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...
