I work hard to get my characters good gear. I also enjoy RP. I often see "Elite Shadowmaster Assassins" or whatever title people want, on a level 10, or something.
I usually state in my MRP, that my character is about as powerful as their ilvl (at this point, most of them are 520), indicating that anyone below that ilvl, below level 90, or below their 'capability', is in direct danger from them in combat. I don't duel for actual combat, but is it fair for me to request that assumption to be made?
Anyone can 'say' that their character has 'done X' or a 'veteran of Y', but I feel that having actually completed certain tasks ought to allow more leeway.
On that note, is it fair for lower level characters to simply 'claim' they can kick your raid gear decked 90, because it's in their description?
Certainly, anyone can choose not to RP with anyone else. Which seems more fair, though?
On another note, should my personal accomplishments account for anything IC'ly? If I've completed Heroic Raids (while current), completed specific content on other characters that are difficult, etc?
