Mists of Pandaria: Quick Guide To Dungeon Bosses
One thing that most players probably hate about doing dungeons with a random squad is probably that ‘one’ guy who goes ahead and pulls all the NPCs (boss included) towards you.
You would be writing as fast as you could, informing your squad mates about how to bring this boss done. However, that ‘one’ guy will always be there who is going to shout LEEROY JENKINS!! and goes right in… dying a few seconds later and taking you along with him as well.
The following is a quick guide as to what you need to do against the dungeon bosses. These do not cover every stage and aspect of the boss fight, just enough to give your team an idea of what to do.
