We present our estimate for the charm quark's contribution to the equation of state and to the fluctuations of conserved charges. Our results are based on simulations with dynamical charm at physical quark masses. We also address the question, to what extent staggered simulations are reliable. We give comparisons with the Wilson formulation as well as with results using dynamical overlap fermions.
