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.)

    I'm having a small issue.

    I use Satrina Buff Frames and when MyRolePlay is enabled, the tooltip for every buff from that, is being overridden with the standard MRP player tooltip.

  • #927

    Feature Request:

    I would like to see the ability to strip color codes from MSP details, or have them properly implemented so the colors are visible, instead of seeing only color codes, with no color changes.

    Either way you go with this, I would like to see an option to turn off colors/strip color codes from names. I'm not a big fan of seeing colors that aren't supposed to be there.

    (This is mostly an issue with TRP2 users that add color codes to their names/profiles, which causes them to show up in the reader/tooltip/chat as "|cffxxxxxxsome |cffxxxxxxtext |cffxxxxxxhere", which, as you can see, is really hard ot read.)

    Mac to Windows profile transfer

    I just reinstalled WoW on my Windows partition and had to spend about 15 minutes figuring out why only one of my character profiles was successfully transferring from the Mac side.

    Turns out OS X and Windows don't register accents the same way, or something, so if your character name has a special character in it and you're trying to transfer from one OS to the other, you can't just copy the folder over. Instead, boot up WoW on the new install and log in to each character that has an accent in your name. This will create their new folders. Then, go to their folder from the old install and copy all the contents, and paste it into the new folder (overwriting the newer info). That should get all the profiles working fine.

    Hopefully this saves somebody else some trouble.

    Computer problems

    So I moved out of my moms house a while back and I've come back to copy off my MRPs (I can't remember any of them due to terrible memory) and something has happened to her computer while I was gone and now everything opens up Curse Client and it won't start WoW for me to get the MRPs off there so I was wondering if you could give me a step by step guide on what to do to save these MRPs so I don't lose them forever x.x I've opened up my programs and there wasn't a document with the MRPs on it...? Is it not saved in a document format that you can just open when you want?

  • #926

    I'm afraid not, you'll have to venture into the WTF folder in your WoW installation directory.

  • #921

    Is it possible to add some compatibility to TipTac so that it doesn't duplicate information in the tooltip? It says the level, class, and race twice.

  • #920

    Ive had mrp for a while but when i instaled the lastest update it suddenly stopped working and i cant get it on my account i was wondering if someone can help me

  • #919

    I made an account just to suggest this feature so I hope you see it.

    I would like for the physical information like height, weight and age to show in the tooltip. Especially height. And the best part is, you can make it purely optional. If people don't like it, they can just turn it off from the settings.

    But personally I would really like for them to show because I think that kind of information is important. And I should add that I've discussed this with a few of my friends and all of them agree this would be a good addition.

    Here's an example of what it would look like, though you might be able to come up with a better formatting:

    Name Surname
    Nickname: "Nick"
    Height: 6'1"       Weight: 192 lb        Age: 32
    Rank of <Guild>
    Player (Faction)                                                  MRP
    Level 90 Human Shaman (Player)
    Currently: Doing things.
                                                                     In Character

    I have a problem with MRP that I can't seem to fix. It seems that the MRP info for one of my characters is erased each time I logout because it is all gone each time I login with that character. What makes this strange is that this problem does not exist wiht my other character. Anyway, I have tried deleting the contents of my cache folder as well as deleting and reinstalling MRP to no avail. Help please. I am tired of typing all my info in each time I login.

    Will MRP soon have the ability to be seen cross realm?

  • #925

    It once was able to read cross realm, however due to an update on Blizzard's Part at the beginning of 5.4.7, this added realm names to the protocol to be more specific on who was who, which also rendered reading cross realm MRPs unavailable to the addon. There's not much I can do in the way of a work around for now, I'll have to keep prodding at it.

  • #916

    I updated today and I still cannot see who else has MRP, nor of course read their MRP's.  I can see mine w/o any flaws.  I'm on an iMac using OS X 10.8.5.

    I appreciate anyone's help.  Thank you, much! :)

  • #914

    Hi there. I seem to be having some problems with / mrp show <charactername> I do that and nothing comes up. At the bottom it just keeps saying "sending request, please wait" but nothing happens and it just shows a  blank profile. Am I doing something wrong?

    As far as I can tell, it's the CRZ stuff. You have to append the new -realmname suffix (i.e. -WyrmrestAccord) to the character name. If I don't, I get a message from MRP stating: "X doesn't appear to have an addon which supports MSP". Sometimes when I use the realm name suffix, I still get the same issue you do, but that may be due to distance between players.
