We take a look at just how many more players were able to down Heroic Ragnaros and clear Normal Firelands. Data was looked at for over 2.7 million level 85 characters, most of them being in the US.
It cracks me up when people say over and over again in this forum that the majority of the player base is raiding.
These people have no idea that what the majority of the player base is doing is questing below level 85 on a single character. And enjoying it, because it's pretty and new to them.
Blizzard goes to a lot of trouble to create quality end-game content that the great majority of its players will never see for various reasons. I don't mind at all that they are continually trying to come up with ways to make end-game content more enjoyable and accessible (to new players, it's neither), while still catering to the desires of the vocal "serious" players who are much fewer in number.
