    Default Saboteur.

    Why can't sab have GTAE for its traps? This cast time is really lame, its 2014, make it so.

    Yeah, that's exactly what Trap Extension does. No idea what Gunzip is talking about.

    Traps still have a cast time, they're not instant.

    you guys are referring to bombs, I was talking about traps. They have cast times.

    Today we all learned the true meaning of Christmas. And also that Gunzip apparently has no idea of what GTAE stands for or actually means.

    ...And?

    GTAE has absolutely nothing to do with cast times. It stands for "ground target area of effect", meaning that an ability is targeted at a spot on the ground rather than on a unit, such as Rain of Arrows.

    1st 1 in that quote is a trap. I just looked for the 1st gtae macros i had cause i assumed that was what you were asking about. Didnt realize you thought gtae made everything instacast. Gtae macros just save the trouble of manually clicking where you want to drop a trap or aoe it doesnt change the skill.

    I know what the GTAE stands for, why not get rid of the cast time is my point.

    If you knew what it stood for, then you wouldn't have asked for GTAE versions of abilities that already have GTAE versions.

    Didn't realize Sab need more 1-button spams that can be cast with no movement penalty....

    Geez you all are malicious this morning. We all knew what he meant… also, having traps instant isn’t going to be game breaking.

    I think it would be cool to have all those snares as part of a sub soul.

    It's true that sab needs a rework to not be 1-button, but why exactly does it hurt for traps to have no cast time? If it's OP in pvp, then there could just be an arming time duration equal to the previous casting time. Movement penalty isn't really something rogues should have thematically. After all, rogues are supposed to move around and be nimble.
