World Bosses in Shadowlands aren't very powerful when you form a full 40-man raid group, which can be done via the premade groups tab very easily across all servers.

Each boss has some amount of mechanics, but these are largely ignorable, and depending on server load, may be impossible to take into account in the first place.

Like all WoW PVE, basic tenants like don't stand in the bad stuff and manage your threat apply, and should carry you through to a very simple one-shot kill.
