Breakfast Topic: Are you an insomniac WoW player?


World of Warcraft lends itself to the night owl. The game is detailed enough where if you want to be effective at it you need to concentrate a little bit, and that usually means not having distractions around you like kids, a significant other, or your pets. The best time I find that I can get distraction free is in the late evening and early morning hours.

I'm a night owl, if you will. In fact I'm sitting here typing this up at 2:15 a.m. CST. Quite late for most of my WoW friends even (however at least a few WoW Insider writers are still up and working on things).

This leads me to ask for today's breakfast topic, what kind of player are you? Take a stab at the poll too and let us know.


One of the best parts about playing late at night is a certain attitude that I find hits around three in the morning. It's the phenomenon when everyone is tired, nearly falling over on their keyboard, and suddenly somebody says over vent "Let's just do one more heroic."

Next thing you know everyone is repairing and going at another instance. Suddenly instead of your head hitting that pillow like you wanted you're tanking another run. Bam, some more badges but no new gear. So much for the additional heroic. But that priest you're running with got something nice, so she's happy.

I can't imagine I'm alone in this near insomniac like running of instances at three in the morning. So I ask you, dear WoW Insider reader, are you up for just one more heroic?

If you don't get the picture, read up and go find a copy of the show to watch. You won't be disappointed.
