The boss fights do currently have strategy notes on them; but at this point this guide is merely a preview of what to expect from loot, health pools, abilities etc. Once cataclysm goes live I will revise this from a Preview to an Actual guide, and also eventually do a sister guide for the heroic encounter.

As this is Cataclysm content remember that all content in this guide is subject to change. I do encourage anyone who is in Beta to upload some pictures so I can replace my lovely place holder images (titters)

As usual I encourage any discussion and suggestions in the comment, as I will usually add them in should I deem it conducive.
