    Lets see.
    Been playing WOW for just over/almost 3 years.
    First time i've logged on DP since WOTLK expansion at 12 on Thursday.
    I have been on it practically over 16 hours a day so be getting very little sleep - its 3.23am when im writing this post and im still levelling =D
    I am level 78 Mage with only 2 levels left to go - On Tuesday we plan to start raiding Nauxx. [Keep in mind it takes millions of XP to level from 70-80]
    I told my BF he's getting no sex for the next month.

    Oh and im planning to call in sick for work to continue playing.

    Now im no expert but i think im addicted :P
    I wish I had that kind of time to put in...I wouldn't log off till I was lvl80....but alas, I'm a lowly lvl72

    And where the hell are those Nexus Drakes anyway?

    You know if I had asurence that I could move back to Doomhammer, I'd move to Frizcrank in a second.

    Can't wait to hit 80 and see the new BG's.

    Aw bless, 72. I hit that within the first 8/9 hours of the games release
    What quest? You in Borean Tundra?

    I prefer Age of Conan. WoW's PVP sucks.

    WoW pvp used to be fun. Back when you fought in contested zones and not in sanctioned dueling areas lol.

    But if it's PvP you're after Lineage II, WAR, EQII, all imo WAY better pvp than age of conan.

    Re: World of Warcraft release revives concern over games addiction

    I put a lot of time into that game back when I was going for rank 14 in the pre-BC Xpac days. It was crazy! Our battleground groups would run from 6pm to 3am on weeknights, all day and all night on weekends. I got no sleep for like 3 months. But at least I got that sweet staff and the snazzy "High Warlord" title!

    I retired for good in early '08. The three and a half years I played the game were a ton of fun.

    Geez it took me 10 hours to get to lvl71 ....and I have Questhelper and everything.

    I've cleared the Tundra...it's the aria where Nexis is...I don't recall the name..

    And yes, I'm one of those folks who forked over some gold to get a port to Dalanar. Have you seen the 3 person mammoth mount for 20K? It looks awesome. If there were ever insperation to buy gold, that's it, imo.

    You know your convincing me to move to a new server so I can get quests don...but Doomhammer is locked...and I wouldn't be able to get back for a long time...

    Almost 79 =D
    So damn close to 80 i can taste it lmao

    Bloody hell 10 hours for one level?? What HAVE you been doing with your time!

    Im a mage, i can teleport and port to dalanar and it only costs me a few silver xD

    Im in Silvermoon, a nice normal server. I dislike PVP servers.
    If i ding 80 by tomorrow or Tuesday then i can level my DK to 80.

    If you think im obsessed with WOW.
    A guild in my realm has all levelled to 80 yesterday; started raiding and took down a boss in Nexus and has DK's that is higher level than me!
    I started at 70, the Death knights start at 55!
