Is it worth it or not?
You could play a different MMO that has free expansions...

The thing is original WoW is level 1-60 areas
Burning Crusade is lvl 61-70 area + Blood Elf/Draenei Race
Wrath of the Lich King is 71-80 area + Death Knight Class
and Cataclysm is 81-85 area + Goblins/Worgen

So what everyone's saying is UNLESS you insist on being a goblin or Worgen, you're better off buying the battlechest and playing the level 1-70 content first
then wait for a deal or buy the WOTLK expansion when you get up to it.
After you hit 80, then you can consider the Cataclysm expansion

buying all 4 at once without any guarantee you'll enjoy the game is a waste of $$

cant play a death knight untill you have another character at lvl 55 anyway, sorry.

the reason you shouldnt buy WotLK right away is: as I said, you cant create a Death Knight before you have another character at lvl 55 (its 55 right, or 58 or something, I dont remember), so you wont have that option. And you cant access the WoTLK areas before lvl 68 either.
same thing with cataclysm, you cant access the cataclysm content untill youre lvl 78. Although cataclysm does give you the option to be a Worgen or Goblin. So if you feel like paying another 45$ for that option, go right ahead.

Think of it this way: is losing all your friends and destroying your social life and gaining several pounds worth it? No? I thought not.

yeah, because there are no casual players who only spend a few hours a day, and no players have good metabolism or eat healthy/exercise either. And obviously noone has friends who will play with them so they can chat with them while they play.

Seems like a bit of a large investment in something you might put away in 2 days. Buy vanilla and BC. When you reach 55, and want to play Death Knight, buy WOTLK. If you reach 80 and want to go on from there, buy Cataclysm. Do it in steps.

EDIT: And don't listen to the stupid people about losing your life and whatnot. If you're not an idiot, that won't happen.

1) You don't need Cataclysm to see other people's gear. The WoW downloader will download the same game regardless of which expansion you have. The expansion only comes into play when you reach level 60 and want to proceed.

2) You need a character of at least level 55 to create a death knight.
