I did the over the top raiding grind in Wrath. I was running ICC 2-4 times a week on 10 man and 1-3 times a week on 25, plus we had some "fun" raids such as old BC raids and Ulduar drake runs going on as well. I was so far beyond burnt out I didn't even know it. Things irl came a-knockin' and I found myself without a steady internet connection for nearly 8 months, then it was another 1-2 months before I could get back into WoW. The whole time I basically tried to hear any whispers of Cataclysm (my friends were great at giving me the spoilers) and once I was back online I found myself getting wrapped up in both the blogging world and the world of forums, two things I had never touched when I was busy with running a guild and doing 10 million raids a week (the blogosphere is awesome, I recommend getting into it if you like reading excellent writing about WoW).I've been back into WoW now for little over a month and I'm so very much in love with Cataclysm. I detest the dungeons, but I love this expansion. I've always hated questing, but now I find myself working on Loremaster because the revamped/new quests are engaging and full of pleasant surprises. I can't even stomach the thought of raiding currently, so my drive for PvE oriented end game stuff is a bit dead, but I'm finding myself falling in love with PvP all over again.My advice is to find something in the game that interests you outside of raiding and get into it. Whether it's farming to reach some gold cap, exploring the world of Azeroth for the numerous amounts of amazing Easter eggs, doing up quests, knocking out achievements, or collecting the greatest pimp set ever to be found in the game of WoW, just find something that catches your fancy and dig in. If all else fails, temporarily suspend your account until you feel that Azeroth itch (my, that sounds bad...) start up again.
