As someone who has tried a lot of different MMOs over the years, I'd warn you against cutting ties completely. Even if the game is fun, balanced, engaging, etc. if can still be a total failure. I did what you are describing when WAR came out, had a blast for the first few months, then the game died. Same has happened to almost every "WoW Killer" over the years. It doesn't require a huge amount of time invested to get to the point where your only play time in WoW needs to be dailies and raids. Right now, with casual play, I log on for about an hour a day and do my dailies (while in dps queue) and daily heroic. In addition, throw in 2-3 days of raiding at two hours a run and you're looking at 10-12 hours a week scaling down to 4-6 once you start downing 6-7 bosses a week or so. If you can't commit that amount of time, then MMOs in general probably aren't for you.Another suggestion would be to tell your guild that you will be playing RIFT until 4.2. If you guys are JP capped, you should be able to jump into that tier of raiding quicklyThat said, if Cata is just too hard for you then you might want to move elsewhere. This isn't as casual friendly as Wrath was, and I don't see that changing.
