Recently I've been working with my guildmates to figure out what classes to bring to our 10-man Cata raid. Since 10-mans are no longer the smaller easier child you can overgear with 25-man gear, the buffs you bring are even more crucial to setting up a successful raid groups.

And this has gotten me thinking about how we think of classes. We tend to see them mostly as what buffs they bring and their DPS. But often other things are important too, and even more so given that Blizzard wants us to pay more attention to things like CC, mana management, that sort of thing (no more simple stand and DPS fights).

So the topic would be about people posting the interesting and useful things their class brings that won't appear in a buff per class spreadsheet. I haven't made my post yet, but I'll talk about Death Knight-y things like survival techniques, slowing abilities, run speed, things like that. And I'll add the link here when I write it.

edit: Here's my post on the subject: http://runeforgegossip.wordpress.com/20 ... aid-buffs/

Once again I fail at these shared topics, but at least I am enjoying them!

A bit overkill... I didn't realize until I started writing how strongly I felt about this!

I sadly don't have a post that directly relates to this topic, but I'd like to toss my 2c in anyways. Perhaps I may have to change this though...hmmm.

As far as actual raid buffs are concerned, I put up this chart earlier today. It more or less shows the classes/specs and the buffs they can bring to the raid, not to mention the charts original intent in helping Hunters decide which pet to bring out. +1 to Hunter flexibility?

If you added a "this is a shared topic from Blog Azeroth suggested by Shop of Runeforge Gossip" intro, I think your post would qualify. With Shared Topics, as long as you're inspired by the suggested Topic and you tie it back to the community, you've got free reign.

The link I gave earlier wasn't inspired by our original poster, but I felt that it perhaps could lend a bit of help. However, this post most certainly was! :)

I'd been thinking of writing something about organizing 10's for awhile, and this as a shared topic makes it seem like as good of a time as any. It's not entirely related, but close enough.

Took a little different twist with it since I talk about moonkin benefits in raids all the time, but same general principle.
