I love the elitism of these articles. I don't want MoP to come out for a while, there is still way too much stuff to do in Cata (which, frankly, came out too soon for me ...).I want to:- level a rogue (currently at 25)- level a druid (not rolled yet)- run all the 85 heroics on at least one toon (have an ilvl 379 tank that's never done a troll heroic)- get some PvP achievements including at least one "Master", which requires finding a coordinated PvP group- NOT level a warlock (lol), just kill lots of them- do the quests on the Horde side,I could keep going, there is enough content to keep me playing for at least two years, probably longer, WITHOUT an expac. Oh yeah, and kill Arthas too! (I've been in several raid groups - one at lvl 80, 3 or 4 at 85 - that have been there, but I'm always away or working or whatever when they finally down him.

I don't see how people can be bored. I started shortly after BC hit and I'll never run out of things to do. I'd like to get all 16 of my toons to top level, all professions leveled for all of them, get them each a title, ground mount, and flying mount that's good for their character. Plus special projects-I have a mount collector, 2 vanity pet collectors, pets the hunters want to tame, etc. I can't spend as much time on WoW as I'd like. I got only 2 of my toons to 80 before Cata, and I'll be lucky if I get 5 to 85 before Pandaren. And then I'm back to 0/16 and have to relearn how to play every class again because they keep changing everything. If the panda gals are cute I'll want one of those, too, perhaps even one of each faction.

That's what I thought too. Nothing left to do? Maybe if you're playing a single level-capped character, and if your only focus is dungeon and raid content. But that's a tiny fraction of the game. Why not level a toon to 70, freeze EXP, and run TBC heroics the way they were meant to be played? You could also collect mounts, build transmog sets, level naked, earn money, do Ulduar hard modes, multibox, or just hang out and chat. If none of that appeals to you, feel free to walk away for a while. It's a game, not a job.Many of the complaints about Cataclysm are based on the notion that the devs pushed the expansion out before it was ready (unfinished story lines, only five zones, not enough content added in patches...) Do we really want to pressure them to do the same with Pandaria? I'd gladly wait until mid-2013 if it means Pandaria will be a huge continent with 1,500 quests, multiple leveling paths, a dozen new factions (some Horde or Alliance specific), seven brand new dungeons plus a few revamps (with more to be added in patches), meaningful world PvP objectives, and compelling storylines for both Alliance and Horde. There's plenty to keep me busy until then.

Oh, and of course there's the option of playing a different dungeon role. If you've exclusively played DPS, it's hard to understand how important the healer and tank are. If you haven't played a rogue, mage, or hunter, you might not fully understand the benefits of crowd control, and how hard it is to do in this "AOE ALL THE THINGS" environment.
