    You poor bastard. I bought it in Feb and still can't stop playing. Want any hints and tips, just ask

    Want some help? Make a horde character on Moonglade (RP server) and check if Nyargle (lvl 60 shaman) is on (or maybe my lvl 11ish priest Zimyip) and if I am not busy, I can maybe give you a hand

    Known as 'THE VORTEX OF DOOM' by those who play.

    Level 26 Gnome Warrior here. I've been online for 4 hours today. I'm 28 years old.... 28 BLOODY YEARS OLD! And I'm addicted.........

    I'm on Turalyon if you need a spot of help.

    A Quick search on the interweb reveals all is lost for all those who enter.

    I pity you I really do.

    I played and was an addict of Ultima Online and even Counterstrike at one point in my life.

    Since giving up computer gaming addiction I have taken up diving, running, healthy eating and lost over 3 stone in weight.

    My Skin has a colour other than greay now and my eyes dotn look like a Panda.

    Beware online gaming addiction is a serious issue and I know of people hwo lost their family, Job and income due to it.

    Luckily I am not the addictive sort and although I play a bit each week (one evening mostly and idly grind stuff whilst watching tv ), I also climb once a week, dive once a week, run 3 times a week, gym once a week, play DnD once a week, read a lot and still have time to go out and get drunk. Oh and go to work

    The problem isn't even ehwn every spare moment is taken with gaming, but when you delay or stop doing everything else to make time for the game...... I've seen it happen to friends of mine:

    Wake up, switch on game, play for a bit, rush shower and brekkie, close down game and go to work.

    Home, switch on computer, start playing, grab crisps and coke occasionally, finally fall into an exhausted stupor at 2am.

    Repeat 24/7.

    That turns you into the overweight (or underweight) geaseball with zero social skills and barely enough energy to walk up the stairs who shrivesl at the sight of the sun.

    heh.

    I'm only playing so much 'cause I'm out of work (voluntarily!) I'll have no probs ramping down when I start up again.

    Would never even think of logging on before brekkies on a work day.

    You'll probably also find that when you start hitting levels 20 - 30, you'll get a bit bored with the endless 'kill 20 of these and 10 of those' quests, turn the game off and actually go outside.

    Yeah btu then you get near the endgame at lvl 58+ and you "need" to grind for reputation or gold for that epic mount (1000g ffs - 800 with rep and rank discount) or for those cool patterns and things.

    Then there's the fact that a raid to Molten Core (40 man dungeon) or one of the other big raid instances will easily last anything up to 7 hours (plus the hour to sort of arrive, get ready etc etc). My guild raids pretty much once a day - I choose simply to do one a week maximum but there are guys and gals who are there for every raid!

    20-40 is actually quite a fun time, you can start to explore more of the world, some of the really fun instances become available to you (Scarlet Monastery is great fun) and the battlegrounds get interesting if you like PvP stuff.

    lvl 60 is different, lots of people just start another character......

    me? I am waiting for the burning crusade and lvl 70

    Ah I remember diving as I look at the kit strewn across my spare bedroom ( I mean office )

    Still enforced break time, off for a jolly into Haarlem.....
