For new raiders to the Normal raiding experience, researching a boss encounter can be a new concept. Not everyone studies raid encounter guides or watches strategy videos on YouTube.
While The Dojo recommends such studies, a new raider can always start with the in-game resource of the Dungeon and Raid Journal. It should be noted that as of 5.0.4 all of the encounters in MoP are already in the journal. It’s never too late to start reading up on MoP encounters to be that much more prepared when the raids are opened.
You’ll want to look over the Mogu’shan Vaults, as that will be the only raid open a week or two after Mists is released.
