The closes thing to World of Warcraft (by name) that I have ever played is World in Conflict, which has nothing to do with WOW in any way, shape, or form.

Find him a girlfriend. I play the game myself, and one thing you usually see in the chat window is, "Sry guys I got to go. GF aggro." Girlfriends usually whip male WoW players into shape, provided that they themselves don't play the game as well.

There is a great deal of self discipline needed with that game. I had roommates that played that game in college and would skip out on a entire day's worth of classes. I didn't start till my last 2 years, though I had played the earlier forms of Warcraft back when it was an RTS game. But when it was class time, I pulled my can out of the seat and went to class. Whenever it was time for me to work out, I pulled my can out of that seat. When I needed to get work done, I closed the game. If my friends and I wanted to go out to do something, then I gladly left the game. The game does get stale after a while. Especially once your character hits the highest level and all you can really do is raiding. That's usually when people start leveling up a new character. I personally don't maintain more than 1 character because that's a lot more work than I want to put into the game.

If his social life suffers because of this game, you have to talk with him. As he likes to game, he might find some friends who also like to game. Or they might even be interested in old-school boardgames.
Just some ideas which would bring social interacting (virtual realities are not social interacting IMO) and playing games together.

I disenchanted them and sold the mats on the auction house.

Nope. When one whips someone into shape by definition a whip must be involved. 'Whip of Wisdom' maybe?

For the scant 3 months that I played it, I can honestly say that I've never enjoyed myself more. If I die, and God won't let me in heaven, but doesn't want to send me to hell, and gave me the choice of anyplace else I could go, I'd pick World Of Warcraft. There's food, drink, beautiful women, adventure, creatures of lore and magnificent vista's galore to lose one's self in. As long as you can find your own corpse, you can never die. You continually advance and better yourself, your guild supports you and provides you with assistance and advice and you can fly a Gryphon across the world, do battle with the forces of darkness and become a hero in your own mind. I can't think of anywhere on the actual Earth that a person can have such a good time with their clothes on. World Of Warcraft rocks! It only has two flaws. The first is, you keep paying for the game even after you've payed for the game. The second is, the continual upgrades and patches are enough to drive you to drink. But there's no other game I know of where you can flee from Golem's to be chased by Kobold's, Escape into a river to be attacked by carnivorous fish, and climb out on the shore only to be eaten by a Tiger. It just doesn't get any better than that.
