Complete guide to the Brawler's Guild
Credits: I used Patch 5.1: Brawler's Guild Guide - Wowhead News as the main portion of this, but re-did a little bit of it, plus brung it all over to here
So, without further ado, here it is.
Obtaining an invitationThere are three ways to gain admission into the Brawler's Guild. While all players can zone into the special areas in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, only players that have obtained an invitation can participate in boss fights.
This invitation gives all characters on your account access to the Brawler's Guild.
Black Market Auction House
10 invitations are put up on the BMAH each day, with a starting bid of 1,000 gold
Rare Spawns in Krasarang Wilds
There are three faction-specific rares the Alliance and Horde can kill which have a very low chance to drop the invitation, as well as epic PvP trinkets.
Invitation from a Friend
This item has a one-time use and is BoE. You can send it to a friend or put it on the AH for a profit.
The Brawler does not get additional invitations in the mail, but can do Brawler's Guild on alts to rank up and send more invitations to friends.
Alliance: Bizmo's Brawlpub is located inside the Deeprun Tram. When you enter the Tram from the Dwarven District, take the left ramp down on the first set of tracks. Follow the opening in the track wall down to the pub.
Horde: The Brawl'gar Arena is located in the northern part of the Valley of Honor. It has a distinctive pink/purple portal when you get close to it.
Vendor ItemsThere are several consumables Brawlers can use in the arena. These are sold by Quackenbush (Alliance) or Paul North for Horde.
Several vendors, such as Lidiya Peyton for Alliance and Esme sunshadow for Horde, sell rotten items, which gives the debuff You Stink! - Spell - World of Warcraft. These last for 20 seconds, and stack infinitely, and are primarily used for the achievement Haters Gonna Hate - Achievement - World of Warcraft.
Boss FightsThere are 36 bosses in the Brawler's Guild. After you have defeated all of them, queuing at Rank 8 will give you one of the random Rank 1-7 bosses.
You need to kill 4 bosses to rank up, and each rank has a certain set of bosses that get progressively harder over time. Unfortunately, the Brawler's Guild is only for DPS specs--if you take too long to kill the bosses, the bosses will cast a Rain of Fire.
You can use normal consumables and buffs, as well as special Brawler's Guild consumables. Dying will resurrect you a short run away…but you will have the shame of dying in front of everyone.

Dark Summoner: 3,925,233 HP
Dark Summoner is a ghost that starts the fight invulnerable. He periodically summons ghosts that will one-shot you if they reach you. The trick is to stop them with a self-buff you get on this fight, Guardian's Light, and after you kill one, the Summoner's shield is lowered for a small period.
Battletron: 9,595,014 HP
Battletron is a construct that spawns 7 swirling orbs that detonate when you or a spell travels through it. If you kill three of the seven mines, they all will respawn. The trick is to kill a few and then DPS through that open window.
