For the record, we do have a similar boss encounter to the one fantasized about at the end of the article, except he doesn't parry spells. Throngus in Grim Batol has his shield that diminishes all damage in front of him by a certain percentage, forcing all dpsers, including ranged, to have to stay behind him as he switches directions around. Ranged often find this maddening, as they're used to standing so much farther away from the boss that they end up having farther to run than melee do to get behind him again. Most of us can correct this by getting in closer, of course, but poor hunters who still need to keep some distance...I personally enjoy that added bit of positioning on that fight (though to be honest, for a mage it's trivial movement), and wouldn't mind seeing more scenarios like that.

Not just Throngus, but Dragha fight in GB benefits ranged to stack up, too. If you fight too far from the dragon, you risk being in a bad spot for her flame breath and have to run through it for a few seconds (unless you're a Mage or something). So these fights are out there.
