I work in the telecommunications sector with VPN possibilities so actually I am able to do some parrallell "work". However I prefer not too and the addiction and time consumption of lvling is what scares me the most of this sexy ass game...

The first week I was free and managed to get to 31. This week I only managed to get to 34, but that is okay.

Last week I no-lifed it and now it's back to work > crossfit > tv show > wow.

I hope to get to 36/37 at the end of this week.

Working 40 hours a week + having a son at the age of 14 months keeps me rather busy, but luckily I took time off work for launch so I am sitting at lv35 and have planned Sunday so that I can stay on the computer the entire day.. Hoping for lv40 + mount mid next week!

1-41 the first week. Now that I'm back at work I pretty much login to check my rested xp, check the ah and logout lol.

I don't really mind. Gonna save me a lot of time leveling with rested xp.

It's great that we have this website. I am working at an office so I can check in very often.

After work can't login with my main because of the queues and I cannot wait for the free transfer option.

Really no-lifed it so far, lvl 41. Off for a week though and hoping i can chill a bit. Grind is mesmerising though.

I can play twice a week maximum so far. My Paladin is level 12 now.

9-5 40 hr/week worker here.

I'm level 35 now. I scheduled some days off surrounding labor day weekend so I had 6 days off straight to play initially which got me to level 32.

It helps to have a very understanding wife. Mostly I'm just a late night person. I can game a few hours a night, but 3 or 4 nights of the work week I will push it and stay up until 2ish to get me a lot of time. I also can fit a lot in on the weekends still.

But again, having an understanding wife is key if you want to be married, a dad, full time job, and want to play this game.

I'm level 24 now. That doesn't seem like a lot but I've definitely been putting in time. I did not take any days off work for Classic, and I've been keeping the same sleeping schedule, which means I only have a solid 2-3 hours every night. Most of my consistent playtime happens in the evenings from Sunday to Thursday. Fridays and Saturdays are typically reserved for my wife, family and friends.

I'm having a blast so far and did my first ever Deadmines run last night (this is my first Alliance character).

Focusing at work is harder. I play during half of my lunch-break. I think of Wow frequently while working. Aside from this minor issues I'm having a blast!

I work in law enforcement. We have a weird schedule. 2 days on 2 off 3 on 2 off 2 on 3 off. i work 6pm - 6am. I'm leveling two characters mage is at 25 and hunter is at 13. I play the mage when the wife isn't playing and hunter with her.

Same here, irregular shifts in 40+ hours a week. 2 kids a wife 3,4 times a week training sports & renovating a house.

No classic for now at this point, heck sleep is overrated.

It's amazing to look back and think how much time we put in this game when we were younger. No doubt, between my warrior and DK on retail, I have over 365 days /played. That's a scary thought to think I spent a year of my life in Azeroth (and various other continents) yet cannot wait to get back. I guess it really has become a home away from home.

It sucks having real life obligations, but that's part of being an adult lol. I have probably spent a lot more time on classic than I should have, which is not anywhere near as much as I should have.

But such is life. On the bright side, one of the reasons I love classic so much more than retail is because I don't feel obligated to log in and do chores every day. The lack of artifact power, world quests, and other daily chores means that if I have to take a week off, nothing has changed. I just pick up right where I left off, and I'm not punished for not completing my daily chores.

Thank goodness we have classic.

Yeah, I'm in school 30 hrs a week and working as a waiter 25, so I have had to choose between WoW and sleep, and I haven't slept much! 😆

Doing my best to remember that we will all hit 60 and eventually be raiding again, trying not to rush it or get annoyed
