I can only share my own recent experience as one example of how WoW is changing - but not dying by any means. After two years on Farstriders my guild imploded after a few months of drama and chaos. I was burned out on the game, burned out on my guildies, burned out on the drama. So I decided to try something new and transferred to a PvP server. It was fun, but the turning point was running into a group of lvlers who had all just started playing this year. That little group has turned into a 100 account 130 toon guild with exactly TWO players (including myself) that played prior to WotLK. I latched onto the core group and had to train myself to not let my cynicism interfere with their sense of wonder and discovery. We have a pretty steady influx of newly minted players, and half of my fun is helping them lvl and listening to them on vent when they run DM or Gnomer for the very first time!I do think many aspects of the game have changed from my own preferences, and I recognize also that my own proficiency and experience make things easy to me that are hard to newer players. WoW will be with us for a long time to come!
