Cataclysm achieved this for me and many i know. Here's my viewpoint
New Zones- copy and paste of previous content. Not much effort went in there. After the glorious burning crusade zones things went downhill. Main problem is the questing has changed. You simply bounce around the map following the papertrail of questlines not really caring about each area.
Quests are dull- OK they always have been in WOW but every new zone was simply kill mobs then after 6 or so questlines you get to kill the superboss dumbed down immensely.
Dungeons- Great levelling up to 85 going thru old content etc but the moment u hit 85 you hit the repetitive stage of PVE. And some of the dungeons like the Vortex Pinnacle are simply boring. The thought of going thru them everyday makes me feel ill. Even then u sit in SW for hours on end waiting to get a group. What a waste of a life. Plus what does PVE actually achieve in the long run??? So u get better gear, and??? As for raiding you have to have a jobless existence to get anywhere.
Guilds- Now full of diehard geeks/kids who will spit the dummy out at the slightest mistake you make. Pull an easy mob if your DPS and they will lynch you for it. Do i really want to spend my time playing with this sort of person? Nope
PVP- Grinding to get the same gear day in day out. BG again is full of kids screaming at you to stop zerging the middle. Its simply one big button bash when in combat as there's so many 'get out of jail' cards for all classes that its usually better to 'stick in the gang' and pick em off. You can't get any decent weopons so you simply are forced to do the arena or play with some 'auction house' crap.
Arena- Again its a button bashing panic. Firing off dps/ trinket macros and hoping you get the edge on the opponents. Then you meet the same Overpowered teams every few games. Your dps doesn't even dent them. Your score goes down. Great have to wait another few weeks to get that weopon. Without it i can't compete with these teams. More subscription fees for nothing.
Endgame- Log in at night. Sit on my mount high above Stormwind with all the other lemmings doing absolutely nothing. Maybe i'll get lucky and get into a dungeon in an hour. Shall i check the auction house for the 1000000th time? great i just sold some iron ore for 20g. Maybe i can do an achievement instead. At least then i'll feel like i'm doing something.
