Disengage Off the GCD

Ghostcrawler on the Beta Hunter Forums:

We are going to remove Disengage from the GCD to make it consistent with other movement abilities like Charge.
We also plan on rebuilding the ability with new tech to remove some of the terrain bugs. This will also allow us to let is suspend snare effects during the leap. Because it involves code, this change will take a little longer.

The cat's ability, Rake, was doing too much damage. We want to keep the pets to very similar dps so that you really feel like you have a choice. If we err, it will be on the side of the exotics.

Disengage off the global cooldown makes it a rather nice ability.  The only problem it has now is that you must have a target selected, be within range and be facing the target.  I would like to see it drop all three of those requirements.  I would even go to say that those requirements being lifted are more important than Disengage losing its GCD.

Cat's Rake ability being nerfed was expected.  Now exotics will be back on top, even if it's only by a small margin.  I still would like to see Animal Handler turned into the ability to train Exotics.  And then have the BM 51 point talent raising your pet's crit chance by 3-5% (4 Pet Skill Points still included).
