anyone know why these two spells would share the same recast timer?

cast whipser and gesture greys out with it and vice versa.

Goading Gesture is a scaling taunt (20-50) which was released as part of the Splitpaw Saga (June 2005)

It shares its recast with *all* single target fighter taunts as all fighters can obtain it; since it only scales to 50 and not beyond you can pretty much ignore it.

Since Insidious Whisper is by far the best single target fighter taunt anyways you should never ever need to cast Goading Gesture anyways.

yeah i see your point, but is it a bug that two different spell lines share a reuse timer like that?

ive been 90/300 for a long time  and i just recently dug gesture up  , cause i figured a extra taunt cant hurt.

but i just found it kind of weird that its sharing a timer with a whisper like that

Its been like that and designed like that since Splitpaw as it USED to be an alternative taunt which was the same size but had a 10% chance to proc for twice the amount.

It was designed to be on the same recast; don't ask me why but its not a bug it was designed that way.

All classes splitpaw spells share times and most all fo them are inferior.Healers get a single target heal that returns a portion of the power used. I kinda think they should just make it a seperate timer ability that any class can use.
