The really big problem, I think, is that there are too few new 80-85 dungeons. Heroic versions of SFK and DM were probably meant to help that issue, but that doesn't help the issue of regular dungeons and how few of them are actually relevant at 85. Honestly, the whole initial Cataclysm patch feels rather lean on 80-85 content--the zones can be completed in no time, and the dungeons have started to get old very fast. I really hope that we see ICC amounts of new content in 4.1 and future content patches.I am not going to gripe about it though, because I think Blizz had their plates very, very full as it is. I'm sure a lot of the "Cataclysm" budget was spent fixing the 1-60 game, and that will be good for the overall health of the game, I think. But it is a bit anemic at the endgame right now.

I honestly think we all got spoiled because they released the 1-60 game before the rest of it. I see a lot of people complaining the 80-85/endgame seems lacking, which is a fair complaint tbh, but I don't think we'd be seeing nearly as much complaining if ALL of Cata had come out at once.On the one hand, new content was desperately needed by November, most people I knew were bored sick if they hadn't already suspended their accounts till Cata. I also think getting the whole 1-60, PLUS 80-85, PLUS two new races, PLUS more class/race combos would have been overload. Too much to do, I'd have no idea where to start.On the other hand, it made all that work feel like a new content patch, instead of a hefty chunk of an expansion. It made paying 40 bucks for Cata seem kind of empty, and I think its fair to say the 85 experience is a little emptier than many people would like. GC, to his credit, noted in his dungeon blog that they felt like they didn't add enough 85 content.The great thing is that everything from here on out is all endgame, all (or most) new content will be directed at lvl 85, and Blizz has mentioned on many occasions they plan to release new 5-mans with every content patch.
