I'm leveling up a new character and I feel like I've missed some important quests.
I'm at level 77 now and I haven't been able to get the Wrathgate quest. I'm ahead of my level for quests, and I'm skipping a couple zones. I'm alliance on Illidan, by the way.
What I'm looking for is similar to this:
But for WotLK, Cataclysm, and the new expansion.
Can someone please give me some resources so I don't miss out on the most important quests?
Thanks so much.

The wrathgate quest only opens up at the end of the Dragonblight zone. The quest line ends at the end of wrathgate, the next stage of that quest line "battle for undercity" has been removed from the game.
Go back, turn on the "low level quests" option in your mini-map, and finish up those quests you left behind in Dragonblight, then you'll be able to do the wrathgate quest.
With many of the quest zones being streamlined now, there's very little in the way of "hidden quests". The only one I can think of that may be kinda hidden is the random drop in Westfall that starts the westfall treasure hunt quest chain.
There aren't any. There are no quest chains anywhere in the game that are required other than those in the instanced starting areas (goblin, worgen, pandaren, death knight). You can level from 1-90 entirely in dungeons, battlegrounds, or heck even through farming herbalism/mining nodes if you really wanted to. There are some quests that are required for a certain reps, if you care about that rep, but most players don't care about reps from the older content.
If by "have to do" you mean "OMG this quest chain is so awesome and epic it's a shame to skip it" well, everyone is going to have their own list of those. And while there may be significant overlaps between such lists, no two lists are going to be in complete agreement.

Quite honestly, there aren't any that you have to do.
There are no quests which are really important, unless you want to unlock specific vendors which require questing to unlock.
Perhaps it would benefit you to do the Loremaster achievements for each zone if you don't want to miss anything?
(Keeping in mind that even once you've obtained the achievement for each zone, most zones will still have more quests available)
The best quest chain I can think of, starts with a hard to obtain drop Battered Hilt
At 77, you can go to K3 and speak with Gretchen Fizzlespark inside the inn to pick up "They Took Our Men!", which starts the Sons of Hodir questline and provides backstory for Ulduar. And 76 is when the "Where in the World is Hemet Nesingwary?" breadcrumb becomes available from Archmage Pentarus near the FP in Dalaran, which gets you started in Sholazar Basin; killing Pitch (http://www.wowhead.com/npc=28097, whether or not you're sent to check on him first) starts the quest chain that leads to doing dailies for the Oracles or Frenzyheart. I don't remember how the Icecrown questing starts, but IIRC there's a breadcrumb to the Argent quest hub near Dalaran, that may be part of Loremaster.
80-85 is pretty linear, although from what I understand the experience needed to reach 85 has been reduced so you probably won't do all of those zones either, and you'd need to choose between Hyjal and Vash.
Another option is to poke around Wowhead and check the comments for various zones, individual quests, and the quest achievements. And you can always turn off your EXP gain for a while by speaking with Slahtz in Org, if you want to prevent out-leveling places so often.
Also, Wrathgate starts fairly early in Dragonblight, and involves most of the questing there. This shows the Horde chain progression, with "Darkness Stirs" and up being the removed content:

Also, just in case your curious about a listing of all the quests in a zone, wowhead will list them when you look up particular zones. While this won't immediately show the chain, looking at particular quests will if it is part of a chain.
77 Orc Hunter
There are several addons now that will tell you what quests you haven't completed in a zone. Questcompletionist comes to mind, but there are others.
wowhead.com will show you where a quest sits within a chain and has links to all the others within the chain.
