ART Ep. 18: Experimenting with Role Playing (feat. Odynus)

Last week we gave a little preview of the small ways Ben and I look at our characters. This week we bring in Odynus to dive all the way into roleplaying. It has been a topic I've been anxious to touch on because it, for me, has one of the more rewarding aspects in the game.

We all hit low points in our playing. Times where it gets a little harder to justify the monthly subscription fee and one of the best ways to fight this is to try out new things. It's a good time to try out PVP, try your hand at raiding, or roll a new class. I can say for me I've tried all of them and the only experience that truly transformed the game for me was trying out roleplaying for the first time.

That is not to say it is for everyone or perfect. I think we touch on plenty of weirdness and pitfalls in the episodes. However all aspects of the game come with their negatives, the importance is that whatever you get from the positive outshines it. This episode was a fun way to introduce a new aspect to the game and I hope it compels a few people out there to give it a go.

Update: Also we discuss this picture on the show... so I should pry include it.
