Every player plays the game for different reasons.
Some players prefer shopping for items for the sake of having those items.
Some players prefer grinding endlessly because they love the combat.
Some players hunt for achievements and nothing else.
Some players like brawling/PvP.
Some players build up stats and test their characters out in-game over and over.
Some players play and explore the game's contents for the sake of playing the game.
Some players flip items for the sake of making some pocket change (or more).
You get the idea.
Regardless of what state the game's in, there's always something
to do. While obviously you can't do the same thing forever, all I can suggest for people that have quit and are lurking, or plan on quitting, is to be open and embrace new ideas.
I used to be strictly AH. I just spent hours on end looking for items to tack onto my wizard. I jsp'd, bribed people on Diabloprogress, stalked other users for their items, cornered them, and ripped their prized possessions off of them. But I didn't really play much other than getting my wizard to paragon 100. That was all.
But then I decided to try other wizard builds. I decided to experiment with different skill sets based on the items that I've managed to accumulate over time. It wasn't like I had X amount of gear and just ran Archon all day all night. I played with SNS. Meteor. Sleet Storm. Arcane Torrent-based builds. Blizzard builds. Wacky builds like my ninja build. Disintegrate. Wave of Force. On and on and on.
I ran ubers for a while. Got bored, so I leveled other classes. Explored them for a while to get a better grasp of them. Did my best to understand terms and conversations the classes are having. Achievement hunted. Oh, lots of achievement hunting. YouTube videos. Lots of video work. Photoshop. Loved playing with screenshots. Always went back to the wizard to cycle through the activities.
Now grinding paragon levels on other classes. I'm probably going to level another female wizard to 100 after my monk/WD and do some joint video projects with PieHole if possible. Then level the barb and DH to 100 before the next patch/expansion. All with some periodic shopping when I have the funds in hand. More crafting because I still want those dream gloves. Still waiting for that lottery ticket item as well, so I keep on playing.
So back to my point. There's always something to do. If case 1 doesn't appeal to you, go for case 2, if not case 2, then case 3. Get bored of cases 4-5, maybe case 1 seems fun again so you go back to it.
