Why am I bored with so much to do?

General Discussion
I still need to :
Finish storylines for pathfinder
Hit revered with order of embers
Try and kill ghuun heroic
Attempt a +7 mythic
Do normal Uldir

With all that left to do this week I still feel bored everytime I log in. What gives?
Nothing feels rewarding. They took everything about Legion and made it demonstrably worse.
You could try doing some of those things instead of just saying you're bored

You again.

Go spam some more of those WQs you love so much.
As Spellchaser said, you have a lot of stuff to do for little rewards.
Maybe you’re just experiencing burnout.

Happens to everyone.

Might be time to take a break and play/do something else.

This.

Take a break, WoW isn't what it used to be. Best in minor amounts now.
Because you find it meaningless

I have a world quest to get 120 ap
It is something to do yes but not worth my time :)

Because you really don't have a lot of things to do, just the same thing repackaged over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

The issue isn't stuff to do, the issue is stuff you WANT to do. I mean, I got AOTC and quit raiding like a month ago. Frankly doing repeat content over and over for RNG loot chances isn't rewarding, and feels like a chore then a game. These days I barely login

I just did all of that except raiding and the game feels 100% dead to me right now. Hit exalted with all factions.
At this point, it's a content patch waiting game.
the bottom 2 should be done. One them takes 20minutes. You should finsh the storyline...
If you're anything like me. It stems from the specs being so shallow. Get 1 class to 120 and I'm bored of it in a couple hours of playtime. I've never experienced that before in any game. Haven't really logged in for a couple weeks because of it.
The things to do don't feel rewarding to me. I'm already going back to Legion stuff

The game depends on maintaining the illusion that stuff that happens in the game is important. That illusion has failed for you.
Most of the time with W.Q. the reward doesn't worth the gold paid for the flight ,dev=devastator

Blizz reduced gold by over 1/10th from Legion days (world quests, champion boards, combat ally gold equipment). No dopamine hits, no sense of reward.

Elitists play for ilvls. Casuals play for a mix of things (including gold). If I made you ilvl 500 right now you'd be briefly entertained, but gold = opportunities.

The game just sucks. I hate to say it. I love WOW :(
Plays like a mobile game. That's really the problem here.
