Since the release of 4.1, I have noticed an exceptional amount of delay in key presses. I have tried disabling all of my addons, and messing around with the new options for having a cast go off with the downpress of a key, but it is much more difficult to maintain a concise rotation. I am finding it very difficult to maintain a CS-ASx2-SSx5 rotation without clipping CS far more than I am used to. Everything feels a lot more clunky. Is anyone else noticing this?
Here's a better way to describe what's going on, I cast a spell and it works correctly in my case for example Steady Shot, the shot/cast itself works normal but the icon that usually spins aka Global cooldowns stops sometimes and I can not spell queue correctly, it doesn't happen every global but quite randomly.
It can completely throw off ones rotation and I have noticed a huge dps loss in raid and on target dummies.
Yep, I noticed this yesterday too, thought I was going crazy because I'd go to hit the next spell in my rotation and it just wouldn't go off. I also noticed something very, very weird:
Spells normally fire when you release the hot key for them. IE, if Corruption is hotkeyed to 1 and you press the key down and hold it, nothing happens, but when you let go of the key, it fires (keyup event). Yesterday and I noticed the weird clipping I played around and saw that the spells were all firing on keydown events instead (ie, you press the key down and BAM, it casts). This was screwing me up terribly because normally I'd already have the key pressed down waiting for the right time to release it to cast the next spell, and it'd try to use the spell in the middle of a GCD since it was using the keydown event now.
I confirmed this on several spells, opened my options menu to see if there was some new option to change this, called my wife over to show her how it was working backwards, and BAM, the keydown event was the one firing spells again. She thought I was crazy, but darn it, I know what I saw. lol. Not sure if maybe this is happening on and off again or what, but it might be contributing to the problem.
