I really do think that Wrath is going to be a HUGE disappointment for dedicated raiders. Burning Crusade went live with 4 25-man raids, while I suspect that Wrath will be released with just 2 (yes those two will have 10-man versions, so they can claim there are 4 raids available on release, but still). So far we have seen just Naxx10 go up for testing, and supposedly we're marching quickly towards the expansion's release. Time is running short to implement more raids beyond Naxx and whatever the second will be. It's pretty clear to me that Blizzard has done the math and decided that casual content and arena are much more important to its future than hardcore raiding (plus the expense of designing and balancing a new season of arena gear is vastly less than designing and testing a new set of raids). As someone who has spent the last year and a half raiding (and yet can't break a 1700 arena rating to save my life), I am not looking forward to Wrath as much as I would like to be.

If there are less raids on release day, I'm sure they'll put out more content patches to keep everybody happy
