Raid Preparation 101

Raiding in World of Warcraft is one of the most satisfying things you can do in the game. Everyone has their own 2 cents to offer on the subject, yet very few people ever truly master this aspect of the game. In fact, if memory serves me right, it was stated that only 3% of the World of Warcraft playing population ever got the chance to experience raiding Naxxramas back when it was the hardest level 60 Raid Instance. Of course, the rules of the game have changed so much since then. The days of the epic 40 man raids has gone and now anyone can assembly a motley crew of 10 hobos to start a 10 man raid. Others don't even bother to join a guild, opting instead to PUG their way through raids, but as we all know it's tough to get a good group together for anything harder than 10 Man Grim Batol. It's pretty safe to say that the key to a successful raid is in preparation. Just take a look at any top-raiding guild in any server ­ so it's hardly surprising to see countless players spending hours of their weeks reading up on boss fights and strategies, watching videos on raid encounters and planning their raiding schedules weeks ahead of time. They practice endlessly ­ training for hours on end, refining every aspect of their game from the tanking to the dps and healing, ensuring everyone is on the same page before even attempting to take on Erudax on Hard Mode. This short guide was written not to help you defeat a specific raid boss (though its contents will greatly assist you in that goal), but rather to prepare yourself properly for raiding by supplying you with the information on the best possible Enchants, Gems and Consumables to bring to a raid. It will also teach you valuable tips on how to get along with your raid members and a general raid composition as you start getting more involved in the PvE aspect of the game. Whether you're a consummate pro or a veritable newbie, this guide can help you smooth away the rough edges of your game and really start to understand what it takes to be the master of your domain whenever you suit up for those 10 and 25 man outings. Take notes and be ready to go headfirst into the deep end ­ it's time to start raiding:

Raiding Preparation : Enchants

Listed below are a list of the most popular enchants in each slot for every class. Appropriate enchants will boost your raid performance significantly and is a must-have for any serious raider. We've gone ahead and done all the research for you, it is now your job to source for these enchants and tell us how it goes. A hunter running around without enchants may as well be naked ­ don't be that hunter. In Cataclysm, a whole slew of new enchants have been added to account for the extra levels in the game, increasing your tanking/DPS and healing abilities SIGNIFICANTLY. Most of the enchantments can be acquired from enchanters in your server or the Auction House (which are usually more expensive but reliable.) Other enchants however require you to grind reputation from certain factions.

Consumables

I can't stress enough the importance of consumables in a raiding environment, especially during those learning encounters where you need to every single member in your raid to perform at their very best. Without a doubt, consumables are a MUST HAVE for any serious raider. Here are a list of consumables for every class, broken down into 4 categories : Flasks Potions Food Elixirs

Consumables for Tanks

Elixirs

There are 2 types of Elixirs in the game, a Battle Elixir or a Guardian Elixir. You can only have one battle and one guardian elixir active at one time. This means that if you imbibe an Elixir while another one is in effect, the new effect will replace the old one. Choose the one that best suits your current build and needs.

Elixir of the Master ­ Grants you +225 Mastery rating Elixir of the Naga­ Grants you +225 Expertise rating Elixir of Impossible Accuracy ­ Grants you +225 Hit rating Elixir of Deep Earth ­ Grants you +900 Armor

Food

For well-geared tanks that are not in need of Hit or Expertise, BeerBasted Crocolisk is your ideal Food. For those who still desire that extra defensive abilities like Dodge and Parry, or are not quite block capped, refer to the bottom 3 options.

Beer-Basted Crocolisk ­ Grants you +90 Strength and +90 Stamina *Recommended* Crocolisk Au Gratin ­ Grants you +90 Expertise rating and +90 Stamina Grilled Dragon ­ Grants you +90 Hit rating and +90 Stamina Blackbelly Sushi ­ Grants you +90 Parry rating and +90 Stamina Lavascale Minestrone ­ Grants you +90 Mastery rating and +90 Stamina Mushroom Sauce Mudfish ­ Grants you +90 Dodge rating and +90 Stamina

Flasks have a duration of 1 Hour and are generally preferred over Elixirs in a raid setting. They differ from Potions and Elixirs because their effects will last even through death. Listed below are the tanking Flasks you will need, depending on your class and current requirements. Remember that Flasks also count as a Battle or Guardian Elixir so choose your options wisely.

Flask of Steelskin ­ Grants you +300 Stamin Flask of Titanic Strength ­ Grants you +300 Strength

Potions

You should always have the requisite top-tier Health and Mana Potions with you at all times and bring a couple of these along if you wish.

Flasks have a duration of 1 Hour and are generally preferred over Elixirs in a raid setting. They differ from Potions and Elixirs because their effects will last even through death.

Consumables For DPS Spellcasters To all the Mages, Warlocks, Elemental Shamans, Shadow Priests and Balance Druids out there, these are the consumables you should be looking at. As one might expect with the new changes to the game mechanics, the most prized stat BY FAR for casters in Cataclysm is Intellect. Elixir choices will not be listed since the Flask grants such a huge boost that it renders the use of Elixirs redundant. Also, unlike Elixirs, the effects of Flasks do not cease upon death.

Food

Severed Sagefish Head ­ Restores 96000 health and 96000 mana over 30 sec. Must remain seated while eating. If you spend at least 10 seconds eating you will become well fed and gain 90 Intellect and 90 Stamina for 1 hour. Seafood Magnifique Feast ­ Restores 96000 health and 96000 mana over 30 sec.

Glyphs

One of the biggest changes brought to the game by Cataclysm is the new glyph system.

Now there are 3 distinct types of glyphs which are divided into

Prime Glyphs Major Glyphs Minor Glyphs

As you increase in level from 25 to 50 and 75, you will be granted an additional Prime, Major and Minor Glyph slot. For example, your level 20 Warrior will not be able to use any Glyphs. Upon reaching level 25 he will unlock 1 Prime, 1 Major and 1 Minor Glyph. An additional 1 each will be unlocked at level 50 ; at level 75 you will be able to equip 3 Glyphs in each category, for a total of 9 Glyphs. This glyph guide will teach you the best glyphs to use for every class depending on whether you are the tank, healer or damage dealer. To get the best performance out of your character in raids, choosing the appropriate glyphs can make a ton of difference in your performance.
