I found a solution to the flashy action bar... I wear my sunglasses and no I'm not kidding.

I don't judge a game by how old or new it is, I judge it by what it is when it is presented to me.

It's a step or two up from before.

Unfortunately last patch changing the indicator from its vanilla state was several steps back.

Just want to add another voice of disapproval with the new darkened icons. As the OP mentioned, it is now MORE difficult to tell what is unavailable and what's on global cooldown. If I didn't have most of my abilities memorized, i'd be having a pretty hard time right now. I preferred the prior system.

Again, this does not mean I don't want the Cool down effect changed.

But you can see especially on the left hand bar, not all abilities flash. Surrender when on cool down doesn't. Abilities that ignore the global cool down don't, etc.

I prefer a system of abilities grayed out if not available. Not grayed when available. So much more intuitive system.
