    Skill usage/casting affecting potions consumption

    As per title,

    1) Skill/ability GCD affects potions.
    While i am using a wand or any ability that triggers GCD, i cannot use potions. They are affected by the ability's GCD (the circular blacked out image that appears over skills also appears over potion hotkeys) and i need either /cancel what i'm doing or wait for the GCD to wear off prior to using a pot. Tried it with both a healing and a mana one.

    Potions should be unrelated to skills/abilities GCD and have their own unique cooldown table. Edit: they are some of the few 'spells' that fell under the exception category, in regards to GCD and limitations.

    2) And in this, i cannot be 101% certain.
    While casting, one cannot use potions. Self evident, you need to wait for casting to end, cancel it, or generally be idle before you can use one. I won't go on oath saying this is not how it was in retail, but i distinctly recall using flasks the very instant stuff like WF procced in raids, meaning i did not have to stop fighting or wait for anything. Which is why back then (could not afford a gaming mouse at the time), i had pot hotkeys in my numerical numpads. Had no need to "look down" prior to using one, was only a matter of reflexes.

    I am however personally certain in regards to the first point.

    The current spell handler is in the works to be rewritten /replaced, depending on how long this will take, spell related issues will probably not be prioritized until the new system is in place to prevent having to redo things over and over again :P though, if someone wants to look into it, then they're more than welcome to :D

    i am (entirely, absolutely) clueless in well..anything scripting/programming related. Obviously, lol, yeah :)
    but if/when someone begins the work of rewriting it, it would perhaps be a good idea to upload a sheet/list for everyone else to have a look at. In everyday English that is! ^^
