Help with some character problems, please.

I'm having trouble getting a handle on my one character. She's a World of Warcraft gnome warrior. I kinda want her to be meta enough to know about corpse-runs and gearscore and being aware that she turned in VanCleef's head but can go back to the instance and kill him again.

My inspirations
A bit of Wreck-It Ralph.

I can't figure out the philosophy behind disconnecting and going AFK. How much of her personality is her, and how much is the player. Why would she go running down a road past mobs that she can't see the level of to get to a flight point when she shouldn't know that there is a FP there...

One of her hobbies is getting into the "behind" places. In Vanilla, there are a lot of places where the textures and terrain were just not polished because you're not supposed to be there. I want her to get to PPC headquarters by falling through the unfinished tunnel near the Ironforge airport.

I have figured out that she's not too keen on trusting technology. On the server I play on, there was a bug where her mechnostrider would constantly malfunction. I also want to have a story about the time she fell off the deeprun tram and had to run down the tunnel.

      I realized that most of the overpowered meta characters are the ones that can actually manipulate the world outside the game, and that where you're going is a good direction to go with it. However,... more

      Part of it depends on how meta you want her to be and how YOU want to write it, what you feel comfortable with and such. It would be tricky to be in a situation that you can't describe very well in... more

        *nod* Thanks. I'm still kinda iffy on how she is. I tried writing out her life as if she had a backstory before becoming an adventurer and then suddenly there was another presence in her head... more
        • Probably something less so, then? Pasty Greens, Fri Dec 8 1:22am
          Maybe her waking up somewhere strange is the side effect of being a deleted character. Maybe her player was hacked and she was deleted, sending her through the plothole. If she ever met her player... more

            One thing that I don't want to do is have her meet her player, or for her player to really be able to recognize her. I think I'm going to go with how she didn't have much of a personality when she... more
