Casual Guild Raiding in Firelands

Tankspot always has great vids on many raids and during their current Q & A episode they offer some great advice for casual guilds and tackling Firelands. Highly recommended viewing! They also discuss avoidance, why Tankspot doesnt do 10man videos, sitting out for raid progression, playing the spec you want to in raids and a bunch of other cool things.

Joystick have also released a great blog entry for noobie players who are not too sure how to approached the Firelands content.

Instance and Raid Guides For Cataclysm

A comprehensive series of  heroic guides –

5 Man Cataclysm Heroic Instances

25 Man Cataclysm Raiding

– Hogunn


Order of Raid

Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, then Throne of the Four Winds. Do Omnitron and Halfus/Valiona & Thelarion first, then Conclave. After that, I’d hit up Magmaw followed by the next 3 in Blackwing, then do the Council in Bastion. Nefarian is considered to be the easiest of the three end bosses, so do him then Cho’gall then Al’akir.

New Raid Guides

Two new raid guides well worth looking at –

Conclave of the Wind

Baradin Hold


– Hogunn


” You stood in WHAT?!”

We spend most of our playing lives avoiding anything that appears on the ground but since cataclysm alot has changed.  Here is really useful list of things that are OK to stand in during an instance/raid.

A must read.

Thanks,
