26 - Trigger: Global Cooldown Initial Spiral Sweep

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Setup an Icon WA that is triggered by: Status -> Global Cooldown -> (Any ability with a CD)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The expected output is an icon that only shows up during the last ~1.5s (or however long your GCD is) of the ability's CD, on which a CD spiral of 1.5s will appear.

The actual output is an icon that is permanent for the whole duration of the spell's CD, as well as 2 GCD spiral sweeps happening (beginning 1.5s & ending 1.5s)

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
The Global Cooldown status trigger needs to be reworked. It should only display the icon during the last 1.5s (or however long the GCD is for you), not during the whole duration of the ability's CD. It should also not show a false GCD during the very first 1.5s of its CD.

    Well yes, you need to select a cast that doesn't have a CD.

    The Blizzard API doesn't provide a way to check the GCD. The only way to check the GCD is to check the cooldown of a ability without a CD. We allow the user to provide that. That's the "reference spell".
