OK, not the cleverest title I realize. But this is something I've wanted to get other opinions on for a while. Often times I hear it's for travel, new area access, etc. And I do accept that is a piece. however I want to hear some other reasons and thoughts for these: To those that play, what is the appeal to you, of playing a Nightmare or a Mercenary? What is your favourite part about playing them? Least favourite? Nuances in RP you've learned or other insights you've gain about RolePlaying in general by being one? Though these two seem to be disjointed, I often see both highly sought after, or new ones popping up in the Guild Recruitment all the time so clearly they both strike some cord within people, possibly even the same one for some people!
Note: This is not a thread to crap on people for holding a more popular rp choice. This is simply a meant to be a thread asking why one chose to do this and why people enjoy their RP ((also a curiosity on what you've learned over time as I said before)).
