I would like to see more quests with choices other than "kill the enemy". Or maybe a DK starting chain that gives you your ability points, but lets you play like Fraser's "Flashman" character ( OK ... my boss is a vicious psycho. I'll play along with this crap, pretend to do the work, and either kill his ass, or just get the F out the second I get a chance ).
Most classes and even races have their morals "kind of" placed upon them. Like NE being told not to kill the peaceful critters in Darnassus, druids curing critters and plants, warlocks having to track, summon, enslave and kill demons, rogues stealing, and so on. I'm sure there are a great number of PCs that hang around the cities shopping and making things and priests that spend most of their days healing and trying to "save" the baddies from evil. This is World of WARcraft after all- and so there is a war to be waged- the question is do you wage that war against the the true evils or every critter and misunderstood murloc and elemental out there.I've grown my druid to respect the natural as much as possible and I've given him a hell of a back story to motive my play- and believe me when he reached a task/enemy too strong to be whipped he will return with vengeance! Is he a hero? Hell yes! And I too have stopped taking many of the kill semi-innocent animal quests for this very reason. If some nut ball NPC wants me to go kill 20 bears for some burgers because he is "too busy" well he's not going to get my time- but that scourge camp over yonder? Yeah- give me minute I'll bring you some heads.
From Wictionary:AdjectiveViolent Involving extreme force or motion. A violent wind ripped the branch from the tree. Involving physical conflict. We would rather negotiate, but we will use violent means if needed. Likely to use physical force. The escaped prisoners are considered extremely violent. Intensely vivid. The artist expressed his emotional theme through violent colors. My charachter does use extreme force, and motion. My charachter is involved in physical conflict. My charachter is likely to use physical force. My charachter's tabard is intensely vivid. By every definition, my charachter is violent.
When I'm questing and I see a Horde and Alliance player fighting, I watch. However, if the Horde player is losing, I help out. Now maybe the Horde player deserved to die and the Alliance player was just defending himself from the jerk. Who knows./shrug
The way I see it, if it's red, it's going to come after me whether I want it to or not.Yellow mobs I leave alone.
I think of this like this: My char didn't signed for that. He just wanted to live peaceful life with his family and friends just like we want. But then Athras came to Quel'thalas, destroyed Sunwell and killed much of his best friends, his mother and one of two brothers. So now he's seeking revenge and to do this he must train, wheter it's on target dummies, animals or humans and elves. Is he violent? Yes! Is he evil? Probably yes as he cares about nothing besides revenge. But he wasn't violent and evil from start of his life, maybe if he was living somewhere else he wouldn't become who he is now?
