I spend a majority of my free time in WoW (more in Outland than Azeroth, but that's a small point), adding up to around 20 hours a week.But I think it gives me a better perspective than the person who plays five hours a week. The reason is that I know that I'll have a chance to run an instance three more times this week. Someone who has 5 hours a week of play time really has to make their time count to keep up with friends and guildmates. If they wipe twice in SLabs trying to get their class set piece, that's their week's time and they have nothing to show for it but a repair bill. If I wipe twice in SLabs, I can call it a night and try again tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that. I have the freedom of time to spend an early Sunday morning mining adamantite to cover my repair costs for the week.Still don't want to be an officer. At least not until I find a guild with the following rules in place and enforced:1. No kids/teenagers (they tend to make inappropriate jokes or flip out too easily)2. No asking for instance runs, even if you're the guild leader playing on an alt3. No begging, even as a joke4. No sexism, racism, homophobia, etc.

@ Milktub (12)"No asking for instance runs, even if you're the guild leader playing on an alt."Really? How do you ever get anything done? I'm honestly curious about this.The guild to which I belong (as a non-officer) is very, very big on lending a helping hand to folks, going so far as to having one night a week =dedicated= to it. Someone needs attunement? "Need _______? Let's get it, gang!"Unless everything is planned out and scheduled ahead of time, this lack of support seems more than a bit exclusionary, especially if you're not all at the same phase in terms of gameplay.

Rafe, I can understand a run or two somewhere but that'd be it. There's already an unfortunate amount of players that just seem to grind up to 70 then think "Oh hey, let's do shattered halls!"Yeah, it sucks balls if you have to PUG due to no guildies being in that level range but it's far, far, FAR better to learn your class in ZF or Mara than in any Outlands instance. And, frankly, it's better to PUG while learning so you're, 1) Not pissing off you're guildies like no tomorrow and, 2) Can either drop out or replace a party member with less drama.
