    That is how you feel when the Beetles in Olivia take 5 skills to die as a Wizard.

    PVE servers would prolly bring it back. The Trolling/toxicity/ganking/hostility from the more PVP focused crowd certainly has an impact.

    RP community was hunted for a while religiously when they left the safe zones on pvp enabled characters.

    Then people would also go the the Calph02 channel and purposely park their guild Elephants in the popular RP spots like the tavern and leave the Elephants there all the time. There's probably one there now. Throw in the server/roleplay channel trolling and that about sums it up.

    There are a few RP guilds still around I believe so try asking in Calpheon server or RP chat. I believe one or two of the RP guilds actually have good numbers and gear for Node Wars.

    Man, your avatar looks quite a bit like my little ferret boy Karkat, which makes you my favorite CM.

    As for RP, if you can't find it, make it yourself. I'm 99% in-character when I play and most people don't even notice. Mainly because I don't do that lame emote-posting in public chat. Have fun, be creative, don't get discouraged.

    roleplayers are naturally of a weak disposition. Something akin to mental instability. And due to various events in the past, coupled with the game's natural aging and multiple fiasco patches, the RP community has dwindled.

    but let's focus on that first part for a moment. RPers can only maintain their fragile state so long as their fantasies remain unbroken. And through the power of memes and indomitable will RPers have become insurmountably relegated to second class citizens in BDO. The RP community is aware of this, and that inescapable truth killed the RP community.

    All according to plan

    I hated getting stuck on Cal2 after doing bosses, I saw so much cringeworthy stuff from the rp community

    They're all in the basement of some streamer's house, in their underwear.

    *Mom, its not what it looks like, it's just a game*


    edit: should have stated its the streamers ingame house, would be really awkward otherwise.

    I agree with you; i despise how rpers all remain in heidel; wife and i have been in Grana and the surrounding territories for the last 6 months (doing a flashback sequence which finally ended) We never stuck to one spot, ever, i stretch out and bring rp all over the map; but because it's just the wife and i altered the lore and made the world our own lol; only a few times we've encountered other rpers and had a good time, those were just by chance and how rp should be. You shouldnt have to go to an inn to find rp; it should be evenly spread in the world.
