yeah, sure the dailies are beginning to get repetitive but i am exalted with every single faction anyways so i just don't do the dailies since doing a full t14 lfr nets me 450 vp and a daily heroic+daily scenario gives 120 vp, on top of that i also kill between 8-9 raid bosses a week in normal mode ( haven't gotten past amber shaper on normal yet and have only killed windlord on rare occasions ) so suffice to say i don't need dailies to get capped.
Pre Mop :
I had my Lock, hunter and DK in full LFR Gear. My plan was to level a monk after 1 of those 3 hit level 90 (likly the DK because i like my DK). I had Gold, Bags, Heirloom Gear (with Ring) with enchants ready for Mop.
Mop Launch :
Unholy became shit so i leveled as blood (slow as shit but NOTHING could kill me), Spent a ton of time mining in order to build up more gold and level Eng. Did alittle ach and told myself that if i get the polearm i would stop leveling my DK and level my monk. Guess what was my next find :P. So i bough the hierloom pants, leveled my panda and became a memeber of the horde.
Leveling was fast (i believe i had +45% EXP at all times and i used the Monk daily for the extra 100% when i knew i had the time) got to level 30 in like 2 hours, and then spent the next 3 days having a blast with pet battles. Got to max level in another 2 weeks.
Monks are fun but need some love (coming in 5.2), leveling alts has never been so painful, my hunter is a bar from 86 and my DK is sitting at 88. My gold has never been this low (from 90k to 4....) but i am playing a shadow priest (pvp) and leveling her only in BGs and that has been a ton of fun. Pet battles are awesome and the never raid drops are fun side quests to do on a slow day, soloing raids for drops is another fun activity.
All in all i am still having fun

I think that long time players are maybe just feeling a bit burnt out of WoW. Time for WoW2.....
It would be way more fun if there weren't those constant M2Shared.cpp line 402 game crashes about every hour after flying across the continent or after teleporting out of a completed raid.
They seriously need to fix their goddam memory leaks.
Mope is not very fun. After doing all the dailies you are burnt out and don't feel like playing anymore.
Never had so much to do in wow since wotlk.
To be honest wow is kinda low on my play list right now but yes im still enjoying it, even though im only giving it an hour or so a day tops. Most days less.
I think people that try to do everything are the ones getting burnt out. There is so much to do. If you do it all - you get burnt out. So if you can't trottle back your inclination to complete everything (aka have some self control), you are at risk of burn out.
Even if you wanted to place a time limit on it there is not so much to do that you can't see it all in a matter of months (if not shorter). No reason to stretch it out other than to just give blizzard more money for a game your not getting the most out of. I doubt many want to pay blizzard for a game there not fully playing.
The game we not designed around all these activities for you to do, pay to access them and then not do them.
As far as people and smart phones goes there are clearly people who have phones smarter than them if your logic is having it and not using it's features.
You pay access to a game to play it. Might as well play what it has to offer.
