Wow is not fun, it's conditioning. There's a difference.
Dynamic events are so much better than traditional questing that I'm actually surprised Bliz didn't make them the focus of MoP. While most of the things anet has added aren't exactly new, the implementation truly is revolutionary in online gaming.
Just face it already.. wow is a good game now and it was good when it came out. Just because you are bored of it dont mean it's bad for everyone.
For gw2.. Havent played it yet, but will do so when it comes out! I also play wow and other mmos & games, so I got alot to do I guess:P

Am I the only one who really doesn't like the leveling in this game? Like, meh.
You do those Public Quests Warhammer style and ... they aren't enough. I found myself several times being at least 3 levels below the one recommended for my personal story or the next PQ. The only option? Run around aimlessly, hoping for some NPC to tell you about an event you already did 4 times to complete it again to hopefully gain a level.
Just glad I can insta-pop 80 and PvP right away. :|
The problem is that you only played for an hour. I loved Age of Conan when it came out. The first hours were amazing, it was the rest that didn't hold up.
One hour means very, very little in the grand scheme of things. I also played in the beta some months ago and was not impressed. I had a full weekend of play and spent maybe a day on it, after that I was bored. I will still buy it and give it another go, but I didn't get that "amazing" feeling at all.

Gw2 is to me right now what was wow back in 2005, the feeling of playing a new, innovative (well wow wasnt innovative but that was my first mmo of this type so...) and incredible game.
I'll probably be bored at one point too. Probably sooner than wow even, but thats not because wow would be better; WoW just plays the addictive-card and "can't get anything unless you play 4hours"-card very well :/
GW2 was an awesome experience, and let me remind you that my first hour didn't even scratch the surface of this game. It was a rushed experience because I had a limited amount of time to try and explore and get into some combat.
But I did walk away from that first hour of being amazed...and this is only the beginning area! Do you understand that the game will only get better and better as the difficulty increases? The dungeons, the storyline etc..I mean like I said in my original post, I am blown out of the water by this game.
As far as someone in here saying about being confused in combat with the auto attacking. Someone might be able to a for sure answer, but there might be an option to turn on enemy names or health bars to always show. This might help eliminate some confusion.
The first DE i played i was just amazed at the amount of enemies everyone was fighting, it was really quite fun. Sometimes you may just need to take a step back an access what is going on.
Again coming from a person who has played WoW since Vanilla (off and on) and I actually did find some aspects of the game to be fun, this game has something magical going on with it.
Threa from Thrall?
OT: Yes, GW2 is amazing, even though the animations, and emotes are a tad awkward.
