselves a bit to make it work. I believe they said something along the lines of suspension of disbelief.
There wasn't a timeskip, things just happened. We went from Wrath to Cata and while the construction just appeared outta nowhere one day, it wasn't like that for our characters, it has been going on for a while now. How long? I'm not sure, but we didn't just wake up one morning and go "OH LOOK, A NEW ORG!"

Nov 28th 2010 2:57PM To those asking about timeskips, etc:
There wasn't a time skip. We went straight from Wrath into Cata. A lot of the events going on have been going on for quite sometime, like the construction of Light's Hope and other places. When Org caught on fire, there was reconstruction and there is still construction going on right now in the city. The old world stayed the same throughout, though, because Blizzard couldn't release little patches all the time to show the work in progress. There was a Blue post I wish I could find that said something about suspension of disbelief and how we just have to work with what we are given, as role players.
But things like earthquakes, floods and what not, I believe those came from Deathwing and those things basically happened over night, if you will and I believe when Deathwing came, the peace between Horde and Alliance was tossed away, causing a lot of the fighting going on at the moment, but I could be wrong, since I haven't read The Shattering yet.
Nov 28th 2010 2:50PM Considering Deathwing is flying around, torching random zones, it's safe to say we know that he's out there and he's around.
