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.)

Hot patch time. It'll stop bugging you for an update now.

    Hey, I'm having a BIG Issue with my MRP. So everytime I log into a specific character, this being a Monk, my first and FAVORITE monk, my MRP is always getting wiped just on this character. I've tried reinstalling the addon numerous times, logging off and back on but still nothing is working. It's REALLY agrivating. Please Help!

  • #989

    Need to add older versions back such as ones for Wrath of the Lich King, alot of private servers still use wotlk so itd be nice if we had this addon for it.

    When the first pre-patch for Warlords of Draenor arrived, in which the log in screen changed and it was recommended to disable add-ons, I disabled MyRoleplay. I did not want to corrupt my character's profiles or anything else for that matter.

    I have yet to install any newer, updated version of MyRoleplay considering some of the issues people have been having below - one of which involves having all the data reset. I would prefer to retrieve all my typed information about my characters before I am to risk an installation of a new version.

    Is there a way to retrieve the information alotted to the profiles of various characters of mine through the game's directory and hence, add-ons folder? And if so, how would I go about doing that?

    Hello there :)

    Your MyRolePlay data are stored in your WTF folder in your WoW directory. Your information are stored at a character level, which means you'll have to backup your MyRolePlay.lua file for each one of your character. This file can be found in World of Warcraft/WTF/Account/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NAME/YOUR_CHARACTER_REALM/YOUR_CHARACTER_NAME/SavedVariables/MyRolePlay.lua (you don't need to backup MyRolePlay.lua.bak as it is just the previous version of the file, automatically renamed by WoW as a "backup").

    If you just want to backup all of your information for all of your add-ons, you might as well just backup your entire WTF folder. Later you may copy and paste back files selectively :)
    If you want to make sure you never loose your profile information, I strongly encourage you to do a backup regularly ;)

    Thank you!

    And of course. It is my fault that I seemed to neglect the necessity of backing up thought-out and typed information, assuming nothing random was going to happen which would erase such literal effort. But that's usually why you are supposed to do that in the first place ...because these things don't usually happen when it's expected.

    I think I learned my lesson for good this time, haha.

    Hey. Lorithas from The White Sigil on WRA.

    MRP conflicts with a lot of buff add-ons by replacing buff tooltips with character MRP tooltips (unless you set the tooltip style to Default).  I asked the author of my current buff add-on (Raven), and they said it's highly likely that the problem is caused by MRP and can only be fixed by you. 

    Is there a fix for this or do I just have to get used to not being able to see buff tooltips?

    Quote from the Project Manager of Raven:

    "I think the problem is in MyRolePlay. It should be able to recognize that the tooltip is for a spell and not for a player. Something like this came up a long time ago, though, so I don't know if anything is likely to be done about it."

    One of my guild officers on Wyrmrest Accord claims to be the guy who made this. I suspect he is lying through his teeth (again).

  • #982

    Mackinzee of the <Oathsworn Vanguard>, at your service! Mousy of my alts are in that guild. We can be found on Wyrmrest Accord - US.

  • #979

    The author of MyRolePlay 1/2/3 hasn't played WoW for years. I, the author of MyRolePlay 4, don't play WoW anymore, and when I did it was in the EU.

    The current author however does play on Wyrmrest Accord-US. If you meet them in the world, you'll see a note in their tooltip (see ID.lua for the relevant names).

  • #976

    just logged into WoW, as I always do. But before I did, I had to renew my subscription time, and do some very minor updates. And when I checked MRP, everything I had written was gone! And that was a lot! And there is no way to get it back!

    /Show MRP

    So I have a slight issue where when I go to use /show MRP (Name) It just brings up and empty mrp and tells me "Sending request, please wait."  

    This happens everywhere and to everyone. I thought it might be the add on conflicting with another add on but I disabled everything else and it still happened. Any ideas?

  • #972

    So I've noticed in the past several days (including before the 6.0.3 patch) that MyRP has been causing an issue with mouse-over tooltips.

    MyRP is the one and only addon I use, and enabling it currently causes tooltips to not work. They appear for a microsecond when mousing over some character or NPC (including non-players) and then vanish, or don't appear altogether. Disabling the addon fixes the issue.

    Could you release an update to fix this?

  • #977

    I'm going to try and pinpoint the mouseover issue (If anything, it's going to be something miniscule that Blizzard decided to nudge a bit that started screwing with the rest of the coding.

    I apologize for the late response, I've been busy swapping jobs as of late.

  • #987

    Aye, it appears that tooltips randomly stop showing up properly now regardless of addons (I have no other addon besides MyRP).

    I'm guessing there's no way to make the addon fix this inherent issue though.

    So I guess we'll wait until Blizzard sloooooooooowly get around to fixing it, if ever...

  • #981

    Oh, that's a relief. Thank you. Still gonna annoy the hell out of me, though. Thanks, Metzen.
