Battle for Azeroth will bring back class raid buffs. Each and every class will have raid-wide buff.
Class raid buffs were removed prior WOW Legion, but Blizzard decided that the mechanic is good and it give very good reason to bring every class into the raid group.
We’ve made a full list of the raid buffs that each class provide. For now we don’t have information about the Shaman buff, but It might be a Crit buff.
Death Knight: Vampiric Aura Party and raid member within 40 yards steal life from their targets, increasing Leech by 5%.
Demon Hunter: Demon Speed – Party and raid members within 40 yards are infused with demonic speed, increasing haste by 3%.
Druid: Mark of the Wild – Infuses a friendly target with the power of the wild, increasing their Versatility by 3% for 1 hour. If target is in your party or raid, all party and raid members will be affected.

Warrior: Battle Shout – Increases the Strength or Agility of all raid and party members within 100 yards by 5% for 1 hour.
It will be quite interesting to see how people will combine the raid buffs especially for mythic+ dungeons. It’s not confirmed that those buff will be active in PVP, but it’s quite possible.
Class raid buffs are something that I’ve missed through the current expansion. This change will make each class very important for the raid groups and in the same time people who like Mythic dungeons will have to plan their group compositions very carefully. For now I can see only possitive effects from this change, but we shall see.
What do you think about the new class raid buffs ?
