I actually just signed back up for WoW after seeing the WotLK patch. I'm only trying for a month, and I'm not buying the expansion until I've seen it thoroughly.
I do agree that it sucks to depend on 24 other people to get the best gear/see the best content. I think instead of having 10-man and 25-man, maybe all raids are 15. I'd also like to see quicker instance cooldowns (Karazhan more than once per week).
It would be nice to be able to solo and get close to end-game gear. What this entails is having not just more solo content, but higher solo content.
In any case, whenever you log in and just wait for something to happen, it's a boring game, pure and simple.
