Brevity is important when in a raid situation. To that, I wholeheartedly agree. Reading this site is not a raid, and should not be written as such, however. Going off on the situation the writer finds himself in doesn't "belabor the point", it sets the tone. Besides that, Rossi has always been about balancing the important points of his posts with a level of humor and entertainment so that we don't get bored reading a text-book. It's called "The Care and Feeding of Warriors", not "How to Play Warrior". Even the title sets that tone.That having been said, raids and dungeons that go smoothly and efficiently are certainly satisfying, but they can also be horribly boring if everyone is a robot. That same level of balance can improve enjoyment of the game.I sadly got into the game late and missed all of the craziness of the raids my two WoW vet friends frequented in Vanilla. They could have tried a little harder to include me in their leveling groups, but they were impatient, and had too much invested in the end-game content with their mains. That always bugged me, but not because I was being left out of leveling with them. Their weekly raid stories were always hilarious. From something a guildy said over vent, to something that went ridiculously wrong in a raid that was funny. EVEN if it resulted in a wipe, it was something to laugh at. I you can't enjoy yourself, then the victories are hollow. If you CAN, then even defeat can be entertaining.In other words, enjoy the post, and take what information you can from it. Don't dissect it so much that you miss the point.
