The change makes it almost impossible to plan ahead on my Smuggler.

The Dark ICONS are unreadable until the GCD is over so you have .25 of a second to pick the next ICON or what spell to use.

The Flashing is BURNING my EYES and is useless since it is actually after the GCD so my spell bar stays dark or greyed out 90 % of the fight.

Four spell bars all flashing is distracting and pointless....my EYES !

There has to be thousands of spell bar methods out there surely you aren't incapable of looking at the 999 well done spell bars and ICONs ?

Thats interesting... has the clock style radial fade with the timer. And I think that works fine, when you only have a few abilities on CD like that video shows.

However, as a Marauder I often have 10+ abilities on cooldown. Having countdown timers on all of them would be a bit too overwhelming if you ask me.

Maybe the clock style radial fade default, with an option to show timers?

My opinion: Provide options! The UI is uncustomizable by add-ons. The least you could do is prove as many options as possible for your own UI. Why should the minority not get to keep these new flashy ones? I ask this even tho I voted that I dislike them.

PS. PLEASE implement the option to disable smart cam >_> It's soo frustrating not being able to cast area spells on someone behind you while running...

How about a following poll: What do you think of cooldowns before patch 1.1:

- The cooldown was working properly. Nothing wrong with it. No need to even touch it.

- The cooldown was so uncool. I prefer something shiny... maybe to see colours of the icons all the time... or some flashy, wash-out, disco effect. Or Justin Bieber's face on every icon.

- What's the UI?

Color scheme on it is bad. Orange/yellow numbers over orange/yellow icons? Bad.

But the basic idea...yes, it's good.
