Getting up to speed Part IV.5

I have a long discussion of the nature of raids and reptition in WoW that I’m not ready to post. However, I would just like to quote one post from WoW Detox that kinda stuck with me and gives some insight into the article I’m currently composing:

Realized I could better _myself_ rather than a character if I invested the same amount of time.

    This blog is getting lame fast. I personally liked it better when it wasn’t a log of you personally getting tired of the game.

    “Realized I could better _myself_ rather than a character if I invested the same amount of time.”

    Is alot like saying if I read textbooks all the time I will learn more than if I read fiction.
    Art and entertainment have a place in everyone’s life. This is the entertianment I choose.
    I have met GREAT people through this game that no chat room or local pub would ever have allowed me to contact. No; WoW should not dominate your life anymore than watching TV or movies… but if your personality does not allow you to create a comfortable line between entertainment and the other aspects of your life. That’s a lot bigger problem than whether or not you have a subscription to WoW.
    All entertainments become dull. Even gladiatorial combat. That’s why we are constantly driven to find something new. Welcome to the human condition.

    we3bus, if you don’t like what we’re posting, go submit some news to WoWbreak.

    Frankly, I wish there was some interesting stuff going on in WoW that needed several posts to fully explore it, but both the expansion and the trading card game are a bit like a rainbow that gets further away as you move closer.
