I think it's also important to differentiate between "hardcore" and "raiding". You can be a hardcore PvP'er, a hardcore gold-capper, or a hardcore pet collector. Personally, I think the Insane and Exalted reputation achievements are pretty hardcore, because they require hundreds of hours of work and most of it provides no reward other than progress toward the title. Conversely, there are plenty of casual raiders out there. As others have said, it's not so much a matter of what you do or how much time you spend doing it, but your reasons and attitude.My realm has a couple of casual raiding guilds that run Firelands and Dragon Soul weekly. They have a standard calendar, but nobody's obligated to show up, so if they come up short they grab people from Trade chat. They care about item level, gems, enchants, flasks, and buff food, but the important thing is that you can survive and contribute. They care about progression, but they don't kick people for making good-faith mistakes. Essentially, I consider them casual because their reason for raiding is to have fun.
