For perspective, in 9 days of use the cpu spent 84% of this time in deep sleep, 8% at 384mhz, 1% at 594mhz and 2% at 1.242ghz. I do a lot of email, occasionally surf and watch vids, no games.
Diablo 3 not only failed to replicate this excitement, but they took every possible step to ensure that I wouldn't.
Wow strung a chord with me, that is exactly how I grew to feel about WoW. Maybe the natural evolution of blizzard games? I'm not sure RMAH was ever implemented in wow, but basically "ultimate equipment" was removed when 10man gear = 25man gear.
