I think there's a lot of story arcs in Wrath that tend to be forgotten now that the expansion is over.The war vs the Lich King, you step off a boat and are enlisted. You fight alongside soldiers, many of which don't make it. This stuff takes you through several zones, into the Icecrown zone and even into the citadel itself. Overall arc, to be sure, but there's also...Quest a bit in Borean Tundra, learn that the Blue Dragons are doing Bad Stuff. Help a red try to stop them, enter her prison and put her down when she fails. Take your revenge (later) on the head of the blue's.Discover the machinations of an old god, discover the truth behind some of the origins of the species (gnomes, humans), fight the old god to stop him, fight Algalon to save the world, again!The worgen are a part of the lich king arc, really, as is Drakuru as mentioned above, but they are still well developed parts of such.Wrath had a lot of important questlines that told important stories.

It also occurs to me that what they needed for cataclysm was also a way to level from 80-85 in the old content just added, to let that hero of yesteryear go back to a (level 80) Redridge and see the bridge finished, rahter than fighting Shnotzis

@ vocenoctum - To your second point, yes! I agree wholeheartedly! The exp to hit level 81 could have been gained by a long quest chain that involved you going through some of the redone zones, doing level 80 quests that eventually led up to the assault on Hyjal or Vashj'ir. Each race could have had a different chain which took them to the zones relevant to their race. This could have served to answer some of the questions regarding the time gap between WOTLK and Cataclysm.Of course, this is an option at level 1; however it would have brought some much needed expac cohesion to come home from Northrend at level 80; briefly explore the 'new' world via questing, learn some background about what's happened while you were gone as opposed to just jumping off the boat basically, and heading to Hyjal.

Don't forget, our finding out about Malygos going nuts and killing him had a bigger impact than anything else short of killing Arthas. His madness hid the fact that he KNEW where Deathwing was and was holding him there. His magic was keeping Deathwing from coming back. Big bad knew if he came back in he'd have to break through the wards Malygos put in place to hold him. Not only would that weaken him, but he'd be staring at a very angry Aspect along with 2-3 flights of dragons all itching to rip his armor off the moment he got out. That's right folks. We helped cause the Cataclysm.
