    Videos/Guides for MOP?

    I've just come back from early Cata and found that both of the guides I used through you tube (Yoggscast and L2R) aren't making videos anymore. What are the best guides/videos for Normal/Heroic raids now days? (Prefereably 25m )

    tankspot has usually been pretty good, my personal experience is w/ 10m (saw you were looking for 25 specifically) but fatboss does pretty good 10m vids.

    Don't use FatBossTV they're full of crap.

    "THIS DOES MANY DAMAGES AND WILL INSTA KILL YOU HELL" Actually does about 80k dmg.

    Use Vox - http://www.youtube.com/gabestah

    Lol use Vox if you want to watch a guide 3x as long as the kill should be

    Fatboss has some very good guides, amusing and full of the details you need to know. I've been following theirs since mid-late Cataclysm, but they seem to be more popular now: http://www.youtube.com/feed/UCxPdH3tv8zuGDBBKCEwruGQ. Tankspot is also great if you don't like FB.

    With the Throne of Thunder raids I have started creating videos as well if you'd like a healer (Mistweaver) PoV: http://www.youtube.com/user/LilithMaw?feature=. I currently have 10-man vids up for Jin'rokh, Council, Tortos, Megaera, Ji-Kun, Durumu, Primordius, Iron Qon, Twin Consorts and Lei Shen.

    Hope that helps

    I do heroic 25 man guides. You can check my channel at www.youtube.com/ruffwarwow or click the link in my signature

    I watch Fatboss just because they're entertaining (their videos always come out after we've killed the boss). They're generally good, short, and funny. Icy-veins written guides are top notch and their videos are also good but less funny.

    Other than that, examine the kill videos/streams of top raiding guilds.

    Also never follow a guide blindly. Many of the bosses this tier have multiple strats that might work better/worse for your raid team.

    Aliena is back for this tier if you didn't know. Can't get enough of that voice and fantastically detailed guides to boot. She also has links to the full unedited kill videos as well which is nice. For 25m, Lore's Tankspot vids are pretty spot on.

    Written guides: Icy-Veins
    Video guides: Fatboss. If Fatboss doesn't have one, I go with Vox only if I have a ton of time to kill.

    I know they aren't the best, but I definitely LOVE the DANGER DOLAN guides..3 videos for each fight, 1 for each role..he tells you only the things you have to worry about for that particular role..For a quick rundown of the fight its great, no fluff or bullshit..straight to the point. "stand in this, don't stand in that" kinda stuff. check them out.

    My only issue with Aliena is that she seems to overestimate the general skill level of people watching her guides. Whenever I would watch her old guides over at tankspot and she would say something like, "and this raid damage is easily healable..." I knew I would have to let my group know to pop def CD's during that part. Other than that, she does a pretty good job.

    I like vox as well, granted the explanation videos are a bit long, but sometimes there are parts of a fight where I just can't grasp the mechanics and he spells everything out very nicely.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
