The issue isn't the grind. Its the fact that most of us have been playing the game for years. We have multiple max level toons & crafters. Not even counting the myriad started / completed / deleted toons we've all made for one reason or another. We've quested, fought, raided, dungeoned our way through Norrath so much that now anything we do just seems like a grind. And now we wait around for new content every year. If you are feeling like this...take a break for awhile. Does wonders for your attitude when you do come back.
