I can't pinpoint the problem but for the past couple of weeks I've lost all interest in playing WoW but it has actually started about a month ago. Not even 2 months into Cataclysm I'm already bored.
I don't feel like leveling any of my characters anymore. My hunter is the only one I've leveled to 85, while my priest remains 82, my paladin 81, my death knight and warlock remain 80, my mage is 79, my druid is 74 and my shaman is 51. I can't even get myself to make that tiny push to 80 with my mage.
Professions are in an even worse state. The only ones I've leveled to max are mining on my hunter and herbalism on my priest. All the other professions are still at WotLK levels and I don't see any incentive for leveling them farther at this point, not with >500K gold in my possession.
I haven't even done a fraction of the quests in the new Cataclysm zones and even though there's ton of new lore and great stories, I can't get myself to level another character through them.
Even flying through Azeroth has lost its charm. I mean, I do appreciate it and IMO it's the single best thing to come out of Cataclysm but I've already got over it.
For me, this expansion is dead and I don't see what Blizzard could possibly do to make it better. In a way I guess it's just burnout after playing WoW (on and off) for so many years. I don't even feel like playing other games and I'm a die-hard gamer dammit! On the flip side, I have much more time to engage in other fun activities and hobbies.
Anyone else feel this way?
