I think it depends on the size of the raid, and what is really expected out of the raid. In a 25 man raid, if people were constantly cracking jokes, I would be annoyed when I needed to relay important information. With 10 man raids, it is much easier to get a word in without talking over someone. Obviously there are circumstances that nullify this, but this is a generalization.Also, if the guild is working on progression, I believe most people come to their senses and quiet down, however, if its something trivial, people feel more comfortable to talk. Obviously there are places where the raid leader needs to be heard, but generally if its on farm, most people already know that I am about to say Locust Swarm.Thirdly, it depends on the atmosphere. I run with roughly the same 10-12 people every week. We know each other pretty well. Some of us talk too much, some of us make jokes when I need to relay instructions. But its also expected, we are there to have fun. I think this is the biggest factor. How comfortable the raid and raid leader coexist well running. I like the safety dance over vent during Heigan. It's funny, but I can understand why someone else would disapprove of it.
