I've also been in the same boat since Cata dropped. I've compensated by:Reconfirming that I'm terrible at PvP.Old school raids.Trying to 1-man Archavon with my hunter or DK.Bought Portal 2.Plan on buying LA Noire.Just a few examples. I also plan to compensate for other things by purchasing an extremely expensive and impractical sports car, but that's neither here nor there.

I love this answer. I think it happens in steps though, too, right? It took me a while to realize that I was burned out, but in the interim, I got all of the archaeology achievevements... got crushed in pvp (time and time again)... and bashed my head against the same raid bosses over and over (and over). And then I thought... why am I doing this? This feels like work.The way around it? I too bought (and thoroughly enjoyed) Portal 2. Finally got around to writing that white paper I'm been working on. Rediscovered Civilization 5, Master of Orion 2 and Alpha Centauri. Played the God of War series from start to finish. Learned to cook.Canceled my sub for the time being - I'm not going to say that I'm never coming back, but there are definitely other (more fun) things to do these days.

@JestinYup, definitely happens in stages. I don't know about steps - my variances get a little erratic. :)Point is, if the game starts feeling like anything other than a game (eg: a grind, a job, a kick to the junk, etc.) then change something. Play less if you must. Or play differently. Whatever tickles your fancy.
