Buff homogenization and the Blues dont like you.
Raid buffs and debuffs exist for two main reasons:
1) They encourage you to bring a diversity of classes and specs rather than stacking whatever is highest dps at the moment.
2) They make you feel more powerful in a group than when you’re solo. For an MMO, WoW is pretty soloable, so we like for it to feel really awesome when you’re in a group.
Whenever we read “Without my buff, there is no reason for a group to take me,” our typical response is: awesome. You’ll have to figure out another reason why they should take you.
