    Still unsure about GCD?

    With great teamwork, you can still clear maps as fast as you have prior to GCD. This video reflects the most recent changes regarding GCD, which is decreasing GCD time to about ~0.25 seconds.

    There is also evidence that skill damage has increased, as well as time-to-complete certain combos. For instance, an archer's Cruel Blast combo needed Shattering Scream and Blast Shot to connect within 2 seconds prior to GCD. Now, the connect time has increased to roughly 5 seconds to complete the combo. All this combined with a shortened cooldown from 0.5 seconds to ~0.25 seconds, and your party can go through maps as fast as before.

    Here are the run times of each Balefort Sewers map. A run time begins at first enemy contact and ends at boss death. No elixirs were used in any run. We could've done better...

    The party:
    Mitsuimoon 56 mage
    Echelongx 55 archer
    Ellyidol 56 dex bear
    Urrsus 55 dex bear
    Physiologic 56 archer

    Post-GCD Bandit Hideout run: Finished in 3 mins, 56 secs


    Post-GCD Bandit Stronghold run: Finished in 4 mins, 21 secs
    [Extra video: How to aggro the Queen]


    Post-GCD Catacombs run: Finished in 3 mins, 24 secs


    Post-GCD Roach Motel run: Finished in 2 mins, 49 secs


    Post-GCD Swill Pitz run: Finished in 2 mins, 16 secs


    Total time to complete all BS maps: 16 minutes, 46 seconds

    Nice videos. It seems that PVE has not been drastically affected, and low run time is certainly still manageable. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about PVP...

    They've got a Waterboy reference in the Ancient Swamps

    And yes, the shortened CD time as well as other factors to balance out the GCD has definitely stabilized overall run times at Sewers.

    I don't know if any of you experience this but it seems I have longer time to complete my cruel blast combo on mobs but on bosses it's really short. I can throw one or two skills between the blast combo on mobs but if try to do it on the queen, I get no combo. Anyone else experience this?

    The fact that you can manage by being the lone mage is proof enough that you are not a noob.

    Cmon, Ech, neko and yourself noobs? That must be the highest noob standard, ever!

    @Morawk - I've been getting 5 seconds to complete Cruel Blast pretty consistently (timed it at several bosses including ones from Meathead's Deli, Mardi Growl, and Plasma Pyramid but not Sewers). Maybe those bosses are dodging one of those attacks or you're missing sporadically? I'll try to see if I can time 5 seconds somehow at a Sewer boss.

    @Corpser - If we were a group of level 50s, we would be running slower even if GCD didn't exist.

    @Vallist - I use a Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate w/ Android v2.1; everything is stock.
