During Wrath of the Lich King, I tamed my alt-itis and focused narrowly on only one or two characters through most of the expansion so that I could actually raid for once. Once Cataclysm rolled around, however, time constraints (on top of other things relating to the new guild setup, a lack of decent PuGs, all that early weirdness surrounding healing, etc.) completely killed my ability--and then desire--to raid at all.As a result, I willingly relapsed into alt-itis in a big, big way. I now have eight toons I'm working on, every class except warrior & DK, each with a separate tradeskill, and I'm actually kinda having a blast (there were several classes, specs, and professions that I either never tried before or haven't tried in at least a couple years that I'm trying out now, for example). I still run five-man content with guildies on my main, but other than that I'm just alt leveling, tradeskill leveling, and going for whatever achievements can be obtained with a maximum of 3-5 people in heroic dungeon gear. If the opportunity to raid comes up, I'll raid, but it's no longer a priority, and doesn't look very likely (being on a roleplay server where actual roleplaying occurs tends to lead to a lack of solid raiding guilds to run with, but I roleplay and I like my server so I have no intention of leaving).
