GHT is a helping addon to hunt down players who use the famous GCD (global cooldown) . The aim of this addon is to ban the GCD hack from WoW and keep it even for every player by saving the in game location and specific time a hack has been spotted on a player, to make it much easier to report to GMs with the said evidence.

It analyzes the combat environment around the player and calculates every player’s skills separately. As soon as a possible GCD hack player has been spotted, the addon prints it immediately on your screen and saves the occurence silently, so it can be reviewed at a later time. The spotted player can furthermore be shouted to your guild.

Supported Classes

  • Warrior
  • Hunter
  • planned: Death Knight (without Unholy Presence)

Possible Miscalculations

The addon’s calculation is based on client sided events. This means, there are several factors, that can distort the result. If someone pops up to have used two skills within 1.2 sec, there is a chance, that this value has been changed by local interferance. To keep those miscalculations to a minimum, GHT saves every event, that may have occured and lists them up under the players name. So if a player has for example 80 logs of undercutting the GCD alert value, there is a lot of evidence to proof the usage of a GCD hack.

Some possible factors:

  • Lag
  • FPS Freezes
  • Alt + tabbing

GCD Test Facts

without hack: 1.66 sec
with hack: 1.10 sec

Hitting the dummy without GCD hack returns an average GCD of 1.66 sec. Where the lowest GCD was 1.283 sec, but only once in those hundred hits. Since the GCD alert value is set to 1.3 by default, it would have been spotted by GHT. On the other hand, hitting dummies with GCD hack on returns an average GCD of 1.1 sec. Where all hits were about 1.07 to 1.15 sec. You really can differentiate between the 1.283 sec, that happens to be that low due to certain miscalculations and the really low 1.1 sec GCD by the GCD hack. On top of that, with GCD hack on, you will see a lot more spottings in GHT, therefore it should be easy to distinguish between real GCD hacks with miscalculations.

GCD Alert Value

You’re able to set the GCD Alert Value to whatever value you want. the default is set to 1.3 sec, to keep the above mentioned miscalculations to a minimum. You can also toy around by setting it to a higher value to check the normal GCD time usage of your team mates or aroundings.


  • /ght track – enables or disables tracking
  • /ght show – shows the Gui
  • /ght gcd [number] – sets the gcd alert to [number]


Does it lag?

No. It parses the combat log only when a successful skill has been used and keeps the calculation time to a minimum. On top of that, Addons such as Recount require much more CPU usage while collecting data than GHT.
