As a rogue, it seems like the new system make us more valuable to raids. Instead of making sure x class is in the same group as y class and z class, but x class also needs q class, you get buffs from anywhere in a raid, making composition more flexible and less about min-maxing group buffs. Rogues don't have group buffs, so we weren't contributing anything to the group and were taking up the spot of someone who could have.With the lower HP on raid bosses (designed to reduce min-maxing need), raid-wide buffs, the system of overlapping buffs, no more potion chugging for casters and no downranking for mana efficiency, a rogue may actually be able to find a spot where previously he couldn't.I'm not saying that rogues are going to be the magic bullet making bosses simple, just that raids might be able to make room for one.

rogues are in the same boat as warriors worrying about our usefullness. granted we have shouts, thats last 2 minutes and require rage that can only be acquired in combat and by wasting a gcd combined that they were formerly limited to party. with buffs not stacking i worry for warriors since most of ours are by far inferior to the counterparts supplied by other classes.
