Over-used Characters.

I thought it would be fun to list a few with you guys.


The blind Hunters. On almost every occasion that I meet one, they're wearing a blindfold and move about by relying on their other senses.

What characters have you all seen repeatedly?

Overused? I think just about any character who portrays themselves as something bada$$. There are so many around...and the ones who are "evil" and try so hard to beat up on everyone. Then they whine because hardly anyone rps with them...

Also, drunk characters, throwing up on everyone. DISGUSTING!

Meh, drunks are okay. I played an alcoholic undead. Since he can't get the same effect from alcohol like living, he was pissed.
I really hate blind people who say they have only been blind 10 years out of their 25 year life so they can walk around streets and can do martial arts because they are so used to be blind. Blind RPers in general.
Blood elf people who try to RP as outcasts of the society, like the bad boys.
Blood elves in general.

Hippy, pacifistic, vegetarian night elves.

Gah, it's like nails on a chalkboard every time I see one, which is far too often (especially from priests and druids.)

What about Night Elves who honestly couldn't be assed about the war if it didn't touch Night Elven territory? =p

People who use the "split personality" excuse to play a sweet, giggling maid who can also beat the piss out of the most hardened warrior at the drop of a hat then revert back to a waifish innocent the next second.

Warlocks with enough power to blow up the world in a burst of demonic energy, with demons that can crush your skull without thinking...

To be fair, the crushing of skulls isn't an activity which depends on thought. >_>

I wish my old account hadn't been banned. I really should have saved my "Cliche Character types" write up.

Well, true, I guess I coulda worded it better. I meant demons who are so powerful a simple squeeze could crush your skull; they wouldn't even have to try.

And I do too. You probably have the best cliché character ideas here.

The super zealous, over religious paladin/priest.

While in the Cathedral Square area, some girl was RPing as a 10 year old who apparently knew all these vulgar words, and then she said she'd kill me and eat me. She also said that she tore someones arm off earlier that day, and then her eyes turned pink. I don't even...

But yea, I see a ton of guards around...and people who walk around town in full battle armor. Why do you walk into a tavern covered head to toe in plate armor!?!?

Battle hardened warriors who don't have a single scratch on them.

Pandaren Monks! But I'll never get tired of them as long as they're played and handled well.

I'd personally like to see a Pandaren who goes overboard on the "Preserve the Balance" philosophy. It seems like a concept ripe for shenanigans. "Balance in all things! ...Even sobriety. -hic!-"

House cat druids.

You know, the attention starved people who butt into your RP with their noggenfoggered cat form druids and do nothing but rub up against people's legs, purr and meow? Generally being distracting?

I see them far too often for my liking.

Have you seen some of the crap that goes on in Stormwind?!

To be fair to this... that's kind of why plate armour exists. To prevent cuts and wounds.

As for me... I think the thing I'm getting extremely tired of seeing is... apologist Scarlet roleplayers - I think a person RPing a part of the Scarlet Crusade that wasn't touched by the overarching crazy shouldn't be an apologist for the actions of the Crusade at large. It's just annoying seeing a member of the Crusade apologizing to warlocks and Death Knights and the like...

... and on that note. Warlocks who march around Stormwind letting everyone know they're clearly a warlock.

Just... just needs to stop.

Oh, need I forgot. DKs who wear fancy robes, and for that matter, blood elf dks. Blood elf DKs can be good, but former san'layn traitors and just. Argh.

Warriors out in the world don't have their armor on 100% of the time.

I'll give you that - but how often does something occur while bathing?

(I didn't add sleeping or bar fights because I'm giving those to you... bathing is the only one I can think of).

If your character has been battling Orcs for 15 years, it is reasonable to assume some damage was sustained in the process.
