I don't know about you, but since last September or October, I've had people tell me in game that "Cataclysm's coming", "beta is imminent", "why are we doing this, we'll just have to level again". Hell, my own guild forums already has a thread with people planning on grouping together for dungeon grinding for an expansion that's not yet in beta.The "carrot" of a new expansion means people are already aware that what they're doing currently in game will be devalued massively the day Cataclysm hits the stores. So, why bother do anything other than make gold? Gold's the *only* thing in game which will have any relevance once the xpac drops. If Blizzard really wants people to raid, make every boss drop 1k gold. Watch the people flock to raid guilds.

My guild's lost a few people to "I'm coming back when Cata comes out," even though they've not downed the Lich King yet. I might understand not bothering if every gear slot I had was filled with heroic 25 man ICC gear, but some of these people are barely geared for ICC 10. People can be so silly sometimes.

Except that outside of a very narrow scope, gold is useless. I am goldcapped and have nothing I desire to spend gold on. If you want to do GDKP, then sure fine, do that. Or get your mammoth or so forth. But very soon you'll figure out, hey i can't do anything with my 100k gold.
