    The reason a lot of people are seeing the wrong timer, is that it's created in Javascript (thus clientside).

    The countdown uses your current computers time to calculate the time left. If the clock on the computer is wrong, the timer will be off.

    Ah, that would explain it. I have my Windows partition set to GMT because that's how Ubuntu likes to have it. (Windows is dumb and always wants to set the clock to local time instead of universal modified by time zone.)

    does ppl remember that dailies got nerfed on 4.0.1... so dont expect good exp.. for sure will waste more time turning the quest for ~300k exp that is will be useless since lvls will be of 6m+ exp(@83+)...

    Actually AN Heroic give near 200k exp (@ least was that on beta) and its doable in less than 10 mins... sadly you cant spam same heroic over and over
