Burning Crusade Classic - Minimum GCD Raised to 1.0 Second
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
With scheduled weekly maintenance (7:00 a.m. PDT, Tuesday, September 28 in this region), Spell Haste will now lower the global cooldown (GCD) to a minimum of 1.0 second. It has been possible for players to approach a minimum of 0.75 seconds since Burning Crusade Classic launched.

This hotfix is intended to bring the behavior of the GCD in line with version 2.4.0 of Burning Crusade, which the gameplay conditions of Burning Crusade Classic 2.5.2 are based on. Due to a bug in the original 2.4.0 code, players with high Spell Haste in original Burning Crusade were sometimes able to cast certain spells less than second apart, and they would also sometimes be delayed to over a second, based on how their actions were lining up with the server’s tick rate.

With this hotfix, we’ve decided that the fairest and most accurate thing we could do is to replicate the intent of the original game and enforce that Spell Haste cannot reduce the GCD below 1.0 second.

Thank you for all of your feedback on this issue.

    And of those classes, only a fraction of those players are going to know/care/be competitive enough to take full advantage of the GCD mechanics. QED.

    Imagine thinking that in a game this old, released for the players who want to revisit the game they loved, that only 0.1% of them are going to be focused and determined enough for this to have an impact.

    There are barely any Items with Hast on them right now. So how was this even possible?

    Most people probably bitch despite it not even affecting them.

    Mind Quickening Gem.

    Was actually pretty impactful in 5v5 Arena as 4xMage+1 Shaman is a pretty decent comp, it basically centers around using PoM+Pyro Macro on a single person and then cleaning up the rest with Arcane Explosion spam.

    When you're spamming an instant cast, it goes without saying that a .75 GCD is a massive improvement over a 1.0 one.
