I haven't seen one, So an arms/pvp Guide would be great for those of us coming out of a tanking role to PvP for a while
-Any Instance or Encounter Guide
-Leveling Grinding Spots
-Detailed Profession Guides (Blacksmithing, Engineering, Mining)
-Paladin or Druid Guides
-Raid Leadership, Guild Leadership Guides
Also, to those with a gear guide:
I finally got the item links working on the frontpage. We may be able to put more gear guides to the frontpage, not just on the forums.
Know a good guide? Ask the author to post it here!
Got a suggestion?
You know what would be nice, actually? Tanking guides for raiding encounters. When I first started raiding, I was petrified the guides on Bosskillers and WoWWiki just weren't detailed enough for a new tank. Hydross is great example. There are just certain things that tanks need to know that the boss guides never share.
Paruhdox, not sure how far you are in progression, but could you possibly write one for BT? It's newer to me (been there twice?) and I'd like to be as prepared as possible. (I've done the first three bosses, although some of the trash I didn't understand as it was trash everyone else had done before so the pulls were quick and unexplained, so a trash description as well would be lovely).
Your other two guides are developing nicely, by the way.
A good starter guide for paladins is Gestalt's "Tankadin 101", found on his forum:
Tanking guides » Tankadin 101
... or copy-pasted into a thread on the Maintankadin forums by site admin, Aergis:

I am the light that brings the dawn.
Something Wicked this way comes.
I'm thinking about writing a BC Shield Block Value Gear Guide. Think it would have any value?
i'm hoping thousands of value =o ok in all seriousness.... a SBV guide would be AWESOME
Please Geek Responsibly.
If you ever want to inquire as to my random weird and sometimes radical theories don't be afraid to ask and give your constructive input
I'm going to work on a guide to casual raiding guilds when I get some time (rl+the game=barely time to sleep). This will be from the perspective of what worked for my old guild in Everquest, a casual raiding guild (also referred to as a perfect guild - no joke) I was a part of for 4 years. It will most likely be a few MS Word pages long.
Psychostomp's been on me to help with a druid guide for a couple of months now. What are you looking for in terms of the guide? Gearing, tank strats, yelling at your dps is quixotic ways telling them you only have one taunt, all of this?
Finally hit 25K armor, w/ 28% dodge, so am almost content.
I've been slowly compiling a paladin guide. I really wanted to wait a while while I gathered more raid exp in that role before I decided to tackle something like this. The interaction between myself and my warrior and druid guildies that I tank with weekly compounded that idea. At any rate its in the works and hopefully with video
The most stressful, yet provides the most gratification..
Just wondering if these guides will be useful:
1. All you need to know about Crowd Control
2. Normal 5-man instance guides
3. Marking and You: A Guide to Leading an Instance Group
4. Painful Useless Groups: because everyone you know are offline
1. how many times have we heard some tanks ask the Mage to Polymorph an Undead creature?
2. knowledge is power, even when doing an instance for the first time
3. because people always expect the tank to lead and mark
4. because of #3 and because you might not have a choice
Wondering if I can get a green light on any one of these so I can waste more time at work, and yet be productive at the same time.
EDIT: Forgot to mention my experience is mainly in running 5-mans over and over and over again with my Priest g/f, in Arms/Prot and Prot specs.

I've got more plate than your grandma's cupboard.
If I may be so bold, I could offer to write up some sort of raid leadership guide if no one else is working on one.
