I wouldn't want to play on a roleplay server, too restricted in what I am allowed to say.

Oh well. I love the seriousness of roleplay, and hate the PvP. Well, it was worth a try (like my Gap game).

The PvP is my favourite part of the game. It's the only way to really measure yourself against other human players!

For me, and this is not a criticism of others, I love to immerse myself in a fantasy world. The reward is to see my character grow, to see him interact with others in the world and just to explore. That's why I love RP. Story: Two nights ago I am exploring a region with windmills full of undead. Finding it difficult to find a particular undead npc. So I run into a female orc player and ask her if she had seen this character. This player had her character respond as a low-intelligent orc and lead me around as though she was confused. In the end she couldn't help me. But that's not the point - the point is that for several minutes I 'lived' my character. It was great.

I've not even reached level 20 yet, so I'm not really fussed about PvP. To be honest though, I don't see myself going too far down that road. If it's gamer one-upmanship I'm after, I'll just play Halo. I really like questing in groups, but I've only done small quests so far. I've got my first dungeon quest, but it's still red. Might try that one at the weekend with some clan buddies.

I quite like the idea of the role-play servers. I didn't really understand what it entailed initially, but I may start off my Tauren in one. One thing I do know though, is that you can't have Horde and Alliance characters on the same server. I've also been advised to stick to the Alliance until I know what I'm doing, as Horde players tend to a) be very good and b) take things quite seriously.

I'm not really sure about that. I've not noticed any particular difference in skill level between horde and alliance, but horde do tend to take things more seriously, so I stick to alliance. There are few things more annoying than getting into a group only to find you're among a bunch of people who take themselves too seriously, and expect you to do the same.

Actually, you can have horde and alliance characters on the same server; I had a night elf and a Forsaken.

The server I am on needs Horde players - the horde are outnumbered 2 to 1. Too many Night Elves, as well.

The Horde are always outnumbered, although it's only about 60/40 on Runetotem. Darnassus is practically deserted at the moment, whether this is because of a decline in Night Elf numbers or because of the closing of the auction house I don't know.

Great idea, I'll do it when I get home. Your guy looks scary, although that is somewhat offset by what looks like a baby seal in the bottom corner there.

Played a lot of WoW at the weekend. I'm level 23 now and did my first dungeon. I accidentally ninja looted one of the bosses though, and was roundly chastised by the group. Lucky I was with guild-mates or I could have been in a lot of trouble. At least I understand the looting system now Embarassed

Thinking over the idea of a TCTC Guild, I realised that we could use the Land's own rank system: Eoman (I don't remember if this is the right singular term), Haft, Warhaft, First Haft, Hiltmark, Warmark, Lord, High Lord, ur-Lord.

I've shamelessly poached the idea from this old Diablo Guild I stumbled across: The Lords of Revelstone

Great ideas, Nav. Smile

The baby seal image is the 'passive' option button for my summoned demon.

I have no idea about where the prefix came from, but in this instance I didn't quite understand what was going on with the 'need & greed' looting system.

I'd gathered from other group quests that if someone finds a green item, you get the choice to either pass on it or make a dice roll for it. In need & greed when a green or above item is found, each player looks at it and if they need it (i.e. they can use it and it's better than their current item) they type 'n' and if they just want to sell or disenchant it, they type 'g'. If everyone greeds, you all roll. If anyone needs, they roll and the greeders don't. It's a fair system, as long as nobody abuses it, but it is a bit confusing.

It's less important for a 'bind on equip' item, as you can just trade it to the person who needs it as long as you don't actually put it on. The real problem is with 'bind on pickup' items, which can only be sold to a vendor or disenchanted. In my case the timer on the dice roll made me panic, I glanced at the item (a pretty good cloth belt that I could wear at my level) thought I might need it and rolled. It turned out that the belt I already had was better (the +attributes were better for my class anyway) and another party member really did need it. I won, it was bind on equip, the party went mad. The guy I'd screwed over was okay about it though as this was just his alternative character, he'd already trained his first to level 60. Lesson learned though.

The easiest way to go about it is, if the roll pane appears, have a good look at the item and if you would equip it right now (or would if you weren't a level or two too low) say 'n' and roll. If aren't going to equip it, say 'g' and either pass or wait for everyone else to say 'g' before you roll. Simple Twisted Evil

Anyway, here's my dude looking all shadowy and rogue-like:


I've decided that the game looks best when played at around dawn:

Loremaster, your char looks a bit like Raziel from the Soul Reaver games.

WoW sounds a little more involved than what I'd want from a game; I'm really more of a single-player person anyway, and that whole item-collecting thing sounds a little complex. Guild Wars just randomly assigns each item to a party member (and they can be traded straight away, anyway).

I've never played Soul Reaver, so it is hard for me to comment. I will check into it, though.
