In the month or two before The Burning Crusade came out, I had a goal. I wanted the Frostwolf Howler, and I would do anything to get it. The "anything" I had to do was run Alterac Valley over and over and over to raise my reputation with the Frostwolf Clan. Alterac Valley was a lengthy Battleground in vanilla WoW, with one instance often lasting an hour or more. I still miss those times, even with all the grinding, because I loved the PvE aspect of it -- especially summoning the Ice Lord to decimate the Alliance.
Right now, I am mostly playing the MoP beta and SWTOR. I've been meaning to get more characters to max level, but I just haven't gotten around to it. And when Diablo III comes out, well, it will be difficult playing any other game for a bit.
So what are you doing while you wait for Mists of Pandaria? Are you playing the beta? Does another game have your attention? Are you enjoying a different aspect of the game (like PvP) from what you normally play? Or are you just doing what you've always done, perfectly happy to be patient until the new expansion?
