Really? My main rogue is a Quel'dorei from an alternate timeline, but I don't think I ever got raged at about it. You poor thing. D:

I have.. a few elitists on the realm. Anything remotely Elven gets shot, let alone the more creative Elven characters.
Then again.. we did have a full Violet Dragon Flight at some point in Silvermoon, which even I found a bit... much.
To each their own in my book, though.

Having only read the first post to this thread and seeing as there are like 12 pages of comments and it being 12am for me. I'll keep this short and sweet.

I play both Alliance and Horde and in the end in my opinion it doesn't matter what side you're on you'll come across dick heads on either side. If you PVP you'll automatically hate the other side. There will always be trolls. 9-18 year old kids with no jobs saying you're a noob. There will always be gold farmers. There will always be that guild you hate. There will always be Lore addicts and people complaining your RP is incorrect because it's not lore specific. And there will always be one side bitching the other has better/more perks then they do. There will always be someone saying one class/race/faction is better then another. Racism/Sexism/classism its alive and well in WoW and I don't see it going away. Ever.

On the 'Horde get all the evil quests' topic from a while back, I just did the Thousand Needles quest chain for the gnomes that involves trying to swindle the centaurs out of their oil reserves with fake gold, then murdering them and taking it anyways when they see through the ruse. Made me feel kinda skeevy.

a) Would be playing Horde if they didn't have Blood Elves (or played Horde pre-BC)


My main was an orc, then a troll, then I stuck with blood elves. I got really annoyed with the poor quality graphics of orc and troll females after a while, honestly, compared to belves. They looked so dated :\ If Horde didn't have belves, though, it wouldn't matter. It was where my friends were, so I'd have stuck with it.


b) Play a horde race other then Blood Elf as their main

My mains when I left WoW were a troll and a blood elf.

Honestly, I hated a large portion of the orc/troll/tauren community on Moon Guard for the most part. A good many of them felt they were 'better' than those that played blood elves, and I just don't really understand why someone would judge your value as an individual or a roleplayer based on what races you like to play. Didn't help that my blood elf was married to a troll. No matter that there was 3 years of roleplay behind it, it'd never be good enough for some people.

The Horde version with goblins is pretty much identical.

Clearly Blizzard wants us to understand that tiny people are just inherently greedy bastards, regardless of political affiliation.

@Saerra: I have to admit, my first reaction to anyone claiming to be a dragon in WoW RP was, and would still be if I were still playing, "orly." Not that I'm against dragons, and they certainly show up in humanoid forms often enough in the Warcraft 'verse, but...people have a tendency to play dragon characters as I-win-any-conflict-automatically characters, which is bullshit regardless of your lore. We are not here to listen to how awesome you are; take it somewhere else.

Fortunately, it's quite easy (and plausible) for someone hearing someone else claiming to actually be a dragon in disguise to think said person is a loony and treat them as such, defusing the problem since, well, what are they going to do about it? Turn into a dragon and eat me? No? I thought not.

Hmmm, well the Story behind the guild was pretty well done. Just.. not everyone played by their rules and did what you described as the 'automatic win feature'.

Turn into a dragon. Hmmm... Vial of sands.

Does it actually count as a mount? (For your achievements, I mean.)
Not looked into due to my main having enchanting/ tailoring. My alchemy alt would have to level archaeology from.. ehm.. 0 >.> <.<

I tried really, really hard to get the vial of sands.

If you have amazing luck, you're looking at probably 12-18 hours :|

I never did get it, even though I got 2 canopic jars.

Zin'Rohk, so disappointed.  I don't think I'll ever get it again (had the original and RP'ed with it.)  Maybe with the new patch (4.3) I'll reskin one of my swords with it...

I already got a few grouses on that new changes coming. All the stuff I'd LIKE to use.. long gone or never got. Then there are the things that are no longer in the game (I want to put my rogue in something simple like Blackened Defias Leathers..which don't exist anymore) AND you have to stay in the same category.. so no Burning Gem diadem for my pali because the item I want to do it on is a mail item, and no 'eyepatch' for my hunter (eye patches are leather items so far..been looking)

Not your fault. I suffered from the same problem as everyone else who is an 85. There is only so much space one has. Like the Blackened Defias alternatives.. you can get a similar chest.. BUT they are all low level quests long ago done. :(

When I read that change was incoming on the Escapist I found myself glad I'd pre-emptively removed the temptation it would create. I already sold the majority of my RP gear and stuff when I quit the game, so I'd have nothing to reskin if I went back, meaning the change does nothing to me. Hooray no temptation to return to the game~

Blizz has said in an interview that they're looking into bringing back the older armor in some fashion.  For my Rogue, I want the assassination set, and Deathmantle, the tier five, back in Burning Crusade, the last time they had roguish armor.

And I admit to an inordinate fondness for the tier four Warrior, Warbringer.

Is it just me or is the odd number armor sets for the Warrior, or just melee in general, look dorky, but the even numbered ones look decent to cool?

Also, I still have the DK starter items, the greens and the blues, which are still the coolest looking armours.

Most of the armor sets look kinda lame. Windwalker for rogues looks STUPID.

I am in the process of collecting my Death Mantle, that was the best rogue set ever...before that it was Bloodfang.

So, before the power went out at our house due to the Hurricane (forcing me and my fiancee to visit family for a day or so), I did something I thought was going to be very stupid. Spent 12K for a new weapon, (the L359 purple blacksmith).. but then I started doing Cataclysm heroics I couldn't before.. and I think I've completed five heroics that I've never before :)
