Love how people are still arguing when this is one of the hands down best advice right here. This is a game, take it easy. Reading a sentence about what a boss does isn't going to kill you.
"X will cast a fireball at a random target for 50000 damage"
Was that hard? No.
Take it easy, suck it up and search up the fights before you enter a dungeon.
PS. Love how the people that argue against this post are all very under geared players, that don't take their time learning what a boss does.
Yes, because this is our bestest, best character EVA. And you are so leet that you can tell from our GEAR how awesome our SKILL is.
Also, reading about a boss in a RAID is fair enough. I learn every raid encounter ahead of time. It's a raid after all, and you'd be letting your guildies down if you didn't know the fight backwards, regardless of whether they explain it or not.
But you fail to realize the point the OP was making - he was talking about DUNGEONS. Who the hell reads up on a boss encounter for a DUNGEON? Especially a non-endgame one?

Lol, regardless of heroic dungeon or normal dungeon as the player, YOU SHOULD research the fight before hand. Some players don't bother explaining at all cause they expect you to search these fights up. I as a player, really going to go in depth about bosses like Baron Ashbury (SFK first boss) because the mechanic is difficult. You could say just interrupt, but skills like Stay of execution would need to be interrupted after 2 seconds.
It would also save me time if the player had research this before they try out heroics so we could clear the heroic faster. Face the reality, humanity is selfish. Helpful is one thing, but many players get off work to run a heroic and only seeing that they would need to explain to this player what this boss does when he/she could have researched it.
Also, the way I see it. If you are not geared for heroics and complaining about people not explaining fights, you are not dedicated to raiding. I have no means to put down players, but that's how i see it in my server/friends.
Edit*: Also, I was very nice back in WotLK but as i explain more and more, i wipe more and more. People just don't learn, so I gave up trying to teach new players what to do in each heroic. Waste of time.
