Racials and Trinkets Off the GCD - Battle for Azeroth Beta
You can see what class abilities are on the GCD in Battle for Azeroth on the WoWDB beta site.

So, in an upcoming beta build (likely next week), we'll be taking racials and on-use trinkets back off of the GCD.

    Look from other side, if they'll keep removing stuff from GCD every few weeks people will be ultra hyped by the time BfA will launch. ;P

    It's not really though, and it makes sense. They've just literally had to put everything on the same playing field with the GCD and essentially go from scratch, determining what's fair and what's balanced. People are just pissed because it means they can't play like handicapped monkey's anymore pushing a few macros.

    Wooooo!! Now add Avenging wrath and similar cooldowns that also don't do anything besides give a damage modifier to future abilities!

    They'd better revert the troll racial buffs then.

    Good, but honestly I'm still profoundly baffled by how they ever thought this was a good idea.

    It's really not that bad on beta. You get used to it.

    for fury the GCD change is devastating. I can see how casters doesn't think the GCD change is a big deal, but with a fast paced spec like fury where you have so many short duration CDs it's just awfull to play on beta.

    Can anyone please post in the thread asking if they'll be taking Void Elf, Lightforged, Highmountain and Nightborne's racial off the GCD too?

    This beats their original point of removing the power macros. Might as well remove all the GCDs or none of them.

    Now to remove the GDC all together.

    i've played both alpha and beta and its useless change that just makes specs feel shit.

    They should just take everything off the GCD so people can macro every ability ever into one button, then the first to press it wins.
    That would make fun gameplay.

    They said 'racials', pretty sure that means all of them, mate.
