Minimum Global Cooldown Cap Changed

Recommended Posts

Blizzard have announced a change to the minimal global cooldown reduction after haste, coming with this weekly reset:

With scheduled weekly maintenance (7:00 a.m. PDT, Tuesday, September 28 in this region), Spell Haste will now lower the global cooldown (GCD) to a minimum of 1.0 second. It has been possible for players to approach a minimum of 0.75 seconds since Burning Crusade Classic launched.

This hotfix is intended to bring the behavior of the GCD in line with version 2.4.0 of Burning Crusade, which the gameplay conditions of Burning Crusade Classic 2.5.2 are based on. Due to a bug in the original 2.4.0 code, players with high Spell Haste in original Burning Crusade were sometimes able to cast certain spells less than second apart, and they would also sometimes be delayed to over a second, based on how their actions were lining up with the server’s tick rate.

With this hotfix, we’ve decided that the fairest and most accurate thing we could do is to replicate the intent of the original game and enforce that Spell Haste cannot reduce the GCD below 1.0 second.

Thank you for all of your feedback on this issue.

      We're taking a look at some FAST punching low level characters, as these are some incredibly speedy fists, capable of taking down up to 26 levels higher players and, well, just looking crazy awesome!
      Exehn has been working on this one for a while, as we have two versions of the fastest fists on Azeroth, both with 442% Haste, but one staying at level 1, while the other goes to 6 to take advantage of Seal of the Crusader for an extra 40% attack speed, culminating in a 0.2 second swing! While we can't really know if it's really the fastest swing speed ever in WoW, it seems like a pretty safe bet. Check out as Exehn takes down level 32s and even plans to level this character to 70 using only punches!
      You can check out all the gear used here, and here's the original speedster, the level 1 punch master!

      Brewfest is again up and running on all realms, and will end at 23:59 server time tomorrow, October 5. Developers’ note: We initially set up Brewfest 2021 in Burning Crusade Classic to run for the same duration as it ran in 2007 in original Burning Crusade, but we’ve decided to bring it back for another day.

      All "pre-made" groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds with the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region.

      With the next weekly Burning Crusade Classic reset in each region, all “pre-made” groups will again be allowed to queue for Battlegrounds.
      After this hotfix, grouped players will primarily face opponents who queued in groups of similar sizes and the matchmaker will now match raid groups of 6 or more players against at least one group of 6 or more players.
      If the total number of players in your raid is smaller than the maximum size of the Battleground, the matchmaker will automatically fill your side with other groups or individuals. If there are no large pre-mades in the queue, party groups of 5 or fewer players will be placed against other parties of 5 or fewer players.
      Please note: Queuing alone or in small parties will not guarantee an opposing team with no large pre-mades.

      We have some hotfixes for BCC, featuring the infamous Kael'thas phase 3 threat bug, item restoration for disenchanted items and more.
      September 23 (Source)
      Burning Crusade Classic
      Items that are disenchanted should now be available on the Item Restoration support page to self-restore, as long as the materials gained are still present. Creatures and NPCs Some missing NPCs around the world are now visible again. Dungeons and Raids Fixed an issue where enemies, such as Kael’thas Sunstrider and Lady Vashj, could wipe threat from their primary target after mind controlling players. Quests Fixed an issue preventing Druids in Flight Form from using Skyguard Bombs during the “Bombing Run” quest and using Skyguard Blasting Charges during the “Fires Over Skettis” quest.
