In Guild Wars 2, one of my favorite skills to use is the ability to unleash a cranky mechanical golem upon my foes.

If you checked the most recent Patch 3.3 PTR patch notes, a comparison of spells would show that Blizzard has reduced a lot of spells' cooldowns by a notable amount. This makes a significant impact on the playing environment on numerous levels, as most of these spells on long cooldowns were long co...
