Well? What's the update on the defensive and utility stuff you're taking a closer look at? Forgive my anxiousness, but this patch is running out of time.

I actually like GCD changed. I don't think that popping 2 cds and 1 trinket with 1 button press was healthy for the game. It is better as it is now. I think that CD's shouldn't put damage/healing spells on GCD though. It's awkward when you have to wait 1 sec to heal after popping ascendance but for sure I don't want Fury Warriors/F DKs popping all cds with 1 button during stun and dropping you to 15% hp like it was in Legion.

The offensive cooldowns have nothing to do with anything I said or in the post I linked.

???????
I think there are some cooldowns that being on the GCD feel like they slow down play too much. I also don’t like losing time from one cooldown to activate something that you’re trying to overlap with it because you effectively shortened the cooldown duration. Legion had GCDs in an okay spot to me.
