Diplomacy: A New WoW Profession
Think about all the possibilities this profession could bring to the game. It could make the game more dynamic as adding a Diplomacy profession to the game would enable your character to interact more with the opposite faction, as well as become involved in political affairs of the kingdoms.
Ideas for implementation:
-Grant diplomatic immunity on a temporary basis
-Enable opposite factions at high levels of diplomacys to engage with the opposite faction and complete quests on a limited basis
-Enable the ability to group with the opposite faction at 675 diplomacy on a limited basis
-Limited communication with the opposite faction (based on racial dialects)
-Daily quests related to political relations within your own faction and also with the opposite faction on a limited basis
-Become involved with the political affairs of a kingdom within your faction, aka diplomat / member of parlament etc
-Make decisions which will affect the look of your capital city (aka, enact clean up the streets laws, and other things that will build and tear down parts of the city, these laws / repeal of laws would increase taxes in the city (vendor fees go up and down by small %s))
-City could become trashy in parts due to not passing and enforcing laws (Note: Much of what goes on in the cities due to your diplomatic / political choices would be phased to you, but not to other players to negatively affect their prefered gameplay)
-The profession could grant vanity items, and rarely items that affect character power
There could be all sorts of ways to level it up including mini games, daily quests, profession related drops in dungeons / monsters. Other mini games like play cards and win against politicians in the city, run errands within the city, stop / prevent crime within the city, go on foreign relation trips to horde cities throughout Azeroth (not just capital cities) which would give you temporary immunity, (yellow color / blue on a timer) to complete the task.
