I disagree that people don't need buffs. Raiding is designed around people being buffed. Blizzard assumes that every raid member is fully buffed when tuning their encounters.It's definitely true that you can't take every spec of every class to a raid (that's currently 27 people, soon to be 30), but I do think the game would be improved if you were able to take whatever mix of melee and ranged you want, and not be penalised by having, say, 8 melee and 7 ranged.As things stand so many buffs are only group-wide that taking anything other than exactly 5 melee dps hurts raid dps. Taking the example of the 8/7 melee/ranged split, having 3 melee outside the melee group hurts both the melee and the ranged dps, since you would have 3 melee outside the melee group and 2 ranged outside the ranged group(s), menaing that none of those 5 players are getting their full quota of buffs.Making all buffs work raidwide would solve this problem, and encounters could be tuned accordingly.
