Wyrmrest, tell me about yourself.

There's a very peculiar OOC mentality - "I play 'Old Horde' races, therefore I am superior to those who don't" - running rampant on this server. It's dumb.


I don't feel that way at all. All I feel is that I can't get any RP. :[ So many occasions of me talking to people and being COMPLETELY unacknowledged. It's saddening a lot of the times. Not a single person in the tavern at Silvermoon would talk to my Orc, except of course, the awesome Tauren working there, I would tell you his name but I forgot it. I'd stay on Horde if there were more people like him. :D

No one plays Orcs because Orc players are the absolute worst.


And THIS is why I don't get RP. People like this. Gonna go out on a limb and say you're the top of the hierarchy of RP. I chose to be an Orc because the Orcs are my favorite Horde race, not to mention they're fun to RP because they're not set to a single stereotype (except horribly stupid according to the Alliance). Tauren is in second place.

Have you tried the Wyvern's Tail in Orgrimmar? (Located in the Non-Laggy Valley, not sure what its name is) I see quite a few RPers there, actually as of late I've been seeing a lot more RP in Non-Laggy Valley.

Are you sure you're not letting your contempt for Blood Elves seep into your persona?


It is "seeping into my persona". I can't RP, what I came to the server to do, because nobody responds to Garrok. I'm not gonna be one of those guys who does the attacks on Blood Elves. Just not going to try and, well... hold them in my highest regards.

Actually yeah, me and some Goblins had a great conversation about Engineering. I don't see too many people in there often though.

Activity is spotty. But when it's busy, it is busy. Sometimes I just sit around OOC and watch the RP.

Alright, a couple things about your post. I understand people see us as the most hostile race, but if I'm not acting hostile then there's probably no hostility intended. When I RP, I always wear civilian clothes, try to RP with people that seem interesting.

I'm also saying that the majority of people I've TRIED to RP with have been Blood Elves, I get shot down every time. Even asking simple questions like "D'ya have any idea wut des two are doin'?" on my Darkspear Troll, gets ignored. I've had great RP with Trolls, Taurens, and Goblins, and not a single Blood Elf. Hell, I even had a long story with a Troll once, and that helped build my character even farther. But these Blood Elves just ignore me and make me go back to my corner of the room until another "un-beautiful" race comes through the door.

Also, what's with these attacks on me? I'm giving my honest opinion here and you're just telling me that I'm wrong and people hate me because I'm an Orc.

I would rp with you on my belf. Provided you didn't post at me when I'm in pvp mode and vanishing into bgs/arenas all the time *nods* Most of the people who can coax me into rp usually play orcs and trolls, tbh. Not making excuses for people who've ignored you, but some of us don't particularly care who's playing what as long as rp is happening. There's quite a few people who rp belfs out in orgrimmar that don't restrict their rp based on race, jadoth is one I can think of, mourne is another.

They're out there, just keep posting if someone seems interesting and don't let their race make you hesitate in wanting to rp.

Edit: That was at Garrok.

No, you just put one on each eye, added some material, and called it a hat.

Ha! I'm on to you...

I RP 24/7 on here. (All 20 of my toons on WrA!) The problem is I don't stay in one spot. One minute you may find me in Stormwind the next Outlands.

straight up not acknowledge your existence


Just because two races hated each other in the past doesn't mean I can be completely ignored by all Blood Elves on all of my Horde characters. Conflict always makes good roleplay, also.
