    Shadowlands Beta - Spells Removed from GCD, Class Changes

    Shadowlands Beta - Spells Removed from GCD

    I’ve added two spells to the OP:

    Druid: Innervate
    Monk: Mana Tea

    They no longer invoke a GCD in the latest build of the Shadowlands Beta.

    Shadowlands Beta - Death Knight Class Changes

    We’ve continued to work from feedback that the Unholy opener can take too long to get going. Even with attempts to help alleviate this issue over the last few weeks, it’s still not where we would like it to be.

    Unholy has quite a few iconic abilities and they aren’t easily removed. Thus, our goal with this week’s latest build is to reduce the number of cooldowns in the opener, help out Rune economy, and give access to a baseline AoE Runic Spender.

    Unholy

    • Summon Gargoyle is moved back as a level 50 talent.
    • Unholy Pact moved to the level 45 talent tier.
    • Epidemic is baseline.
    • Dark Transformation has been removed, and its functionality has been added to Apocalypse.
      • Developers’ notes: Legendaries and Conduits that interact with your ghoul while they have Dark Transformation still function as they did prior to this change.
    • Death Coil has updated to reduce the cooldown of Apocalypse by 1.5 seconds.
      • Developers’ notes: When you cast Apocalypse, your Dark Transformation is no longer delayed by a missile travel time.

    Blood

    We have a small update for Blood to address the feedback about the Ossuary talent feeling mandatory.
    • Ossuary is now baseline and learned at level 58.
    • Blood Tap is now moved to place Ossuary was in talents.

    Thanks for the continued feedback! Please keep it coming once you’ve had a chance to test the new build.

    First step towards them simply admitting that the GCD-change was bad to begin with.

    Hopefully.

    Don't know why people hate GCD. Gives me more time to look at the TV when everything is on GCD in between spells.

    I feel like every single week DKs get nice changes. Meanwhile, monks get no fucking changes or fixes. JFC

    Wait, the BDK changes dont make sense... they made Rune Tab baseline and now switched it with Ossuary but both talents are a must have since your Soulbind def talent works very well with Rune Tab (Party gets healed on use by 15% of their HP every 25sec if you got 2 charches 30% for oh sit moments)

    I got used to it pretty fast, didn't really bother me after a few days.
    My greatest fear is that one day, my MMO-Champion ignore list will run out of space.

    They just took Mana tea off the GCD which was a common request once they started taking stuff off the GCD again.

    Epidemic is a welcomed change.

    But now my Gary is a talent again? Why? Who the hell thought this was a good idea?

    There are some cases where it was a little overkill. Mostly with classes that have a bunch of cooldown or short-duration buffs, as you felt like you had to activate a bunch of abilities on the GCD... and THEN you can start dealing damage. Others are fine on the GCD. Personally, I'm kinda sad that CA/Incarnation is off the GCD now as we've lost the AsP gain when using the ability, which will be sorely missed.

    Still waiting on Frenzied Regeneration getting taken off the GCD. Considering its function, it's a prime candidate as a defensive ability to be taken off the GCD. Lost count of how many time I've tried hitting the ability for it to not cast due to spell queuing.

    “It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights — the 'right' to education, the 'right' to health care, the 'right' to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery — hay and a barn for human cattle.”
