I just got the base game and my group and I loved it! So much, that even after 1 session play, I already started looking for the expansions. I know it's too soon, that we should play the base game more. But I thought: maybe not get an expansion already, but proxy a role or two that make the base game much better.

So, are there any roles that you guys wish it was on the base game?

The expansion roles are neat, but none are mandatory IMO. We find Troublemaker and Robber the only mandatory roles in our plays.

Hmm... nothing's really popping out at me as necessary, especially with how subjective of a question this can be depending on the group. Here are my top suggestions, though:

From Daybreak:
Alpha Wolf (which you'll need to look up the rules for)
Paranormal Investigator (P.I.)
Witch (another card swapper like Robber and Troublemaker)
Village Idiot (if only once to see the chaos in action)

From Vampire:
Copycat (the only role that doesn't interact with the newly introduced Marks)

From Alien:
Oracle (for whom you'll need to assign ever player a number, which is as easy as counting up from 1 in a curcle)
Blob (alternative to Tanner... or use both)
Mortician (alternative to Tanner... or use both)

From Bonus Pack 2:
Apprentice Tanner (use in addition to Tanner)
Thing (good substitute for Masons)
Squire (alternative to Minion, especially if your Werewolves are having a tough time winning)

Of these 11, I most recommend trying out Witch, Copycat, Oracle, Blob, and Mortician.

Daybreak is definitely the expansion to buy if you're buying one.

I'd say the Witch, Sentinel and Revealer are good enough and simple enough they wouldn't have been out of place in the base set. We use them way more often than Minion, Hunter or Doppelganger.

The only role from beyond Daybreak that we play with any regularity is Copycat. Copycat has a lot of the subtlety and awesomeness of Doppelganger with none of the complexity.
