    RP Servers for WoW Classic

    Do you think they'll be a thing? Assuming they will be, I certainly wouldn't mind being able to go back and roleplay an orc character in a Post-WC3 Thrall Horde.

    If playerbase can support it, I guess there will be at least few.

    100% certain there will be one or two full ones at launch.

    I believe we'll get one pr. region but I don't have any faith in the roleplay that would be developing there. I have too much of a paranoid mind that I believe there's going to be A LOT of people who act like, or subtly act like they know what is going on - prophecy RP.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!

    Fair enough, I just hope I can use the RPG Guide book canon in roleplay, a lot of very valuable information (i.e. ages/lifespans, culture, etc) and it's a shame that it's been de-canonized.

    We still use the lifespans on RP servers. And we will keep so until they add an updated one.

    What I meant more was beyond the guidebook.

    About how people mysteriously knows what dwells in Outland, what taunts await in the cold north and so on.

    Mock them IC for it. Insist that Draenor is nothing but shrooms and that Arthas is dead.

    It’d be interesting but I don’t see RP being anywhere near as popular as on live.

    Horde RP won’t exist for the most part without Blood Elves and those who got into Orcish RP via Garrosh’s ideals. Trolls will have less material to work with and Tauren RP is rare as it is.

    The Alliance might see something though, as the Alliance we saw in Vanilla was quite different to what it is today. Plus RP in Teldrassil will be possible again.

    I'm curious how Blizz will handle the Classic realms in general. Will they go back to the PVE server and PVP server?

    Oh, I have thought of that approach a lot but still. It is just one of those, 'ugh' moments. A little like when people on live celebrates an event that hasn't technically been ended until next patch/world first (depending on server attitude).

    Oh yeah, to be fair though, it will be slightly difficult considering a lot has happened since Vanilla. However, I'm sure most people will adjust and I'll personally be happy to see a Horde where Orgrimmar looks less metal and spiky and isn't 80% elves.

    Trolls will pretty much have everything they have now, canonically Zandalar and all of the loa we encounter on the island would still be present, just not in game. Plus you have a lot you can add from the RPG handbooks.

    Or people preparing for unreleased raids (granted they will be staggered), raving about how they gather equipment suited to slay the reanimated frost wyrm, or the princess of bugs and whatnot.

    I would believe them to play it safe for now, only one type.

    The RPG handbooks are still non-canon. The time period of Vanilla wouldn’t change that.

    I hope there is a RP pvp server.
    If you take the wings off of a fly, is it a walk?

    Is MoonGuard still that bad? jesus i quit wow years ago and the rep was horrid however i enjoyed my rp time there other then Goldshire lol. I really hope we see a new RP classic server though, it would be nice to bring out my inner roleplayer again after all these years.

    I just hope they don't make too many servers that later end up empty. 1-2 RP servers should be enough imo. Remember there's no RPPvP servers so most players will likely start on PvP anyway.
