Note: Check out Eric's Naxxramas Guide for help gearing up for Ulduar.


Stat Requirements

If you want to check if you are well enough geared check out WoW-Heroes or Be.Imba, these sites will collect character data off the armory and recommend the best instances for you to go to.

I will not post minimum stats for healers/tanks/dps as they are highly controversial and there are whole threads on the internet filled with debate about them. I recommend using the sites I linked taking into account skill level, Ulduar is very reliant on skill; more so than any of the other raid instances. I would also recommend talking to someone who knows your class and spec in game, and asking their opinion.


Ideal Raid Setup

For some fights it is useful to have people able to switch to a different spec (for example and extra tank is really useful on Thorim, while some fights can be done with fewer tanks. Generally I would advise the following:

10 Man

2 Tanks
3 Healers
5 DPS (2 Melee and 3 Ranged)

25 Man

3 Tanks
6-7 Healers
15-16 DPS (5 Melee and 10/11 Ranged)

Good luck soldier!
