It is important to note that a major problem with WoW was the constant nerf/buff cycle. It made it very difficult to pin down a role in game. Warriors became sub-standard tanks for a long time, leaving warrior players without a role, due to other clasese being buffed as opposed to warriors being nerfed.

I think so long as a nerf or buff is justifiable then it should be done, but it should be done sparingly. In any PvP game a buff to one class may be a nerf to another. So in that respect it is better to nerf the NPCs if that is the issue rather than buff the player. In PvP its all about balance, so whichever action is more appropriate, buff or nerf, should be taken.
