Without us wpvpers this server would be dead. So pick your evil. I can't get into rping. I tried, then found that the deepest level of rp I could accomplish was picking which guild I disliked the the most based on being a blood knight. The beauty of ED is that there is a little bit of something for everyone. It will never truly be just rp, pve, or wpvp. Embrace it. Maybe if there weren't so many rp elitists on this server, then more people would feel comfortable trying it.
Either way, I hope OP finds ED to be an enjoyable server, and isn't put off by the bad attitudes some people have displayed.
I don't mind non-RPers as long as they don't get in the way of RP (can't say I approve of OOC names, honestly), but this is just not true. This server clearly had great WPVP to begin with, or 'PVPers' wouldn't have came here.
