Many people first visited our website looking for strategies to kill Onyxia and Ragnaros. Try Googling for Onyxia or Ragnaros!
When less than 30 guilds world-wide had killed Onyxia (March '05), we decided to give it a try. This was before we even had 40 members in our guild. Pacifist and The Goon Squad combined forces and spent 4 nights in a row wiping for hours on end trying to figure out the fight. Remember, this was long before much information was available publicly about Onyxia.
We had a problem with people needing to get caught up on what our current strategy was. We were sick of explaining it to everyone over and over on a nightly basis. So I started compiling what we knew about the fight and what our strategy was into the first edition of the Onyxia guide. Eventually, we killed her, I polished off the guide with some fancy screenshots, post it on our website, and thousands of people have found it useful since then.
The Ragnaros guide was more of a side project that people were just bugging me to do. It gets about as many hits as the Onyxia guide these days, so I can only assume that people are finding it useful.
About 6 months ago I got an email from someone at BradyGames. They told me that a Dungeon/Instance guide was in the works and they were interested in using my Onyxia guide in their book. This sounded like a very rare opportunity, so I jumped on it. After a few weeks of formatting and editing the Onyxia guide to meet their requirements, it was ready to go. The Onyxia guide was going to be in print!
Then I offered to write a complete BWL guide. This was something I had sort of wanted to do and publish for free like the Onyxia/Ragnaros guides, but having the chance to write it for publication in a book was much more appealing.
After a month or so of work, the first revision of the BWL guide was ready to go. It went through many editing passes and came out to be a top notch BWL guide that covers everything about the instance and should help a lot of guilds by providing thorough, accurate information on every fight.
I also offered to write quick guides on all the outdoor dragons (Lethon, Emeriss, Taerar, and Ysondre), which you can find in the book.
Most importantly, I got the chance to edit the entire guide cover to cover. I can promise you that 99% of the information in this guide is correct, thorough, well presented, and top quality. I have read the entire thing and sincerely suggest picking it up if you have ever wanted a complete instance guide at your fingertips. It is a high quality publication.
SO GO BUY IT
