The exact same thing happened to me, and to be honest, I didn't deal with it. I tried to stay, I really did. I played alts - got my three 80s to 85, got my lower leveled characters into either Outlands or Northrend and I started a couple of new characters and got them through a decent chunk of 0-60. I dabbled in the auction house. I leveled archeology. I worked on the achievements I'd missed out on from previous expansions that I could now solo or duo with a friend. And none of it worked.The majority of my problem was time constraints - I couldn't guarantee that I'd be online for the next two hours, so I was lucky if I could queue for a 5 man heroic, let alone try and schedule a raid in advance like I did in Wrath. Eventually, I just didn't think the cost justified what I was actually doing in game - I wasn't enjoying it, it was all stop gap stuff. I was bored and coasting, waiting for that time when I might have enough to time play again properly, that time that I doubted would ever come. It was all stuff that would be useful if I could raid again, but without the raiding there was little point in it - I was just playing wow for playing wow's sake, not because I wanted to.So I left. And to be honest I've loved it. I've started playing LotRO because it's free and leveling through entirely new stuff is very easy to dip in and out of, even for only 20 minutes at a time. I've been able to go through all my older games that I never quite finished - or even never really started - because something in WoW always drew me back. I imagine I'll come back at some point - probably patch 4.3 or something when there's enough solo content that I can dip in and out of without getting bored or feeling like I'm wasting my time.
