About MyRolePlay

MyRolePlay is a roleplaying UI AddOn for World of Warcraft, developed by Etarna at It lets you make a roleplaying “profile” about your character that other users of MyRolePlay (and other compatible “MSP” RP AddOns) can see in the tooltip and a more detailed window. It’s fast, light, and powerful.

  • Spot other roleplayers at a glance, see which RP AddOns they are using, and get a quick overview of their character in the tooltip!
  • Change your character’s name; add a last name—or whatever you wish!
  • Mark your preferred style of roleplaying (casual, full–time, beginner, or a custom style…), or your status (in character, out of character, being a storyteller…)
  • Exercise your creativity further—describe your character’s appearance! Eye colour, height, weight…
  • Give people a taste of your character’s story, if you wish—add biographical information like their age, hometown, birthplace, and maybe even some tidbits of history to make people hungry to discover more by interacting with your character and roleplaying with you? Or hide others’ biography, if you prefer to discover that kind of thing through interaction.

What if your character’s appearance changes, say when they wear different clothes, or shapeshift into different forms? No problem: simply add another ‘profile’, and just change the fields you want to be different in that alternate profile. Select freely between the default and alternate profiles to suit your character’s mood, dress, form and so on! If you name a profile after an equipment set (Blizzard’s, ItemRack or Outfitter) or a form (druid, shaman, warlock, priest or worgen) MyRolePlay can even automatically change profile for you when you switch!

MyRolePlay has tremendous scope for creativity. It’s extremely fast and flexible—a roleplaying AddOn that lets you express your character however you wish! Use it as an aid to roleplaying, fleshing out your character’s “feel” or just helping you stumble into more roleplay… how you choose to use it is up to you!

Editing your profiles

Bring up the Character Sheet (“C” by default), and select the new MyRolePlay tab underneath. Click on a field to edit it.

Alternate profiles management: + to add a new alternate profile, - to delete or clear the profile, R to rename it. Fields that appear dimmed out are ‘inherited’ from the default profile—simply select to Change the fields you want to modify from that.

Further options (such as a choice of units to display height/weight) can be found in the Interface Options, AddOns tab, under MyRolePlay.

Where can I see other people’s details?

When you mouseover someone who has MyRolePlay (or another compatible roleplaying addon), you’ll see some of the extra roleplaying details they added in the tooltip, plus if they use MRP or another RP AddOn such as GHI (GryphonHeart Items) or T (Tongues), which is a handy hint that they're a roleplayer!

Want more information about their character than the tooltip provides, like the full description or history (where applicable)? Target them and click on the “MRP” information button that appears by the target frame, to browse their profile in a resizeable description window. (Or set a key combination in Key Bindings to bring up that window, or: /mrp show <charactername> or just /mrp show when you have them targeted.) You can target yourself and view your own profile as it appears to others in there, if you like, and if you want to move the MRP button, right-click to unlock it, drag it where you want it, and right–click again to lock it in place.

(Users are reminded that your RP profiles are public content which may be seen by other players and Blizzard, and are subject to the Terms of Use, and policies of the realm(s) you play on. Please have fun and remember to exercise your creative freedom responsibly and respectfully.)

Fined tuned MRP, filed down all the little hiccups I could find. This'll be the final update for a while, until then, keep sending bug reports!

    I have no clue why, but for some reason MyRolePlay only partially works on my rogue.

    It literally works on every other character perfectly fine, same exact addons (or making it so that MyRolePlay is the only enabled addon). On my rogue, it simply doesn't display the "MRP" button next to peoples' portrait. It does if I load in next to someone, but if I move anywhere else, the new people I encounter won't display the button unless I reload. This only happens on my rogue - and reading over the comments, someone else had a similar issue with their rogue.

    Is there some strange issue with MRP only affecting rogues?

  • #899

    Hi i'm experiencing an issue where MRP simply dosen't save any data i put into it. If i log out it'll reset any info i write and nothing will be thier It's been VERY frustrating. I've got it up to date, i've tried rienstalling it multiple times. Someone please help been going on like this for weeks.

  • #898

    Another problem to report here that I didn't see scanning the comments below.

