According to wowprogress, which tracks achievement information from the WoW armoury, a Blizzard run site which tracks all characters above level 10 and tells you pretty much everything about the character, quite a high percentage.
The current tier of raiding has both normal modes, and heroic modes and is VERY VERY difficult in comparison to Wrath of the Lich King content.
Despite this, 94.74% of guilds have killed magmaw - one of the first two bosses in the Blackwing Descent raid dungeon. Infact, 48% of guilds logged on wowprogress (it logs almost all guilds, as any guild which is found on the armoury is added automatically) have completely cleared the Bastion of Twilight instance. Fewer (only 29%) have killed the last boss of Blackwing Descent though.
So actually, quite a high percentage of people have done at least some raiding. If you are trying to suggest that the "vast majority"£ of players has never even joined a group in wow, and is "still levelling" then you are VERY VERY VERY much mistaken.
