And what u want from alacrity? Fast cast, low damage and overheat? You don't need cast speed, u live and damage only if nobody attack you, in close combat you die no chance, because INTERRUPTS.
Server: Lord Calypho.
Class: Bounty Hunter - Mercenary.
Name: Sader Bloodthirsty.
Level: 50. PvPrank: 64

Even if it reduced the GCD, Alacrity would still be useless.

We are constrained by resources, not time. Alacrity will not increase the amount of abilities you cast over a period of time, it will only increase the number of auto attacks (rapid shot)

Alacrity needs to increase energy/heat/force regeneration, like Haste does in WoW for rogue energy, DK runes, etc

Agreed, limited resource pools with regressive regeneration, alacrity is not ideal at all.

You can fake cast tracer missile its extremely easy cause every newb in the world tries to interupt it. Besides I can kill a melee without casting a single Tracer its not hard.

Now now, those .2 seconds where he knows he's done casting and he's just waiting on CD aren't wasteful, they're for peace of mind. And you can't put a value on that.

And for PVP? I'd imagine those .2 seconds of putting distance between you and your pursuer would be very helpful. Less time to be interrupted too...

No.

Just no.

Do you even read at all? there's like a bajillion guides out there.
