This might be a long and boring semi IRL post, if you get bored easily stop here! :)

I'm just gonna start by saying that when I have too much time off from WoW, I start having dreams of what I'm playing and different scenarios in-game. Then when I wake up I have this urge to play this certain character/class. This usually happens after I've had a break from WoW (2+ months).

So I have a 2 month year old son and a full time job. This limits my playtime a lot because most nights after work I do the usual chores such as make dinner, a little bit of cleaning, dishes, emptying litter box and walking the dog. When I'm done with all of that I have maybe an hour play/cuddles with my son before the battle of getting him to sleep starts. If I'm lucky he will fall asleep at 20.30 earliest, most nights it's closer to 21.30. Thing is I have to get up at 05.30 and restart this whole process which makes me want to go to bed at 22.30-23.00 latest if I want to feel like a human being the day after. But again, then I have my SO. If I play wow the last 1-1.5hrs there is no time for her. So most nights end up just spending time with her instead (which is amazing, would never take a game over IRL interactions). Weekends are booked with meeting friends and family obviously but I can sometimes squeeze in 2-5 hours total on saturday+sunday.

But before Saturday and Sunday comes, I've now started to have these "WoW" dreams again, where I'm playing my Alt Hunter (played this exclusively in Vanilla). As I said these usually come after a long break but now it's like once every week.

The dream:
I was playing my Orc Hunter named Quicks (I can't really say that I was playing the hunter, it was more as if I was the Hunter, but still in a 3rd perspective). We had just taken over Stormwind City (mind you Quicks is level 14 so it would be highly unlikely), there were sounds of a thundering stampede of enemies on their big war mounts closing in on the city from outside the walls. Suddenly everything went silent and I looked around and found noone. I thought to myself is this a dream? (Dreamception? Having a dream inside a dream). I walked closer to some kind of sewer/canal outlet and I saw shadows sneaking closer. I started calling for help (this time in the chat for some weird reason, as I was "inside" the game). No replies so I drew my 6.8 dps bow and waited. Suddenly I saw some filthy Night Elves stick their head out from the outlet metal bars and I fired. Hit him square in the face but the arrow just bounced off. I kept firing while semi moonwalking backwards (the bug that occurs on pservers), this time I spammed the local defence chat and I got replies. They said "you are too low just get out of there" and nothing encouraging at all. I ran back to closest general shop (For some reason I could trade with the enemy NPCs) and bought more ammo. Suddenly to my aid a mage (He was Human but "horde", don't question my dream) came slow falling from a roof towards the outlet and started Arcane Explosion. Next thing hell breaks loose. 100s of alliance of all races push out from the outlet. 20-30 Hunter pets rush out ahead towards me. I was certain this was the end. I started shooting but again my arrows just bounced off as if they were made of stone. They were now inches away and I had made peace with myself (There was no resurrect). But then they just swoosh by me, and I turn around and there is the whole damn Horde army behind me. Lok'Tar Ogar mother fudgers, I knew Horde wouldn't chicken out!

Then I wake up to the disgusting alarm at 05.30, missing the epic battle that was about to happen, really bummed out. Hopefully my brain will store this and continue tonight. Almost excited to go to sleep.

Horde Human Mage, who are you?

I have dreams about WoW occasionally, usually it involves wrecking people in pvp, most recently as an undead spriest, which I don't play.

Funny enough I was able to follow the story as I was reading it and see it in my head, as disjointed and dreamlike as you wrote it. But I could see it. Fuck I'm spending too much time in this damn game :lol:

yeah ive had a few of those dreams as well. like buffing people in my dreams. pressing the button for the buff but at the same time its in real time and not an interface on a computer. weird how your subconscious molds it all together like that.
was gonna say though, your first paragraph i thought you were leading into some kind of alt addiction story. cause thats exactly how it happens with me. not the dreaming part but ill just imagine it in my head, have the urge to roll 3895 characters hahah

After reading the title, I was expecting a Marthin Luther King Jr. WoW speech.

When I was in my mid-30s (level-wise), I was questing in Desolace. For some reason, I didn't sleep well at all the night before and that ENTIRE DAY, I'd have these odd deja vu flashbacks and it would cause this awful, dreadful sinking feeling in my stomach. My heart would race, my breathing would quicken. It was like a deja vu induced panic attack. I was kinda no-lifing it pretty hard at the time, so it makes sense...but damn it was scary. It only happened during that one day, and it happened about 6-7 times throughout every time I thought about being in the Desolace!

Been a month now and nothing even remotely similar has happened. Saw my GP about something unrelated and he said it sounded a lot like partial seizures. Scary as hell.

I put down a bid on a Warden Staff on the auction hall last night with less than 8 hours remaining right before I went to bed. I was stuck in a dream all night where I could have sworn I won the auction, but then couldn't find it in my bags, then went to my mailbox, and found the wrong item. Then I couldn't find that wrong item in my bags either, followed by being frustrated not knowing where my Warden Staff went.

Luckily I woke up and found out that I did win the auction and it was waiting for my in my mailbox for realsies. This can't be healthy, lol.

I borrowed some gold from a friend and I am waiting for a decent price and will buy a Warden Staff. Having the BiS Tanking weap in phase 1.5 for a decent price is just too good to pass up.

The prices are coming way down now that DM is out. The Unyielding Maul is almost as good as the Warden Staff, and it's free. Actually getting the Unyielding Maul pays you money because of all the loot and gold you pick up while farming it :lol: I was seeing the Warden Staff go for 500g before DM launched, and now it seems to be worth half that. I got mine for 271g. My favorite part about the Warden Staff is having the best mitigation druid weapon in the game at level 43. I mean I'm 54 now, almost 55, but still I don't have to wait to 60. I can have fun with it now and not have to wait.
