WoW is just a game, treat it as such. It's not a job & shouldn't feel like one.If styff in WoW stresses you out, makes you mad, etc ... step away from the computer.

@RizSadly, to many it's an addiction (as demonstrated in this post). Taking "time off" for some will literally cause people to show signs of stress and withdrawal. Sad facts.What got me to curb the intake of WoW was the number of poor changes that have been made to the game as well as my class; the drug got bad and I lessened my intake. So, my break was induced by the pusher. Thanks (or no thanks) Blizzard.@ZachGetting back into the game? Thinking back, getting back into the game after not playing for a few days (or weeks) was always fairly easy, I mean c'mon, WoW isn't rocket science. Dealing with other players, now that's a little more on-par with rocket science. Nonetheless, I'm going off-topic.When one says they "need a break" from something, there's a good indication that there's a negative aspect about what they're doing. Warcraft, and all gaming, is a hobby and should be treated as so. Of course, I'm sure you were prepared to get some flack for the "taking a break" phrase. ;) Perhaps an article on game addiction is on par? lol

I've been without WOW for a couple months, and have found that it hasn't affected me that much at all. I was never a hardcore player but hit my fair share of the virtual celestial body many of us call home. At first i found it really slowed down my days without wow. Having to find other means of entertainment was a bit daunting at first. But keeping up to date with the wow news ( 3.1 changes etc.) and chatting with mates about it made me realize all the more that if wow ceases to be a source of entertainment, by all means, try another game, try no games. I found that this has made me enjoy wow all the more now that i have come back to it :DPs. Lambform is real i asked jeeves.
