You thought Saw was scary?
Spiders and tiny bugs crawling all over you while you sleep make you shiver?
Does the monster under your bed keep you up at night?
You ain't seen nothing yet.
Let LifePercent scare you back to reality.

Dubbed "the best rehab vs. WoW" by several leading scientists, LifePercent is a small utility that, on login, will tell you how many percent of your life you've spent in-game in the following format:

You have spent Y% (X% since release) of your life in-game, divided among Z character(s) on A realm(s).

The release date is detected from your game locale; WoW was released on different dates in different areas of the world. You'll have to enter your birth date through the /lifepercent command and log all your characters once to update the total and make it correct.

LifePercent replaces the default "time played" message. If you want to show the original one, you need to execute /lifepercent played.

Please note that since WoW does not allow access to saved data from other accounts, it's not possible to combine the time played across multiple accounts.
