Breakfast Topic: WoW dreams

Have you ever had those gaming dreams? Like, say, after playing Tetris for four hours straight, your dreams become inundated with big, floaty boxes? We've actually asked this before, but since it's a Breakfast Topic, you just might have some dream fresh in your noggin. My wife's actually had a couple of bizarre World of Warcraft dreams, such as that time where she dreamed she was raiding in RL, with giant Playstation-like controllers attached to her arms and where she (along with friends) ran up and down our main street fighting some Level ?? house-boss.

Doesn't make any sense? Of course not! It's a dream about WoW! I've had more than my fair share of Salvador Dali-esque Battlegrounds-related dreams, specially after grinding endless hours. So, good morning! How was your dream? More to the point, how was your World of Warcraft dream?

To WoW, perchance to dream

Last night I dreamt of Mudsprocket. I was questing with one of my alts -- I assume my shadow priest, but I can't be certain because I was seeing the perspective from her eyes -- and I came across a new NPC standing next to the flight master. She was a female orc named Robin Torres, and I realized she was named after our Robin of WoW Insider fame.

The dream switches to me having a discussion at a party with a friend of mine. Over drinks I mention what I found in the game and she doesn't seem the least bit surprised. "Well, Azeroth Interrupted was incredibly popular" she tells me.

Now this isn't the first time I've dreamt about the game. I do so pretty much all the time. Since I play so much my unconscious mind feeds on what is on my mind at the time. What intrigued me looking back on it was my creation of my own NPC to place into the game. So I wondered what other NPCs players might like to see referenced in WoW. I know the game is riddled with references, from Caretaker Ophera Windfury to Eyonix himself. I'm interested to see what the readers would select for new NPCs to add to the game. Who would you like to meet lounging at the bar in a tavern in Howling Fjord or standing guard at the Sunwell?

Do you ever dream of WoW?

Imagine the scene: the boss has been defeated, and after five grueling hours you're finally able to step out of the instance victorious. You log out to catch some shut eye, and your mind fills with images of the mobs you've just defeated. You're now dreaming of WoW.

A forum post about this subject really got me thinking. In fact, evidently even Eyonix dreams of WoW, which I guess isn't all that surprising really. I often dream that I am in game when I am happily zonked out. For me, I think it is a case of sensory input; I dream a lot of times about what I see and hear. A while back I prepared the night before a business meeting by printing out my reports and leaving them by the door so that I wouldn't forget them. I didn't, but in my dreams that night I did. The same is true of World of Warcraft. I spent so much time immersed in the game that it sometimes slips into my dreams as well.

Do you dream of WoW? What sorts of in game elements slip into your slumber?
