One of the hardest things in World of Warcraft is making the transition from leveling and playing casually to joining raids or even dungeon groups. YouTuber LazyPeon's video, tuned for Warlords of Draenor, helps a lot.

It's a really good summary of everything, from UI setups to group communication, that's necessary to do to make this step. It'll be a bumpy ride, but at the end, you'll be able to beat all the raid bosses, just like Finnish top guild Paragon did a few days ago, as you can see in the above pic.

Here's a quick summary of the ten steps:

  • Set your keybindings
  • Research your class and its specs
  • Learn to interrupt, dispell, and decurse
  • Try different roles
  • Track cooldowns
  • Be communicative
  • Research boss fights and boss mechanics before the encounters
  • Optimize your character
  • Learn how crowd control works
  • Practice

And don't forget: When you're in a group and something bad happens, always blame the healer. If you are the healer, always blame the tank. (Just kidding, find a friendly guild or a nice group of people and you won't have to blame anyone.)
