Adventure Guide as of Dragonflight.

The Adventure Guide, also known as the Adventure Journal, was introduced in patch 4.2.0 as the 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 unlocks once the player reaches reached level 11.
