Adventure Guide

The Adventure Guide, also known as Adventure Journal, was introduced in patch 4.2.0 as Dungeon Journal but later revamped in patch 6.2.0. It lists the phases, abilities, and loot of bosses for raid instances, outdoor raids, dungeons and suggests content at your current level. Notably, the guide does not directly specify tactics to overcome the abilities, leaving the players to figure out the encounter strategy on their own. Each expansion has its own background color.

The Adventure Guide will be unlocked at once reached level 11.

Suggested Content

The Adventure Guide suggests content based on a number of factors, such as character level, item level, quest progress, achievements, and more. The Guide is fully interactive, allowing players to accept relevant quests or search for a group via Group Finder with a single click.
