I despise raiding and every bit of development time that goes into it, but that doesn't mean I find dailies "engaging" at all. I am all for having dailies in the game for people who prefer a means of progressing outside group required content, but at the same time, I don't agree with making them a secondary gate for gear bought with currency earned in a variety of content types and certainly think putting bonus rolls for RAIDS on them is just plain stupid.
You should agree since lesser charms are useless to anyone who doesn't do raiding in any form.
On topic: i expect them to have lost NA/EU subs and probably gloss it over with their december handout and chinese sub numbers. They won't have a better quarter in Mists so even if they hold the Sept numbers, they won't going forward.
