I'm in the "non-raider who's bored" boat. I've played since early Vanilla and had the most fun raiding during BC because of the fun of Kara (and subsequent raids). It was easier for me to raid back then because the raids were interesting enough to get more folks raiding (thus I could get into raids despite working on a shift completely opposite of 90% of my guild). Since Wrath and Cata, folks have become disillusioned enough to NOT want to raid (they either don't find the raids interesting [myself included] or they can't get into raids because they can't dedicate the time that folks demand). I don't raid anymore because fewer and fewer folks are raiding when I'm playing. The folks that do are mostly douchey to the point of intolerance, as a result I'm stuck puttering around on alts because I don't feel like being verbally assaulted by groups not satisfied with anyone below ilevel 378. If I had more things to do at 85, I would have more fun with this game. As it is, I play less and less and eagerly await the arrival of The Old Republic.Blizz needs to SERIOUSLY re-evaluate the game at this point (perhaps with an in-game survey) and find out what people are truly interested in. Instead of just tweaking the game to "balance" it around raids and arena play (another POS system, imo--I spent 90% of my time in bgs back in Vanilla, stopped pvping when the old system was scrapped). They need to figure out a way to keep "casuals" (ie: the non-arena and raid farmers) interested in playing if the game is to keep on going until the release their next MMO. There are only so many dailies that people are willing to do and so much sitting in Org/SW trolling /2.

Heaven forbid you should actually get into a T11 raid and have 346 shoulders on,if anyone notices your kicked.
