Raid Guides

Postby Fathammer » Thu Nov 06, 2008 6:51 pm

Hi,

I am looking for a good place to look up raid guides for WotLK. I am going to be a tank so i think its important for me to know the fights...right?

If anyone could direct me to a good site that would be very helpful thanks

Historically this one has - I'll be tactful - based most of its strategies on the assumption that only warriors would be tanking. We'll see with LK if they've broadened their horizons at all.

http://www.wowhead.com is not strategy-focused and sometimes contains conflicting information, but it's worth a look.

http://www.tankspot.com has less about overall boss strategies, but they do provide tank-specific detail which is often missed in other guides.

I haven't used http://www.thottbot.com or http://www.allakhazam.com in a while now because the wowhead interface is so shiny, but they've served with honor for many years.

Blizzard has - they've said - based most of raid encounters around the assumption that warriors would be tanking. We know that with LK they've broadened their horizons.

We do. But do the bosskillers people know, too? ;)

Bosskillers guides are in almost every case written by whoever submitted them first for the monetary prize. There are not "regular authors" as far as I know, which is why they vary widely in format, quality, and accuracy.

Nevertheless, Bosskillers is a pretty good resource if you know nothing about a fight. You just have to know how to use an imperfect tool. Wowwiki on the other hand almost never has any relevant information.

I must disagree with that. No Wowwiki isn't a guide to the fight but it does give a good listing of phases and abilities. In fact I prefer to send our run of the mill raiders there for their read up we don't have deal with 20 people saying "But the guide I read said we should....". Just make sure you are reading the tactics section and not the lore secton for some of the bosses.