    Just on one toon for me, my MRP seems to be stuck on the name I'd typed in for a different profile. Doesn't matter if I delete the addon, reinstall, disable all other addons, delete Cache and WTF, etc. The name stays the same even if I make a new profile, delete the one using the stuck name, or change the stuck name to something else.

    All other toons the names work fine, but then again, I don't use multiple profiles for many of my other toons.

    I know you guys already have your hands full trying to fix the new patch's bugs, but just putting in my one issue to get it out there ^^;

  • #896

    I seem to be having an issue that, strangely enough, is only plagueing a single character. When I'm on any other character and click someone's portrait, their Myroleplay button shows up, but when I'm on my rogue, nothing appears at all. It's not a matter of them not having mrp installed because upon switching to a different character and clicking them, their button pops right up.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that didn't work. I did the same after deleting my wtf & cache folders but there was no change for my rogue. Just to clarify, it's not the information in the mrp that's not showing up for him. The portrait button for mrp isn't even appearing to access any of that in the first place. Any idea what could be amiss?

  • #897

    I know you can enable/disble addons for characters specifically. If you have the addon ACP you can see and toggle this while logged in. Otherwise from the character selection screen select the rogue then click adons and verify that addon is turned on for that character.  Hope that helps, just sounds liek the addon has been disabled for that character for some reason.

    tHe only other thing I could thnk of is if you have a differnt addon enabled for the rogue only that is interferig with this addon.

  • #895

    I'm having a weird issue. I have no other addons running except MRP, and both WoW and MRP are updated.

    I am able to select my own name and see the MRP button, and view my own profile. However, when I click on other players, no MRP buttons show up (I've spoken with several people about it who I tested it with who had MRP profiles, and they don't have the issue and they have the same version as I do. I even tried doing the /mrp show command on players that said they had MRP profiles, but it told me "(name) doesn't appear to have an addon that supports MSP" (not sure what MSP is..?).

    Two people I asked could actually view my MRP profile just fine, also. So I have no idea what's going on (and the first day I got back to WoW recently I could see other peoples MRP profiles, but after that day I've been having this issue). I have no idea what's wrong.

  • #891

    Having a small issue, mainly regarding MRP names, while I can see them when I hover over them. I cannot see them when they use /say, yet I can see my own with no problem. I do have the box in the interface checkmarked, is anyone else having this problem or is it just me. If it's just me, is there any type of fix for it, if not I am going to try and just completely wipe the folder after backing up in wordpad.

    Edit: Apparently, GHI is the cause of this happening. Not this, nevermind...

    Yep, this bug is caused by latest version of GHI. It's happening to Total RP 2 too. GHI's developer has been notified of this issue on its forum.

    EDIT : GHI's author has confirmed that an upadte fixing this issue is coming :)

    Having the same issue myself with MRP profiles and tooltips loading fine, but /say and emotes are not loading the full MRP names. Kind of glad I'm not alone, don't need to curse my computer. Haha

  • #892

    This was actually happening a couple weeks ago when 5.4.7 went live. MRP would still show profiles, but for some rason character names/surnames/titles aren't showing up in the chat fields. I'm pretty sure it's something Blizzard changed with their coding in addons handling data sharing, but I can't pin down exactly what.

  • #890

    Figured out the issue was with the LibMSP.lua file. Error in the coding, I apologize. It's been a hectic day. Try to fix a major break, something cracks elsewhere. Uploading as we speak.

  • #887

    Hi there. I'm having an issue where I can't see RP names in /say and /yell, though they show up in emotes just fine. The option is checked in the AddOn options, and I've tried disabling every other chat-related addon I can think of. Any advice?

  • #889

    Most likely another addon interfering. Try disabling *everything* except MRP and enabling them one-by-one (use Addon Control Panel, I suggest). I don't use the option normally, but it worked fine for me on a completely vanilla chat box.

  • #888

    I can't say much at the current moment. As of the time this post is made (And my knowledge of this being brought to me), the servers are currently down, so I'll have to test the issue some other time. Hopefully, the issue would have been resolved before any other patches are made from my end.

  • #883

    I'm still having a 'your mrp is out of date' message, and I just got done downloading the updated version (says uploaded 5 hours ago and it's 3am EST) so I assume I am up to date?  I still can't seem to see other persons profiles.
