Basic Strategies for each of the OPS groups

Hey guys,

I'm currently pledging a guild, and I'm having trouble remembering all of the basics of each of the ops group runs (both in SM and HM), or flat out not knowing what to look out for. I'm current a sent and leveling up a vanguard tank and mercenary healer. While I'm sure there are many different nuisances for the different approaches, where can I find information on the basics for each of the runs and the differences between the modes to look out for?

I'd like to be able to read up on it before the runs as I can tell my guildmates may be running out of patience while I try to learn the ordering of stuff, what areas to keep away from, etc.

Some of the strategies she suggest are not the best way of doing things, but they're all pretty accurate except for a few (which have probably been updated by now). All the mechanics are there though, and she does a good job explaining differences between SM and HM (and Nightmare). The site is also probably the best place to look for guides on server events (Rakghoul plague, Bounty Hunter week, etc), upcoming patches, and new additions to the Cartel Market.

If you're looking for some video perspectives, Drop it Like it's Hoth (DiLiH) and Death and Taxes (DnT) both have great videos for 8 man kills (at least on Nightmare, probably a few HM as well). Severity Gaming is a good place to start for 16 man videos.

Lastly, this forum is a pretty good place to get some advice if you've got questions about specific fights, since many top end raiders frequent it. You can probably search for previous threads that people have made to get some tips on some of the harder fights that guilds have issues with (Dread Guard, TfB, Styrak, etc).

Hope this helps; best of luck!
