That’s what Kendricke says:
Time is my enemy. I recognize that the most important number on any raid is not the mitigation of my tank, the health of my target, or the damage of my raid force – it is time I have left on this raid.
This is at the beginning of an essay he calls “My Raiding Manifesto.” In some ways, I think its pretty accurate. Raidleaders and raiders in general have to be very focused to be successful. Which is why I’m not a raider. Honestly, I think it could be fun to learn to raid well with the right group of people. I’ve even dreamed of doing it myself. But I read this and I think, do I really want spend all my waking hours thinking about raiding?
I find little fault with Kendricke, although he didn’t put in one thing which I think is likely true.
All through this, I must maintain a good attitude and try to ensure that while we’re being successful, we’re also having fun.
I strongly suspect Kendricke does this. I know some other raid leaders who do it, or maybe its just such a part of them. I respect them, and I respect their raiders. I just don’t want to do it. Go read.
