Wait, haste doesn't affect GCD for melee abilities? Enhancement Shaman abilities included? I could've sworn I attack somewhat faster as I gear up more...

It does. I believe he was just saying that since Physical abilities don't have a cast bar, it can't make them go any faster, but you can still use them more/faster since the GCD will be lower.

"Haste for melee attacks, however, only increases the swing timer of auto-attacks and does not reduce the GCD on physical abilities."Right there. If that info is correct, then Stormstrike and Lava Lash stay on a 1.5s GCD, while Shocks, Lightning Bolt, and Chain Lightning get a reduced GCD.

For enhancement, it will effect the GCD of all of your spell based abilities (Shocks, Chain Lightning, and Lightning Bolt) but it will not do so for your physical based abilities (Lava Lash and Stormstrike.)
