You admit that it might not be fair to compare 2.4 to 3.1 so I looked up what was in patch 2.1 (I was still in Azeroth at the time, so it wasn't on my radar)SkettisOrgrilaBlack TempleNetherwingDruid epic flightA new raid, 3 more rep grinds and a great quest line for one class.I think one difference might be raid attunement for BT. Any level 80 can go into Ulduar, so maybe it seems less special. Looking at 2.x:2.2 was nothing special (in-game voice chat)2.3 was ZA and some leveling improvements2.4 was all good3.2 should bring a new dungeon and updates to the tournament. I don't know if 3.3 or 3.4 is Lich King.I think the big difference between 2 and 3 is how fast we're burning through content.

Everything is an utter cakewalk except for Ulduar, and there are no world bosses.

Wow. I was there for 2.1. Now you've made 3.1 look even worse, IMO.I *still* use my Skettis mount as my main mount - my favorite in the game. I ran two toons to exalted with the Skyguard.My main became Queen of the Ogres. I liked the 'attunement' chain of 5-man bosses, and the quests were pretty fun.I finally went back an completed Netherwing recently, after Wrath but before 3.1 (they have my wife's favorite mount). Nothing compares to the Booterang! The 'gimmicks' of 2.1 were the flying bombing and additional use of an early form of phasing (changing form in the Netherwing area, Ogres changing to neutral and changing their 'death text') - which I personally prefer to the Wrath 'gimmick' of vehicles. And another nice 'gimmick' with the 2.1 quests your toon started getting compliments from factions as they moved up the honor ranks.And I never even made it into BT, since I wasn't in a raiding guild at the time.
