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.

    I watch a legion vid where CDew was killed in 3 seconds from 100% by an Arms warrior.

    I welcome the change
    Exactly my thinking. And some classes (warriors) benefit from those swifty macros a lot more than others. Makes the game hard to balance.

    you right, vanilla was like this, everything was on GCD.

    They just need to get used to not be able to 1 shoot ppl like they used to do.

    Then just make it a PvP exclusive change. They already have the tech to do it. Don't piss on the PvE gameplay with a sweeping change that they will spend the entire expansion fixing.

    People say Blizzard doesn’t listen to fan feedback. They really do. Not always, of coarse, but sometimes.

    And what fury needs to work within the confines of these gcd changes is a rework.
