    My guess would be because Rogues hit like little girls.

    The lesser GCD was taken into account when they balanced the classes. I'm not saying they are perfectly balanced, but close enough...and the imbalances that exist are NOT due to differing GCDs.
    I have played all callings.

    An ability every single GCD for the entire Rift WILL get you gold, regardless of the fact you have a 1.5s GCD. I was doing this with my Riftblade, ensuring I never ran out of power with my ability selection, and got gold contribution every single time.

    The real problem is that contribution shouldn't be based on spamming abilities. I know that basing it off damage/healing done would make the rewards less accessible to the lower levels in a rift party, but requiring us to spam abilities is not the answer. If I want gold, I can't properly institute my DPS rotation, because I'll run out of power using Fiery Burst off the GCD.

    If you are casting, the global cooldown is going during your cast-time so you really do not see much cooldown at all unless you are trying to spam instants.

    Pyromancer has ability to lower global to 1second each

    Everyone has 1.5 seconds except for Rogue which has 1second.

    So, there is this other game.. we won't mention.. all classes have a 1.5 GCD except rogue. It has a 1.0s GCD. Sound familiar?
