RP in WoW.

Post by Pags » Wed Feb 09, 2011 11:13 am

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone here has actually carried over their passion of RP to World of Warcraft? There's a mass amount of it available in the game itself, and some of it is brilliant. For those who haven't experienced it, most role players don't actually level, party or raid in character. That part of the game is kept OOC. They're IC around RP hubs such as Stormwind or Orgrimmar.

I've experienced a varied amount of RP in WoW, from criminal families claiming districts of Stormwind to military orcish factions such as the Kor'Kron undertaking battles against Alliance armies.

If anyone is interested in getting involved, send me a PM.

I understand many people find the aspect of RP in WoW odd, so if it's not your thing, don't slate it. I'm sure there are people who would mock LS-RP players for involving themselves in SA:MP RP and there's no need for a repeat on such comments.

So, anyone else add a little diversity to their MMORPG gameplay, or just grind?

Well, I'd like to find out how to roleplay in WoW, since that's unknown to me.
Do you have some screenshots, I'd really like to check some of roleplay?
And to answer your question, I haven't roleplayed in WoW, apart from some wedding thing, which was lame, and that wasn't on RP server.

Too many dickheads in my opinion. Plus, I really can't be assed to re-roll and re-level to 85 on a realm that I probably won't have any interest in later on.

However, I really have been interested in the RP aspect of wow.

I have one actually, will be taking more soon. This is a screen shot of the Kor'Kron's arrival in the Undercity.

By all means add me in game and I'll take you along to a hub. My name is Dakol on Earthen Ring, an orc warrior on Horde. The standard of RP is excellent in my opinion and a great place to learn. Orcish RP in itself is by far the most interesting and enjoyable. They basicly adopt spartan culture. For example on entry to the Kor'Kron, a RP guild, you'll have to duel one of the Warbound, a high ranking officer who will test your metal.

Right now my guild are going through a rather long event. We're currently in the Undercity making preperations to march on the Worgen this weekend. So this would be a good week to get involved if you're interested in learning and watching/taking part in a RP battle between the two factions.

As for the wedding, such things normally take place on Alliance. A lot of players RP in Stormwind. There's a guard, council, citizen base and so on. Where as on Horde, it's more gritty. More tavern brawls, a greater back story to characters in my opinion, there's more honour in day to day interaction.

The great thing about a RP realm is that it supports everything that a normal realm does, with great activity in PVP and Raids as well as offering RP. There's players who are completly OOC as any other realm, except you have another style of gameplay open to you.

As far as I've seen, the guys and girls I've RP'd with are great people OOC.

As I said before, if you're interested in trying it out one evening, add my character on ER, Horde.

Yeah, I've tried RPing on Defias Brotherhood and it was really fun to some point, but it turns out that the kind of roleplay /there/ is not exactly for me, even though I loved the theme of being an assassin / silent follower of some guilds on the human side. Defias Brotherhood saw a lot of attempts to create a fictional government and faction war in the alliance and it quite worked for short periods of time, though sadly guilds drop out, lose activity, or lose interest, and it reaches a breaking point when everything returns to `major silence` and random roleplay around Stormwind.

That looks pretty interesting. The only thing I'm weary about is having to get a whole other character to cap, gear him, and participate in roleplay events.

It's pretty cool if you're into the lore and all that. I play WoW, but I hate the lore fantasy theme to it. I only PvP... which I am a KING at.

I have played WoW, but never had the interest to RP in it.

Argent Dawn is an epic RP server, check their website out http://www.argentarchives.org/about, check out the Events Archive and Noticeboard. Some pretty sick shit.

I have, but I did it on a private server. It's better on a private server when there's an available administrator at all times to ban / kick someone that's doing something stupid. If you play on retail, you just have to ignore them, and most people go on role play servers to troll others.

I doubt it would take that much effort as we just need to change the effects to make them more realistic

The bad part is that you need to buy WoW. It's a great game and it would be exceptional if it was for free.
