It's the very seriousness of the subject at hand that demands brevity and order.Think of writing the same way one thinks of raiding. Serious raiding involves a very precise, efficient flow from trash pack to trash pack, minimizing any tangents or delays in order to reach the end point as fast as reasonable risk allows. There a crucial balance between risk and time efficiency involved that must always be navigated.Serious writing is much the same way. The topics you're attempting to cover are very often of an extreme depth. By nature, you can not afford to meander around or belabor the point. For that reason each paragraph and sentence needs to have a clear purpose. Sentences or paragraphs which do not are excess which will clutter the thought process of your readers and detract from your point.So consider, in an article with the clear purpose of elaborating on Warrior threat, was it necessary to spend the first two paragraphs on how the author constantly changes glyphs, respecs, and deals with gear mismatch issues without a single mention of threat?There isn't one answer to that question, but in this case it's my opinion that the purpose of this article would have been better served by trimming the excess.
