Bytesized Heroic Dungeon Guides

You know the feeling when you start a dungeon, clear the trash, get to the first boss and the tank goes "Anyone know tacs?" or worse, nobody says anything and you're fighting the Grimrail Enforcers and Sanguine Sphere keeps getting popped and they don't even know why the boss health is going up...

Yeah, that wasn't frustrating. At all. Not even a little bit. Nope.

The dungeon journal is great for these situations, but only if people read it, so I thought I would throw together some quick and dirty 255 (or fewer) character guides for each boss that can be easily pasted into chat before the pull.

Always wondered if this was intentional or not...
