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.)

- Removed "of" from House section of the profile (Same goes with the Italian version)
- Put a visual character limit on the Titles section: Now allotted 44 characters on the viewing window. Still at 77 at the hover window.

I'm sorry it's not much else, but I've been extremely busy for the past couple of months. With Lent and the fact we're remodeling the house by ourselves, it's proven to be a rather interesting time for the family. I figured I shouldn't upload another "just making sure it's updated" thing without having SOMETHING in there.

    I'd be posting this on your website but everytime I try to register it says I didn't type the right words in ^_^. MyRolePlay worked fine for me for a while. My pals were saying my story was interesting so I know it worked then. But lately people have been telling me that there's random letters, icon-thingies (like / \ ) and numbers in the middle of my story and description. Is there anything I can do about that? I don't use WoWDings and I updated it but it's still messed up =[

    I''m having the same problem, any suggestions?
  • #263
    Same issue. A friend let me know that about a month ago on another character, and then now on my paladin :( Really hoping for a fix.
  • #265
    The people who are telling you those things are using out-of-date versions themselves. They're seeing it because *they* need to update - Blizzard changed the chat encoding so that the old method didn't work anymore, so I had to reinvent it from Beta 3.0.48 onwards.
  • #256
    Updated to 3.0.49 stable, compatible with WoW

    If you experience any bugs, please report then on the forums at - thanks!

    When I scroll over my characters icon I can not see my own information. Other players show up fine.
  • #258
    I have the same problem. After trying for a bit I found out if you move the cursor to your portrait or name you won't get the name. But for some reason if you scroll over your health or mana and from that location move the mouse to your portrait or name your information will be at the bottom right hand.
  • #255
    That may or may not work, depending on your unit frames setup; but if you target yourself, your MRP button should appear and you should be able to see your own details in the MRP details viewer.

    Unable to register at

    Error recieved is : The letters you typed don't match the letters that were shown in the picture.
  • #251
    *sigh* I thought I pasted the info of the rest of the problem, but I was tired when I posted this. I was in fact falling asleep at my pc when I attempted to report this bug.

    The problem is... the forums will not allow me to register. I never see the 'letters' it is talking about to type in to confirm I am not a machine. I see the Agree box, but I see no letters to type, much less a box in which to type them in. The only feilds I see are: User Name, email, password, and password confirm.

    Problem fixed, ladysilverwolf.
  • #248
    This add on causes game crashes at log in when used with either Chatter or Elephant.
  • #254
    Unable to reproduce, hellboundheart.

    I run Elephant 2.5 myself and have experienced no such problems. Though, you should probably set it not to record the two hidden channels (MyWarcraftCo and xtensionxtooltip2), as that isn't very useful. If you're still having an issue, that is presumably an issue with the Elephant mod and should be reported there.
  • #247
    In addition to my last comment, it does not appear to be another addon causing the problem. I disabled all addons besides MRP and the problem still continued.
  • #245
    There is a problem with the 10/23 version of MRP. It distorts descriptions for everyone who uses it. I, as well as many others, are unable to decode the error in the coding that results from this distorting. Wierd symbols and cut off words are substituted in for the original text. Just making you aware of the problem.
