So much of what I would say has already been covered, I'll just reiterate the points I feel are the most crucial:1. Know your role before going. My first instance run was Razorfen Downs as a druid. I was told to: "Off-tank/dps and heal as necessary" Uhm. Can anyone ELSE tell me why this is bad? Learn your role. CC is a role, but is usually assumed to be on a DPSer2. Arrive at the instance fully repaired3. Everyone should have 2x as much food and water as they think they'll need. Healers should have 3x as much water. (just in case)4. Use your target icons. Have your tank learn to mark.5. Let the tank pull. Very few exceptions to this (such as when priest MC's the guy in ZA and gets burned down by mobs just before Eagle)6. MC is cool...but not really a reliable form of CC. Never have your healer use it, either.7. Healer and ranged dps: stay at your maximum distance from the mobs/boss. The only exception I can think of to this is when you need to get chainhealed.8. If possible, have all totems planted before a pull9. Patrols. The obnoxious pat is a fun dungeon dynamic. Enjoy it. Ha ha. So fun.10. Don't forget to soulstone someone who can rez people. 11. The most important: HAVE FUN12. The most successful runs of instances (where people aren't crazily over-geared or over-level) are the ones where people FOLLOW THE KILL ORDER. "split-dps" can cause longer battles, lots of frustration and wipes.13. Be Kind. Please rewind.
