As I have mentioned numerous times in this article, the bosses in the newest dungeons are generally considered to be pushovers. However, despite this, it still doesn’t hurt to have a general idea of what you are up against before you get there. Read a strategy, watch a video, or have a friend describe the boss fight to you, as long as when you walk into that instance you feel confident that you have a general idea of what is in store for you. Besides upping the chances of a boss kill, there is another benefit to learning strategies with the WoW Raid Finder. All players in the raid knowing the strategies instance will ensure less down time for explanations, which means more potential boss kills and more loot for everyone, not to mention less time spent twiddling your thumbs.
It is true that most of my WoW Raid Finder experiences so far have been postive (knock on wood), however, there is always that one guy in every group. You know the one I’m talking about. The player who ignores the leader, screams “GOGOGOGO” over vent when the healers are getting mana, pulls before the tank, and who typically makes it his or her primary mission to annoy every single person in the raid. These players are unavoidable and chances are you will meet more than a few of them along the way. Don’t judge the WoW Raid Finder by these players as they are by far the minority, instead kick them from your group and continue merrily along your way without giving a second thought to these dregs of WoW society.
The fact of the matter is, for the WoW raid finder to be totally successful, each and every player using it needs to treat the raids they are a part with as much seriousness as they would when attending a raid with friends or guild. By following the tips and tricks above, you will be a part of the solution to preventing those disastrous groups that all of us dread. Have some WoW Raid Finder tips and tricks of your own?
