As a raid leader, I completely agree. Most of our raiders aren't like this, but we have one who consistently states that it is clearly Blizzard's intention that fights can't be done without the buff, etc.Now, I'm willing to go with this for hard modes -- the fact that Blizzard's encounter designers admitted to never getting past Yogg +3, much less down to Yogg +0 when testing encounters, means that there is some evidence that encounter designers are not able to tune the top end content precisely, so having the ICC buff to turn that knob is useful. (See also: No 10 man strict guilds have cleared H LK yet, even with the 15% buff.)However, 10-man strict guilds cleared ICC 10 to LK -- even without 25-man gear -- in the first month it was available. The fact that we haven't downed LK yet is not because we need to wait for another buff. At the time, the fight in question was Sindragosa, and the reason we were wiping was because we need to get better at not chaining frost tombs, standing where we were supposed to, running out of blistering cold, etc.Using the coming buffs as an excuse to not improve your playing is annoying and frustrating, and I hate that people do it.
