Wyrmrest Accord is a great Roleplaying server with tons of active players on Pacific Standard Time, opened on 1/16/09. Many of the specific events and activities on this page are out of date.
Roleplaying on the Server
While at first it may seem that little RP occurs, it only takes a short while for a good Roleplayer to find a group or guild to roleplay with. Most common RP you can find is in Taverns or if you can, find a guild to join up with. It's always good to have a MRP (MyRoleplay) or something of that matter, so people will know you want to roleplay, of course.. There are two distinct factional cultures (as most servers have) with the perspective amounts of RP measuring about the same, but expressed through different mediums. Both factions schedule regular events, mainly to try and show how 'superior' they are to the other faction. This is owed to the mass exodus of Roleplayers from RPPvP servers and a good number from the other Roleplaying realms. From the beginning there was a great interest in fostering an active and connected Roleplaying community on the server, and has been since the server first started up.
Alliance side has great roleplaying, especially in Stormwind city. While some of its denizens are a smidge lax in their application of the lore, it is nevertheless conducive to a good time. Joining a guild typically increases the quality chance that you will be able to start your roleplay experience from the very moment you start.
Horde side is slightly more clannish. You won't get into any respectable guild if you don't fit the qualifications required. There are a lot of race-only guilds on the hordeside, Blood-Elf only guilds, Forsaken-only guilds, such as Scythe of Sylvanas and the myriad of Blood Elf House guilds. If you look in Silvermoon City or Orgrimmar, you will a large expanse of roleplayers for the Horde-side. Silvermoon City mostly contains Blood Elf roleplayers, whereas Orgrimmar will have a much more diverse crowd, including most of the Horde races, primarily centered around the Wyvern's Tail in the Valley of Honor.
There are some rather unconventional options for Horde Roleplaying as well. An Open Mic, which allows players to tell stories or roleplay the voice of their character instead of just typing out everything their character says. Always great fun. Though not a requirement to roleplay on Wyrmrest Accord at all.
Public Channels generally are more OOC (Out of Character) than /say or /yell but some people may stay in character in General or Trade to find World events, or they're Heavy Roleplayers.
- /RP and /OOC exist on both factions. /RP takes place in a lot of places around the world, while /OOC is still OOC.
- WorldRP is an IC channel for the Alliance.
- "guardDispatcher" is an IC channel to report injuries or crimes for the Alliance.
- "wranet" is the Horde's roleplay channel.

The Earthspear Tribe - The Earthspear Tribe is regarded as Wyrmrest Accord's first all-Tauren roleplaying guild, and is still active after three and a half years. They are responsible for hosting the weekly "Story Circle" event which encourages members of the Horde roleplaying community to tell stories they create in front of an audience of fellow roleplayers. They are currently recruiting new members despite a heavy bout of inactivity due to the Mists of Pandaria beta and other obligations in many of its members.
Huojin - Huojin is known as one of the horde's most popular exclusive-race guilds. They're the main All-Pandaren Roleplaying guild for the server. They're responsible for giving Pandaren-roleplayers a good home within the community. Most other guilds hate the idea of a "Panda" guild, but a lot of the veteran and critically-acclaimed roleplaying guilds have embrace their idea and are allies with the guild. Look out for them, they won't be going anywhere for a very long time.
Tirisfal Theatre Troupe - A small, but slowly growing roleplaying guild centered around performing plays in-character, as well as hosting several entertainment-related events throughout the months. Though small in number, they've pulled off hilarious shows such as "Hellsqueal", a spoof of Garrosh Hellscream's career as warchief performed at Razor Hill to embolden the Darkspear Rebellion. They are led by Irreverent and Atos.
