Throne of Thunder LFR Guide - Part 1
The raids in Mists of Pandaria make up the top level of PVE content in the game, and patch 5.2 brings even more of it to Mists of Pandaria. Through the LFR (Looking for Raid) system almost anyone can get in to and complete this top level content.
World of Warcraft Patch 5.2 brings with it the release of the Throne of Thunder raid which is the third tier of raiding in Mists of Pandaria. While it is considered one raid for normal and heroic mode, for LFR players it will be broken up into four sections. Each of these sections will be available to queue for separately and will each be covered by a separate guide on this side.
To be able to queue for this raid through the LFR system you must have an average item level of at least 480. If you do not have that yet, make sure you challenge yourself with the other previous raids to earn the required gear requirements and then return to this guide.
This guide covers the first section of the Throne of Thunder LFR and the three bosses you will encounter in it. They bosses found here are Jin'rokh the Breaker, Horridon, and The Council of Elders. This guide is meant for LFR players only, as it covers to most critical elements of the LFR version of each encounter. The full versions of these fights are more complicated and demanding and require more in depth knowledge than provided here.
Similarly, tanks are covered here briefly and it is possible to get through the LFR version with what is listed, but really if you are a tank you should do some more research and know the fights in more depth.
As an added bonus each boss also has a really short version of the essentials that can simply be pasted into raid chat to ensure that everyone knows the 25 words or less version of the fight.
If you can't dazzle them with your skills,
then bamboozle them with your footwork!
