I'm so glad there are people who do this first and write strategy guides so my runs aren't torturous acts of banging my head against a wall.

Now if we could just get everyone else to read them.

Unfortunately, at the same time, a lot of people won't get this as their experience:"It's a fun learning experience full of mistakes, dungeon journal reading, and unmitigated excitement."They'll get "Why didn't you watch the YouTube video and/or read up on the fights?" when they join a group.It's not often that one gets to learn about a fight while doing it in this game if you're in a pickup group. You're expected to know all about it and execute it perfectly the first time if you're not among friends. It's a shame really.

Autumn, I agree wholeheartedly. First-hand experience has always been my preferred way to learn because it just drives to home that it's something new and fresh that I'm doing, something I've never seen before. But I got chewed out for the first time ever in a Zul'Gurub dungeon for not knowing the Jin'do fight beforehand some time ago. Seems like people are getting more demanding all the time in this game.This is actually the first time I have ever watched a video of a dungeon prior to actually doing it because now I feel like it's expected of me. I guess I don't mind too much though, that was a fun watch.

I kinda agree with you both. I love the discovering and learning by trial and error when I'm with my guild mates. In PuGs, however, I will look up the tactics beforehand because I know that, outside of the first few hours after the dungeon has gone live, there will be people who've already done it, and it gets old very very quickly having to explain complicated tactics or wiping on the same mistakes over and over again when one has already gone through that "learning experience". Everything has its time and place, imho :-)
