Yes, you are right but my question is why is the buff needed at all when people are progressing through content the way they are meant to? DS is a really easy raid compared to Firelands when it first came out. There is no reason to nerf the content/buff the player when the raid is easy already and there are lots of guilds that are progressing through it steadily. It seems like Blizzard has only two demographics in mind...hardcore guilds that get everything done within two weeks of content's release and casuals that need buffs as soon as those hardcore guild had their fun. The other, middle of the pack guilds, are not given the opportunity to even finish off progressing through content before nerfs start going out (same thing happened with Firelands. they released the nerfs way too early). You might say, it's an ego thing, but as a casual raider I feel insulted. It's like Blizzard doesn't have faith in us casual raiders and wants to walk us through content holding our hand and present us with the loot on a platter. Yes, we enjoy raiding for what it is, having fun with friends and killing internet dragons (with moderate amount of challenge). But when those internet dragons get impatient and fall over (aka get nerfed) before we even get to kill them it's really not fun. It's not about clicking the buff off or not, it's about Blizzard and the kind of attitude they have towards us casual/normal raiders. So yeah, I'm not against nerfs to raiding content per se. I'm against unnecessary nerfs (DS is easy as it is) and nerfs that come too early. At least it's an increasing buff just like ICC and won't make content trivial right away...but give it a month before my guild is gonna become bored out of their minds and quit en masse for TOR.
