My wife (sort of) patiently put up with my WoW addiction from the last stress test & open beta, until early January. But she started making "we don't spend any time together" noises (and she was right, I played from 5AM to 8AM, and then 7PM to 12PM everyday (much more on weekends)). Luckily, I was getting quite board with the game and gave it up cold turkey. I suggest you do the same. What happens if things go south and you have to explain to a judge (and friends) that you're getting divorced because you were addicted to a stupid game? I don't think you'll get too much sympathy.drison said:I'm a little tired and my wife is not very happy. Any advice?
you only run into this problem if you choose a boring class like rogue. Every battle is completely different with a druid, or a challenging class like that.4) Press the same keys over and over again for 2 hours.
Druid...solo: Roots, moonfire, wrath, wrath, starfire, heal, moonfire group: healing touch, regrowth, healing touch, healing touch, regrowth....the feral parts are too gimped to really be usefull....only the bear form is useful as a tank in low level instances.scem0 said:you only run into this problem if you choose a boring class like rogue.

I agree with the people who say you should get your wife addicted. I have played with a couple couples .
Oouch. Sorry man, I didn't mean to dig up bad memories for anyone. Just curious about how they got away with playing while maintaining a relationship with said sig other. Sounds like I need to limit it to some spare time on the weekends and whenever my wife and kids are at her parents.QCassidy352 said:WoW was one of the significant contributing factor to the break up of my 4+ year relationship. Ironically, my gf was the one whose addiction ultimately became the problem, but that's not really important.
I think your relationship needs to already have problems for a game to seriously hurt it, but let me tell you, WoW is definitely no help.
Guys, it's not worth it. It's just not. You had a life before WoW, and you'll have a life when you quit. I'm absolutely heartbroken right now, and to think that the way I'm feeling in any way came from a VIDEO GAME makes me sick.

Rarely do I get angry at people on these boards, but I'm so furious right now that I'm really glad this is just the internet and I can't do anything that I'd regret.RandomDeadHead said:I don't mean to spit in your eye bro, but if a video game was enough to drive you two apart, you already had much bigger problems. I withstood 3 years of my wife being a fall down drunk. She put up with a small herion addiction I had during the mid eighties, that wiped out all of our saveings, almost ruened our buesness, landed me in jail for six mounths and nearly killed me twice. In the end love kept us togather.
If their had been enough love in your relationship, it would have worked out. It's not like she was screwing druids and selling your house to buy more online play or however wow does it.
So to everyone "worried" about your Wow addiction, suck it up. Go shoot H for a couple months and then well talk addiction. If iv drugs arn't your cup of tea, find peace knowing that loosing a 18 hours a day to a video game is not **** compaired to what the famiys of addicts have to deal with.
So keep playin' it's better the crack.
