Taking a break from the game every now and then can be mentally productive. Breaking from a task allows us to think more creatively, then trying to continously come of with new ideas, while submerged deep within our in game tasks.
I recently was gone from the game for nearly 3 weeks, due to personal, work, and financial issues. But awaiting me is a new shifted and refreshed auction house market to have fun with and crush the dreams of new players who only aspired in my absense. Mwahahahaha!
