What was your first sign of burnout?

This weekend I didn’t log into WoW at all.

Admittedly, I’m really busy these days.  Three kids with various activities, family birthday parties, cooking, cleaning a house, and work that I bring home all take their toll on my free time.

That aside, I did have a couple of hours Sunday evening to log in, and I chose not to.  I elected to relax at home with my wife rather than relax in Draenor.

Is that the beginning of WoW burnout?

The one thing that really makes me question whether I am burned out is a single task I have yet to accomplish.  I have yet to unlock the Level 3 Fishing Shack.  In past expansions, this is the kind of thing I would have been all over like a bee on honey.  I never minded grindy tasks if they had a specific and desirable goal at the end.  Plus, I have always had a love for fishing in the game.  I was the first person I knew to get the Salty title, back in the day.

These days I can’t really motivate myself to go out and catch a few hundred fish.  I’m only logging on for an hour at a time, except on raid nights, and looking for short-time activities rather than long-term goals.

Is this the first stage of burnout?

    For me Raiding drives everything else in game. As I am currently not able to raid in guild it’s not so much burnout. I’m just out.
