Legion Roleplay

Role Play: Plot points in Legion so far Roleplaying over the course of an expansion can take a few different forms. When a new expansion hits, any information surrounding that expansion becomes a focus of roleplay for many players. But what about when we’re in the middle of an expansion and the story is evolving? Sure, some roleplayers prefer to ignore expansion events...

Role Play: Death Knight roleplay in Legion We haven’t really heard much from the Knights of the Ebon Blade since the end of Wrath. They had a fairly intense campaign in the Ruins of Andorhal, but that was it for story content. As far as Death Knight roleplay in the game went, stories were largely up to the individual player. It was...




Role Play: Monk roleplay in Legion Monks are a recent addition to World of Warcraft, making their debut in the Mists of Pandaria expansion. Although plenty of races can roll a Monk, their beginnings and the bulk of their history are firmly rooted with the Pandaren race. Monk roleplayers may be from different races, but after all that study with Pandaren...

Role Play: Warrior roleplay in Legion Warriors aren’t exactly one of the most convoluted classes on Azeroth. Let’s face it — they don’t deal with magic, they don’t have a particularly complicated history. Anyone can pick up a weapon and learn to use it, with enough training. For Warriors, it’s not really so much about rich, lore-heavy storylines. It’s more about...

Role Play: Mage roleplay in Legion Mage roleplay has been ramping up over the past couple of expansions. Where other classes might not have a particularly defined history behind them, Mages certainly do. And as far as WoW is concerned, the role of the Mage in Azeroth’s future is slowly becoming more important than ever. With the Kirin Tor in a...

Role Play: Hunter roleplay in Legion Hunter roleplay has never really been heavily focused on class — mainly because the class as a whole didn’t really have a ton of lore behind it. Sure, certain races have Hunter organizations out there. The Blood Elves have the Farstriders, the Night Elves have the Sentinels, the Forsaken have the Dark Rangers. But there...




Role Play: Priest roleplay in Legion Priests have been in the game since day one. But it’s always felt like there was a sense of both mystery and confusion to the class. While the idea of a Priest practicing the same powers of the Light as Paladins always made sense, Shadow Priests didn’t necessary follow the same logical path. Most of...

Role Play: Shaman roleplay in Legion Everything that is, is alive. Including, as it turns out, that planet you’re standing on. Shaman roleplay in Legion is interesting, largely because of the major revelations discovered at the onset of the expansion. As a Shaman, your character has always fought for the world – in Cataclysm that became a major necessity. Deathwing’s emergence...



Role Play: Rogue roleplay in Legion They aren’t practitioners of flashy magic, architects of some grand, universal design, nor members of any kind of army set on defending the universe. Rogues are a different breed entirely. They skulk in the shadows and strike with precision where needed…for a price. Sometimes that price is wealth, sometimes that price is power…sometimes it’s just...

Role Play: Paladin roleplay in Legion Paladins have always been warriors of the Holy Light. They’ve always fought for justice and good in the world. But in recent years, they’ve discovered far, far more about just what being a warrior of the Light entails, and about the Light itself. With the discovery of the Draenei and their naaru allies in Burning...

Role Play: Warlock roleplay in Legion Power. It’s a tempting thing, to have all the power in the universe. Warlocks walk a fine line with their allies, using powers wielded by the Burning Legion to work against it. Or are they? That’s what the world around you wonders, if you’re playing a Warlock character. Are you really working for good, or...

Role Play: Druid roleplay in Legion Legion has a slightly different dynamic than any other expansion before it. Rather than being grouped in hub areas according to faction, we’re being grouped by class. I’ve brought this up before, and mentioned that there are plenty of roleplay opportunities to be had…but what are they? Each class has its own storyline this expansion....

Role Play: Roleplaying Nightfallen or Nightborne I’m a huge proponent of roleplaying whatever you want within the context of World of Warcraft. So when someone asked me whether or not it was feasible to try roleplaying Nightfallen or Nightborne characters, my immediate answer was “Of course!” Knock yourself out. There’s no reason why we should feel like our imaginations or creativity...

Ashbringer Artifact
Role Play: Artifact weapons, Class Halls, and titles in roleplay Legion introduced a vast change in the leveling experience. Instead of being ushered through zones story by story, players can pick and choose their path. Since all four leveling zones scale to whatever level you happen to be, it doesn’t matter where you decide to go first. It’s a great change, and Legion is probably the...

Role Play: Horde roleplay in Legion The Alliance may have a lot to think about plot-wise this expansion, but the Horde has just as much going on – and none of it is particularly happy. Horde roleplay in Legion mirrors the Alliance. After all, the Burning Legion isn’t just a threat to one faction or the other; it’s a threat to...

Role Play: Alliance roleplay in Legion Now that Legion is out, it’s pretty clear that the Alliance have a lot to think about while combing the Broken Isles. Obviously the Burning Legion has returned, and Azeroth itself is in danger. That’s going to be a big concern to any roleplayer, whether Alliance or Horde. But for Alliance roleplay, it isn’t just...
